veggiegirl88 asked me “Favorite film?” 

I answered…..”Too hard! I am an absolute fan of chick flicks, comedies and running movies. Don’t necessarily have an all time favorite movie!”


So you may be wondering what I’m going to do now since I’ve completed my half marathon.

I might just have an answer for you!

It’s as easy as this: 5k

I’m going to take you on a little path of my 5k past.

high school
Freshman year: I was running 27’s for my 5k
Sophomore year: I was running 27’s and 26’s for my 5k
Junior year: I was running 25’s and 24’s
Senior year: I was hardly able to run 5k’s because of my legs.

9/26/09:    23:40
12/05/09:  23:57
1/09/10:    23:18

5k PR as of now: 22:40(en route to a 4 mile race)

As you can see from the start of my running and to the middle of winter I have dropped 5 minutes from my 5k time. It is now spring and I am wondering where my 5k time is.

Goal 5k: High 19’s low 20’s.

Possible? I’m going to try my hardest to do it and that’s all I can do.

My all time favorite quote “Don’t tell me the sky’s the limit, when there are footprints on the moon”

I need to find something with that quote so I can buy it because it has come to play so much recently with people not believing in me. There are some people who refuse to think I will ever be fast because I don’t have a history of being fast. But’s hard to be fast when you have bi-lateral Compartment Syndrome that doesn’t allow you to run without pain.


Things that make me happy

Those who believe in me
Those who think I’m fast
Runners in general

(by the way I didn’t get my room situation figured out, so I’m not happy about that anymore)
