A little about me

1. I absolutely hated running growing up. Now I can't imagine life without it!

2. My family is spread out all over the country so to me, my friends are like family.

3. When I am not at work I am in running clothes, always! 

4. It drives me bonkers to end a run on anything other than .00 or .50

5. I love to run in the rain, it makes me feel like a kid again.

6. My hair is really curly, so every day is a bad hair day!

7. I sweat a lot, so that also means I also chafe...a lot.

8. Last year I encountered quite a few setbacks due to injury and a cancelled race, so this year my motto has been "Do Epic Sh!t" (I don't normally cuss, but there is no substitute for that statement)

9. I have to use the restroom at least 4 times before every race start. Seriously!!

10. Running with friends is the equivalent of a Girl's Night Out for me.

11. I started running because I was inspired by a patient at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, that is why I am so passionate about running the St. Jude Marathon. #GoLucyGo

12.  I believe that friends are a blessing and that they should be cherished!

13. When I hear a song I love in the car, I dance and sing to it no matter who sees me.

14. I get so excited when someone tells me about overcoming their farthest distance or achieving a special goal, I want to give them the biggest hug!

15. This is my favorite race picture ever!! 

Do you have any funny running quirks? Tell me something about you!


  1. Yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes! I sometimes sing when I run, too...if one of my favorite songs comes on.

  2. I have been known to start dancing mid run too Wendy <3

  3. I too HATED running growing up.

  4. I would have never guessed that Abby!! So glad we have found a love for it, if not, how would I ever have met you! Missing you my friend!
