Francesca E @francescae

I have to update my bio because I originally said I hated running. However, these past couple of weeks I've come to realize I don't hate running after all. What sparked this strange behavior? Running in the dark and in the rain! I'm still not good at running by any stretch of the imagination and will never be fast, but I no longer care. I have a newly-found sense of accomplishment and I just want to get out there. I was a sprinter in school and no good whatsoever at distance running, so now I'm approaching 'Over The Hill' status, I have made it my mission to prove that I can run far. To date I have run several 5ks, one 8k and two half marathons and have just embarked on training for a full marathon. It's OK, you can call me crazy.

Contributorgold Graham H thank you francessca for the follow and i am so happy for you that you have managed to change a perception, i get the feeling your quite kick ass and are really enjoying the power to change things that were "i ll never do that " to things that become " oh yeah i do that 3 times a week" you rock and with that attitude you will not need my luck and best wishes to achieve all your goals, but i send them anyway , :)

Planned to run 15 miles but only managed 13. App crapped out on me four times, I usually run out and back but didn't realize the trail ran out after 6.5 miles ..... and then I hurt big time, so cut my losses and went home. #disappointed.
