I am a 20 year old electrical engineer in collage still. Lisa and I started running September of this year. I use to run and walk at least a hour a day a couple years ago, but school just got in the way. This year at Dragon Con we went to a panel called Geek Girls Run. A group of nerdy/geeky people just like us cosplaying and running in races. For those people who don't know anything about cosplaying, it is basically dressing up in a costume of character/famous person. For example running with a wonder woman costume on. That was the beginning of the running craze that we have now entered.
Running has become a great outlet for stress in my life. I am hoping to eventually complete an ultra-marathon, but that is still in the far future. I want to get stronger and healthier and be able to run injury free before I get to that.
One thing that everyone will eventually learn about me is that I never do anything half hearted. When I start something I will not give up until I accomplish my goals. I have a few other hobbies that might come up in the blog if there is any interest. I sew, knit, crochet, and read. . . a lot. So expect some posts about my adventures into creating running cosplays and running books. Well thats about it for me, thanks for reading what Lisa has already dubbed an essay.
I am a 22 year old nursing major in college. As Lindsay said we started running in September of this year. (FYI Lindsay said whatever I was going to say so I won't repeat it and bore you. :D ) I always wanted to be a runner and participate in races. However, since I have no motivation, I never pulled through. But now Lindsay makes me.My parents don't see why I work out or go out running. Since to them I don't need it...
I started running because I want to become stronger. I'm a little weakling that would trip on thin air and my own feet. My goal is to at least do a marathon and go up to an ultra-marathon. Right now we are only doing 5k and then we will go up from there.
I also enjoy sewing, scapebooking, origami and read...I am also into beauty stuff like makeup!! I love it. You will probably see me post a little bit of everything along my journey. Hope you enjoy. :)
