an introduction

Hi! I’m Becca, and I am addicted to running. I won’t repeat everything I typed up in the about page, so here are the high points:

I’m addicted to running, running far.
My goal is to run my first 100-miler before I turn 21, which is in December 2013.
I am very addicted to running.
Running is the best antidepressant.
Runners make the best friends.
Trails > roads, always.
Did I mention I love running?

This blog will allow fellow (bored) runners to track me throughout my quest to 100 miles.

First running update: I ran my last pre-race run this morning, a nice little 4.2 miles as the sun was coming up over the city. Taper weeks are killer, but effective. Running 12 miles in one week as opposed to one morning is rough, but by the time the race comes around, I’m itching to go. The first 16 miles of the race are the pure joy of, “HOORAY I’m running again! And I don’t have to stop for hours and hours!” I’ll be running a little 100-person 50k in Cambridge, OH this weekend – the Buckeye Buster 50k. The finish is a quarter-mile uphill with about a 200 ft elevation gain. Evil. Needless to say, my mountain running last weekend should come in handy…

peace love and running!
