Welcome back Andrea!! Andrea will add speed, discipline and diligence to the team. She has been working super hard for the past two years and I know she has a big PR in store for her come November.
As I rounded the Art Museum into a wall of wind during my first full marathon this past November, I knew I owed it to myself to run another. At mile 14 I realized the ‘A Goal’ of sub-4 hours was going to be incredibly difficult. I finished just under 10 minutes away from my goal, so I’m back for more. And this year, sub-4 hours will be the ‘B Goal.’ Not to mention, I really enjoyed the training. Like, really enjoyed it.
In addition to the full marathon, I have also completed 6 half marathons, 4 Broad St. Runs and 4 15k’s – all since joining the running community in 2013. I hope to become a better runner mentally (I tend to over analyze everything) and trust that I can indeed run as fast, or faster, in a race than I do in training.
I’m looking forward to being a part of the You Should Be Running group again along with some of my favorite running buddies from last year in addition to some new faces (and paces) on the team.
