I’ve been fortunate that my best friend is a runner. She talked me into running as I continued to fail to lose my extra 15 pounds. I look back and I’ve been running for about 12 years and have raced close to 60 times.
I did lose the 15 by the way – though they sometimes attempt to visit me from time to time. I used to race for time/speed but as I’m getting older it’s been a mix of time and running for fun.
I have volunteered at a couple races and quickly came to see how much work is involved and how key volunteers are. I love the vibe of a race and the Snohomish Running Company is all about putting the runner first. I’m excited to be helping out for another year.
