I joined Pfit to conquer the marathon in 2010.  Portland Marathon was my first marathon (of three) and I have been running with Pfit ever since then.  I began to coach in 2012. I love running because it is a cheap easy way to feel accomplished, and also use it as my social time with my friends.  We always have girl therapy/chat time when we go running, and now we try to plan out destination races for girls' weekend too. My goal for 2018 is to keep moving and keep my fitness.  I am getting married in March and need to slim down for that, and Shamrock Half is my regular "pull me out of my winter blahs" target.  I would like to do more cross training and interval training this year as well.
