MFP Runner Friends

Hi all,

I live in Denver, CO. I am married with four fur babies. I work in marketing and have my own photography business. I love to travel, eat (my downfall), run, hike, and climb big peaks. I started running 3 years ago, in spite of being incredibly nonathletic all my life. Since then, I have run 2 marathons, 2 halfs, and over 10 other races. Now, I am training for my first 50K in May.

Would love to get to know some fellow runners for inspiration. Please feel free to send me a friend request. :)

Joni

    I'm just starting . . . again. I have run two half marathons, numerous 5Ks and two 10Ks. Have signed up for three 5Ks, two 10Ks, and a half marathon this year. Currently doing more walking than running, trying to build a better base this time around than in previous attempts. Would love some running friends for inspiration and motivation.

    I'm in for running MFPals! B) I'm a cyclist and adrenaline junkie who started running last spring after recovering from a broken wrist (see: adrenaline junkie). I trained up to my first-ever 10K in May and kind of just never stopped.

    I'm currently waiting on my work schedule to pick out a hopeful May road marathon. I like to travel for races (I live in a one Wal-Mart kind of town), so any recommendations are welcome.

    Ooooh! Me too. I'm training for a half in March (trail run in MD, @cheshirecatastrophe‌) - my first, so I'm not as accomplished as most of you guys, but I love love love seeing runner updates on my newsfeed. Motivates me to get out there and go even when it's cold.

    I'm in too! Always happy to get friend requests from other runners looking to share encouragement and experience.

    I've done a handful of half's and one full. My pace is pretty pedestrian but I try :smile:

    I would love more running friends, feel free to add me! In the next 9 weeks I have 3 10K's and a 5 mile trail race. In a few weeks I will start training for half #5 (in April) and a 25K in May. I might sign up for another half in June.

    Nice to meet you all! Thanks for the add! I realized I misspoke in my first post. I've actually done 3 half marathons. One was a trail marathon, and it took me just under 3 hrs. Can't forget that one! Trails are my favorite place to run but I don't always have enough time. Next race is another half on Feb. 8th. Hoping we don't have a freak blizzard or something equally crazy that day!

    me too :)
    I am doing my 2nd Ultra in May ( 34 miles ) and 3rd in July - the LL50.

    I am finding it hard to drag myself out of bed to run at 6am so speaking to other runners may motivate me :blush:

    Sending friend request, I just started a marathon training plan. I'm hoping to run a half and a full marathon by fall.

    @davis_em What trail run are you doing in March? Wouldn't be the BoMF Half, would it?? That will be my second HM...getting excited already :smile:

    It's the rosaryville off-road half in upper Marlboro. Not sure if it's the same. If it is, it'll be a long drive for you the morning of. :). What's the BoMF? And where? Mine is March 29.

    Heya gang! Feel free to FR me as well, I LOVE the running community, so any fellow runners are always a happy welcome on my Newsfeed! You'll see in my profile that I have a whole slew of runs added to my 2015 calendar. Looking forward to the year!

    FR sent! And others, please feel free to add me as well! :) Currently training for my 9th half marathon (April) and 2nd full marathon (May), and learning to love the treadmill (ugh).
  • Hey guys! I'm new here and would love to be friends with all of you. I just ran my first full marathon in December and can't wait to run more. My mom's an ultra runner and it took me a while to really learn to love running but somehow, it happened :smile:
