I’m Elizabeth, a runner from Minneapolis now based in Seattle.
I realized running was one of my favorite things back in high school, when cross country was the only sport I stuck with all four years–I still get excited to pull on my CC spikes for the annual alumni race. Since then (a decade or so has passed) I’ve read, listened, watched, and just got out and taken a hands (feet?) on approach to learning about this soul-defining hobby. A weekend day or two a month you’ll find me at my part-time gig at the oldest specialty running shop in the Cities. During the week I work in web content strategy downtown.
Sometimes my wife (Jen) runs with me, and even more awesomely, she’ll stand/bike/camp in the rain/sleet/cold/sunshine to cheer me on during a race. Plus she cooks the *best* meals–delicious nutrition is important for running fuel/recovery, and for the taste buds of course.
What is the point of this blog? It’s a place to write about running. And pizza. And life. Who knows what that’ll morph into…
