    I started running in 1980.  I had just graduated from college after having played basketball all 4 years and found myself needing something physical to do.  But what?  Well, thanks to my sister, I started running and never looked back.  It was one of the best gifts she could have given me.

    Running keeps me sane!  It’s my passion, maybe more so know then when I was younger.  It’s one of the purest sports that I know.  I love the peace of the solo runs, but yet I also like to run with other people. It continues to challenge me to improve and be the best I can be.  I feel very blessed and also grateful.

    I’m not sure of the exact date, but I joined SPRR at the first beach race.  Ben and Pat were so welcoming.  I’d never belonged to a running club before.  I felt like I belonged.

    I think probably my favorite distance is the marathon, although I like all the distances.  Probably the most special race was my first Boston in 1989.  I had to run 3:30 to qualify and I ran 3:29:40!  At that time I was a teacher and the students and teachers were all very supportive.  The kids made me signs and the teachers took up a collection to help with expenses. It was great.

    Running Boston for the first time was great, but then running Boston again 25 years later was also pretty exciting. That year I ran with a stress fracture. It was probably the hardest race I’ve ever done, although this year’s Boston was hard, too, because of the terrible weather.

    My next big race is the California International Marathon Dec. 2.  Then in the spring I’ll either go back to Boston or to London.  I just want to keep running.  One of my mantras is “you can do more than you think.”  My advice to all you beginners, stay the course and don’t do what I do (because I probably over train).  Happy running!

    THANK YOU DEB FOR BEING OUR MEMBER OF THE MONTH FOR SEPTEMBER!
