Welcome! My name is Emmeline and I love football, food, and really really love running. Oh, and puppies. LOVE puppies. This is me:
Sorry I have no running related pictures right now, or really any photos after my computer died last year. I’ll fix that, I promise.
These are my babies:
And I have a super awesome husband who is nice enough to pretend to be super interested in me telling him about every detail of my runs.
My running story in blurb-ish form:
I played soccer my whole life until an injury ruined my career. I proceeded to do nothing at all and drink and eat pizza for the remainder of college. At almost 23, I decided I was sick of doing nothing and went for a 5 mile run. I did it again the next day, and 5-6 days a week after that. I loved it, which was weird because I HATED running during soccer training. I got pretty fast, and placed in some local races, but I totally trained without any direction and just went out and did what I felt like doing that day. Running became this thing that I loved and that kept me sane and I started fantasizing about getting REALLY good. Then I got injured. I was one day out from competing in a National Championship race when I tore my plantar fasciia (0/10 don’t recommend) and was out for months. I came back, re-trained, and did a marathon. And then tore two ligaments in my knee. I never really came back. I would get motivated to run again, and get discouraged at how slow I was compared to how I used to be. Well, this time it’s different. I miss running and I love it, and I’m going to do everything I can to stay healthy so I never have to stop doing it again. I’m going to get fast again, you just wait and see 🙂 I want to set PRs, I want to win races, and I want championships, no matter how long or how much hard work it takes to get there. I’m not as fast as I used to be yet, but I will be 🙂
