Just another newbie excited to be here...
I started running my last year of graduate school. More than five years later, I can't stop. I just became a mommy in March and am excited to get that boy in the jogging stroller, but am slightly afraid of running alone in my DC suburb. So for now, the treadmill will have to do. (Although, I admit that running while watching Project Runway is one of my favorite things to do.)
I haven't run a marathon, but I've done a couple of halfs (LOVE the Provo River half!), a few ten-milers, handful of 10Ks, some 8Ks (my fave), and a slew of 5Ks. I am currently training to run the Ragnar Relay here in DC (http://www.ragnarrelay.com/dc/index.php) and am scared to death. But hopefully that t-shirt will look great in my race shirt quilt...making it all worth it, of course.
Favorite race distance: 8K
Favorite song to run to: ??? Honestly, no idea why this is so hard, but it is.
Favorite dessert: McDonald's ice cream cone or, when in Utah, Maverik cones
Current goal: Simply finish the Ragnar DC Relay (September 26-27--eek!)

If anyone has any tips they'd like to share about running the relay, I'd love to hear them. While I feel confident in my training, it's the logistics of it that scare me to death.
But most of all, thanks for letting me be a part of this site. I love reading about the fun and amazing things you all are doing!
