About

Thank you for visiting my site.  I’m Rachel and I decided to start this blog to document my journey as an ultra runner.  What started in high school as a love for track and field, has continued to carry into the love for running ever since.  Over the past 15 years, I’ve completed 3 ultra marathons along with 7 marathons and countless half marathons.  Next to running ultra marathons, one of my biggest accomplishments as a runner was qualifying and running in the Boston marathon.  I ran in Boston in April of 2010.  My love of running continues with each day, and even though there are some struggles and challenges that go along with it, I couldn’t imagine my life without it.  I hope you enjoy this journey with me, to see what other dreams and accomplishments come my way.

  1. Hi Rachel,

    Congratulations on all your running accomplishments. Boston must’ve been an amazing feeling. I’m getting goosebumps just typing this. Alas, my best bet at Boston is to try valiantly to hold on to my current speed as I age and hopefully the coordinates will align for me one day.

    Good luck on your way to your 50 mile ultra!!!

    1. Hi Rod, thanks for the comment! I am a firm believer in the saying, ” You can do anything you set your mind to.” If you work hard enough for it, you’ll get there for sure! Good luck to you in your running! Keeping working for Boston, you can do it! 🙂
