Hi everyone! I've been reading the site for awhile, but finally decided to take the plunge and join the forums. DailyMile interactions just weren't cutting it for me, and the community here seems great! I'm 6'0", approx. 165 lbs. I started running about a year and a half ago (minimalist running, currently using Vibram FiveFingers), and have done a 10K, a few half marathons, a 7 mile GutCheck Fitness trail race, and the LA Marathon. I really enjoy running, but have recently added in some weight training because I know that it's awesome for me, and it makes my running feel 100x better than when I'm not weight training. Current Training Running approx. 4 x per week (although I'm participating in the Runner's World Summer Streak, so I'm doing at least a mile every day until July 4!) Weight training 2 x per week (Using the Female Body Breakthrough program by Rachel Cosgrove...although I do it a little more Crossfit style) Goals Griffith Park Trail Half Marathon - under 2:30 (November 17) Run a marathon under 5 hours Run a 5K under 25 minutes Be able to do 50 pushups at a pop I'm excited to be in a place where I can cheer other people on and nerd out about fitness! I'm a librarian by trade, so research is my game...and I love researching fitness and health!
