A blog about Trace and her races.

ABOUT MY RUNNING:
I am a woman in love with running, testing personal boundaries, doing my best to inspire others to enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle while setting goals and working hard to achieve them.  Training for several different distance events (marathon, 50K, 50M and 100-milers), I am currently coached by Andy Noise, having previously raced for Cerritos College under John Goldman in 2012 and Sylvia Mosqueda in 2011.

WHY DO I RUN?
I find it difficult to respond when someone questions my “sanity” because I thoroughly enjoy running. I can’t explain to you exactly why I am a runner, I just am. And best things that have ever come into life are because of it. As a child, it saved me. As an adult it keeps that spark inside me that reminds me that hard work and that persistence will one day get me to that finish line, whichever finish line it may be.

Although I am a fierce competitor who loves racing the boys, I take pride in every single performance regardless place or time because I have learned that earning a medal or a buckle is meaningless without the experience: Sacrifices, dedication, friends, both new and old that mutually support each other through companionship, camaraderie, words of encouragement, high-fives, hugs, and a hope that at least one person has been inspired.
