Welcome! I’m Nicole – an accountant on the beautiful Central Coast of California. I have lived here in CA since May 2010 and think it’s one of the prettiest places to live. I am originally from Kansas City, MO. I love Kansas City and enjoy visiting every chance I get. Go Chiefs!!
I am starting this blog to help me keep track of my running progress throughout the year. I want the opportunity to look back and see the things I have accomplished. I want to get and receive pointers and lessons about running and life that others have experienced.
I started running in 8th grade track, ran high school track and cross-country; and although I was never the fastest, I always had a great time. Then during college I used running to try to keep the pounds off. And after graduation it became something I enjoy doing to clear my head when running solo, or when I’m with my friends to catch up and just chat (long runs are always better in a group).
Last year I had the opportunity to run as a Pacer in the Inaugural San Luis Obispo Marathon & Half Marathon for the 2:30 pacing group. It was an amazing experience. I am lucky enough to get to be a pacer again this year and can not wait to help people achieve their goals!
