My name is Aly and among many other things, I am a runner. I’ve been a runner since the age of about five, when I was forced to ride my bike alongside my mom on her morning jogs. The physical act of running started a couple years later in my elementary school’s jog-a-thon. I was determined to whoop all the boys in my class. I don’t remember if I did, but for simplicity, we’ll say yes, yes I did whoop them. And now, twenty-something years later, I find myself writing a blog about being a runner. Thanks Mom.
Anyways, although I try to be a multidimensional young woman, I don’t want to bore you with all aspects of my life and will keep this page primarily on running. If you’re wondering why I think I’m qualified or interesting enough to be writing about my running on a public site? Well, I’m probably not. But on a scale from 1-10, 1 being a baby that can’t even hold up the weight of it’s head, and 10 being Usain Bolt, I would say I’m probably past the midline mark of 5. Somewhere in that ballpark. I run a lot, I’ve been doing it for a while, and I’m still learning as I go.
I run for a competitive club in Boston, (Greater Boston Track Club). I train with amazing people that are super fast. My friends and I make plans around running and visa versa. I try not to make running to0 big of a deal in my life, but it’s inescapable. Like food, water, sleep, and companions, running is a necessity in my life.
P.S. You will find grammatical errors when you read my posts. It’s part of my charm.
