How did you hear about Pacifica Runners?

I think I found out about Pacifica Runners when searching for local races.  I'm actually not sure...

How long have you been a runner?

25 years

How did you get into running?

I ran track and cross country in high school.  Now I run to keep my sanity.  :)

Do you have a favorite race(s)?

I've actually only run a handful of in person runs.  Since COVID, I've a ton of virtual races, so that doesn't really count.  I look forward to in person runs!

What are your favorite running trails/routes?

I love running to explore new places.  But, I do really love running in Golden Gate park.  

What are your future running goals?

Continue running 100+ miles a month and sign up for some in person races once they come around again.  I would love to run an in person half, I've only done a virtual one.  

What do you most enjoy about Pacifica Runners?

I love being part of a running community!  I look forward to meeting you all in the future.  

Any other cool info about yourself?


I'm not sure what qualifies as cool...

So, how about 3 random, fun facts.  :)

I grew up between California and Portugal (where my family is from and my dad still lives).  I always thought that was pretty cool.  

I also have opened 3 businesses in San Francisco (2 cafes and 1 record shop).

I broke my leg (stress fracture) in high school cross country at tri-districts, so I had to sign up for golf the next semester because I couldn't run in track.  I sucked at golf!
