MEMBER OF THE MONTH – JANUARY 2019
How did you hear about Pacifica Runners?
From board member and dear friend Fran Hardcastle
How long have you been a runner?
How did you get into running?
I started by being team captain for Chase Corporate Challenge. 3.5 mile was a nice distance and I enjoyed the team work. Then, I decided to challenge myself to a 10K, then a Half, and then in 2010, ran my first marathon in NYC. Now, I can't imagine a world without running.
Do you have a favorite race(s)?
Yes, NYC marathon. It was my first marathon and I truly enjoy the 5 boroughs experience of NYC. There is energy from the city like no other.
What are your favorite running trails/routes?
My practice run route is from SOMA to Embarcadero to AT&T Ball Park and back. Perfect 10K for a daily run.
What are your future running goals?
I want to finish the 6 world majors!!! I have completed NYC, Chicago, and Boston. I am running Tokyo and Berlin in 2019 and hope to run London in 2020!
What do you enjoy most about Pacifica Runners?
Pacific Runners embody a true sense of community. I am so impressed by a number of diverse activities the group put together. I have participated in 3 races and most recently the relay race in December. It was so well organized and most importantly FUN!!! I also appreciate the weekly clinics to help runners train up. I think PR board rocks!!!
Any other cool info about yourself?
I believe running helps empower me. that is why I also serve as Vice Chair of the Girls on the Run Bay Area where we seek to advocate for healthy and confident girls. When I am not running, I am on the tennis court, playing tennis.
