I am an INFJ with a deep love of reading, traveling, soccer, driving with the windows down, and anything salted caramel. I have a slight phobia of knee injuries (it’s gotten better over time), I edit my text messages before sending them, and I am a sentimental freak- if you’ve ever given me a card, I probably still have it. I would never, ever use the words “athlete” or “runner” to describe myself, yet I am committed to start training for the Chicago Marathon in October 2012. Follow along as the girl who dreaded the mile run in gym class prepares for a big 26.2 mile race!
