Name: SkinnyRunner
Age: The Dirty Thirty as of two months ago
City: Orange County, CA, home of the Real Housewives of OC and maybe some other important stuff, but I don’t know.

How long have you been running?

I’ve always played sports (this is what happens when you grow up on an island in Alaska with two brothers and everyone calls you “Sam”… you basically become a boy.), but I really got into running in the fall of 2008 on a whim when a friend asked me to run a half marathon with her. I ran my first marathon in December 2009 in Las Vegas and have pulled a Forrest Gump and just kept going since then.

What inspired you to start running?

A friend asked me to join her in the Nike Womens Half Marathon race in San Francisco. I didn’t want to look bad in front of her (we weren’t that close of friends at the time, we were sorta in the courting phase so it was break or break for me) so I ran it, had an awesome time and fell head over heels in love with Ryan Gosling, I mean, running.

What are you favorite shoes to run in?

Since getting professionally fitted for running shoes (please everyone go do this. Don’t just a shoe based on “cuteness” although thinking about it, this is something I would totally do) I’ve only worn Mizuno Wave Riders. I’m like a hoarder and stock up on pairs and colors whenever I find a deal.

What race is on your bucket list?

I’d love to run a big international race like London or Berlin. Unfortunately my private G5 just ran out of gas so it probably won’t happen for awhile.

How do you share your passion for running with others?

Mainly through blogging. And talking. I talk a lot.
Through blogging I’ve met some great running friends and we’ve traveled together, raced together and it’s been awesome to share that passion and feed off each other.

What’s your biggest achievement?

Running-wise, I guess I’m still really proud of the first year that I ran 12 marathons in 12 months, 10 of those were BQs. Although I’ve done that twice now and last year ran more than 12, I remember being distinctly proud when it first happened.

But running is not my life and on the scale of truly important things, it doesn’t even weigh in.

Has running helped you overcome an obstacle in your life? If yes, what?

I don’t think it’s helped me overcome any obstacles, but it has helped me to foster a passion in me, it’s reinforced healthy habits and discipline into my daily routine, and it’s also given me more self-confidence: I like running and how it makes me feel, and I’ve discovered that I’m relatively good/not terrible at it. Who woulda thunk?

If you could run with anyone, who would it be and why?

Now is the time I should share my celebrity love and say someone like John Lennon, but honestly, I loved running with my little brother (ran a marathon together and almost died! slightly dramatic) and with my sister-in-law M in Hawaii so any of my family or my husband. If he would run with me, I’D LOVE IT. and laugh at him the whole time because I’m nice like that.

How will you Claim Your Journey in 2013?

I’m going to (at least work on) owning my own hard work and accomplishments and letting go of the guilt (not hitting a PR, not running hard enough, etc). It’s just running: I need to always treat it like a gift, not life or death.
