"Running Works!"
“So I can eat gravy” was my stock response two and a half years ago when first asked what motivated me to start running. I’d done the rounds with diets and didn’t believe I would ever find one that I would stick to for more then a few days at a time. I decided that exercise was the answer and I thought that if I ran I wouldn’t have to worry so much about what I ate. I do love to eat. Months passed and the running became easier, I even trained for and finished my first marathon, but still my weight never did change substantially and to add salt to that wound I found that my pace had slowed as well. But, the marathon was an experience that changed the way I had been looking at running. Within minutes of dragging my ass across that finish-line I was already thinking about what I could have, and should have, done differently and better. I decided immediately that I would be running another marathon but that I would do the next one right. This meant that I would have to take the steps to lose the extra weight and if it included giving up gravy then so be it. I’m twenty pounds lighter now and getting close to my self-imposed “maximum weight to start marathon training” goal and I’m feeling optimistic that this will be the year of my second marathon. I don’t often get asked why I run any more but when asked what has motivated me to loose weight, the answer is “So I can run.” Running works".

Beginning Runners Group
About two years ago, I bought my first pair of running shoes at the Eugene Running Store and was elated by the staff’s enthusiasm and wanted to learn about their beginning runner's groups. As running coaches and mentors, I can't thank Liisa and Anna enough for their unbridled positive energy, great coaching skills, support, and dedication in inspiring a beginning runner like myself. Another wonderful element that inspires me is the camaraderie of the running group that grows over time. So far I have run two Eugene Marathon 5k's and two Truffle Trots and will be training to finally run my first Butte to Butte. A humble beginning but a journey I am thankful I started.
