Hi everyone! My name is Rachel and I am a college student living outside of Boston. I am currently going to school to become a Veterinary Technologist while working at an emergency veterinary clinic. I have loved animals since the day I was born and knew someday I would work with them!
I am also a lover of tattoos and currently have 6. I am not stopping anytime soon, and I love using my tattoos to display who I am. My tattoos mean a lot to me an represent everything I love in life.
Finally, the main reason for this blog, is that I LOVE running!!! I started getting serious about my running in May of 2014 when I got into the lottery for the Falmouth Road Race. I enjoyed training and running this race so much, that I registered for my first half marathon. Since these 2 races, I have completed 6 half marathon, 4 10ks, 3 5ks, a 5 miler, and a 10 miler. I have placed in my age group in many of these races, and I have so much fun competing. I am currently training for my first full marathon in October, and I cannot wait to accomplish this goal! This blog will keep you up to date on my training, nutrition, random daily activities, and racing! I hope you follow along and enjoy!
