Just another single 30-year old Argentine girl living the American dream in Washington DC and trying to run faster. Graduated from Southern Utah University in 2003, then moved to DC. I have a full-time job as research economist for an association in the transportation industry and I'm attempting to get my Master's degree in Economics from Johns Hopkins, part-time, while keeping my sanity!

Woke up at 6:40 on my own, after my alarm clock failed! I thought I'd be late, so I biked as fast as I possibly could to the Lincoln Memorial to meet up with Ashley, who ran 10 miles to the Army Ten Miler start line to do the race, as part of a 20 mile run before MCM. I made it there before her, and biked by her side, to make sure she made it. Then biked home; about 10 miles total.

Later, I biked from home to Mt. Vernon and back. That's about 40 long and hard miles. I was going super FAST, passing EVERYONE on the way. I like passing the hard-core bikers on their road bikes with my clumsy hybrid. It was cool, but I'm really pooped.

It was so fun and exciting reading everyone's race reports from St. George and Twin Cities! I am so happy for everyone who did so well in such difficult conditions! We have such amazing runners on this blog!
