About Me

My photo

Hi, I'm Whitney! I am a middle of the pack runner who discovered the fun of triathlons in 2009. Join me in my adventures in life and training. I run with the Rush Running team and enjoy the fun that comes with such a supportive group of friends who understand what running means to me. I'm newly discovering road biking and the fun that it entails.

My Month as a Runnerd

Candice at I Have Run hosted a photo challenge for the month of September called the RunnerdPhotoaDay challenge.  I have never participated in a photo challenge before so I wasn't sure if I would stay interested in the project for a full month.  I got started though and managed to stay on track for all but two days.  I still posted photos for those days just posted a day late instead of on time.  Here's my photo summary for the month... I did have to use some pictures that were from earlier in the summer but some were real time to the task.  Sadly I did manage to use one photo twice but in my defense I really loved the pics in it!!!

Take a look at what I was up to in September.  And remember you can follow me on Twitter @runningwhit
