Welcome to Fastanista! Yes, it is primarily a tongue-in-cheek name, but admit it... most of us have fun dressing up for a run or especially - a race. It's just fun! Plus, there's just something about the swish of a running skirt against my legs as I make the turn into a finishing chute that makes me run faster. :)
So... what will
this blog include? I'm excited to share my running experiences with you
- training, race recaps, trends, product reviews, etc.
grew up on the east coast (Long Island, NY) but moved to the Pacific NW
for graduate school and have been out here since 2010. I live on the
side of a mountain in Washington (the state) just across the river from
I'm slightly over 40.
I'm a Teacher of the Deaf and work with children birth-to-age-three and their families.
crafty and enjoy working on projects - sewing, scrapbooking, mosaics,
jewelry, etc - as well as baking - recently I've learned how to make
cheese and took a series of cake decorating classes.
I'm always open to learning something new (see above!).
I'm a bit of a shopaholic.
I'm a list-maker and a planner, but I also like to be flexible.
I like to smile. A lot. :D
