My Super Sweet 13(.1)

A 1st Half Marathon


“30WhiteLlamas” is the moniker of the author of the travel blog/essay site 30 White Llamas, which chronicled the before, during, and after of my four-day trek on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu for my 30th birthday. My Peru trek inspired me to be more physically active, and thus I decided to write this blog, a week-by-week look at my first half (or mini) marathon training and experience.

I have run five races prior to starting this blog (December 2011), and am looking to push myself into new physical directions as I enter my 31st year. Health and fitness goals, as well as smoking cessation aims, are motivating me to run the Kentucky Derby Mini Marathon on April 28, 2012; you’re welcome to join me or cheer me on. If you need to contact me, send an email to

Other than “runner,” I am also a doctoral student and associate faculty member at a local college, as well as a yogi, writer, swimmer, tutor, globe-trotter, and dog & cat mother.
