Hello, my name is Noelle De Guzman, and I am the KIKAYRUNNER.
OK, wait. What does that mean, exactly? Well, for me it means being a female recreational runner who, aside from being interested in all that sports science has to offer when it comes to helping me run faster, also likes looking good while doing so. *wink*
The story behind this: I got into running in July 2009, and pretty soon my friends and I were joining races and I was buying new gear. I’ve been blogging since 2001 and I’ve always been in the habit of writing about things I’ve done or discovered, so my personal blog In My Pocket was soon overrun by running-related posts.
This year, my friend Joel proposed that we work towards doing a marathon by the end of the year. Now I, being the reckless KIKAYRUNNER I am, decided to take the plunge and thought keeping a running-specific blog would help keep me motivated. I also acquired a Garmin Forerunner 305 and called him Kiko.
I aim to run my first marathon on July 4, which is the Milo national eliminations — and also my birthday. I’m excited, but also scared. One thing’s for sure: I want to look damn good while doing this. Ü
