I love running because it’s my time to meditate.  It is a constant challenge for the body and the mind. I’ve learned over the past 20+ years of running that a positive mind set is vital to keep pushing you. I also love watching my team push and dig deep to meet their own goals, achieve PR’s and new distances, and have a great time staying active. I’m extremely proud of Team OFA!

Lou Ambrose
I started running in 1977 when I was 18. I’ve loved running since I was a small child. When I decided to challenge myself by running longer distances I got hooked and have been a runner for almost 40 years.

PR’s:

Chau Chan
I ran my first 10k in November 2012 at the Run to Feed the Hungry event.  My first half marathon was in March 2014 at the Shamrock. I have not ran a full marathon.  Last year, I was a part of a relay team at the CIM.  I ran the second leg with 7.6 miles.

In 2004, I was struggling to lose the weight that I have unintentionally gained throughout my four years of college.  The summer before I started grad school, I picked up running.  At first, I could only run continuously for 3 minutes. Gradually, I was able to increase my time and my distance.  I started running on a regular basis and adopted a new hobby of running 5k races.  After the birth of my second child in 2011, I was again struggling to lose the weight I have gained from two pregnancies.  In 2012, I ran my first 10k.  Eight months after the birth of my third child, I ran my first half marathon in 2014.  Seven months later, I ran my second half marathon.  I have always been a very busy person.  School, work and being a mom of three kids (5 years old, 3 years old, and 19 months), I needed an escape – a “me” time.  Running offers me a brief release from my busy life and allow me to relax my mind.  I guess you can say that I literally “ran” away from the businesses and stress in my life.

Peter Chang
I have been running off and on for years but did not really start racing until 2011

Running is my outlet for competition while also getting exercise, enjoying the outdoors, and meeting new people!  I enjoy the technical details of racing and trying to get the most out of myself physically and mentally.  I love talking to other runners about nutrition strategy, pacing strategy, or any other nerdy nuances to racing that could possibly give you an edge in competition.

2017 has been a successful year.  After a fantastic training season, I had a disappointing first Boston Marathon.  I learned so much from my experience and I am confident I will be back (maybe when I get into the next age group!).  The second half of the year has been about shorter distances, speed work, and lots of racing!

I am looking forward to 2018 as I continue my quest to be a 6 Star Abbot World Marathon Major finisher!  I have completed Chicago (2016) and Boston (2017) but I still have New York, Berlin, Tokyo, and London to go! Follow me on Strava under the Team OFA Club Page.

 

Doralynn Co and Scott Lish

Doralynn started running because she was asked to run the CIM relay with co-workers in 2001. She has been an avid runner ever since.

PR’s:
Half Marathon – 1:45:19 Silver Strand 2014
Marathon – 4:06 San Diego Rock’n’Roll 2016

Running keeps me in shape, let’s my mind wander, gives me fun down time with Scott, and shows my daughters how exercise can easily be a part of everyday life.

Scott has always played sports but started distance running on a regular basis in 2006 when he met Doralynn. Running keeps him in shape and has proven to be a gateway to other physical activities that has pushed him to achieve many fitness goals.

Running is an opportunity to spend time with my wife.  It is my escape from work and chance to unwind.

Ederlina Co
I first began running in 2001.

PR’s:
10K – 1:03:16 Run to Feed the Hungry 2014

Running keeps me in healthy shape, keeps my stress in check, and gives me additional quiet time during my otherwise busy life.

 

Lourdes Conrad
I began my journey towards running in 2011 for health reasons.  Not able to maintain a fast pace, I started walking on the treadmill 20 minutes a day, gradually building up my speed, raising the incline up to as high as 7.  Having developed a passion for running, I was eventually running 1.5 to 2 hours a day 5-7 days a week. Running has helped me become healthier and more physically fit. Never having played sports when I was younger, running has given me a great feeling of accomplishment.

My first official race was the Run To Feed The Hungry 10K in November 2012.

Chris Costi
I began running in 2007. I ran my first 13.5 miles in 2007 when a friend asked me to run with her and although she was faster than me and I ended up running by myself, I enjoyed it and promised myself I would train harder to prepare for the next one.   When I was asked why I love to run, it made me think about why i do and here is what i love about running:

PR’s:
Half  Marathon –2:14 Running of the Elk 2016
Full Marathon – 5:16:57 CIM 2016

I run because I feel lost without it. I run because I love the excitement of racing. I run because I feel like I can conquer the world after a good workout. I run to fill a void that nothing else can possibly fill. I run because when I do, the world around me becomes quiet. I run in hopes of inspiring others, because if I can do it so can you! I run because I love it.

Todd Dooley
I began running for wrestling in high school, 1989.  Running competitively for triathlon: 2004, Running competitively: 2009.

I love running for the community, camaraderie, making new friends and building relationships. Not only do I enjoy running my own race, but I really enjoy volunteering my time to give back to the running community. Aide stations are a great place for me to help runners in need as well as cheering on the runners I know in the race.

”If you’ve been working out regularly, you’ve already discovered it: No matter how good or bad you feel at any given moment, exercise will make you feel better. And it goes beyond just the “runner’s high”—that rush of feel-good hormones known as endocannabinoids. In a study published in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, researchers found that even a single bout of exercise—30 minutes of walking on a treadmill—could instantly lift the mood of someone suffering from a major depressive order.“

Dennis Folk
I was originally inspired to take up this sport after watching my brother (and several thousand other runners) participate in the 2009 California International Marathon.  I usually do 3 marathons per year now and I enjoy traveling to other cities to run their events.  I have been running for 7 years and train year around. My ultimate goal is to qualify for and then run the Boston Marathon.

Carina Kool
I started running in 8th grade for Track.  I really enjoyed running for myself and being a part of a team.  When I started high school, I joined the Cross Country team and loved it a lot more than the track, but still participated in indoor & outdoor track as well.  I loved running the difference courses, terrain, and seeing the different scenery while running Cross Country.  After high school (graduated in 1997), I ran off & on throughout the years, but really got back into it back in 2012 and started pushing myself to run longer that year and going forward.  I run for carbs as I love pasta and especially pizza.  I run because I love peanut butter frozen yogurt.  I run because it is a great stress reliever and to improve my health.  I continue to run to challenge myself and to inspire others.  I run for those that aren’t able to.

It’s a way to release emotion; whether it be good or bad. There’s just a sense of feeling free when I’m on the road. I can dread getting up in the morning to motivate myself out the door, but when I’m out there I really feel like I’m flying. There’s no better feeling I know no matter how short or long a run is. I also enjoy the challenge of seeing how far I can push myself mentally and physically. I also run for those who can’t; whether it’s by their choice or because they physically can’t. I run for those who don’t have the ability to.

I started running in 2011 because I needed to do something active to help alleviate my back pain from carrying my then 3 year old daughter. I don’t think you’ll ever hear me say that I love running, but I’ve come to realize that when I’m hurt or sick and can’t run, I do miss it. I’ve done one marathon, a handful of half marathons, but my favorite distance is the 10K. I still want to try for a sub 2 hour half, but after that, I’m gonna stick to 10K’s.  I do like that running lets me be competitive with myself. I’m always trying for a PR when I do a race.

I love to run because it is a good way to relax  my mind. Most of the runs raise money for a good cause. Running is good for the mind, body and soul and helps me to stay fit while attempting to help raise money for charity.  I love to run because I can run and motivate others to run.

Suman started running in 2008. Till then I was never into running. I could never run even a short distance. Even as a kid, I was never into any sport. In 2008, I was taking boot camp fitness class at Folsom Lake College and there one day I had to run a mile and for me it was like running a marathon. Then I took this as a challenge and joined a training group and did my first half marathon under 3 months. From then on I have been running, though I am not a very fast paced runner.

Neli Palma
I started running distances in 2009, when I ran the San Francisco Half Marathon, and I have been hooked since.  This year, I ran five half marathons and two full marathons, plus some 5ks and 10ks with my daughter to introduce her to the sport.  To keep things interesting, this year included races in Santa Rosa, Utah (Zion Half) and Tahoe (Rock Tahoe).  I am looking forward to 2018.  I am signed up for three races thus far (Shamrock’n Half, Yosemite Half, and Rock Tahoe), and I am scoping out additional races.  A 50k suddenly sounds interesting.

Running is one of the few things I do only for myself.  It is my time to ease into the day, or my happy hour after work.  Everything comes into clear focus during my runs.  I also love running with friends on weekends and at races.  This year, I added training with friends early before work to get longer marathon training runs in mid-week.  The miles fly by, and we encourage each other to meet our respective goals.  Training for races is also a great life regulator.  Your dedication and goals remind you to get to bed on time, to eat healthy, etc.

2015.  My soccer career ended due to multiple concussions in a short time.  After a couple years of not really doing a sport, decided I needed something again.  I had seen people with cool half marathon shirts and always thought, I could do that, I am going to do that.  Signed up and trained for Shamrockn as my first half and fell in love with it.

Running gives me something athletIc and competitive to do, even just being competitive with myself.  I am definitely more of a sprint/speed person from soccer and track, but learning to pace and fuel properly has given me a good challenge to work with.  Plus I love finding new races to do or making a weekend get away happen around a race.

My goals include 30 halfs by the time I’m 30 and to one day run and compete the Big Sur Marathon.

I met some amazing people and have established the best friendships with fellow runners. Running has become my sanity, my therapy, my mommy time, and my fun time with friends.

I first began running in 2009. At the time I could barely run half-way around the block.  It became my personal goal to change that! 

PR’s:
10K – 58:08 Super Sunday/Super Bowl 2015
Half Marathon – 2:12:34 Urban Cow 2010
Full Marathon – 5:35:11 CIM 2012

Running keeps me in shape and relieves stress. I love the enthusiasm, adrenaline, and camaraderie you feel among fellow racers on race morning.  And I love receiving the medals (“the bling”) from all the different and fun races.
