My name is Raciel (rachel) and I'm a fur mother to a 1-year-old Weimaraner named Sterling. (Yes, I turned into one of those ladies that calls themselves a "furmum" #dontjudge).

Since 2005, I'm a "back-of the-packer" that has completed over 33 marathons, 14 ultramarathons (50K+), a 100 miler (it was a cute buckle!), several Sprint & Olympic-distance triathlons, 3 half-Ironman distance (70.3) triathlons, and a century ride.

Why do these numbers matter? Because except for a handful (4) of podiums, I'm never in the top 80% of finishers. So why do I keep signing up for these events? Insanity. I'm insanely into endurance events and am insanely inspired daily by people of all shapes and sizes who complete said endurance events.
