Welcome to our newest teammate, Kylie! Kylie says, “What excites me the most about being a part of the RUNColumbus Race Series is that I will push myself outside of my comfort zone a little bit more and progressively improve by 1% daily. I want to not only finish races strong like I did last year but am looking for ways of challenging myself to go further distances and get faster while also ensuring that I am checking in with myself to make sure I am capable of doing it safely.” She continues, “After completing 8 5K’s last year, I know that my main goal is getting appropriately trained, so I don’t tire out as quickly and prevent further injuries from happening. My goals for this year are getting to know this group better, pushing myself outside of my comfort zone a little more, and trying to complete the basic requirements, even though most of the races will probably be done virtually because of health and travel issues.
