“Run when you can, walk when you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up.” – Dean Karnazes, Runner

About Dawn - Pink Chick

For several years the only running I did was to run the annual 10k race in the spring. I got my best time when I ran hungover on only a few hours sleep. Finally one year I decided maybe I should really pick up running again on a regular basis and attended a running clinic. After finishing the 10k that year I continued to train and ran my first half marathon. That was in 2002. Later in 2002 I moved to Calgary where my running friends nick-named me Pink Lady, Pinko, Pinky and finally Pink Chick simply because I almost always wore pink when I ran. Truth be known I wear it almost all the time. I ran, well mostly walked, my first marathon in 2003. Since then I've run a ton of shorter 5/10k races, 9 half marathons and I added a second marathon in 2007 when I ran the San Diego RnR Marathon. Today I still run. I'm slow but I'm still out there and lovin' it. Someday I hope to join the Triathlon world.

    This is a great quote! My two favorites are:

    “Pain is temporary but quitting last forever” (Lance Armstrong) “You have a choice. You can throw in the towel or you can use it to wipe the sweat of your face” (Gatorade ad)

    I had a poster from a marathon expo with a great message on it. something about knowing your road because it is your road and it is very demanding. had a picture of someone running on a desert road I think. if anyone know the whole message on the poster please tell or if you have one and maybe want to sell it. thx
