Name/age Michelle C. Amor, 35 and I live in Columbia.

How long running? I started running in May 2008 to train for my first Marathon, which was The Chicago Marathon on 10/12/08!

Running influences I had a pacer for my first marathon, her name is Lida and she lives in London. We began e-mailing through a Facebook marathon page and only met for the first time in Chicago, 2 days before the marathon! She has really inspried me, she just ran 2 marathons in 2 days! Even though she usually paces under 4 hours, she stayed with me the entire way! My goal is to be her pacer when she does an Ultra!

Mileage Pre-marathon approx 30 mies per week however I'd like it more around 40-45 per week.

Fave place to run MKT trail!

Running accomplishments Finished my first marathon!

Goals I registered for the St. Louis marathon (April 09) not even 2 days after I finished Chicago! So far in 2009 I have St. Louis, possibly Flying Pig Marathon in Cincinnati in May, the NEW Chicago Rock N' Roll Half in August, Heart of America in Sept. Kansas City half in Oct. and I will also be running for the same charity at the 2009 Chicago Marathon also in Oct. And I would really love to do Philly in Nov!

Personal info I work as a Certified Professional Coder for a billing service in Jeff City. In 2009 I will be serving as the President Elect for the local Jeff City chapter of the American Academy of Professional Coders.

This year I ran Chicago for the Network Of Strength Breast Cancer Foundation's Pink Streak Team. I am planning on running with the 2009 Pink Streak team and will be having fundraisers throughout the year.
