Hi. My name's Selica but people tend to pronounce it incorrectly so it's cool if you call me Ess (like the letter), Sel, or Selly.

Just don't call me Leeks. I hate that.

In 2012 I fell in like with running. It's gotten pretty serious and in April '13 I ran my first marathon.

Now I love to run.

Hello, it’s been a while.

I guess you could say I’ve outgrown this space.

When I started runetc I was obsessed with running and weight loss and healthy living. I dreamed of running a marathon and could never imagine that a year later I would do so.

I’m still about running, healthy eats, and all that jazz, but I no longer need a dash full of motivational quotes and pictures of salads to inspire me.

Thanks a million for following and answering my annoying questions and supporting me along the way.

Seriously love you to bits.

(I’ve started a new tumblr so don’t be surprised if you see my face liking all your posts. Some things change but more stay the same…xx)

Hey linna-pee you’re right… $128 is more than I’d pay for a local 1/2 marathon.

But registration for SeaWheeze comes with:

  • Entrance to the Sunset Festival 
  • Free yoga classes
  • SeaWheeze exclusive shorts 
  • Post race brunch

It looks like one big fitblr party. I think it’ll be well worth it. It sold out in an hour so hopefully Lululemon knows what they’re doing.

Plus The Nike Women’s Half is $175(?) and the Disneyland Half Marathon is $195 so it’s not like it’s the priciest event out there.  

Anyways it should be a fun. I’m just happy I was able to get in :)

Too pumped.

Been stressed all week I wouldn’t get a spot.

Now crossing fingers everyone else gets in.

La Boulange finally made it to my Starbucks.

All i want to do is crawl into bed but instead I’m going to go to my training group track workout. 

Whatevs.

I bought a pair of Nike LunarEclipse+ on New Year’s Eve.

I really wanted to love them. Like really really. 

But no. They are definitely not for me. They make running more than a mile feel like hell.

This is what I get for picking them for shallow reasons.

My half a marathon is in 7 weeks. So unfit and unprepared. This is truly a disaster.

Someone tell me I have time to pull it together.

I’ll be running all weekend to make up for this weeks laziness. If we’re friends on Nike+ feel free to send hate mail if I don’t do it.

Random thoughts are random. Let’s all cross fingers this day goes by quickly and we can all go home.

Now I get why people obsess over RunDisney races.

Definitely my slowest 10k ever (stopped at all the characters and a bunch of places to take pictures) but also one of the most fun.

10 out of 10 would recommend.

Just geek’d out over Jeff Galloway.
