You are a runner no matter how fast or far you go. It's your race and your happy pace. It's you against you. I'm finding my happy pace in running and life.
Darlena is a Christian, stay-at-home mom of three, military wife and runner. Growing up, she inherited her love of the "sporty" lifestyle from her dad, playing sports from a very young age. Darlena started running as a way to stay healthy and sane during her husband's deployments, although she didn't start any serious distance running until the age of 40. She has now participated in races of various distances including multiple half marathons. She also believes in enjoying life and not taking herself too seriously. Her favorite post race treat? A cupcake, because everyone deserves a little something sweet sometimes!
Darlena wants to share the message that anyone can be a runner "it doesn't matter how fast or how far you go, it's you against you...your race, your pace". She also blogs a weekly Christian-themed post called "Inspiration for Your Perspiration" every Sunday. Darlena believes it's important to live a well-balanced life of faith, eating healthy and exercise. You can follow her at www.runfindyourhappypace.com
