my name is francesca.
i have curly hair and i run.
i am a casual runner, not a competitive runner.
i started running in my early 30s but life happened, so i took a ten year hiatus. i started running again in 2013 and have been running ever since. i owe it all to the best cousin ever (let’s call her liz). she persuaded me to run a 5k race. she was very convincing.
but i don’t just run. i love to bake super pretty pinned treats. i love to plant flowers to help make the world a happier and prettier place. i love road trips, the more off the beaten path the better! oh and i love kayaking remote rivers, minus bears. i am scared of bears.
i decided to start this blog to help me prepare my mind, body and soul for my first marathon. and i would love to read your thoughts and opinions. any questions i will do my best to answer.
by the way, the title of the blog was inspired by a local store owner, “oh! she is that curly haired runner girl that runs around town!” at least i am not that “crazy” curly haired runner girl.
