Reason behind your blog name: I’ve been known as “Turtles” since middle school.  Turtles are my favorite animal and when I made my first ‘real’ email address and screen name it started with Turtles.  Fast forward to college and I join a sorority in which our mascot just happened to be a turtle and thus the nickname stuck into my adult life hence Turtle Goes for a Run!

Why you blog: I’ve experienced a lot in my brief life as a runner and I felt that my experiences and knowledge might come in handy for someone else who has decided to take up this wonderful crazy sport. Running is for everyone and I wanted to share that love with others!
