My name is Liz Anjos and I’m a musician and distance runner from Portland, Oregon. I currently divide my time between writing music as Pink Feathers, touring with RAC on keys/vocals, coaching runners, and managing a running club I helped create called Rose City Track Club.
Throwback to eighth grade – I was one of the most nonathletic kids in my P.E. class, but discovered in a mile time trial that I had a knack for running. From then through the end of college I ran on my schools’ cross country and track teams for fun. Over time a little question kept tugging at me. “What if?” I decided to start training, like really training to see how fast and how far I could go. Since then I’ve been chasing personal records and a farfetched dream of qualifying for the US Olympic Trials. The thing is, each year that dream becomes more and more within reach and I don’t feel so ridiculous for wanting it after all. This blog chronicles that journey and I welcome you to follow along.
