I’m Liz Anjos, a musician and distance runner from Portland, Oregon. I write and record music under the moniker Pink Feathers, have toured around the world playing keys and singing with the indie pop act RAC, and cofounded the Portland-based nonprofit Rose City Track Club.
I began running cross country in high school, just for fun. I did not display any kind of special talent, but found that just a little bit of consistency and persistence could go a long way. I began running competitively when I joined the cross country and track teams my senior year at Greenville College, after running on my own the first three years. I ventured into racing the half marathon and marathon, now with a lofty goal of qualifying for the US Olympic Trials.
I’ve had the privilege of running in all kinds of amazing places around the world thanks to my experience as a touring musician. I’ve also gone through the many ups and downs of training–heartbreak, injuries, and all. Writing is my #1 way to process and my favorite way to share, hence this blog was formed. Most of my entries here are sporadic and long form; the best way to keep up is by following me on Instagram.
