My name is Liz Anjos and I’m a musician and distance runner from Portland, Oregon. I currently divide my time between writing/recording music as Pink Feathers, touring with RAC, coaching runners, and running the day-to-day for the nonprofit and Portland-based running team, Rose City Track Club. I’m also part of the Tracksmith Hare A.C. and represent Honey Stinger as a HIVE ELITE athlete.
Growing up, I preferred singing/music/dancing to any kind of sport, 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 school cross country and track teams for fun. Over time a little question kept tugging at me. “What if?” I decided to start training to see how fast and how far I could go. Since then I’ve been chasing personal records and 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.
