Tracy Wright

Hometown: Irvine, CA

Background: I Ran cross country and track in high school and in college. SDSU 1989-1991: 800, 1500m I started racing competitively in 1984 (Yes I am old)!. After college I had a string of injuries and took a 5 year break.  I have stayed pretty competitive over the last 10 years and now race as a master, but it definitely gets harder to keep the body healthy as you age!.  I also have coached high school and Jr college cross country and track the last 10 years.  

PRs:

1500m 4:32 (1989)

3200 10:48 (1985)

5K - 17:32 (2006)

8K 28:51 (2006)

 

Half Marathon: 1:27:17 (2011, Disneyland Half)

Favorite races:  I like doing mile races on the track or the road. Encinitas mile, Summer track series.

Favorite workout: Quarter mile repeats.

Words to live by: Don't sweat the small stuff..life is way too short.

Why you choose to run for PRT: I am excited to join the first masters team. These young gals will keep me going strong!

What I like to do besides running: Swim, ski, hang out with my two daughters, and travel.
