TRACY WRIGHT

Hometown: Irvine, CA

Background: I Ran cross country and track in high school and in college. SDSU 1989-1991: 800, 1500m

Racing Competitively Since: 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 junior college cross country and track the last 10 years.  

PRs:

1500 m: 4:32 (1989)

3200 m: 10:48 (1985)

5K: 17:32 (2006)

8K: 28:51 (2006)

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

 

The Fun Questions:

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 I 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.
