Hello! Welcome to the brand new aabrauny.com! Thank you for taking the time to read this, and check out my new website. Let me start by explaining why I’ve built this site. I know that I’m not the biggest distance running star out there, and I’ve never really been one to try to get in the spotlight, but there’s been a few things that have made me shift the way I think about some of that.
The first is that I want to become a bigger star in the distance running world. Now, I am not one of those people who are going to try to become a bigger star simply by trying to get more attention. No, I mean become a bigger star the way people should become bigger stars: running fast and winning races. Obviously starting this new site doesn’t help propel me to either of those goals. But trust me, none of the work on this site will take away from the work I’m always doing in pursuit of those goals. This is simply a way for me to help share my story on who I am, what I’m doing, what I believe in, etc. I am also a fan of this amazing sport, and have found myself really enjoying reading about other athletes I compete against: their races, their strategies, their training, what they do away from running, etc. The combination of getting into that, and some of the things that have been happening with our sport (e.g., CGI’s decision to cut elite athlete funding) has had me thinking what can I do besides that whole running part!
Well I hope the answer to that question is this website. Here is where you can really get to know me (besides talking to me if we ever bump into each other!) There is everything from an introduction to me, my family and my running background, to blogs and interviews from over the years, to details about my recent training, to race results and upcoming races, to pictures, to contacting me to talk to running groups and so much more.
My first priority in my running career will always be the running. But while I’m exhausted after workouts, focusing on the recovering aspect of training, why not spend a little time in front of this computer to share some of my story with you?
