Run It Fast – The Club Profile Alicia Eno #126

RIF #126 Alicia Eno

This week’s RIF Club Profile is #126 Alicia Eno. Alicia is another one of our speedy club members and she has been running since she was 1! She must love running, right? Read on to find out more about Alicia and her running:


Name: Alicia Marie Eno
RIF #: 126
Twitter: @karhu262girl
Facebook: Alicia Marie Eno Juhl


Years Running: Started at age 1
Favorite Race Distance: Marathon
Favorite PR: Past weekend at Duke City Marathon, first 13.1 at 1:34 of the marathon
Favorite Race: So many.. San Francisco Marathon 2010 or Reggae Marathon in Jamaica 2003
Favorite Bling: A head band, pink, that was given to me by the RD of the Sogonapmit Marathon in 2011 along with a piece of carved wood. It was for winning the women’s marathon out of 5! It was in the middle of nowhere in American Fork , UT and started at 3AM and climbed up a Mountain for 13.1 and then we ran back down. Amazing.
Next Race: This weekend an 18 miler in Memphis, TN and then a speed 5 k in Memphis to prepare for The Richmond VA Marathon November 10th.
What Makes You FEEL Fast?: When I get to ‘flow’, I look down at my watch and I look again- I am going faster than I thought and was not even trying. A wonderful wonderful gliding run feeling.


Who inspires your running and why?
I run to achieve my best that I can be as an athlete and to try to reach my own goals that I have set: To Run A Sub 4 Marathon in every state and to become faster in my marathon (goal to have it down to 3:10 by the end of 2012 and then working on each year to subtract another 10 min of marathon time).

My friends inspire me so much also. I have met the best runners and friends, ever, through the Marathon Maniacs club. I feel that in almost every state I know someone that I can trust and run with. Wonderful people. My recent experience with the KarhuTeam/ Running shoes has also been inspiring me. I have met, through them, talented and fast marathoners that are traveling to races in the US and in Finland. Karhu has provided support and encouragement pre and post race!

What’s the most beautiful place that you’ve run?
The bridge when I was running the San Francisco Marathon and the fog over the water was amazing…. Another was the wild horses I saw while at Missoula MT Marathon , such a pretty place ( MT).

What is the thing you splurge on after a race?
If I place top 3 or something, then perhaps a new racing shirt or hair band…other than that, nothing.

Why do you race?
#1) The competition, to try to meet my racing goal times, and to #2) Hang out with my running friends and running family. So, so much fun.

What is the one piece of running gear you can’t leave the house without?
Karhu Shoes – my Karhu Forward Fulcrums or racing flats.

If you can’t run, you’re ________?
Reading, kitty cat hanging out at home, and helping others as a Behavioral Psychologist. I try to help others make concrete reachable goals and also then to meet them! I love helping others so, so much and this also helps to fulfill my life.

We also asked Alicia if there was anything else she wanted to share and she had this to say:
I have run 78 marathons to date and 36 Sub 4hour states. I was lucky enough to run the Boston Marathon in 2003. Wow. I have also been able to help PanCAN charity through my great running friend and RIF member, Hideki Kinoshita (RIF #88) – He inspires me.

I LOVE TO TRAVEL and to be healthy so this is a large part as to why I have been running so many races- to see all that I can see in this lovely world and to meet others while achieving my racing goals . Meeting others and sharing experiences unites us all with running.


You’d think someone who has been running as long as Alicia has would have burned out by now but she is still working hard to improve and from my emails with her and her posts on Facebook and Twitter, I can feel her excitement. She truly does love racing and meeting fellow runners. I can’t even imagine having run 78 marathons and having 36 sub 4 marathons. I hope to someday break that 4 hour mark so Alicia is definitely motivating me to go for it!

Thank you for sharing with us Alicia. Good luck at your next few races. I know you’ll Run It Fast!

The smaller medal in the photo is for the 5K that was also held. Love these surfboard medals. Great colors and they are also bottle openers so they are useful too!
