Welcome to the GirlRevRunning blog. My name is Nancy Switzler and I currently serve as the pastor of a Lutheran Church in Oxnard, CA. I also run! I first started running as a way to lose weight…now it is a way of life. Here I share thoughts about running, about faith, about politics (once in awhile), and about life!
My latest accomplishment is qualifying for, and running in the 2018 Boston Marathon. This was an awesome experience.
Recently I’ve coached a couple people, one to a PR and another to her first half marathon. Now I’m coaching family members and a couple friends. I’m liking this coaching and so am working to set up a coaching business. Stay tuned for more info…or send me a note!
- I’m married to Scott. We have two adult children and three chihuahuas.
- We live in an old Craftsman Bungalow. I’ve been restoring it and I will occasionally share what I am doing.
- In addition to Boston I’ve run 7 marathons, for a total of 8. I’ve run one 50k, numerous half marathons, a few 10k’s, and lots of 5k’s. By the way, 5k’s are the hardest races, for me at least!
