Just a little redhead running through life.

Just a little red head running through life.


Running is my passion.

I'm Andrea McKinney and I'm a runner.

I compete for Oiselle Volée and I am a co-leader of the Oklahoma Oiselle Volée Team. I train with Wahoo! Running. I am also an Ambassador for Tierra Sunglasses.

I got the name Lil Red from my 4th grade cheerleading coach, I've been called Lil Red or Red since. My Wahoo friends call me AF.

I love competing in races ranging in distance from the mile to marathons.

I'm not a professional and I'm not an expert, but this blog will be an outlet for me to share what I have learned and experienced in my 11 years of training and racing.

I am not the best runner. My form isn't perfect. I don't always stretch or lift weights like I should. I try to eat healthy, but if you put chocolate in front of me, I'm going to eat it.

I've had bad runs, and I've had really bad runs. I've fallen down. I've fallen short. I've been defeated, time and time again. But despite all this I keep running, I keep trying to be the best runner I can be, to be the best version of myself.

I hope you enjoy following my running journey and I hope I am able to inspire others to run, as well.
