I’m Ally Lim, and I am a Fierce Female Athlete.
Magic 89.9 FM Junior Jock. The GUIDON Sports Writer. Retired collegiate Track & Field Athlete, now a serious recreational Long Distance Runner. Voice Over Talent. Thespian. Diva. GO-GETTER!
With that go-getter attitude, comes the desire to constantly take on new challenges. Since I started running when I was 18, I vowed to myself I’d finish a full 42 km marathon before I graduated college. So here I am starting a blog to make sure I document my journey and accomplish my goal.
I’m also a sportswriter for The GUIDON, so I’ll be posting my published articles here. I used to run track, specializing in 3km and 10km running events and 3km and 5km racewalk events, so I’ll definitely be posting about track training programs, track competitions and track athletes. Aside from this, expect posts about sports news, workout programs, fashion, make up, diet, events, and other sports (aside from running) too.
“The Chickzilla” is the name I chose for this blog because when I was on a beach trip once, a friend noted how tall I was (I am 5 feet 6.5 inches) compared to the rest of the girls with us. He proceeded to nickname me “Chickzilla”. Over time the name evolved to mean many other things. When I’d overtake men at races, I’d be called chickzilla. When I’d get really angry, I’d be called chickzilla. When I would squat heavier weights than men at the gym would, I’d be called chickzilla. When I would be rockin a fierce outfit with skyscraper heels, I’d also be called chickzilla. The name now means: a woman who is strong, athletic, and fierce (the “zilla” portion) but still feminine, stylish and fabulous (the “chick” portion).
See you on the road…or track!
