Hello and welcome to Music for Miles. I am a 20-something amateur musician and recreational runner based in Philadelphia. I blog about classical music, running, running to classical music, and maybe some other random things here and there.
My running story: Everyone starts running as soon as they learn to walk. Running has always been a part of my life, whether it was conditioning for tennis or participating in the 4 x 100 m relay for a school sports festival (back in like the 90s). I was just never a runner. In 2012, I signed up for my first ever road race — the renowned 10 mile Broad Street Run — to challenge myself, officially caught the running bug, and have been a runner ever since 🙂
My music story: I fell in love with the piano when I was 2 years old and started taking lessons when I was 5. I can also play the flute, oboe, and harpsichord (and I dabble in some other instruments for fun). In college, I pursued a minor in music, performed with many different ensembles, served as an eZseatU campus ambassador for the Philadelphia Orchestra, and interned at WXPN 88.5 FM. I don’t work in the music industry for a living, but I still practice my piano and attend classical music concerts as often as I can.
