I’m a 41 year old mother to 5 beautiful children (ages 23-6) and the wife of a wonderful, supportive runner husband. I hope to be able to write from time to time about my thoughts, struggles and triumphs in running and life as a mom in general (when I have time from my life to actually write my thoughts down!). Since I started running on February 8, 2010, I’ve run in many 5k races, 10k races and 7 half marathons. I ran my first marathon on March 4, 2012 and completed my 4th marathon on January 25, 2015 (and got a PR!). Through running, drinking lots of water, making healthier food choices and cross training, I have lost 76 pounds since my journey began.
My goals here are to be able to motivate, encourage and help you with any questions you might have about getting started as a runner. If I don’t know the answer, I’ll help you find it! I also hope this can be a way for me to stay motivated and accountable too.
Whether you are just beginning or a seasoned runner, I hope you’ll be able to get something useful out of what I have to say.
Thank you for stopping by!
