About Me

Hi and thanks for stopping by and checking my blog out. I wanted to do an about me that was cool but I stared at my screen and I had nothing. I could list who I am...I am a wife, a mom, a friend, a daughter and so on, but really I am not defined by any of those titles. I am just me.

I started my adventures in running in 2008 when my daughter number 1 was 8 months old. I say running, but really it was fast walking. I have always wanted to be a runner, but never had the drive to really go out and get it. In life, sports have come naturally, I never felt like I had to push to be good at the sports I played. Running is an entirely different story. It does not come naturally and it is hard. I remember in middle school every Friday we had to run a mile, I was almost always the last person in averaging a 12 minute pace. Now years later I am working hard to get to a 12 minute pace and feel good about it.

I started a blog to help keep me accountable, to work through my thoughts of self doubt and to celebrate my accomplishments. There are times when you just need a little perspective to remind you how far you have come. I feel like in 2011 I was on track and hitting my goals. 2012 was filled with new adventures and a pregnancy announcement at on New Years Eve 2012. With baby number 2 on the way my training slipped away as I was plagued with round ligament pain. Baby girl #2 arrived in August 2013 and I have been now working to lose the baby weight and bring back the girl I was in 2011.

And so the journey continues.
