I think i might become a runner yet!

Dang, I'm sorry y'all! I know I've been MIA but work has been cra cra! AND when work is crazy then the rest of my life follows suit. But do you want to know one really awesome thing that HAS happened in my life? Running.

I NEVER thought I would say that but, it's true! It's only been 3 weeks but it's happening! I've made a friend of another Mom at my kids daycare (I know that's amazing enough, someone likes me!) and we're dedicated to running together at least 3 times a week, y'all we've actually been going 4+!!!! HOLLA FOR A DOLLA!

We've been just doing our slow thang and following the couch 2 5k program on my i-phone some days. We may not be fast and we may not cover a ton of distance but we're DOING IT. And here's the best part, yesterday I was willing to run whether my friend could go or not. THAT'S A FIRST!

Now I'm not going all unrealistic on you and saying that I'm going to be this marathon runner or anything but I've realized you don't have to be in order to be a runner! You just have to go out and do it! Even Chris is impressed with how long I've stuck with this already!

SO coming up I've got a 5k twilight run in Frederick, MD on May 4th and then another 5k (which is the color run!!! CAN'T FREAKING WAIT!!) on May 19th. Lastly I've signed up for a 1/2 marathon in Baltimore MD in October! OH HOLY HELL! I don't have huge dreams of running the whole 13.1 miles BUT I WILL finish it! That's my goal. The.End. And Now, I actually feel like I will be able to!

So get your run on people, and when I say run, I mean slow jog walk!


PS If you have any running tips, favorite running products, or if you want me to sign up to do a run with you let me know!!! I'm up for all of the motivation and accountablity I can get!!!

  1. I ran the Battleship in Wilmington a year ago. It was awesome and such a great feeling when I finished. My one regret in that I let training run my life (pardon the pun). I followed a regimen to the T and it made training miserable. I felt that if I didn't follow it, then I would surely not be able to finish the race. NOT TRUE! Don't let the training dictate your life. If you can't get a 4 or 5 miler in during the week, you'll be okay. If you don't run but 8 miles one Saturday when you're supposed to run 10, it's okay! Your body will step it up on race day and you'll be fine! Life happens and kids happen. If you have any questions, call or email me anytime whatsoever! Good luck!
