A first? Kind of I had considered starting a blog a couple of months ago to start tracking my running and well, I didn’t. I got lazy and started in with the self doubt non-sense! Lovely right? So lets get to the nitty-gritty of who I am and why the heck I am here!!
I am a runner…sort of….let’s just say I am working on it!!
I ran from the time I was 10 years old until I hit about 18, I LOVED it!! But life happened. I started college, working more and also had a family (they are the best!!) I also picked up some bad habits….I am ashamed to say it but…smoking! EEEK! Anyway I have been getting older and really started thinking about life and what I want out of it, this is the conclusion I came to and why I am here now!
Love, faith, health, grace, passion and fun! I have realized to reach these goals I just had to go for it!!
So I, started attending a new Church that makes me feel like part of their family and is really bringing me closer to God.
I had acupuncture on May 2, 2014 and quit smoking!!! Whoop! Whoop! Haven’t looked back!
I started running on May 18, 2014! Holy Moly I felt as if I were going to DIE!!!! I couldn’t breathe, my legs felt like they were filled with lead, and I couldn’t only go a short ways without stopping to walk.
Ran my first 5K on May 24, 2014….what was I thinking?????? I walked some but, I FINISHED! With a time of 34:42! Not great but I finished my first race since high school….I’m not going to lie, I literally had tears of joy in my eyes after I crossed that line!!!
At that point I realized I don’t give myself enough credit. We are capable of SO. MUCH. MORE!!!! Don’t let yourself get lost in life, its easy to do!
A husband, three kids and a full time job!! Yeah I got lost. But I am back and going to track it here, I hope you enjoy reading and being a part of this journey!!
