A First For Everything…and then some!

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!!
