Week 1 Jan.
My goals are posted and I am on my way!!
I never really introduced myself so let me do that. I am 33 years old. I am a wife, married to my high school sweetheart. We met in 8th grade band. We have three kids. Two boys, J-5, I-4 and a sweet little girl you who is going to be 15 months who I will call A. I am a teacher by day, a mom and runner by night, well early morning for the running part. I try hard to get my butt out of bed in the morning so I can get my runs in before I start my busy day. If I am lazy I then get in my running at night. I started running the summer of 2012 after a LONG break from running. In 2005 I ran my first marathon and after that I said that I would never run again. After having three kids I needed to do something. I was doing Zumba and don't get me wrong I loved going to Zumba the problem was it only happened at certain times and those times I either couldn't make it or it was right in the middle of our family time. I needed something that I could do when ever so I started running again. It really started during our family vacation to Disney World (WE LOVE DISNEY!!!) I thought that if I signed up to run the Princess Half in Feb. of 2013 then I would be able to go to Disney again. When we returned home form Disney in early July I signed up, started running and haven't stopped since. I even ran the Hartford Half in Oct., which I had done in 2001. Now that I have been running for 6 months I remember why I was a runner before. Running helps me to be a better person.
Now I have plans and goals all centered around running! I am happy to call myself a runner again!!
I never got to write down what I needed to get done this week, so here it is! You will have to wait and see if I get it all done until the weekend.
Day 1- 3 miles
Day 2- 2 miles
Day 3- 3 miles
Day 4- 6 miles
Day 5- 2 miles
The weather is dry but COLD!!! I am really liking all the items that I got for running in the cold. So far it is keeping me warm.
