I chose to write today for a couple of reasons:
Today was the day I was supposed to run my first marathon. Which is the whole reason I started this blog to document that journey.
Today I ran two miles after a whole month off... it was tough and challenging.
However, I have a good reason well ...two good reasons that I did not run that marathon and two mile is kinda tough for me.
I have had a very rough pregnancy and was getting sick up to ten times a day up till about a week ago. I am finally feeling better. I was not able to run much during that time due to being so sick and running made it worse.
Since I could not train for the marathon properly I had to postpone to till next. It was a tough decision but really the best one.
Now that I am feeling better... I have started running and working out again. It is not as much as my first pregnancy but I need to listen to my body and do what is best for the two babies on board.
I am still on my journey to the a marathon is has just taken a wonderful detour and I cant wait to see how the journey unfolds.
I am happy to be back running and blogging thought!!

So embracing stepping out of my comfort zone, I have decided to set up my own running group. I am really lost on how to go about it. I really dont know too many runners in my area ( I guess the point of starting a group). I have started researching and reaching out to some people but really I am still at square one. So I thought I would reach out to the blogging world. I have a few questions...
Have you started a running group?
Live in the area and want find some running buddies?
Have any tips on how to start a group?
When researching, I stumbled upon Irun Mommies and was wondering if anyone had any experience with them?
Any input would be greatly appericated.
I am very excited to get this group in motion...

Three Reasons I am excited about this race...
1. We run along the beach and I find nothing more relaxing or peaceful than running along the water. I have been missing running along the water due to all the snow so I am pumped to be back along the beach.
