When I was thinking of how to introduce myself, I immediately wrote I am a mother, wife and runner. Unfortunately, over the last 18 months, the runner part has not been entirely true. Sure, I have done my share of running and even a few races but I have lacked a sense of dedication and motivation toward running and my overall health. Becoming a mother and adjusting to life as working mom of energetic toddler boy has certainly come at the cost of my running and healthy lifestyle. I would not change a minute of the past 18 months nor would I blame this lacking of running on anyone but myself. I have a completely supportive husband, a little boy who to go for a run in the jogger, and really love running. See no good excuses not to run… I just need to learn how to balance it all. Honestly, I am not sure I ever will but who does???
In an effort to regain a commitment to running and health, I have decided to run a marathon. The Vermont City Marathon on May 29th 2011 to be exact. I have always found the best way for me to get back into something is to jump in head first. So this blog will document my journey back to running and that 26.2 on 5/29/11. Also now that I have published this post I can't back down!
