I have always been envious of the people that I would see running around town. So, finally after about 5 years of watching them I joined them! It was very hard and discouraging at first....but you know what... I'm training new folks now! I run 3 half marathons, and I'm still contemplating the elusive 26.2. I will do it, just need to figure out when. I'm a full time working mother of 5 yo twins. So anytime my husband gives me the 'OK' to go run I go for it. "Me Time" is vital!!! Its all about the running. The way it clears your head. The mood lifter afterwards, and the clearer focus it lends to the rest of my day. So happy I finally got off of the couch and started running!
