While I love my family I also love my sanity. To keep said sanity I've found refuge in running.

In 2008 I didn't realize what a sedentary life I had been living. After feeling less than in love with myself I decided I needed to take some action. 

With a lot of time and dedication I completed my first half marathon. The minute my fatigued legs crossed that glorious finish line I was hooked. 

Life, as always, managed to throw a few curve balls. A car accident tied me up from running for a while. After some time, and lots of support and encouragement from my husband, I got back on track, and back to pavement pounding. 

I'm back at it, constantly looking to hit Personal Records (PRs), and always in search of a good half to run.
