Running for sanity

“I run because long after my footprints fade away, maybe I will have inspired a few to reject the easy path, hit the trails, put one foot in front of the other, and come to the same conclusion I did: I run because it always takes me where I want to go.” -dean karnazes

I have been into running for almost 8 years. Most people run to stay fit, but I run because I love to run. I have another blog called “A Twin Thing,” but I wanted to set up a running and biking blog. It’s hard when I have a three year old and I am a single mom. I don’t have sitters so I can run all the time, but I am trying to get back into it. My current goal is 40 miles a week, even though it is raining outside.

I will be using strava to keep track of my times for running and biking, but my other goal is to make it to fifty half marimageathons.
This is the first race I ever placed overall. This was the run for the racc race in 2011. Lilly was just over a year old.

I am also trying to do the fifty states, but that will take years. I have ran two full marathons as well. I hope you will follow me through my journey as I get my lonely ass back into the game!
