My Story


Welcome to my blog. I am a 30-something mother of 2 crazy little girls. I started running in order to lose weight. I challenged myself to run the Disney Marathon 9 months after the beginning of my weight loss journey. Within that time, I lost 90 pounds and ran the Disney Marathon in 5:12.
Before

After

While running my first marathon, I swore I would never do another. I was in so much pain and thought I was a one and done. This January, I will be running my 5th Disney Marathon and 16th marathon in 4 years. I have qualified for Boston and will finally be running the Boston Marathon in April of 2012.
To say running is addicting is an understatement. Running has become a part of my life. My kids have grown up around me running and I am so happy that I can be a good influence for them. My daughters have run fun runs with me and look forward to going to my races.
I have also been a member of the Brooks ID team for the past 2 years and have loved every minutes of it. I still can not believe that I get to wear the bright Brooks singlet to all my races. It is an honor and I have really grown to love the brand.

Just found your blog - what a great story. That's exactly why I started running, too. I knocked out my first 2 marathons since October and #3 is in less than 2 weeks. Getting stronger and faster all the time!
