About me: 
About me....lets see- I am a teacher, a mother to 5, and a wife. I went through a time with my running where mileage- training- races were my focus, now I am in it more for overall fitness and fun. Life is too short to not enjoy!!!
Why do I run: 
I run for me! I run to relieve stress, to set a good example for my girls, and to get a sense of accomplishment. Running puts me at peace. Its my one time a day I get all to me. (besides I'm extremely crabby without it)
Why I started running: 
Initially to lose the "Freshmen 15" I put on in college. It seemed like the quickest way to drop lbs.
