I'm a wife, a mother, a business owner, a pet lover, an animal rescuer, a runner, a computer geek, a reader, a nutcase, a baker, a crafter, a massage therapist. If I have to label myself, I prefer quirky, over weird.
|Why do I run:
To clear my head, to be strong, so I can eat, and any other of the cliche memes that come to mind. I run because I love how it makes me feel.
|Why I started running:
I started to run so I could eat. No lie. I wanted to lose 30 pounds. My local Weight Watcher group was putting on this "Walk a 5K challenge." I knew I could walk a 5K so I thought, what the hell? I'll train to run it. I had run off an on previously but never really seriously. So when I went to sign up for a 5K, there were none in the area around the time I my training would be over, so I signed up for a half marathon 9 months out instead! I trained and ran it and have done three others since. I love to run, I love to eat. This way, I can do both!
