I started running in November of 2013 for health, fitness, and because it's one of the few socially acceptable ways to attain "alone time" when one has a baby.
I am not a natural runner. Not even a little bit. I'm the girl who got side stitches within a quarter mile of the mile run in sixth grade, and whose previous attempts at running typically ended in knee pain.
I'd run a little in 2012. Then I got pregnant and stopped for the next year.
But something happened after I finished my gentle couch-to-5K in early 2014. Running started to be fun.
So I started to run, and in the fall of 2014 I completed my first half marathon.
I signed up for more.
The blog is mostly about my training, including the strength and mobility training I do in an effort to keep from injuring myself. It works better sometimes than others.
