Welcome to My Life!

Who am I?

I'm a 38 year old wife, mom and runner. After the birth of my daughter 3 years ago I found myself completely in love with my baby and my husband, but I hated the way I felt and looked after gaining 80 pounds during pregnancy. It took me experiencing horrific stomach pains on a weekly basis to realize that it was time to stop putting myself last and it was time to do something. 

(Here I am after finishing my first 10K on New Year's Day.  I was only half miserable suffering from strep and a sinus infection.)
Little by little, I cut out soda, coffee and cut back on my beloved red wine. I cut back on carbs and gluten. Then I started practicing intermittent fasting. 4 months into this I felt better but still not great. Something was missing. It was time to exercise again. June of 2015 was when I became a runner. Since then I've run two 5K's, a 10K and I'm registered for my first Half in May 2016. Let the training begin!
