Running

Staying active has always been an important part of my life.  I can’t really remember a time when I was not involved in some sort of physical activity.  At this point in my life running takes the cake.  I absolutely love it and I do not feel complete when I am unable to get out there and hit the pavement.  Unfortunately, my body doesn’t like running as much as I do and I have been sidelined by a few pretty serious injuries (a groin pull, 2 major stress fractures, and a calf muscle tear).  It seems that as soon as I get to my goal pace and distance, I end up injured and miss the race I was training for.

I have been back to running for about a year now (after having my daughter Annabelle) and things are going great!  No injuries in a year, that’s a record for me!  I finally found a pair of shoes that I LOVE (Brooks Pure Flow 2s) and I have been increasing my speed in the past few months.  I am looking forward to my next race and I’m hoping for a BQ in May!
