There was once a time that I wasn’t able to run 50 feet.
I was not a runner. I wasn’t overweight, but I was definitely unhealthy. I met a a girl, who became my best friend, and she decided to push my limits.
She helped push me into shape. She had me join track and cross country and I became a runner.
It hasn’t always been easy to keep running. I am a mom of 5 kids and they are all homeschooled or too young to be schooled. Needless to say, it is not easy to put in a few miles. Let alone all the times I was pregnant (I ran when I could but got uncomfortable), and the times postpartum, it just wasn’t always possible.
Now I am at a place I am able to find time to squeeze in a mile here and a mile there. It isn’t easy staying motivated. I would be lying if I said there weren’t more times than I can count life got in the way. Errands, kids schooling, my schooling, just life in general all try and weasel their way into not letting the sun kiss my skin and my feet hit the road, sand, treadmill or gravel of the terrain I choose to run.
I know I am not alone in this venture. I know I am not the only one to lose motivation to workout in whatever way possible. Therefore I am going to do what I know how to do best.
I am going to write.
We are going to become accountability partners. Yes, you and me.
I am going to document my runs in all different locations. My workouts I squeeze in. My at home workouts that I reluctantly do because I have no other options.
Hopefully me writing about my experiences will help you to write your own experiences.
Lets do this thing called life together. Lets get healthy, together.
We can do this.
Come run with me.
