I had this intro clearly drafted in my head during a recent run, but I lost all my inspiration now that I’m actually sitting still at my computer. I do some of my best thinking while I run. I’ve written so many blog posts in my head while running, complete with a dash of wit. If only I could have some sort of speech to text thing going while I run so I could keep track of my thoughts. I guess the neighbors might look at me funny if I’m talking while I run. At least I’d be pushing my son in the jogging stroller so it will look like I’m talking to him :).
Anyway, my idea for this blog popped into my head during a run a few weeks ago. I was thinking about how I love reading running magazines and blogs, but I don’t come across many that offer practical advice for the running parent- so there you have it!
I’m not an expert by any means. I’m just a mom who likes to run. I ran a marathon and a half marathon in 2006. Since then, I’ve been an on and off runner (on when it’s warm out; off when it’s cold because I’m kind of a wuss about running in the cold, but I’m working on it!) I’m currently training for a half marathon this Spring and my son comes along for almost all of my training runs. Unfortunately, he won’t be allowed to join me on race day and I know I’ll miss his company, but I suppose my hubby will serve as an acceptable replacement.
In addition to running, I love spending time with family and friends, cooking, baking, photography, traveling, and long walks on the beach :).
