So I sat down at the end of last year and wrote out some goals that I wanted to achieve for 2015. As you can see I really went wild and wrote a lot. Ok maybe this was the before shot but still this picture makes me laugh. Sitting down to write out goals always makes me nervous. What if I don't met my goals? What if I set goals that scare me? What if people think my goals are dumb or easy? Well one of the major goals on my list involved signing up for a big race! On New Years eve on the stroke of midnight I wasn't kissing Mr. J, I was on my phone signing up for a race (gotta save some cash!). So here it is for the first time ever! I'm admitting that I have sign up for & will be completing THIS . . .
On November 7, 2015 I will be running 26.2 miles and completing my first marathon. I am scared and excited and every other emotion possible!
There is my motto! The year of running. Not just distance but faster pace. I WILL hit my PR in my half this year. And then I will go on to conquer the marathon and then from there who knows? I have one other race on my radar for the year but it's going to have to wait until after the marathon to see how I feel.
This year my blog will probably be mostly about running! I will still share my family and my life and my love of randomness. But I think you will see a shift this year to mostly running & fitness. I want to share the ups and downs of marathon training. I want to share this process with you all of you. I want to give you an honest look at the life of a wife, mother, runner. I hope you will come along for this wild and crazy ride. I hope you will encourage me in the down times and cheer with me in the good times. I love you all and can't wait to share SO many runfies (running seflie), shoefies (shoe selfie) and other random loves with you!!
