So I’ve been getting a number of new followers lately and I am part of a blog hop this week and I figure now is a good a time as any to say, HI!
6 years ago, when I was 24, I decided I needed something to challenge me. I wanted to do something I had never done before. While flipping through a magazine I found an ad for the Walt Disney Princess half marathon. Somehow, I convinced my friend to do it with me and I had a goal! At that time the race was in March so this was a perfect goal to hit before my 25th birthday.
My first half marathon
Fast Forward to today and I have done numerous 5K, 10K, half marathons, and I am now working toward marathon number 3. I also have done a handful of sprint triathlons and 1 olympic.
My first Goofy Challenge
I actually turned my love of running/triathlon into a career. When I convinced the nonprofit I was working for to add a 5K to their walk and that grew into a series. I then joined up with a local timing company to be their Race Director for 2 triathlons. I have since turned that into managing and race directing for a national event series! Who would have thought that this simple challenge to myself would become my most favorite job!
Love my job!
So that’s pretty much my journey over the last few years. In there I’ve gotten married, gained a few too many pounds, moved from MD to FL, and met some of the most amazing people! I’m grateful for all of the great things these sports have brought to me and I can’t wait to see what is yet to come!
Me and the hubby!
That’s about where the story leaves off. I’m trying super hard to get better and go faster! Welcome to my journey and I hope you stick around for a bit to join me!
