So who is the person behind this blog, well…
I’m a 20-something year old that made a New Year’s deal with myself to change my life back in 2008 and it has made a large impact on my life. That simple goal I made was to run a 5K sometime within the year.
As you can guess, I accomplished that goal and decided to keep running with it (yes, literally). Before I had completed that first 5K, I was eyeing another one. By that second 5K, I had my eye on a half marathon. I was surprising myself and kept saying to myself “Who is this girl? But I like her!”
Years later, I now consider myself a “runner” and am learning so much about how to live a healthier life than the path I was on. I have fought injuries and personal doubt, but somehow I keep tying the laces on my running shoes and putting one foot in front of the other to reach the goals I have set.
And I can’t forget BERT! Bert is Bert. He is along for the journey that is my life. I use him to capture all the moments I don’t want to forget. He represents me. There is a long back story on how Bert came into my life, that will be shared later.
