Why I Blog
I love running and running is a part of me. Yes, I have become more committed to running recently and some owe that to my commitment to my father and desire to remember him in a meaningful way. In some ways that is indeed correct. I do run to honor and remember my dad and I am compelled to run a marathon for the same reason. But I did not initially chose to run a marathon for my dad. It was always a wish rooted deep down inside of me.
I have honestly been a true runner since college. Okay, what is a true runner? Well, in my earlier years I ran because of soccer. I may have even run to increase my training for soccer but soccer was the goal. Not running. In college I took an aerobic running class and became hooked on running. Thank goodness for those necessary gym credits I had to take to pay off the new gym on campus. Running has been in and out of my life since then and now I am committed to keeping it in my life. As a single woman, it was easy to run whenever I wanted. I could go to the gym before, after, or before and after work. No worries. Now running takes more planning and commitment. And that brings me to the blog.
So simply put, I blog about running to be a better runner. To analyze my workouts and the impact of life commitments. I blog to find motivation and hopefully motivate others. And I blog to document my journey to my first marathon and beyond!
