Blog of the Month

It is that time of the month again! Time to spread some love and share some information on another wonderful blog out there. Perhaps you know it, perhaps you don't, but why not read a bit about this month's blog and tell me what you think?!

Introducing The TriGirl Chronicles! Courtney is the voice behind the blog and she has been a on-again-off-again runner for 14 years (her words, not mine). To keep herself focused on the "on-again" she signed up for a sprint triathlon in 2012. Don't we all sign up for races to keep ourselves focused? Okay, according to that Runner's World article I read yesterday not all of us are like that but I am. Races keep me focused and motivated. They are fun! They are wild! They are crazy! They can suck you into doing things you thought you wouldn't do, or couldn't do, especially when the price is right.

Ironically, Courtney's post today is just about that! That ticket price and a good cause got her to sign up for The Rat Snake. She can tell her story much better than I can on this race but I guess it is challenging and that $25 made it seem irresistible. Kinda like that $20-something I paid to register for the Maui Marathon again after saying "Never, ever will I run this course again. NEVER!" And I must confess, going back and reading that blog post today still brings tears to my eyes. Geesh! Good thing I don't have much make-up on!

Courtney is a fellow SweatPink ambassador and I am so happy she signed up to be featured as one of my blogs of the month and yes, I will be opening up entries again later in the year. I still have a good list of applicants to feature! In the meantime, hop over and say ALOHA to Courtney at The TriGirl Chronicles and let her know Life as a Running Mom sent you!

Daily Gratitude: I am thankful for the nurturing support of women.
Daily Affirmation: I will beat this cough! ... sorry, telling myself that is what is important today ;)
