My journey to 26.2

On July 15th, exactly 1 year and 1 month after my daughter was born I decided to complete a marathon. I had given up my dreams of ever completing one but my passion for the sport of running was renewed simply because of 1 single race. The Civitans 10k is a local race and I finished 2nd in my age group with a PR of 49:45! That is an 8:00 pace per mile. I couldn’t believe it. My previous PR was 54 minutes! I shaved over 4 minutes off my time!
So, with a renewed energy for running and a lofty goal of qualifying for Boston, my racing dreams were back on the front burner! I have completed a handful of half marathons, 10ks, a 15k, a 5 miler, and some 5ks to date! Follow me on my journey to completing 26.2! Boston or Bust!
