Oh once upon a time....

About 9 years ago, I ran my first half marathon. I did great. I felt great. I couldn't walk down stairs for two days, but I still felt great.  5 days later I got married.  Fast forward 2 years and I ran my first marathon THIS marathon to be exact.  It was beautiful, it was a perfect race day. I didn't do too great. 5:55:55.  I was also about 40 lbs heavier than when I ran my first half marathon, why haven't I made the connection that my weight has held me back as a runner?  Now 72 lbs heavier than I was 9 years ago, I have my sight set on THIS race, I have to qualify, I have to run a 3:40 marathon to be able to qualify, I WILL do it.  I've been inspired this EARLY Monday morning (the baby just fell back to sleep, its 5:30), he may get up in an hour if he does what he has been doing lately.... It could be a LONG day for me.

Wrap up Baby Andrew in the stroller just after you have put the boys off to school and start the steps that will get you towards running.
Just be sure you have started a load of wash before the stroller walk/run so you can toss it in the dryer when you get home. That way you'll have gotten two things done. And you will feel better from the fresh air. Just saying...
Good Luck!
