I am a Runner

It's been a couple of years since my last blog post.  In that time, I have become a runner.  You may remember my first race, the Gasparilla 5K in 2009.  My goal was to run the entire 5K.  Well, that didn't quite happen but I finished the race none the less.  I continued running 5K races, increasing my pace a little.

I finally decided to join a running group that a couple of my friends already ran with.  That was the game changer!  I like running but I like my sleep more.  So I wasn't really motivated to get up at 5:30am on my own to run.  Meeting a group of people to run with made a huge difference.  I wasn't doing it by myself and was accountable to others.

The Suncoast Striders running group helped me achieve my running goals.  I have now run three half marathons and two full marathons!  Marathon recaps coming soon.
