One of my New Year's Resolutions to run a marathon. I started training for one in 2008, but I got a stress fracture after a half-marathon and then I was pregnant with Miss Banana and then life was too crazy to commit to a marathon. I probably should have stuck with it--it would have been a nice stress reliever--but I didn't, so now it's time to try again!
I pulled out the treadmill tonight, pulled the year-and-a-half-old-brand new running shoes out of the closet (I got them right before my stress fracture) and did my first 3 miles of training.
And it felt SOO good! I can't wait to go outside for some nice road runs!
I'm a Midwestern girl who's lived in Missouri, Utah, Missouri again, Nebraska, Mississippi and Iowa. This is my story of life with my farmer-turned-professor husband, two exceptional little boys, and one extraordinary little girl who happens to have Trisomy 21, or Down syndrome. The stories you are about to read are all real; I couldn't make it up if I tried.
