A blogger, me? But I think in our time and age, almost everyone is a blogger in some shape or form. I guess I am a just a late starter, I guess like how I started running. That was back in 2009, when I first stepped onto a treadmill as a way to shake up my cardio routine at the gym. Back then, I was pretty overweight, obese even, and I had decided to start exercising to change that....but that's a whole story in of itself. I will post that story soon on why I chose to get healthy and lead an active lifestyle. With pictures to boot, which are shocking at how I look back then. More to come!
The emphasis on my blog will be my training for the different endurance events I plan on doing for the 2011 season. I am continuing my commitment to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team in Training (www.teamintraining.org) and I am a Mentor for the Summer Marathon Season! I will be mentoring runners from the St. Paul and South East Metro for the Minneapolis and San Diego Rock 'N Roll marathons. I am so excited to be doing this, last year as a TnT member I ran Twin Cities Marathon and had a blast and met some really amazing people. Thanks to all my family and friends I raised over $2000 to find a cure for blood cancers. February 5th is the kickoff for the season and I cant wait! With my training for the marathon I will also be training for my first ever triathlon; the Lifetime Fitness Triathlon on July 9th! I have 6 months to learn how to swim LOL! Keep coming back and seeing my progress and also read about my life in general. Stay tuned!
