Confessions From A Tired Mama
Well ladies this is it, my first blog. I officially became a contributor a few months ago but embarrassingly have not run since I finished the Baltimore half marathon a month and a half ago. Pathetic I know! My excuses? I have many but in a nutshell I'm just plain pooped! I have an active 2-year-old and a 5-month-old sporadic nighttime sleeper. Every day I know I SHOULD run but I seem to find my tired state a good enough excuse to put running off just one more day. With my next race quickly approaching (The Washington D.C. Firefly Marathon--March 29, 2008) I know it's time to hit the road again but the thought of running outside in the frigid winter air makes me want to cry. How are you ladies able to train during the winter months? In addition, how do you get your runs in with your children? I have the Cougar Chariot double and love it however, my children expire after about 30-minutes. This works for short runs but what about the long runs? Do I just need to buck up, get up early before my husband leaves for work and run in the cold dark morning hours? Please ladies, help me take courage!!!!
