Hi Everyone!

I thought I would introduce myself to everyone as one of the new mommies. I am so excited to join a group of woman and mom's who love to run as much as I do. I love every one's comments, advice, and even their struggles. (Heaven knows we all have them.)
We are known as the Foster Bunch, mostly because I am usually running with my children. I have been running for about 3 years now, and have become pretty addicted to it. I did take a little time off to have a baby, but have gotten right back into running. I also have a wonderful support group of ladies that I run with here in Idaho. We have such a great time training together, and are currently training for the Dam Marathon in June. We are doing it as a relay so there are six of us running. I am also training for my first 1/2,it is in August, and I can't wait. I have completed many other shorter distance races, but I have never gone this far. So if any one has some wonderful tips, I am all ears. Again,I am so excited to join you all!

Sounds like we might be in the very same neck 'o the woods. The Teton Dam race was my first marathon two years ago and last year I ran the relay with three other friends (a MUCH easier way to run a marathon)! I don't think I'll be running any of the TD races this year since I'll still be in recovery mode from a May marathon, but if not, I'll definitely be volunteering. I'm seriously eyeing up the Mesa Falls race in August, though. Is that the one you're doing?

Good to meet a fellow Idahoan! Give me a shout anytime if you're curious about any races in the area. I'm starting to knock most of them out one by one.

Wow, we have a lot of Idaho runners. I also live in Idaho and love that there are so many running moms out there.
Welcome to all those new moms who have posted the past few days!

I think that I have a team for the DAM Relay too!

Where do you live?

I'm in Blackfoot!

Welcome, I married an Idaho boy, so I already like you! I did the Teton Dam 1/2 last year. It is a fun run, I have a lot of family there, maybe I can meet up with all you Idaho ladies there another year. By the way I did the Mesa Falls 1/2, it was my first race ever. It is a beautiful race, with a good hill in there, loved it, especially after the hill was over! You should do it!

Hi there!! This post snuck by me and I wanted to make sure and say hello! You will have to let me know what you think of the Dam Marathon. Your kids are adorable and we are glad to have you join us! Feel free to chime in any time!
