Hi :) I am a soon to be 1/2 marathon mommy

I'm Staci and I have enjoyed looking at this blog and seeing other energetic mommies out there! I started running 8 months ago and it has been a life changing experience. I am a Mom of two kids, a boy (4) and a girl (2). I started running to keep my body and mind healthy! I run with a group of friends every M,W,F at 5 am and it is so worth it to wake up that early and take time out for yourself, it is a great way to start the day! I have my first race this Saturday May 17th! I am running in the Boise ID Famous Potato 1/2 marathon. I am so excited! It has been a great experience to set the little mile stone markers, 3 miles, 6 mi., 10 mi etc. and be able to watch the progress. I have loved every step of my journey preparing for this 1/2 marathon. Thanks for letting me share a little bit of my story! I look forward to being apart of Marathon Mommies! Happy Running :) Run, Run sweet road runners!
