Another Newbie

Hey All!
I have stalked this blog for a long time and have loved reading it! I thought I better introduce myself since that seems like the thing to do. I am fairly new to running- at least more of a serious approach to running. I have sporadically ran throughout my life but nothing more than 3 miles. My husband started running last year for a fitness challenge at work and then he got hooked. He ran several races and I wanted to run as well but was pregnant at the time. Now I am not pregnant and I am loving the thrill of running!

I have a 3-year-old son and a 6-month-old daughter. I have run a few 5Ks and then went a little nuts-o and I signed up for the St. George Marathon. I am currently training for that and to keep me motivated, I also signed up for the Provo Freedom 10K and the Hobble Creek 1/2 marathon. I hope I can do it! This blog has been so inspirational to me. You are all SO amazing and I love learning from you all!

Also, you all probably know about this website, but in case any of you don't, this is an awesome website! You can find the dates and web info for most races in Utah.

Welcome! I started running when my kids were about the same age and it has been so great! I wanted to run the Hobble Creek 1/2 but missed it, but I am running the same 10k- maybe we can meet up before! Congrats on making the St. George goal too.

Welcome! And good luck with all your up coming races! Thank you for the link to utah races guide! That is a great informational site, I am from ID and I have been trying to find a 5k for my whole family to do in August! That was a perfect link!

Thanks :)

Hannah told me about this website so I have been doing some stalking myself. I should probably 'come out' so that I can meet all of you and be a part of this great blog. Alicia, I am signed up for the Provo 10K, the Hobble Creek 1/2, and MAYBE the Top of Utah marathon... so we're on the same track. If you and Hannah set up a meeting place maybe I can come find you both! Good luck with all your running!

Hannah and Robyn, I would love to meet you at the races we have in common. How fun!

Suzie- I am also excited to meet you at the St. George marathon. Then I will be eating your dust. :)

Welcome, Alicia! You are doing great! I think we are all a little nut-so, but we are happier because of it, right?

Running is truly my sanity as a mom, and I love knowing others who feel the same.

Robyn, email Sarah or me if you want to be a part of our blog. I think I have actually stalked yours from Jill's before, ha ha!
