Hi! My name is Rebecca. I've been stalking this blog for a few weeks and am happy to join you wonderful mommies. You girls are all so inspiring and motivating! I live in Southern California and am a stay at home mom to 5 great kids - 3 girls and 2 boys ages 6, 5, 4, 2, and 6 months. I love that training for an upcoming race gives me time for myself and a great excuse to "run from responsibility!"
I am pretty new to running. I ran a 10k in 2004 after training like I was going to run a 5k. My time was terrible and I felt awful. Then I ran a 5k in 2005 after not training at all. Again, terrible and awful. Then this year I finally got it right and ran the same 5k (this time I got my husband to run too!) after training for a 5k. Fun, awesome, thrilling and a time I'm proud of! And I'm hooked. I am currently training for my first sprint triathlon. My husband and I are going to swim, bike and run the Lake Las Vegas Triathlon on August 30th. I'm so excited about it! One month before the triathlon my entire family of 7 is going to run a 1k together. Doesn't that sound fun?! After the family run, my husband and I will run the 5k of the same event, assuming we can get someone to watch the kids for 30 minutes. :)
