I am a stay at home mother who loves to run. I have been running off and on since college. I started training for and running races after the birth of my daughter - four years ago. In 2010 I really started tracking mileage and heart rate and performance. I feel like that is the year I became a runner. I decided to run a marathon in one of my favorite US cities - Washington, DC. The race is on March 26. This blog follows my training for that race...and hopefully all the races that will follow! Thanks for reading along!
