On Your Mark, Get Set, GO!!!

Wow! And I thought that just picking a name for my blog was stressful I've actually got to write something??

This feels a lot like the first day that I started running...April 13, 2008. It was a Sunday afternoon and I had just realized that I had signed up to run in the Susan G. Komen 5k race in two weeks. So just like that day there will probably be a lot of stopping, falling down, praying, weezing, coughing and then getting back up and trying to finish. But I've come a long way since that first day. In less than a year I have competed in several 5k and 10k races as well as the Charleston Distance Run 15 Miler. I've even recruited my best friend Greg to run with me and we are now in training for our first marathon in May 2009. So, if you've got any advice for me or would just like to say a prayer or give some words of ears are always open.

By the way, I finished that first 2.5 mile run that day...well, maybe more walking and falling down... in just under an hour!! Which is about the same amount of time it just took me to write my first blog.
