It's the first day of school for my kids and I finally get a chance to sit down and write my first post!! Let me tell you a little about myself, my name is Courtney and I have been married to my husband Jim for 12 years now, man they have flown by. I have 3 wonderful children, one starting middle school today and the other 2 still in elementary. They are growing up so fast!
I started running in 2004 to lose weight and I fell in love with it!! Soon after I started, my husband joined in! We have ran almost all our big races together (even tho he is much faster!). He is my biggest cheerleader out there and I don't know what I would do without him! Over the years we have ran 9 half marathons and 1 full together, I also did a full by myself with some girlfriends. We are now exploring triathlons, I did my first one last September and we did one together this past June. We are training for another one this September. My plan for this year was for us to do a Half Ironman in Augusta but things changed when I randomly got picked for the ING NYC Marathon!!! That changed everything! So, I am preparing for a full this November. I am struggling because I have always had someone to run with me to mentally get thru it and this one I will have to do on my own. I know I can do it!! It's just pushing thru it alone will be hard!
How did you get started with your blog?
Do you prefer to run your races by yourself or with someone?
