I started this blog in 2010, when I was falling in love with running. As months and miles passed, I was getting pretty serious, and I was excited to be making strides in my fitness. In late 2011 and early 2012, I faced a couple of completely-unrelated-to-running injuries (here and here) and never quite made it back on my feet.
And then I met my non-running husband and got married.
And then I got bit by Carl.
And then I got pregnant and gave birth to the world's most beautiful baby girl.
Finally, over a year later, I feel like my body is finally ready to be pushed again. So I'm reviving the blog and my running life, after taking almost two years off. Ultimately I'd like to find my limit as a runner.
