Here goes nothing…

Ok so I’m really going to do this.  Bare my heart to random people on the internet.  I’ve been reading a ton of running blogs over the past month or so and am blown away by how inspiring they all are, so I decided to start my own.  Not because I’m inspiring in any way but I am INSPIRED and excited to keep track of my goals and hold myself accountable to reach them.  I want to run a marathon in the next 2 years (before I turn 30), and I just came home after finishing my longest run I’ve done in the past 4 years – 8 miles.  It felt amazing! So I figured there’s no better time than now to start this blog.

Don’t worry, my hands aren’t really 3 times the size of my head and my neck only somewhat resembles a giraffe in real life.

Now most of the blogs I have read are by complete ROCKSTARS.  Reading about your times and mileage blow my mind everyday in a good way.  So if you’re looking for one of those unfortunately I am not quite there yet.  But I know I will get there!  For the first time in a long time, I have confidence in my ability to GROW and get better at something if I put my mind to it.  I am starting small, with a 10k next week as part of the Women’s Health Run10Feed10 Challenge in Miami because it is a fun run and I can see how I do in a race setting without any pressure.  After that, I am looking at a half marathon early next year and hope to make the lottery for the NYC marathon in 2013.

Meet Jeff and Jingo, my fiance and our almost 5 year old puppy.  They are the absolute best.

I know that this is my first post and my only time to make a good impression on people so I’m sorry that it’s so random.  There are some major endorphins flowing so I will blame it on that.  I promise to do better next time 🙂
