When I grow up, I want to be me

Here are some things about me: I am tallish. I have short rapidly graying hair and I love it. I have three amazing little kids, two girls and a boy. I am married to an Irishman and I feel very lucky. I am a computer geek with people skills. I love Shakespeare. I am a runner. I love running. I have great friends. I have been told I am a good friend, as well. I love to cook. I love real food. Perhaps a bit too much that last one... I have a soprano singing voice, but you'd never guess ...

My dream job - anything one can do remotely while hanging out on a beach in Baja California. I could be talked into being paid in surfing lessons and fresh orchard avocados. I love my family more than air.

Fitness Minutes: 7,637

My Goals:
I want to be healthier and in better shape at 40 than I was at 20. I want my children to grow up in a healthy and fit family. Also, wouldn't mind shedding some pounds to gain a little speed either...

My Program:
I am in some sort of race training most of the year - a couple of half-marathons each year, sprinkled with miscellaneous shorter distances. I am using the nutrition tracker to keep my food consumption and portions in check and to make sure I am getting enough of what I need.

Personal Information:
I am from far away, but I live here now and it looks like I may stay a while longer. I was a punker as a kid, an alternagirl before there was such a thing in my twenties, and now I have no label other than Mama. Looking forward to again being just me once the kids get bigger... :)

Other Information:
"The good news is there is only one hill. The bad news is - it's eight miles long."

"I don't 'like' food. I 'love' food. If I don't love it, I don't swallow."

Thank you for your encouraging words on my blog today! Running a "real" 5K seems so impossible and your comments are so very much appreciated (and needed)!

Thank you!

Thank you for the blog comment & your insight! I appreciate the input. It's funny that people always want to criticize on something they don't even do themselves. You're right, if they'd get out there and try it then we could compare notes! I bet they'd change their tune! :)

Have a great day!!!
