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."

Thanks for the comment on my page--I was so excited that I was able to run 7 miles yesterday! I am feeling pretty good this week--some minor aches but nothing I can't push through :-)

Just wanted to say thank you for the note on my page. I think your coast is rainier than mine :)

Best of luck to you in your next half marathon -- mine's in a few weeks.

Slainte.

Thanks for the blog comment. I am amazed at people who can run a half marathon! Nice work! Honestly, right now I can't even wrap my head around running 13.2 miles!

Thanks for all of your well wishes and support on my blog. Needless to say a situation like this provides a great deal of clarity as to what truly is important in one's life. I am truly blessed with a great family, a strong church, friends, co-workers and a wonderful support system here on spark that includes you and so many others. With all of you behind me how can I lose?

Keep the faith and kill the virus! (my new mantra-lol)
