About Christy

I’m a mid-40s Mom, wife, and business owner.  Something strange happened to me over the past few years.  I became addicted to running. It started out innocently enough.  A few miles here and there on the dreadmill and the local Y.  Then, a good friend encouraged me to sign up for a race.  Who me?  Why would I do that?  I’m not a real runner.  This good friend of mine said she would sign up for a race with me.  She got injured I was too proud to back out, and as they say, the rest is history. I now consider myself a runner and have completed 12 official races.  I’ve done 5ks, 10ks, and 2 half marathons.  Enter into my life, Kristi G – she’s the one bloggin’ with me.  You can read all about how we came to be in “About Us.”  Next thing you know, I’m signing up to run a Marathon.  Who me?  I’m not a real runner.  Apparently, I cannot deny it any longer.  I am a runner who is training for her first Marathon and dabbling in swimming and biking.  Yikes, might there be a tri in my future?  Who knows.  What I do know is that I’m having the time of my life, running my legs all over my hometown, learning about myself and training for my FIRST EVER MARATHON!
