New direction

This is going to be my attempt at a Healthy Living Blog. I am constantly talking about running on Facebook so why not just talk about it on my blog instead!? This is more so for me as a way to keep track of my progress but if you are reading this... Hello and thank you for stopping by! =]

So I have dabbled with the idea of becoming a runner for a long time now but never stuck to it more than a couple months. That changed in January after receiving a gym membership for Christmas from my awesome hubbie (I asked for it in case you are wondering lol!). I made the decision that I was going to become a runner once and for all! I was sick of just talking and dreaming about it. So I downloaded the Couch 2 5k app on my phone and gradually worked my way up to being able to run 3 miles without walking. I haven’t stopped running since then. I am now at 583 miles for the year (thank you RunKeeper). My goal is to do 1,000 miles for 2011. I also have a goal of running a 10 miler in September. I have only done two 5k's so this is a lofty goal for me. Another big reason I decided to start running is because I am so uncoordinated and un-athletic (not sure that’s a word but go with it) so I figured anyone could run right!? Well I have definitely become addicted and am in love with it! I’m pretty stoked to have a place to be open and honest about that love! Hopefully I enjoy it as much as I enjoy reading other people’s Healthy Living Blogs. My absolute favorite ones are,, and Those three women have really inspired me to actually do this!! My other favs can be found under Blogs I Read.

Well that's it for now! I will leave you with a gorgeous picture of my hubbie and I =P. Have a great Monday!!

In the middle of a long (for me) run on Saturday morning we came across a beautiful waterfall! As you can tell I am not the best photographer (and this was after several tries!) but trust me it was pretty! Excuse the lobster face and the sweat, it comes with the territory!
