If you have never run, have always run, or just like to cheer someone along who is chasing a finish line – welcome to our “energy” section of juniper lemons. Here we will discuss all things fitness, health and running! I’m a lover of quiet morning runs, dark late night runs, getting lost on a trail, and running with friends. I did not start running “fun runs” until after my first baby. Ashley talked our mom and me into signing up for Nike Women’s half marathon- and we did.
Since then, I have run 13 half marathons, 2 full marathons, countless 10k/5ks and various other ‘fun runs’. I’m not a PR chaser, but more of a social runner. It wasn’t until recently that I got the itch to see if I could accomplish a goal of mine- to cross the Boston Marathon finish line. I am currently in the middle of training for my next marathon, St George Marathon, and this will be the first time I have followed (loosely) a training program. More on the program to come!
I run for me, as an outlet. It’s my time. I also run to inspire my kiddos. I am hoping to show them that they can aspire to anything they set their minds to and to not quit despite having to put in hard work and maybe failure!
A few of the races shown above:
My upcoming races:
St George Marathon : October 1
California International Marathon : December 4
Happy running everyone- let’s do this!
