Running Mamma

I have had a love/hate relationship with running most of my life.  Growing up I played soccer which required a great deal of running, but it seemed like there was a purpose.  In high school I even ran Winter track for a year - bad idea!  I was slow.

In March 2008 Nick decided to start running and I decided it would be fun to try it myself.

This is Dad, Jack and I after my first ever 5k race in June 2008.

This is Nick, Dad and myself after a race in July 2009.  Nick did a 10k!!  Dad and I walked 2 miles.  I was 5 weeks pregnant and afraid to raise my heart rate.

We all ran a 5k in September 2009.  Cali did fine in the stroller and even had a nice nap.

Cali, Dad and I after a 5k in April 2010.  It was dad's first race since his cancer surgery.

I ran my first 10K in May 2013.  I even got 2nd for my age group!  Super exciting!
