I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

First 'race' of the season

I'm running in a 10km race this weekend. I say race because I am WAY too competitive to take it easy and 'just complete' . As much as I know there is no hope of winning this thing, I NEED to get within 50-55 mins to feel satisfied.

Just being real here.

So...pray that I don't blow out my knee. Last race I entered I did just that and was off running for 8months!!!!!

O.K, maybe if I remind myself of that I'll take it easy.

Have a good race!! Remember your end goal, which is your marathon! Take it easy, but I am sure the race pace will be great due to all of the excitement! Always gets me going!

Have fun! Enjoy and RUN!!!
