A mom. A marathon. A month. Twelve in twelve.

I am just a mom.

I just ran my first marathon last month.

Then I had a crazy run twelve marathons in twelve months.

I am not an elite athlete. Nor am I even built like a runner. But there is something about it. Something about pounding the pavement that makes me feel like a better wife, mother and worker bee. Something about running that gives me a sense of independence and identity.

This is my journey. Training (which I am hoping will be more like maintaining given the frequency of each marathon). Wifing.....not sure that that is a word. Mothering. Working. Marathon running. And writing about it all.

It will be a challenge, but one thing I do know about myself is that challenges bring out my best.
