I'm a 30 year old mother of 2 young boys who keep me pretty busy! After my youngest was born, I was at my heaviest, I made it my goal to get healthy and lose a few pounds, for myself, and for them. Getting active has been hard being a busy family, but I'm working harder to set time aside for myself. Even if it's a short mall walk while the oldest is at school.
We lost our husky, Jack, and my running buddy, a while back. I was really missing my boy, and I hadn't walked outdoors since, both due to the cold, and feeling lost without my buddy. The treadmill has been my friend the last few months. We recently decided it was time to get a new puppy. The day after we brought her home, it was very nice outside, especially for January in the Midwest. I used this run as my inaugural walk with our new puppy, Rhonni. My first outdoor walk in months. It will be a special memory that I will always have with her, since Jack used to compete in my virutal events (and some live events!) with me.
