I was not always a runner. In fact I use to hate it!! To be honest I hated all types of exercise. I remember having to run around the track field in high school thinking that it was pure torture. I would have never imagined that one day I would actually run distance and enjoy it!! But then I had kids and things did not look like they once did!! If you are a mom you know exactly what I am talking about!! I also had friends that were running half marathons and my competitive nature told me that I also had to run a half marathon, just so I could say that I did one!! ( Yes, I am that type of person, sometimes to competitive.)
I only started running after I had my last son and I was not a dedicated runner at first. Its hard to run when you have small kids. It has taken me awhile to get to a point that I actually enjoy running, and there are still days I wonder why I put myself through it. But I have come to a point in my life that I realize how important it is to exercise and I want my kids to grow up seeing their parents healthy!! Trust me there are days where I would much rather lay on the couch and some-days the couch does win !! I have found that if I have a race that I am training for, that I will get outside and run. I need something to motivate me or I do not exercise. I ran my first half marathon 3 years ago and since then I have done 5!! I want to run a marathon at some point, but I can not commit to the training schedule at this point in my life. Right now I am training for my first ragner relayand I am very excited about!! I have also heard that they are as addicting as half marathons so we will see!!
I also love to live in my workout clothes. Its quick and easy to throw on. I would wear it all the time if I could!! Below I am linking some of my favorite work out clothing and some that is on my wish list. I am a Nike fan at heart when it comes to sneakers, but I know there are many other great brands out there!!
