It's a start...

Well, I've never blogged before...I've been more of a "blog snooper". But, I wanted to create a site where I could document my musings about training for my first marathon. Mind you, I will not cronicle every step I take, just the fun (and not so fun) side of it all. I figure if I don't do it this way, I may not remember! I also wanted a spot to share healthy recipes, training tips, and whatever else I pick up along the way. I've tried the handwritten journal thing, but I usually fall asleep in bed mid-sentance. I thought about posting my thoughts on Facebook, but I didn't want to be accused of monopolizing status space with my trials and tribulations about my running feats.

So which marathon am I running? I have my heart set on the ING NY Marathon. For a number of reasons...I am born and raised a New Yorker, now minus the hideous accent except when I say "DAWTER" (daugher) or "DAWG" (dog). And, the marathon just happens to fall on my 36th birthday this year- November 7th. My application is in the hands of the gods of the lottery system- only 30% will get in. So the back up plan is to run the Baltimore Marathon which is October 16th. My 2nd home and dearest friends are in it is a close 2nd to NYC. I roped my close friend and running buddy Sara into doing either with me.

So here goes...even if I am just writing to myself in won't be anything fancy...i'm just another running diva ;o)

My family-Sam (4), Tyler (6) and my husband Zach (age unknown). This shot is from Zach completing the Detroit 1/2 marathon. Yes, he too is a runner. Not a running diva, but a runner.


  1. Good for you, Kim. Great idea for the blog, and I can already tell you're a natural at the writing style! Can't wait to follow your running exploits (and steal a recipe!).

  2. Well, once again, Jim stole my thunder, so I'll simply say "DITTO"! Looking forward to hearing about your adventures and getting some well-researched training advice. Love, love ~Kara
