    Nothing Holdin Me Back.

    When I was born I had a couple issues with my legs and their bones. The dr's told my mother that I would never be able to walk right, and that I would always need help. My mom doesnt believe that kind of stuff, she knows if you have hope, faith, and alot of motivation you can do...

    I had surgery in Jan

    after putting up with a hurt foot from doing a 1/2 ironman...now I've decided to put the lack of motivation aside and go back to do the first event I'd ever tried which was a 10k. It's in early Nov so I hope I can get the rust off and build enough of a base to survive!

    I don't really look like it,

    but I love running. Anytime I can get a run in it's a good thing. I especially love when I can run outdoors. It takes my mind off the actual physical act of running, and I love the fresh air. Running is great mental therapy for me.

    That's Not Exactly True.

    I actually hate running.  It's boring.  I love ice cream more than I hate running though, so I do.  I run up to ten miles at a time, usually more like five.  I like to wear a running skirt when I run to make it more interesting.
