Why I'm Blogging.

Hi! I'm Sarah. I'm a runner. A slow runner, but a runner just the same.

Frederick Half Marathon- May 2013

I started running a little over three years ago as part of a fitness boot camp at a local Y. At first, it was two minutes on the treadmill. Then five minutes. Then I started running outside. Pretty soon, I was running a few miles, a few times a week.

Then I spectated my first half marathon. I was so inspired by the runners and so jealous that I wasn't out there running with them- I signed up for my first race, the Bel Air Town Run 2011, while sitting on the sidelines of that half marathon.

Since then, I've ran five half marathons and am training for my first 26.2- the Walt Disney Marathon in January 2014 (I'm actually running the Dopey Challenge, but that's an entire post by itself!). But before I get there, I've got a few more races to run, medals to collect, and a whole lot of training!

I'll be using this blog to document my training, review races, and share stories from the run (the good, the bad, and the ugly). I look forward to sharing this journey with you :-)
