First post!

I started running seriously in January 2011.  I started with the goal of running my first half marathon in May of 2011.  I had initially planned to take a break from running after finishing the half marathon but I missed running after just one week.  So I signed up for another half marathon and then I signed up for a full marathon - and I'm just 8 days out (Philadelphia, 11/20).

Why another running blog?  I've made a lot of progress over the past 11 months. I've also learned a lot of stuff that is worth sharing.  Finally, I'm so excited after each of my races and I don't want to lose that.  As time goes by, I think the races will all blend together.  But, each race is different - and all are an accomplishment so I want to document them as they occur (horrible race photos included)!

Welcome to my new running blog.  I have some ambitious goals that I'll share after I finish the Philadelphia Marathon next week (if I think I'm still up for them)!
