Anyway, we are, as mentioned, two sisters. She lives in South Carolina, I'm in Indiana, but we're training together for this. We are both also wives and mothers, living our own busy day-to-day lives, striving for balance amongst the chaos. You'll be seeing both of us posting on this blog. I am married to my awesome hubs, Steve, and we have a 6-month old son, Ryder. I couldn't have asked for a better husband, and Ryder, well, he's just flipping awesome.
I guess I'll get down to the nitty gritty of it all. Right now, I'm training for the 15th Annual Indianapolis Half Marathon in October. Why? Honestly, I don't know. I think I was so excited to train for the Disney Princess Half that I decided to jump in and get into a training schedule. I've been a runner for some years now, although I've only done one race, which was the Indy 500 Mini-Marathon, back in 2004. It was not a pleasant experience. Poor training schedule with poor training format made for IT band syndrome in my left knee. I blame it on running the same 1/2 mile loop, in the same direction for the entire duration of my training. And don't ask why I decided to run ultimately 10 miles on the same 1/2 mile loop anyway. But, I digress.
Out of a pure whim, I decided I wanted to train for the Disney Princess Half... I looked up the website and quickly noticed that you can run as part of a team. A TEAM! Immediately, my sister came to mind. Because I'm so
I know this isn't all that interesting right now (its always awkward for me starting these things out), but keep with us and we're sure to get into the blogging groove! So, keep in touch, and enjoy our sisterly chronicles!
