It All Started With A Belief

I often get asked how I started running! It literally started with a belief! A belief that I could do anything I set my mind to!

After having my second child, I was determined to get my body back, so I got myself a Bob double stroller, downloaded the couch to 5k app and started running with the kiddos.  We would sing, look at the scenery, play games, my son would cheer me on and tell me when to run and walk, and we had a blast!

But it wasn't always easy, I've had my ups and downs, I've wanted to quit, but I didn't!

I believed in that dream I had as a little girl of running the Chicago marathon like my dad!

I had no idea that little dream would take me from Chicago to Boston twice and now back. To Chicago in 2017!

You have to BELIEVE in yourself! And if you do, anything is possible!

Meals are Prepped

Back to work = back to prepping lunches and snacks = one happy momma/wife/teacher/coach
This helps me stay on track, be sure I am getting all my containers in and saves me time and money.
This week I have options due to all we cooked while home, but I always have my cut up fruits and veggies!
I have no excuses now!
