For a long time, I had babies on the brain. I was either pregnant or nursing (sometimes both) for nine amazing years! I kept up my fitness during that time with long walks with a baby in a sling, a jogger or a backpack carrier, and bike rides with a baby seat on the back. Now that my youngest is four (sob, how did that happen, time flies etc. etc.), I’ve kicked it up a notch.
Instead of babies on the brain, I have marathon on my mind. The thing is, though, I have far fewer friends who want to swap running tips than wanted to commiserate over diaper duty and sleepless nights. Even my husband tires of me talking about how much I love the cycle/sculpt class at the Y. How much? THIS MUCH! (In all fairness to my husband, he listens very patiently but only barely suppresses his here-she-goes-again laugh. It’s not easy being the spouse of a triathlete).
Enter: this blog. Here I can ramble on to my heart’s content about running, biking, swimming, fitness and nutrition. Even better, I can hear from others who share the same passion! Hit me with what’s on your mind!
P.S. The title of this post is a not-so-subtle homage to Haruki Murakami and his fantastic memoir What I Talk About When I Talk About Running.
Do you have a race coming up? Does it consume not only your training time but also your mind space? Leave a comment and share your passion!
