In April 2014, I started something new. I started to run. My goal was to participate in the Barley Sheaf 5K again, but to RUN it this time. Thanks to some help from my running buddies, I did it! I kept training and signed up for the Girls on the Run race with some of my students. When I finished that race, I realized that running, which had been very challenging for me and not something I liked very much, was actually fun! It was then that I hatched my plan: I would run 12 races in 12 months and I would log 365 miles (through running, walking, swimming, and biking) in 365 days. I almost always have friends or family with me, which makes my goal all the easier! As of March 3rd, 2015 I have logged 373 total miles and completed all 14 races!
