I really thought that once I started my blog, I’d be writing in it on a regular basis. That hasn’t happened, but it’s not for a lack of topics. I have all sorts of tidbits I want to share, but I’m struggling against an overwhelming work schedule and a million other obligations I pile on myself. At some point, hopefully soon, I’ll be able to prioritize the blog the way I want to.
One obligation that I absolutely love is being a mentor to new runners through Fleet Feet Savannah’s No Boundaries program. We meet three times a week at 6:00 AM. There are four weeks left in the program, and the goal race is the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure here in Savannah. I’m going to have to dust off my pink tutu soon!
I love this program so much because I started with exactly the same program last spring. The 2012 Komen Race for the Cure was my first 5K where I did anything but walk. That was followed by the Savannah Mile, the Tunnels to Towers race, and finally the Savannah Rock n Roll Half Marathon in November of 2012. Year 1 of my running career was pretty amazing. Year 2 is a lot about figuring out what my personal goals are with running, and a big part of my goals center around helping other runners. But it’s good to remember where I started in early 2012. My running habit had a slow start like my blog, so there’s hope for my blog yet!
