I am 27 and preparing for my first half-marathon. Which may not sound like a lot, but I figured over the past 12 years I haven't ran more than five miles in one year combined, so yes for me, it's a lot. But it's also more than just the miles. I recently gave birth to a beautiful, sometimes fussy but always adorable, baby girl. Her name is Andie and I cannot imagine life without her. I started running to get in shape four months after she was born. I am hooked. As I thought about preparing for the half-marathon, I decided that it was also an opportunity to do something bigger. (And perhaps to hold myself even more accountable for my own running goals.) I learned about Every Mother Counts recently and decided that this was the perfect cause for this time in my life. I am exciting about my first big run and helping other mothers along the way.
