Couch to 5k check in


First off- HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all of you mothers out there.  What are you doing today to celebrate YOU?  Some keep it low key and others do not but either way, I want to wish you a heartfelt day that is filled with love, laughter, peacefulness and kindness. MWAH!

Now, for all you new runners who are participating in Couch to 5K, how’s it going?!  I am going to keep this short and sweet because hey- I want to celebrate motherhood with my family  (I’ve earned it after popping out three babies in five years and mothering those precious, crazy, LOUD, funny, *squeeze my heart because I love them so much but they also drive me bat-sh!t crazy* kids of mine).

Tell me how it’s going.  Are you trucking right along, do you need a swift kick in the ass or have you fallen off the running bandwagon?  It doesn’t matter which one it is, we will support you all the way.  Talk to me and I will listen!
