In 2009, I turned 40 and decided to start running. Not at the same time, but when I decided to start blogging about it, it seemed apropos to talk about my life at midlife since the urge to run is probably my version of a midlife crisis. More importantly, however, I wanted this blog to be about much more than running. So here I am, running, blogging, momming, wife-ing, and living my life. Hope you enjoy following along!

Run for the Zoo
The Run for the Zoo was monumental for two reasons: 1. A personal worst on time (blame it on missing 2+ weeks of training to a nasty stomach virus), and 2. Alex ran his first race, participating in the Zebra Zip. Last night, he wasn't so sure that he wanted to run, but today he was really into it. He toed the line patiently among all the chaos of racing with the 3 and under boys group. He had a blast running and even got a medal. His only complaint was that it was too short!

With his medal. (He got a race medal before I did!)
