Hi! My name is Katie. I’m a mom of two busy kids. A full time corporate working mom and wanna be fitness junkie that loves wading her toe in the endurance world!
I’m dusting off the blog because I think it’s time (assuming I can find the time to write), I think I’m figuring out where it fits in life again and what it is that I’m here to share.
For months (maybe even years), I’ve struggled with what it is I’m meant to share and talk about. The reality of it is when I started the blog it was meant to be about me becoming a mom and juggling my passion for running. Then it became something far more focused on running and that’s because I had the time to engage the running community (i.e. going to races, traveling all over the country, meeting amazing people, most of which are still valued friends today).
Lately though, I’ve entered a new phase of life and my running has morphed and I struggled with whether or not I was passionate enough about running to portray myself that way. Fact is, my ability to travel to run is few and far between. Not because I don’t want to but I don’t have the time or interest in leaving my family unless they are bucket list type races.
Then I thought about it more and reminded myself that I’m not committed to anything and that I’m going to just keep sharing life. Don’t be confused though, this isn’t a lifestyle blog. There’s no style too me but it’s about life. My ups and downs, my wins and losses and what life is like right now. Is it exciting and something to be jealous of?? Nope, but I’m hoping you will see that we’re all in this together. Balancing the realities of life with the personal expectations we put on ourselves.
My priorities are my family and then my personal goals. Right or wrong, that’s how it is, and I’ve accepted that.
So come back and stay tuned to this runner, fitness junkie, mom, corporate ladder climber because we’re more alike than you think and that is so comforting!
See you soon!!!!!
