My Life "To Do" List

Do I have a life outside of Running/Working out?   Of course I do, but in case you don’t believe me…just for fun…here is a list of activities & duties that fill up my typical week

  • 1.        I am a mother of two school aged children.  One is in public school and the other is homeschooled due to his Autism

  • 3.       Due to my husband’s work schedule – your weekend days are not the same in my household.

So, as you can see – my life is a juggling act – just like everyone else to find time to do my runs and workouts.  Sometimes they are VERY early in the AM or sometimes after dark.  Sometimes my runs are family events – where everyone goes and sometimes I am working out alone.

The point is – we all have lives and obligations.  Finding ways to workout can be daunting, but once you get into a groove – you can plan accordingly and work around it.  If all you can do is 15 minutes – then do 15 minutes.  You and your body will be glad you did!

Live and Run Strong,
