Hello fellow runners and hopefully even some recruiters!
It has been far too long! This past winter in WI was quite frankly unbearable and to be honest un-runnable. I must admit that I took to “running” on the Wii rather than weather the elements.
While “racing” my four year old son on the Wii I started to contemplate my next big move in running. It seemed to me that a full marathon was in order. I searched for the “perfect” marathon for months and couldn’t commit (26.2 miles is a bit daunting!). Eventuallly the weather started to get nicer and my enthusiasm got greater. I finally made my decision to register for the Fox Cities Marathon moments after I saw the news for the Boston Marathon bombings. At that moment it seemed appropriate to make my commitment in honor of all the runners, spectators and everyone affected by that horrific incident.
So, here I go! I have new shoes and I am ready to go!
