Hi! My name is Mary Beth, my friends call me MB. I am a married, Mom, over 40 finance professional in the Health Care Industry. So let’s talk about running. Running? Why am I running? Is someone chasing me? You would think so! I will be the first to tell you that I had a 101 reasons why I could not run. I am not built for this. My boobs are to big! My uterus may fall out! Yup, my husband heard them all. At the end of the day, I can honestly say the fear of being left behind made me invest in the sports bra, dust off the tennies and get out there!
I have a great group of girl friends and when I suggested that we train for the 2012 Princess 1/2 at Disney I could not start planning fast enough. Remember, my goal was just to walk the thing, which I did. My best friend Kitty (the ballet teacher) shipped us the tutus, I had the flashy tennies and the new hairband- I was ready! I finished that race about 2 minutes ahead of those timekeeping fairies and my life has never been the same! I set out on January 1, 2013 with the goal to run 1 5K per month and finish it in under 35 minutes. I posted it on Facebook for the world to see. I am happy to report, that was just the start!
I want to run around this big world and share all the fabulous places, products, fashion and people I meet with you. So please pull up your tutu, lace up those tennies and join me! I hope to inspire you along the way, it is never to late to start your fitness journey!
