November 17th, 2012 I ran my very first 5k, I didn't do it quickly but I finished. December 9th, 2012, on a whim, I ran my first half marathon, without any training and finished in 2 hours and 39 minutes. After speaking with a friend who wanted to run 30 half marathons before she turned 30, I decided that THAT was the challenge I was looking for. With my birthday right around the corner in November 2014, I am running 28 half marathons just this year all while raising money for Girls on the Run! I'm a CrossFitting and running mommy of 2 with a loving, supporting husband!
