Welcome to Katie Born To Run! This first blog post comes after months of saying “I really want to start a blog to record my running experiences”. Well things like work, running, WOD-ing, and life in general always seemed to get in the way. But a couple weeks ago I got a kick in the pants to start– I got accepted to the Boston Bruins Foundation Boston Marathon team for 2013. My first thoughts were 1) HOLY BANANAS I’m actually going to run Boston?!? and 2) I should really start a blog now to track my progress and so family and friends can follow my journey to the ultimate marathon. There were a few more thoughts that followed, but those were the top 2.
To date, I’ve run 2 marathons (with a 3rd coming up this Saturday!), 3 half marathons, 1 10K, and countless 5K’s. This blog will follow my day to day experiences with marathon training, which include running, WOD-ing (CrossFit love), nutrition, and a few life in general accounts. Always note, I’m not a Dr., nutritionist, etc. all accounts are my own opinions or what works for me (or in some instances, what does not!).
SO– Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy following me on the road to Boston 2013!
