Hi and thanks for stopping by! I am native St. Louisan (commonly referred to as the STL) who began a weight loss and fitness expedition last year. 30+ pounds down, I rediscovered my inner athlete and the competitive drive that took me through both high school and college athletics. My focus has now turned to training for and running races of increasing distance, although I have no ultimate goal in mind other than running 10 races this year. 2 down, 8 to go. Although I played sports for years, I am very new to the running community and don't yet have all the cool accessories and lingo that I have seen other bloggers use...but I'll get there! My hope is to use this blog as a journal to keep me on the right track and to communicate with other runners out there who are doing the same!
In addition to being a novice runner, I am a lawyer, wife, extreme dog-lover (with two of my own), a die-hard St. Louis Cardinals fan, a Disney fanatic, an Anglophile extraordinaire and a lover of all things Bravo TV related (with the exception of Top Chef...this is firmly in my husband's domain). I like to keep active and involve myself in a variety of local activities, mostly in politics, animal welfare and education related causes.
I look forward to sharing my ups, downs and in-betweens with you!
