14 in 2014

Since I had my daughter, I’ve learned that finding time to exercise and be fit is not as easy as it was “pre-parenthood.” You would think that revelation would be nearly automatic, but it wasn’t. I would make plans to work out after I was done at the office and then remember that if I did that I would only see my daughter for about an hour before she went to bed. Obviously she is the priority – so the workout would be postponed to another day…or more.

I am not a morning person by nature, though if I have a goal I can get myself up earlier. That is why I’m so excited to be participating in the 14 in 2014 challenge!

The premise is simple to explain but does sound a little daunting – complete 14 races of any distance/type in 2014. Due to previous injuries and current ability level, 5K and 10K are the best choices for me right now. I’m also lucky to live in an area that has a lot of these – especially in the spring and fall, where it seems like there are 1-2 races every weekend!

I’ll be posting a lot about the challenge throughout the next year as I work on training and racing.

Wish me luck!
