I am a southern girl who loves the south and everything in it!! I am first, and foremost, a child of God and spend each and every day living my life for him!! My passion is running! I began running the summer of 2005, with encouragement from my cousin who ran cross country in high school. I competed in various 5ks, 10ks, and a half marathon. I burnt myself out on running after my first half marathon and only ran sporadically the next few years.
Flash forward to fall 2008... I rediscovered my love for running and even found a friend to run with! Then, I managed to tear a bunch of ligaments in my left ankle playing soccer last December which left me in a boot and then a cast. It ended up being a total of 4 months with no running or walking. By then, I was bound and determined to start running as soon as I could, and slowly but surely I started building my mileage up. I ran all through the hot, humid summer and competed in a 5k in October and completely surprised myself with my speediness!! I did a few other 5ks, a 4 miler, and a half marathon Dec. 5th, 2009! I am planning on keeping up my mileage base this winter and then running 2 half marathons in the Spring! I have definitely fallen back in love with running and plan to continue running the rest of my life!!
I am also getting married this summer, June 11th, 2010, to my best friend and the love of my life!! We met in High School when I was 17 and have been together ever since!! He finally proposed July 13th, 2009 and of course I said yes! We are having a beach wedding in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida and couldn't be more excited to be husband and wife!!
The other love in my life is my dog, Sadie. She is a beagle and is the cutest thing ever! Definitely a mama's girl! We love to cuddle and go on walks. She is 2 1/2 and has brought so much joy and happiness to my life! I know, I sound like I'm talking about my kid! Haha :)
One last thing, I am a nurse and am currently in school to become a CRNA. For those of you who don't know what that is, it's a nurse anesthetist, or the person who puts you to sleep in the operating room!! School is super tough and I have a long road ahead of me, but it will definitely be worth it!!
Thanks for visiting, please feel free to ask me any questions!!
