I started blogging because I had always wanted to be a writer and finally realized that "Someday" actually needed to have a starting point. And I also wanted to track my training (some what) and running. From my blog title, you can tell that I was primarily a runner when I began the blog. (And I use the term "runner" loosely-- I'm not super fast; I just love to do it.)
Since beginning the blog, I've discovered CrossFit, which I've fallen madly in love with. And according to my husband, my body is composed of lots of fast twitch muscle fibers, which makes me better suited for short bursts of work (lifting) than longer endurance exercise. Anyway, don't be confused by the "Running for One" blog title. (And by the way, the "One" is God-- it's a reminder to me that He is the only audience that matters.)
Right now my goal is to qualify for the CrossFit Regionals in the masters division. THAT would be the #1 reason that I'm excited to be turning 40. I now get to compete in the old lady division. No more 20 year olds kicking my butt with their seemingly unending supply of energy and strength.
