The idea of writing again has been dancing in my head for months.  When my son was born, I started a blog focusing on the transition into motherhood.  As the years went by, my focus has shifted to becoming my best version of myself, raising my son to be a compassionate, intelligent human, and pushing us to grow by stepping outside of our comfort zones.

My entire life, I’ve struggled with my weight, gaining and losing the same ten pounds over and over.  I’ve tried several times to run, never really getting beyond “okay” at it and never really being able to run more than a block.  This spring, I decided to join a beginning runners group.  This forced me to publicly try something new and meet new people, two of my biggest struggles.  Three months later, I ran my first 5K, meeting my goal time.  Since then, I’ve continued to run and work out.
