Fast Five Fit Friday

Welcome to another week of Fast Five Fit Fridays on Fit Mom! In it, you’ll be introduced to some awesome Health and Fitness bloggers in the community and find out a few little tidbits about what makes them unique, what they like (or don’t like) about the fitness world and a few little quirks that set them apart from everyone else!

Today’s awesome fit blogger is Jessica Morrison, a 34 year old mother of two boys who runs to stay in shape and maintain by sanity (I can sooooo relate to the sanity part!).

My pre-race rituals: I always have the same breakfast: coffee and a bagel with cream cheese. I am also obsessively early, so I get to the race an hour before start time.
Fitness goal(s) for 2012: a 1:40 half marathon and a 5k in the 20:00-21:00 range.
Biggest fitness brag to date: This year I dropped 4 minutes off my 5K time (first return to running after the birth of my second son).
 Biggest surprise about living a healthy lifestyle: How much it makes a difference in my mental heath. Running makes me a better wife, mother, and friend.
 Fitness Inspiration/motivation: A couple of months ago, I profiled a 32 year old mother runner Wendy Thomas. She just started running seriously a couple of years ago and ran a 2:34 marathon in the U.S. Olympic Trials (12th place)!

  1. I’m really early race morning too! WOW your 5km is FAST! and 4 min off! That’s amazing, there isn’t far to go in a 5km to make up time so I find it a challenging one to shave time off…you have to really push it :) I just had my PR for 5km 25min 11sec. So I am really amazed at yours :) I think I would pass the puke threshold lol.
