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!
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)!
