Welcome to another Fast Five Fit Friday 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!
This week, I’m featuring Jen, who is a mom to two beautiful children and wife to a marathon running husband. When she’s not busy with the family or teaching, you can usually find her running or gardening.
Biggest fitness pet peeve: I hate it when I head to the rail trail, a local paved route that follows the river, and people are smoking. It’s a place for community members to go for fresh air and to exercise, not to inhale someone’s secondhand smoke. Gross!
Fitness goal(s) for 2012: Originally I wanted to make 2012 the year I take on a triathlon, but as the year has progressed, my new goals are:
- take on trail running
- run less 5ks and 10ks
- focus more on ½ marathons and marathons
- decrease my 4:15 marathon time
One fitness discipline I’d love to try would be: trail running. We have a local trail running series that begins in July. I’m going to sign up and try this new approach to running.
Fitness Inspiration/motivation: I am inspired daily by my fit husband. He is the reason why I began running in the first place.
Dream race/event to compete in: After cheering on the husband at the Boston Marathon this past Monday, I am now obsessed with running Boston someday. It’s going to take quite a bit of time and training, but I know I have it in me to BQ and run this amazing race.
