13.1 Aquarium Run

This morning I ran the Aquarium Half Marathon and met some pretty amazing moms. Heather (below) is one example. She has three kids ages 5,3, and 1. She started running after her second was born. Her first goal was a MARATHON! She's been running ever since. Heather said that running helps her be a better mom because it relieves stress, helps her be more patient and gives her some time to focus on something for herself. My favorite thing that she said about running is that it makes her remember that she's more than just someone to jump on. Among other benefits, running has helped Heather get into a good rhythm and schedule.
What an amazing mom! Thanks for sharing and setting such a great example Heather!
Check back in the next couple days and learn about a few other moms who completed the half marathon. As always, we'd love to hear your story.
