Returning from the wilderness

26 Jul

Well it’s only been two years since i last updated this blog? If i do a post every two years that’s regular in my books ok?

So a HUGE amount has happened in the last two years which may account for my absence. In a short summary…think trashy 80’s film dream sequence….I…

* got pregnant

* had my beautiful little (2.1lbs) boy at 28 weeks

* spent a long, long 14 weeks on two different neonatal units

* started walking

* joined a running club

* ran a lot

* took part in my first half marathon

* enjoyed the good life with my little family

And that basically takes me up until now. I have an amazing family now and the most wonderful 20 month old little boy who makes me laugh, cry and all that’s in-between. But when i can (read:nap time) I run. I run because I now know the importance of my health. I run because I want to be a good (stress free) role model and I run because I love it. I’ve met some wonderful people through my running group and despite the fact that i’m a good 2 minute/mile behind them all they are so encouraging. Oh yeah and I lost a bit of weight! Nice bonus.

So i’m going to give this blogging thing another go. I’ll be writing about running (well dur…), a bit on motherhood, having a premature baby and anything else i can think of. Just don’t expect me to be blogging all the time.

Come along for the ride x
