Wanting to get into shape and lose some weight, I started running 7 years ago….well sort of, it was more like walk a few minutes, run a few minutes, walk a few, run a few……that led to a 5K 3 months after I started and my first half marathon 4 months after that and so began the journey, since then I have run numerous races- 5Ks, 10Ks, 7 miler, half marathons and a marathon and last year I did my first triathlon. Here’s the deal ladies- I never thought I was capable of running a 5K, let alone a half marathon and marathon!!! I’m here to tell you we can do anything we decide we want to do!!!! What I love about Gazelle Girl is that you have the opportunity to start your racing journey, continue your journey or further it while celebrating the accomplishments of women, encouraging us, and making memories!!!!
