Run with me!

For a while now, the urge to run has been tugging at my heart! I’ve never run before (well at least not on purpose anyway!) so, this is a new adventure for me. All I can see are images of a contestant a few years back on the biggest loser running on the beach and it makes me want to run!
Since I’ve lost weight, my biggest struggle is maintenance. With work, school, mommy and wife duties my body sometimes starts to pay the price. I really cannot afford to gain back any weight (money and health wise).
Right now my husband is a big motivator to me. He is erking with the same desire to get up and get moving. When he moves our whole family moves for some reason. I am going to jump on this opportunity to grab my sneakers and ipod and hit the road with him every  most mornings before heading to work (lets be honest shall we).
I would love to workout when I get home but I have an hour commute each way so to workout and try to eat dinner before 8pm is impossible. It also leaves us little time for family time so I am forging ahead with a.m.
This is a HUGE step for me anyway because let’s just say that I’m not someone you want to meet before mmmm, 8am! I never have been a morning person and I don’t think that will ever change ha!
I have bigger visions for this soon but right now its just me and the hubs hitting the pavement one step at a time! I’ve added a tracker on the side to keep me accountable and motivated (I hope). Click on it if you would like to add one to your blog.
I found some great blogs today about running which have aided in my desire to run on Lets move it mammas! Check them out and you will be inspired too!
