Hi! My name is Betsy and I consider myself to be an everyday warrior.
Although I do not have any experience in “warfare” in the traditional sense, I have certainly had my fair share of battles throughout my life as well as the ones we all face on a daily basis. And even though I am not always successful, I try to approach each day with strength, determination and happiness.
I am a mother to one child. A boy who is 6, who I refer to as B on this blog. He is very opinionated, stubborn and demanding. But he is also very loving, caring and inquisitive. I enjoy seeing the world through his eyes!
I recently moved in with my boyfriend (we are in the Metro Detroit area) Chris and his two kids. Merging our two families together is still a work in progress but we are trying to enjoy the ride!
Speaking of the boyfriend, he is also a blogger! You can follow along with his antics on his blog The Nerf Herder. Chris is a beginning runner and although we are both bloggers and runners that is about where the similarities stop. We are very opposite from each other but that makes our relationship more interesting and I (for the most part) enjoy our differences.
Unlike Chris, I have been a runner on and off since high school. I became more serious about it at the end of 2009. I have completed many different types and lengths of races. Everything from 5k’s to half marathons and even a Tough Mudder!
Mud runs are my current running obsession! What’s not to love about them? Running+Mud+Obstacles = One heck of a great time!
Running is what I do to stay sane and through running I have discovered just how strong I am! If you are not already a runner, I promise you that running will change your life!
Want to know a few random factoids about me? I am a huge country music fan and one of Garth Brooks biggest fans. I also can not get through the day without at least two pieces of chocolate and some ice cream. (Just another reason why I run!)
Now that you know a little about me, let me tell you what this blog is about! It is primarily a health and fitness blog where I share the ups and downs of my training, races and other things that are health and fitness related. However you will also get peeks into other parts of my life because there is way more to me than just running. The one thing you can always count on from me is honesty! I am a real person and I want my blog to be real too.
