|First stroller run of 2014|
First things first, I will be continuing my tradition of running the Shamrock Shuffle. I've run this race every year since 2006, even when I was pregnant last year! My time goal is not something that I'm focusing on--instead I have my eyes on the post-baby PDR I will be setting. If you haven't run this race yet, have you been living under a rock?? Just kidding, kind of. I highly recommend it and I'm not alone!

I also have a few other races on the horizon. I'm ecstatic to announce that I am a Zooma Ambassador for the 2014 Chicago event! I had an absolute blast participating in the Great Lakes event back in 2012 (full recap here) where I spent the weekend with bloggers, carbs, wine, chocolate, and cheese. You know, all of the essentials! I'm sure there will be more great details to follow on how you can join me out on the lakefront for this fun event!

Last year I was asked if I would like to participate in a Spartan event. Since I was pregnant at the time, I didn't feel it was a great idea for our little nugget. I was debating whether or not I should take the plunge this year, hearing how difficult and intense the race can be. I've decided to suck it up, stop being afraid, and go for it! I'll be joined by my friend (weight lifting buddy, crossfit rockstar, and great gal pal) Kate, who has made some previous appearances on the blog. She's going to help me train and get ready for this event.

I'm still determining the rest of my 2014 race calendar, but I think I have some really fun events on the horizon. I hope you stick around for the journey!
