Hey!! I'm Ginger a fun loving 35 year old who married her best friend nearly 16 years ago. My love for running was a complete accident! After one major surgery and gaining 100 lbs after marriage, (I mean what better way to celebrate life than fine dining and second suppers, right?!) I found myself really sick and sick of being sick. A handful of my dearest friends and my spouse had been running 5k's. I found myself yearning to attain such a goal. So I set out on the one mile loop 6 years ago. I cannot tell you how long it took me or how many days of training it took me, but I can tell you what I was wearing the day I completed one mile without stopping. I called my hubby on that cool morning with tears of joy rolling down my cheeks. "I really can do this!" I told him! I heard him smile on the other end of the phone, "well of course you can! " I ran several 5k's, 10k's and this past year we celebrated 15 years of marriage by running 13.1 miles! 100 lbs lighter, and much healthier and happier, this heifer signed up to run her first Marathon. I've got 7.5 weeks to go before running the Indy monumental! Training has been fun, crazy, hard, exhausting, short, long, way long, but attainable and exuberant all along the way. It's no longer about weight loss, but my love for pushing my body beyond what I thought ever possible.
