Runner’s Profile

a new morning

a new morning


         I started this journey on my 44th birthday.

While I have run off and on for years, in 2014 my love affair became serious and I decided that I should chronicle the journey I am on. It is not just to fitness, although that is certainly a large part of it. I hope that by sharing my trip, I can show others that is is not so hard to start. Or keep going.

I have been exercising in various ways for over 20 years.  But                                                               running…..fits. And I hate cardio. Who knew?

I started running to lose weight, that 10lbs that never leaves. But now when I lose a pound it is incidental. Running fits my competitive nature, and lets me push myself, even though right now I’m just pushing myself out the front door early in the morning.

I primarily run and practice yoga, but as an exercise-aholic, other forms of exercise will find their way into my blog as well. I can’t promise that I won’t occasionally get sidetracked with other going-ons, but my blog will mostly be focused on exercise: why we do it, how we do it, the best way to eat for it.

I have a rather snarky sense of humor, and am addicted to photographing all my running trails. As well as anything else that catches my eye, so expect a lot of photos shuffled in. And, oh yes, I have a horse. She will show up often as well!

    • Thanks! 10k this summer I hope. Maybe a half someday, but it seems unlikely I will ever do a marathon. I don’t really have the desire for it. Still, I would think occasionally running away from the household would be nice! lol


      • I did a half once – but that was pre-kids 🙂 I hope to get back there again someday – but not right now 🙂 Good luck getting to a 10k this summer – I find that a good length. And it doesn’t wipe me out for the whole day!


  1. Um..a…okay…clears throat…Is this on?….I have nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. If you choose to accept, which I hope you will, you need to follow 4 rules. 1. Thank the blogger who nominated you. 2. List the rules and display the award (Not sure how to display the award? Google Very Inspiring Blogger Award, pick one you like, save it/download it to your computer, upload to WordPress. Place in text or image widget or embed in post or both). 3. Share seven facts about yourself. 4. Nominate (15) other amazing blogs and comment on their blog to let them know you nominated them. Good luck in your blogging endeavors.


  2. Sorry I just found your blog and I hate you already! You live in Maine…..aahhh. I am in Sydney Australia but have been in love with Maine most of my life without ever having been there. I have many photos, jigsaws, etc., I think it is one of the most beautiful places. I am originally from New Zealand so I know lots of beautiful places, but there is something special about Maine…lucky you!


  3. Hi Sam
    I am nominating you for a challenge! It is a Five Photo Five Story challenge , Donna from Homemade Naturally invited me to join in “Five Photo’s Five Stories” and today is my fourth day of this challenge.

    Five Photos, Five Stories, like most challenges has a loose set of guidelines:

    1. Post a photo each day for five consecutive days.

    2. Attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph – it is entirely up to you.

    3. At the end of each day, nominate one other blogger to take part.

    Have fun!

    P.S. Two horses is better than one x
