My Journey to the Nike Women's Marathon!!

As you know I love running. It began as a way for me to lose the weight, now it is my passion. There is nothing better than heading out for a long run, nothing but myself, the music and the open road. I never imagined that my running would lead anywhere other than a healthy lifestyle and tons of running shoes.

On May 4, 2012 I was contacted by Nike Women telling my that my push to get fit hasn't gone unnoticed and that they want to help me reach my goal of running more miles by rewarding me with being able to run the Nike Women's Marathon in San Fran. 

On May 25th, 2012 I had the opportunity to speak with Marie Purvis, the Nike Women Master Training, Lydia and Nicole. We talked about my goals and what I wanted to achieve. I told them:

  • I want to run the marathon in under 4hours 30 minutes, I have since changed this to 4 hours 10 minutes.
  • I no longer wanted to fear hills.
  • I wanted to look like the blonde girl in the Nike Training Club app.
Marie is developing me a training plan to help me reach my goals. What was even more exciting about my phone call with these great ladies was they told me that I am a 2012 Nike Women's Marathon Ambassador!!! It's a dream come true.

I would like you to join me in my journey. I'll be blogging frequently about it, showing you pictures of my new gear, my workout snacks, my failures, my achievements, my doubts, my fears, and my LOVE for Nike and running.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Thanks for joining in my journey.
