I’m a wife, mother, Triathlete, Marathon Runner and finished a 50K too.  I am also a Pineapple Clothing Ambassador!   (For 20% off use code  chrcha

We are just your normal (if there is such a thing) family trying to not only make it through the day, but live each day to the fullest.

I was by no means an athletic child never really playing any sports.   When I was in my early 20’s, I spent my share of time in the gym doing step classes, aerobics, and some strength training.   Then when I was getting ready to turn 40, I felt the need to do something.   I was out of shape after having 3 babies.   I told my husband that I wanted to run a 5K.   He suggested that maybe before I do that, I should possibly just get off the couch (in a loving way).   40 came and went and nothing happened.   Finally, when I was turning 43 I declared it was the year of me.   I joined a gym, signed up for a Sprint Triathlon (why start small)  and have been going ever since!

Two weeks after running the New York City Marathon, I had my thyroid removed resulting in my Parathyroid Glands not functioning properly.   It’s a rare complication and extremely rare condition, but I’m nothing if not complicated.   So now I’m working on coming back from being sidelined and all that goes with hypoparathyroidism too.
