I’ll never forget the joy (and relief) I felt when I saw the finish line.
After 6+ months of training, thousands of inner voice pep-talks, “You’ve got this, keep going. You’ve got this, keep going…”, and 13 hilly miles, I was there.
I’d done it.
Crossing that finish line I locked eyes with my mom. She smiled. As a runner herself, she knew what I was feeling.
After all those miles I finally understood what the veteran runners were feeling when they talked about the “runner’s high”.
I had it.
It felt so good.
After having my daughter I craved that feeling again. I wanted to have a workout that made me feel alive. I was desperate to feel like my old self again. I just wanted to get back to the stuff I loved – feeling strong.
So I get it. I get why you want to get back into running. You love it. You love the challenge. You love the energy.
That’s why I want to help you get back into it – safely.
Whether you had your baby 6 weeks ago or 6+ years ago and you want to get back into running, here are 7 steps to help make that happen.
