WOW I can’t believe this is the 40th blogger I have done a spotlight on, madness! I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend. I board the Disney magic today for a week of fun in the sun. Don’t worry, the dogs are being watched at our house, so they are no doubt having a great time. I can’t wait to share photos and pictures with you when I get back! RWS will still be up and running so please come visit. For now, I want to introduce you to http://www.mainleyrunning.com
1.) How/Why did you start blogging?
I started a blog when my family relocated to Maine almost 7 years ago at the urging of a friend as an efficient, convenient way to share pictures and stories of our life here in Maine with those we no longer had the pleasure of being with every day.
Then I met Amy and Jen and we started Mainely Running with a goal of motivating others to get moving ~ at their pace and on their own terms. With Mainely Running we hope to inspire others. We always say ~ If we can do it. You can do it!
Read up on our Revolutionaries and you’ll understand what we mean!
2.) Sum up your blog in a couple sentences:
Mainely Running’s goal is to motivate and inspire others to get moving.We offer a running class through our local YMCA to help folks get started and to keep them moving toward their goals.
3.)What do you wish to accomplish/achieve by blogging?
We hope to encourage others to set fitness related goals and to work toward those goals with support from us and from our Mainely Running community one step at a time.
4.)What is your biggest healthy living accomplishment?
Amy, Jen and I found ourselves looking for new outlets and new challenges after putting our careers on hold or leaving our careers completely in order to be home with our children. The challenges inherent in becoming stay at home moms brought us together initially. The challenge of running a mile, a 5K, a half-marathon and then a marathon kept us together and drew us closer then we could have ever predicted.
I think the three of us would agree that our biggest healthy living accomplishment has been finding balance in our lives and realizing that taking care of ourselves makes us better, stronger, healthier and happier mothers and wives!
