Shalane Flanagan really started seeing success once she publicly announced her “ultimate dream and goal” of winning the Boston Marathon.
Sure, she didn’t win this year. But she did better than she (or any American woman) had ever done before, shaving an incredible 3+ minutes off of her personal best, and finishing in 2:22:02.
When you have a goal, it’s more effective to share it than it is to keep it a secret.
So that’s what I’m doing here.
I’m writing a book!
It’s my ultimate dream and goal.
It’ll be a book about running and motherhood. Especially for new moms who feel like they’ve lost themselves (like I had), and how they can find themselves again through running (like I did).
Something like that. But funnier.
That’s all I know right now. I need time to work on it. To figure it all out.
That’s why I’m going to take a break from this blog.
I was trying to do both (maybe you noticed I was posting more), but the time I should be devoting to the book, I was spending here.
Meantime, I’ll be posting on the Mom vs. Marathon Facebook page.
Okay, gotta run…I mean, write now.
