Oh, hi! I’m Katie. I lead a mostly happy and very sweaty life.
I’ve run 9 marathons at less than super impressive paces*, and for my 10th, I am really upping the training in the hopes of getting a time I can be proud of! I’ve also started reading a lot of running blogs and feeling bad about myself  finding myself inspired by others. 😉 Anyhow, this is me deciding to try blogging about my life and running! (I’ve been thinking about doing it for quite some time.)
I actually have literally zilch to report running-wise for my maiden blog voyage, since I didn’t run this morning. I am almost exclusively a morning runner at this point in life (I didn’t used to be, but a little over a year ago, I started making myself do it before work and now I can honestly say I feel a little “off” on mornings when I haven’t.) However, every Tuesday night, I take a running class with the New York Road Runners, and I’ve started taking Tuesday mornings off in prep for that. Don’t worry, I’ll regale tomorrow with stories of self-loathing while running something horrible like hill drills when everyone around me seems to be faster and not about to die like yours truly. 😉
Uhhh… I hope I get the hang of this as I do it more, but for now, that’s all she wrote! (Good Lord, I’m a dweeb.) Oh wait. I should also probably mention that this will, by no means, be a healthy living type of blog, ’cause I VERY seldom cook, and I routinely consider a few beers and some random snacks (pretzels, peanut butter eaten out of the jar, cottage cheese) to be a good dinner.  Also, although I was an English major and can be a bit of a grammar snob, I have a penchant for run-on sentences, copious parenthetical statements, and comma overuse. Deal with it. Please? 😉

*I’ll detail my past marathons at some point, some day. ‘Cause I know everyone is dying to hear about them!
