Welcome, thank you for stopping by…  A little about myself…

I am not a blogger.  I am not a person who tells the world what I am afraid of, at least not usually. I am afraid of many things.  I was afraid of standing in a court room this morning explaining to a judge why I had received my first speeding ticket in seven years.  I am afraid that some random Tuesday my entire world will simply cave in on it’s self, leaving me standing in the rain all alone, a total failure.    I am afraid of not being a good enough wife, mother, stepmother and overall human being.  Most of all today, I am afraid of posting a blog for the world to read that tells everyone that I am afraid.  And, I am afraid of The Rugged Maniac.

And that is why I am going to train for, run and finish the rugged maniac.  Because, after 33 years of life I am tired of making choices based on fear.  And as a brilliant man once said “Courage is not the absence of fear but the triumph over it”

I hope you’ll join me on my journey!
