Hey there. I’m Aurora.
This year I’m running 52 half marathons in 52 weeks!
Some people ask me why. Well, I love running. I am not an athlete for sure. I’m just a random girl trying to get in better shape.
I’m slow. I am absolutely not even going to be somewhat close to winning (or placing or even coming in the top 100 (or 500) participants in) any half marathons. I just love crossing that finish.
In 2009, I got sick.
In 2010, I got out of the hospital after a ton of time in and out of there and many surgeries (the final one being open heart surgery).
In 2011, I struggled a lot to get back on my feet.
And in 2012, I’m getting my act together!
(I’m sure this whole story will probably come out as the blog progresses if anyone is curious about it.)
I plan on continuing to have new exciting goals every year…but for now I’m just going to concentrate on this one. My 52 weeks ends on Jan 13, 2013.
There was a time when I couldn’t run that I was jealous of everyone who was running and talking about how awesome it was. I am not here to brag. I am not here to make anyone jealous. I am not in any better shape than anybody, let me tell you! I am here to share my love of running events and my general love of random adventures in life. I mean, we only live once, right? (As far as we know. ) So, what are we gonna do with this life?!
As I said, I’m here to share! So, if you find a post you like, or hate, or you were there at the event, comment on it! Start a conversation with me and anybody reading. (Or email me if you’d rather.) Invite me to a race! Tell me if you’re doing your first one…or your 500th one!
Right now I’m just talking to the big internet and I’m hoping maybe at some point someone reads and talks back to me.
