For our third Girls Gone Sporty Ambassador (GGSA) spotlight, I'd like to introduce Natalie! Natalie blogs over at http://www.thismamacanrun.com/. Is there anything more inspirational than running moms? I know how tough it is to stick to a running plan without kids. ... So, to all you running moms, Rock on!
My favorite sport is running. I love to run and get super cranky when I cannot.When I was diagnosed with a stress fracture, I thought my whole world would end.
What is your favorite race distance, and why?
My favorite race distance is currently the half-marathon. 13.1 miles is totally doable and you can easily set PR goals without people thinking you are completely crazy.
How long have you been running?
What advice would you give to readers who have never run a race?
Train smart and listen to your body! Know the difference between injury pain.
What is your favorite race memory?
My favorite race memory so far is when I ran the Historic Half. I was near the finish line and my husband and kids were along the side cheering me on. I was able to high-five them and that is what kept me going.
What are you most thankful for this Holiday Season?
I am most thankful for my family and their health. Without them I wouldn't be the person I am today.
