About Me January 11, 2008

Working mom, wife, food-lover, ultra-runner(?). This is my life.

I am a runner who has completed two marathons, multiple half-marathons and who is training for an ultra-marathon in September 2014. I am a mom to two awesome kids. I am a full-time analyst who loves numbers and problem solving.  I am a food lover who likes to cook, eat, dine, and talk food.  And lastly, I am married to a chef who is currently a stay-at-home dad.

At times it feels like I am constantly on the go, so to keep my friends and family abreast of our lives, and to give me an outlet at times, I decided to start this blog. Hope you enjoy!

    Erin,
    I was searching around for some sites to aid me in tomorrows marathon (my first). I came across yours and want to say, thanks! I wasn’t sure what to bring until I saw some of your items. They made sense, so I now I have some kind of direction to go to. Good luck on the race and once again, thanks.

    Bob

    Erin,

    I am so proud of you! I’ve been following your blog faithfully. I was with you in spirit on Sunday – so cool of you to run a marathon! Take time to relax now.

    Wow I found another “widow” out there! I am married to an exec chef in LA and I am a Director of Accouting for a public company so I understand the “passing like ships in the night”. It’s tough but it can work, though your friends might not always understand why your husband can’t join you on weekends for get-togethers. They don’t get that he just can’t take off on a Saturday (the busiest day of the week for a restaurant) to go hang out.

    I look forward to reading your blog.

    BTW, I am looking to getting back into running but I have a total mental block on the whole thing right now. Any tips??

    Thanks!

    Hi Sarah! Welcome to my blog, I hope you enjoy it!

    As to the running, just go for a one mile run. Some days I had to tell myself, “You only have to go one mile” and I meant it. More often than not, once I got through that mile, I actually wanted to go for more.

    Enjoy!
