Ahhh…I have finally found a blog/website that I really like to document our running, our progress, and our lives. So, hopefully I will be more likely to stay up to date with everything!

I have a separate about me page, but since this all started as our journey 2-1/2 years ago, I decided to do a welcome/introduction post as well.

I am Brooke and my husband is Rob! We have been married for 12-1/2 years and been together for 16-1/2 years. Yeah…high school sweethearts! We have been across the country and back, as my Rob is in the military. He just hit his 15 year mark! Boy, time sure does fly by.

Here we are all dressed up and ready to go to a wedding! We don’t have the opportunity to get dressed up very often. We are usually in running clothes, so it was nice to get dressed up.

We have 2 dogs…Duke who is 12 years old and Dasha who is 8 years old.

We also have a kitty named Whiskers, who is 11 years old.

These are our babies…furry babies, but still our babies!

We currently live in Maryland. But, we have also lived in New York (not the city); Las Vegas, Nevada; and Monterey, California. This is actually our second time living in Maryland.

We began running in July 2010 and it has changed our lives and in a good way. We have lost weight, started eating healthy, nutritious food, and have made this a lifestyle change. It is the best thing we have ever done for ourselves!

We completed our first marathon on October 16, 2010. We ran our first half-marathon on May 7, 2011. I ran my second marathon on October 15, 2011. Rob was out with an injury, but he was there to support me, and that was awesome!

Rob will be running his second marathon and I will be running my third on October 13, 2012. We are currently in training mode! It is a lot of hard work and dedication, but in the end it is all totally worth it.

Thanks for reading!
