About Sarah

Here I am with my family on the day of my very first race! 
(Mom, Ultra-Suportive Husband, Dad, and my cousin, Brandy)
 Hi!  Welcome to my blog.  You probably picked up the basics from the title... until recently, I was destined to be zombie food.  In the event of a zombie apocalypse, I would have been one of the first to go, simply because, I couldn't run away from them.

I have never been athletic.  I was a violinist, and so my extracurriculars pretty much revolved around music. Not, of course, that I had any great interest in sports, but whatevs.  I went through a phase in college where I worked out a couple of times a week, but lately, I had been living a virtually sedentary (yet busy) life.

In July 2010, I joined the NC Roadrunners Club Beginner Women's Running Club.  And it, quite literally, changed my life.  Supported by coaches, new and old friends, and my Ultra-Supportive new Husband, I went from being winded after only a minute of running, to my first 5k in September.

Now, I'm obsessed and feel that if zombies came to visit, I could at least give them a sporting chase. 

I'm a newly-wed, so I thought I'd share one of my favorite
 pictures of me with one of my favorite people.
That's not to say that I don't have lots of miles to run, weight to lose, and goals to achieve.  Sharing my running has been one of the best ways to stay honest about it. My family and friends (and quite a few strangers!) have been amazingly supportive, so I'm sure you'll hear about them.
