Run Like A Mother to get myself inspired to start exercising and getting healthy. I've always been able to lose weight by just cutting down on my eating. Then I hit the big 3-0 and it didn't work anymore. Time to get active and lose the last of this baby weight before short season arrives. I think it's a mom's right to say baby weight, even if the youngest child in the house is almost 3. If we have to carry them for almost a year, then we can blame the weight on them for longer.
I am a slow reader but devoured half of this book in a couple of hours. It's a hysterical read and one that got me itching to run. I should probably state that I am NOT a runner. I am the one who wheezes after the first 1/4 mile, knees ready to give out, sweating like a crazy lady...and that's a good day. I know that my body won't take care of itself though. This book is laugh out loud funny and really hypes you up to get started. I'm in no way planning on running any marathons, but the journey of these two ladies is very interesting. They give pointers from clothes to music, running up hills to running marathons, dealing with spouses and children to running while pregnant. A great read.
Please let these shoes be like magic ruby slippers...ready to bring me home in one piece.
