It's really hard to believe that March is already here! Even though February had an extra day this year it seemed like it flew by! We've been pretty lucky with weather so far this year in Pittsburgh compared to the past two years, it's been a very mild winter and I've only had to take my running indoors once because of the cold temperatures. I am very happy about that!
I've also been trying to take writing more seriously and transition myself from blogger to an author. I must admit that it hasn't been the easiest transition and I've certainly made plenty of mistakes along the way. But I'm learning and growing as I carve out my own path. Two weeks ago I was fortunate to be featured on Dan Buri's website Nothing Any Good. Dan has developed a website to help other indie authors and I was very excited to have my article featured! I've been finding a lot of helpful tips from his website. If you are an indie author I highly suggest that you check it out!
Looking ahead, half marathon training will soon be getting into full swing. It's kind of hard to believe, but this year's Pittsburgh Half Marathon will be my 10th half marathon! I have also decided to run a as charity runner for the American Heart Association. I have already reached my fundraising goal but would like to continue to raise as much money as possible! You can still donate if you would like!
If you are also training for a race, I hope that you are enjoying the process, no matter what the distance you are planning to run. Remember, if you get overwhelmed break your training into smaller portions and tackle those smaller goals instead of looking at the goal in it's entirety. Sometimes looking at the big picture can feel overwhelming. Achieving one large goal is really the process of just achieving many smaller goals that add up to one big accomplishment!

I like to run, take pictures and write. I've combined all three in this blog.
