Alyssa is back for more! She made the marathon look easy last time running 6 months post baby so this time around ( 12 months out) should be a total breeze!
Allyssa: Two toddlers and a full time job and this Mommy makes it look easy. Why am I doing this? I’m not sure. I’ve said this is my last marathon*. I signed up because I’m turning 30 this year and I really want to beat my previous time. I ran my last marathon at 6 months postpartum and I know I can beat that time. I love running and as a mom of two, sometimes it’s the only “me” time I get. The camaraderie of the YSBR group also makes the training fun. I started running with the group in 2014 when I was training for my first half. I ran that half at 13 weeks pregnant and that night I decided that I really wanted to do the marathon in 2015. I emailed Kasey a couple months later because I thought I was crazy and she was very encouraging. I never thought I’d run even one marathon and now I am coming back for more!
