First Post

This my first post of my first blog and I have a lot to learn. I still have to put the theme of the page together and see how all this works. I thought I would see what it would be like to blog about my experience preparing to run my first 5k race some time this spring or summer.  I’ve wanted to do this for the last few years and I’m just now taking it seriously. I have several friends who have taken up running in recent years and not only do they look great; they seem to be having a lot of fun not to mention the sense of accomplishment when they cross the finish line. My friend Rita started out with 5k’s now she’s running full marathons, which I think is just awesome. I don’t have Facebook, (got rid of that many years ago) so this would be my way of documenting my progress or whatever may come of it. Tammi

I was born and raised in WV. I live in Charleston, WV. I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Charleston and from Marshall University Graduate College with my Master’s Degree. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I have been in the field of mental health and substance abuse for about 26 years. I started running about two years ago by beginning a running program to help me prepare for my first 5k. I had wanted to run a 5k for years but never got around to doing it. Two years ago there was an event that happened which sent me on an emotional rollercoaster; starting this program was a way to get off that rollercoaster. Once I finished that first 5k I got the running bug and haven't stopped running since.
