Hi I’m Julie. But you can just call me Julie.

You’re probably wondering, who is this Julie and why is she so freaking awesome? Well, I’m a freelance copywriter by day and a blogger by night. Although sometimes I blog during the day and do my freelance writing at night. It really just depends.

I used to consider myself a runner (I even ran a half-marathon back in the day), but now I consider myself an overworked, overstressed, wife and mother of two with no time to exercise.  That was until last week – when I got laid off. And now, it seems like I have nothing but time to run.

So here’s the deal, I’m going to train for another half. And you’re coming along for the ride. Well, not literally. I can’t afford plane tickets for everyone. I’m out of freaking work people! But what I will do is chronicle my adventures in running. Let’s just hope I don’t embarrass myself too much.

Ok, deep breath. I will get back on the running wagon. I will get back on the running wagon. Say it with me people, because I’m going to need all the encouragement I can get.

P.S. Can someone please tell me why sitting on the couch watching netflix is just way, way, way more enticing than going for a run? Because I said so, that’s why.

The show – or the race, in this case – must go on

Looks like the race will still be able to be run as scheduled at the Big Sur International Marathon, which is set for the 1st of May. The heavy rains and storms that have been pounding the California coast in recent weeks loosened the soil to the point where stretches of the earth under the Pacific Coast Highway collapsed this week.

But, the race organizers have alternate routes in mind – check out the full story here and here.
