I wasn’t really sure whether to post this one about running a marathon after baby comes along. It sounds a bit humblebraggy, though I don’t want it to read that way. Basically I want to share why I pushed myself to do it, and how I did it, should there be anyone else out there who also wants to set themselves a challenge post parenthood. I also wanted to blog a bit more about actual outdoor activities as well as travel as adventure comes in many forms.
As well as travel planning, my other top thing to do is thinking up cool responsible adventure ideas that I could attempt one day when the kids are older and don’t need me as much. These are a little more deering-do than those on my family adventure ideas list. I’m not sure where this love of adventure came from really. My mother despairs.
