About this average girl
I’m a 26 year old attorney living in California with my amazing husband and the two best fur-kids a person could ask for.
I’m certainly not a born athlete. In fact I was the girl who found every excuse she could to avoid participating in gym class. But, in college I decided to try yoga. I tried it because I heard it was a great for stress relief. I sort of dabbled in it for a few years and took classes off and on. It wasn’t until I was in law school that I really started focusing on my practice. As I said above, I’m not a born athlete and I’m not naturally flexible. But, even if I have a practice where I wobble on one leg, fall out of a pose, or fall on my butt trying do hold a crow pose, I always have that lovely, skin melting off my body feeling at the end of class after final relaxation – I love that!
About two years ago I started running. I started slowly, built up my distance and began running 5ks. Last fall I ran my first half marathon (me! I ran a half marathon) It was one of the greatest experiences of my life and I look forward to running farther and faster in the future. I’m not the fastest runner and I’m not the best — but, that is the great thing about running, you don’t have to be an elite athlete to line up on that start line with everyone else.
