Jogs & Downward Dogs

The running and yoga adventures of an average girl

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.

    I love this bio! Especially the last part “you don’t have to be an elite athlete to line up on that start line”….or to cross that finish line and feel AMAZING! 🙂
