In the beginning

Ann's Running Commentary came about because of my wonderful sister-in-law, Angie Brennan.  I had been writing for a few months, posting what I wrote on other people's blogs or worse, leaving them on files on my computer.  I wanted to share my writing, but I was nervous.  Then one night, as I was cooking dinner with my kids I received a text. 

You have a blog.  It's called Ann's Running Commentary and here's your password. 

Truthfully, I didn't believe anybody would be interested in my writing.  But they were.  The more nervous I became about a particular post, the more people responded. People related. 

Seven years later, I life and this blog have evolved.  I am no longer running due to injury.  I miss it every day but I am learning to cope.  I am biking and learning to love a different endurance sport.

I am also learning to admit that my life is about more than running.  That my writing is about more than running.  

My blog is about life. Life as a former runner, an Ironman, a cyclist and a mom.  Life as a reader, a business owner and an author.  I hope you will find something here that inspires you.  Something that touches you.  Something that makes you say, "That's exactly how I feel."
