Our Story

 

 

Candice (Mama K): Candice is a seasoned Pediatric Occupational Therapist with a passion for wellness.  Growing up as an athlete, she felt she lost that piece of herself as the demands of being a full time working mom grew.  She began getting into running shorter races and dabbling in triathlons in 2010 and 2011.  Shortly after the birth of her 3rd child in October 2012, Candice realized she needed a way to stay accountable to her fitness goals as her family grew and changed. In March of 2013, Candice and Jane began blogging about their running adventures as a way to journal and to share the joys and trials of working toward big scary goals. Candice has completed 4 sprint triathlons, 1 marathon, 6 half marathons, and loves 10Ks (favorite distance).  Her next big goal is to tackle an Olympic distance triathlon.

Jane (Mama D): Jane traded her career in the environmental and insurance industries several years ago to enjoy being a stay at home mom to her four children.  While enjoying her time at home, the former athlete in her longed for companionship and a competitive outlet.  To her delight, Candice entered her life and encouraged her run her first 5K.   Amazed at the sense of accomplishment and pride she felt, she realized the importance of encouraging other women to get out and run.  Since then, Jane has enjoyed blogging and sharing her fitness adventures with a wonderful group of women that continues to grow.  Jane has completed 2 marathons, 6 half marathons, a bunch of 5Ks and 10Ks, and 1 triathlon.

These are the silly things we like to do together while we train…
