Things that are the very first…
So hi! This is my first blog post. If you are reading this, you know this is the beginning of hopefully a very magical and very inspiring journey for me.
My name is Tedi. My husband is Chase. We have 2 dogs, Hurley and Pepper. They are like our kids. We don’t have any kids (hence the name of the blog “running with infertility”), we treat our dogs like our children – though they don’t always listen to us, and always have food on the mind.
I wanted to write a blog that was about me. That sounded vain after I wrote it out… I wanted to write about 2 things that I am passionate about. Running/Exercise and Infertility.
I love running and just started back in 2012 after a friend said she wanted to run a race every month. I of course followed and decided to run a race a month for an entire year. I am SLOW! I am not fast at all and am working on trying to get faster. But I get injured a lot and need to incorporate strength training and more quality runs into my training.
My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for 5 years this month. The problem is not with me, but with him. I try to be open as possible about it, because I believe people NEED to know how widespread infertility is. It really is crazy how many people I personally know or who I have worked with that struggle with this.
I want this blog to be inspiring for those who are struggling and to know they are not alone in the journey. Because I have felt alone for a long time, and realized (for me anyways), that I needed to share the pain and joys I have, not keep them inside.
Since I also love running I want to post about my race experiences and the things I am doing to try and get better and faster. Hopefully this will keep me accountable.
So here goes my journey! 🙂
