Hi! My name is Katy Swanson. Ive been running since my boys could ride a bike & they are now 24 & 22! I run to burn off the crazy as one of my shirts says. I really enjoy it most of the time. Im not fast. Never have been. If you told me 10 years ago I would be running a marathon, I would have laughed at you. Ive done 5ks for years & did several 1/2 marathons a few years ago, but never had the desire to do a marathon. That all changed 4 years ago when our youngest became a Marine & our older one got 3/4 of the way through boot camp but was sent home because of a cyst on the lining of his heart. I got involved with the Facebook groups & learned of MCM. A voice inside my head said if my boys can get through the Crucible, I could run a marathon! So 2 years ago, I ran my first marathon (MCM)! Loved the support & the whole experience! I had every intention of being a one & done gal, but Ive stayed active on the TMP page & while Im coming late to the party this year, I couldnt resist being part of it all again!
