  1. Keep racing…
    I started racing before my kid and continued with family/career and am now in my 40th year of running and 31st year of triathlon. It does give one some sense of self-esteem, but don’t underestimate the real important job of being a good mom and wife to those who love you. It’s a balance but can be done!

  2. Meredith, congratulations… You are an inspiration. I came across your article by chance while looking for something else!!! And i am always so glad to read inspirational stories of overcoming and achieving what seems like the impossible. I am a Personal Trainer++ and have two children 8 and 5 and they see me out doing my exercise with them in tow whenever possible, so it is now an integral part of their lives. in fact, just yesterday,they both completed their first triathlon and loved it.
    So, if you ever think of wanting to do a marathon or half in a nice, sunny, warm Caribbean Island, let me know!! The girls can also take part in their own Kids Marathon too (mine do since my son turned 3)!!!!!

  3. Great article! I, too, was not an athlete at all until I trained for my first half marathon at 28. Now, as a full-time work outside the house Mom of a 10-mo old, I’m struggling to get back into the running thing. Thanks for showing how you can make it work!
