I've never actually done a blog before so I don't know exactly how to go about this, but bear with me. I'm just going to give you a little insight into my life very quickly and then I'll jump into why we are here in the first place. My name is Yolanda. I am a stay at home mom, with a beautiful family. I have a ten month old baby boy named Manolo, and a boyfriend named Ruben. My hobbies include running, clothing, makeup, and family.
Now I've always had a love hate relationship with running. Running is sometimes like that ex-boyfriend that you always go back to and can never get rid of weird.. Weird analogy I know. But I honestly love running. I've been running since Elementary School. I started Track when I was in the third grade. Not to brag, but I was good so early, not that i'm great now.. I continued running throughout Elementary and stopped for a year when I got to middle school. I changed school my eighth grade year and started up running track again. When we got to high school, I was always planning to play softball. I trained for softball my whole life.. I was supposed to pursue that throughout high school and play in college. Thankfully, I didn't make the team my freshman year. When I didn't make the team, I was done with sports, I was so mad at the school and myself that I had given up. Sophomore year at a different school, I knew no one at all. This guy tried to recruit me to his Cross Country team. He went about it the wrong way, I must add but he got me hooked. I had NO idea what cross country was! All he said was it was running, and I was in. I showed up to that practice, and fell in love with running.. I ran Cross Country and Track my last three years of high school. I didn't run in college, Which I do regret, but everything happens for a reason. After high school I ran on my own a small amount but it was never the same as running with a team. When I moved back, I began helping out my Coach from high school with the Cross Country team, and began Coaching myself for a little while. Until I found out I was pregnant, and had to get my priorities together. I do not regret having my son, but I do wish I would have continued with my fitness. Now it's ten months after I've had Manolo, and I am unbelievably out of shape. And Coach Rojas is now putting some teams together to start running again. And it's like a second chance. Which don't come very often. So now I have the chance to race again, and reach my highest point, and makeup for all the time I wasted. So that is basically where I am at right now in my life.
I'm really familiar with the life of blogging, I've done a couple of Vlogs recently so that's basically the same just in a video form. I've been really getting into the way of social media, and have really been into talking about my life and putting everything out there with people rather than keeping it secret like in a journal or something... Anyway point being.
I'm creating this blog for anyone to really read. Now if it's not your cup of tea, i'd totally understand. But if it is, then you're in the right place. I'd like this to be a place where some of you can relate, hopefully all of you in a way. I am a mom, I do enjoy running, and I do enjoy the fashion and beauty aspect of it all as well. I plan for my blog to be about the fashion of running. Running clothing, Running shoes, running watches, running headbands, and anything running. I will have a little bit of myself every now and then, and even some useful tips!
