Hello there, and welcome to Running Sunflower!
My name is Shannon and I’m pleased to meet you!
I’m a native of Virginia, but I currently make my home in New Mexico. They call it the Land of Enchantment for a reason — if you’ve never been, come visit!
As you’ve probably surmised from this blog’s title, I’m a runner. I’ve been at it since 1995, and in that time I’ve run 13 marathons and many more shorter-distance races. I hope to continue for many years to come.
I’m also a wife, a full-time mom to two daughters, and a writer (merrily blogging since 2011).
Predictably, the subjects I write about have evolved over the years. At this stage, I’m writing primarily about motherhood/family, running, the intersection thereof, and pretty much anything else that grabs my attention. Could be a good book, or an adventure, or food, or even our redbone coonhound, Ann — she IS a ridiculously cool dog!
I cherish every minute spent on this corner of the Internet, and I greatly appreciate each and every one of you. That said, I publish as time and energy permit. That’s all I can concretely promise for now.
