Running a race in Europe 7-miles starting in Italy with a finish in Austria

I’m a middle-aged, business owning, mom (of 2) and wife.  One day several years ago, I woke up to the fact that I’d gained 20 pounds over the past 20 years.  I already knew that I’d fail at dieting, so I decided to attack the pounds by running.  It worked!  And along the way, I discovered that I REALLY love to run, and yes, race.

In addition, we’re a family that is big into traveling.  Owning our own business makes it to a bit tough to find the time to get away, but we like to take a BIG trip once a year.  We also try take smaller trips when possible.  Some of our most memorable trips have been when we’ve gone somewhere, and also run a race .
