Spending time with my family

I’ve been doing more doing this week instead of writing about what I do. I’ve found a way to fit in a little bit of reading each day and still manage to run and keep the house semi clean. Colton is at a fun age – walking everywhere and getting in to trouble every five minutes. I love when […]

It’s months away but I am already excited, something I try not to do. [get excited about far off things in case they don’t actually happen] Hubby booked a beach house at the Outer Banks of North Carolina!! It will be our 2nd family trip to the Outer Banks and I am REALLY looking forward […]

Treadmill Run 1-21-12

I asked myself this not two hours ago while running my longest long run this year on the treadmill. Ice and freezing temperatures outside meant that I would be doing my first super long run on the treadmill. To say I wasn’t looking forward to it was an understatement. I don’t make excuses so I […]

Chloe and Miles

Being honest is something I take pride in. It gets me in trouble often, but I am not a people pleaser. In fact quite the opposite. I feel like a real friend tells it like it is. That people value honesty. They do to a certain point……. The older I get the more I try […]

I can see the house I grew up in from Chloe's school - it makes me happy!

Yesterday my alarm went off before 6 am – after hitting snooze a couple of times I dragged myself out of bed. Luckily both boys stayed sleeping while I got Chloe dressed, fed and ready for school. After getting Chloe on the bus Miles woke up. I got him dressed, fed and ready for pre-school. […]

Each and every day you can be a victim of your circumstances, get down on yourself, complain, be unhappy, or miserable. You can think you have it harder or worse than everyone else OR you can choose to live life in spite of what is wrong and find the good. YOU make the choice whether […]

Omron Watch 1

I’ll be honest with you and tell you that before I tested out this heart rate monitor/watch I didn’t really run with my heart rate monitor that much. The reason being I hate the chest strap and more often than not the times I am most curious about my heart rate are when I am not […]

One of the many things I hate and love about life is that it can change in an instant. Thursday was just about one of the worst days of my life. Two sicks kids + tired mommy + hubby working late = misery. Friday since hubby had worked so late he decided he could/would take […]

DBLB-MCM-Georgetown-2

I coach myself each training cycle. I am my easiest client because I don’t really have a set in stone training plan. I found early on in running that having a laid out plan before me does not motivate me – in fact it does quite the opposite. I stress the night before about the […]

MCM-mile-16

When hubby asked him how many miles I planned on running this past Saturday morning I looked at him and said 11 of course. 11 miles for the last day in 2011. I was not in the mood to be cold, so I had decided not to race and feel the burn in my lungs […]

It seems I wait all year for Christmas and then it’s over before I know it. The decorations around the house have been put away but I can’t seem to let go of the tree yet. Hubby brought up the boxes this morning so I think that is his hint that it’s time, but I […]
