I’m more tired today after a fast 14 with Meredith than I was after running my last marathon. Yes I was more sore after running a full 26.2 – but I’m walking around today like a zombie – I might as well have just run a marathon. I’m useless! I think I’d be really sad […]

The other night after a ‘family run’ my husband challenged me to a race (A family run being defined as me running pushing the babies and my husband running beside us listening to his ipod – I’m still not sure if the music is for extra motivation or to drown out my talking??). A dash […]

Stranger Than Fiction – About 10 minutes into this movie my husband fell asleep – he woke up an hour later and asked if it was good – I said without thinking – “it’s strange” Midway through a run the other day I realized that blogging has made running feel like MY life is being […]

Youth is wasted on the young. I’ve heard this before many times but when my grandmother said it to me this morning it really stuck. I have been DEAD tired lately. I don’t know if it’s my body catching up from a year of sleepless nights or if it’s running in the heat in the […]

There would be paths in every town longer than a mile or two. There would be more water fountains. I would plants more trees.

but who you are with that really matters. Today’s run taught me that it really doesn’t matter where you run as long as you have good company on that run! 10 Miles was over before it even began. I could REALLY get used to not running all my long runs alone anymore I was soooooooo […]

I’ve been a little MIA lately from life and writing. I had a good reason though – we were moving! I am happy to say that we have been in our new house for over a week now and for a million and one reasons we are all so happy. The first morning I woke […]
