I feel as if I have been waiting all winter for this week. The week I want to spend every possible moment outside. The weekly temperature high is going to be between 60 – 70 degrees! The sun coming through Chloe’s window this morning, felt like it was telling us it too was excited for warmth!! For the past […]

I got my butt in gear this morning and squeezed in a Jillian Michaels DVD before taking Colton to school. He was more than happy not to have me telling him what to do and I was more than happy to try to get back in the habit of getting my butt kicked by Ms. […]

I happen to LOVE a lot of things…. I also happen to like to ramble as well as share what I like/love. I’m sure my friends are thankful I have a blog now, before 2009 they got a lot of emails. Hey did you see this? Oh this is cool, thought you may like it. Now […]

The last print issue of Fitness Magazine is on stands now and it’s all about running, so if that’s your thing {I’m assuming it is – if you are reading here} then RUN to your local store and grab one! I was pleasantly surprised {read – freaking out} to see that Mile Posts was listed […]

A couple of weeks ago a friend asked me to join her at a R.I.P.P.E.D. class {R.I.P.P.E.D. – stands for Resistance, Interval, Power, Plyometrics, Endurance and Diet}. I had NO idea what I was in for. It was H.A.R.D. My friend assured me that it gets easier the more you go because the routines are […]

It’s been awhile since I have had to log any serious mileage while pushing the running stroller. I knew before starting my run this morning that it was going to be hard no matter the pace. Colton hasn’t been in to running or going to the gym with me lately and for one reason or […]

It’s taking me a little bit to adjust to my new normal. I’ve made some mistakes and I’ve slipped up a couple of times but for the most part I’m on track. One slip up led to a raging headache with in 10 minutes and I vowed to REALLY take to heart that I can’t eat […]

I want to write out a long post right now, not so much for anyone other than myself – but I need coffee – so a long post and all the details is not happening BUT I need to vent. I have emotions I want to process and this is one of the best ways […]

For the past 7 years Chloe and I have been going on stroller runs together. Two weekends ago after a failed attempt at a treadmill long run {9 miles} I hoped off and asked Chloe if she wanted to go outside with me for the rest of my run. We shared 6 miles together – […]

Many moons ago I would set up a training plan for myself and actually follow it. This hasn’t happened in awhile. I train but don’t train. I throw in a tempo here and there – whenever I feel like it. I race when it moves me, and run however far – fast – or slow – […]

I believe there is a magic that happens on race day. If you asked me to hold the pace I can run 26.2 miles in on a long training run, I am not certain I could do it. That’s the magic of race day. I do believe however that the magic only happens if you […]

Two weekends ago I was supposed to run 20 miles on Saturday and race a 5K Sunday. The run didn’t happen on Saturday. I didn’t run when I first woke up and I kept putting it off. Then I came up with a million and one reasons why it was everyone’s fault but my own as to […]
