Preggo Race Recap: X-Country Marathon Part I

before the half two weeks before the full Woah, this race recap is late! Life has been so full lately- busy in a really good way- that every day I think I’ll have time to write the recap but head to bed every night and it’s still on my to-do list! So November 17th Clara and I ran the X-Country Marathon ....more

Race Recap: Xterra Wildhorse Trail Half Marathon

Yesterday I finished the Xterra Wildhorse Trail Half Marathon put on by Tampa Races who I do most of my runs with. I had a blast, even though the race was not what you’d expect from a typical trail run.

Raising a Beautiful Daughter

My Fetus Loves CrossFit

I think part of me has procrastinated so much on getting this post out because I was scared of judgement. I know I’m pushing limits and defying a lot of the info out there on what I “should” be doing and I didn’t know if I was ready (or could handle) comments that in any way said I wasn’t doing the best for my baby. There are too many unknowns in pregnancy already to have comments add worry ....more

A New Life

Forget living like you’re dying- live like you’re having a baby! I may complain about constipation and admit that I don’t feel connected to my baby yet, but the truth is that pregnancy has already changed my life in more positive ways than anything else. “The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt Slowing Down I love being around kids because they bring you back to the basics of life: they play in the rain, laugh a lot and don’t sweat the small stuff (unless they’re toddlers) ....more
