Making it Work

(Tim Gunn Style) First – thank you for making me feel so loved on my last post. Unfortunately my blog has apparently decided to stop emailing me when people comment, so between that and just not being in the habit of checking this space on a regular basis, I actually had no idea people said anything for a long time. I’m sorry…I don’t know how to fix the issue, but I’m working on it ....more

Starting Again

Hi. Remember me? It’s been awhile ....more

CHaD Hero Half Marathon Race Recap

I have been terrible about race recaps. Unfortunate, since those are the most fun to write (and read!). And since this is supposed to be a running blog, you’d think I’d be jumping at the opportunity for “content.” Although my erratic blogging is a topic for another day, I suppose it’s...more

Race Week! Let’s Talk “Goals”

Cigna 5K Race Recap

I only knew how old LBC felt about training ....more

Day in the Life (of a Working Mom)

A couple of notes: Talk of this post actually started as kind of a joke with a friend, after seeing a bunch of day in the life post from other bloggers with children. I always love reading them, and now that I have a vested interest I’m super nosy curious about other baby’s schedules, how parents fit in physical activity, etc. However, most of the posts that I’ve seen are written by parents who stay home ....more

Run With Swagger

I have a bit of a problem. The image of the runner I am in my head doesn’t exactly match up with reality. Yeah, I know ....more
