Treadmill Review: LifeSpan TR4000i
It has been a while since I have reviewed anything, but I wanted to share my thoughts with you on a new addition to my life. No, not my 3rd child, though he is adorably cute and doing just fine! No, I wanted to share my thoughts (not a technical review) with you on a […]

How to Pace Yourself in Running and Parenting

How to Pace Yourself in Running and Parenting
Running. Parenting. Two very different yet surprisingly similar realms of one’s life (should you happen to do one or the other, or like myself, both). Both take an incredible amount of time, energy, commitment, and above all, love. They can both be immensely rewarding, bringing some of the greatest joys and memories of your life. However, […]

My Crazy Busy Life
Hello hello hello! Did I have you at hello? I sure hope so, because clearly, I didn’t have you with anything I have written recently. I just did a quick look back and I last posted back in February. February! My, oh my! 2017 has been a crazy, busy year for me. I wish I could […]

Road Tested Reviews – Parenting Rules I’m Sick of Hearing
It seems my social media and news feeds are constantly flooded with how I’m parenting wrong, and the judge varies from professional psychologists to rand-o mom blogs. This time I’m being told how to parent by an occupational therapist and I want to address the concerns cited, with the understanding that most of us are […]

The Rundown – The Other Side
It’s fantastic to be on the other side of the holidays! Even though my kids were home for almost three weeks straight, my dog continues to cause ridiculous amounts of stress and a warm day is anything that is a positive number, I’m still grateful to be firmly in January of a new year. Adios […]

My Year of Running 2017
Well, 2017 didn’t turn out exactly how I had imagined when we turned over a year ago! If you would have told me I would be 34 weeks pregnant at this moment, I am not sure I would have believed you…actually, I know I wouldn’t! Or I would have wondered what catastrophic injury took me […]

The Rundown – Hot Mess
Those two words pretty much sum up how I feel after the Thanksgiving holiday — a hot mess. I have a holiday hangover, only a few short weeks to get all the shopping, wrapping, photo card, giving and party planning done and the boys had half days for what seemed like an eternity. It is […]

The Rundown – Off to the Race(s)
Technically I’m only off to one race but just getting to Las Vegas this week will be a series of smaller races to pack, get some freelance jobs finished and spend as much time as possible with the boys before we leave. But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Last week was a great week […]

Best Gifts for Runners: 2017 Holiday Gift Guide
Presents for runners should be pretty easy. We love trying new things, we are usually obsessed with our sport, and can’t really give enough gift ideas for runners, especially Christmas gifts, as it is the one time of year we really feel we deserve a treat, especially if it is cold outside. Last year I […]

The Rundown – My Mind Is Playing Tricks on Me
I can actually see it both ways. I’m playing tricks on my mind as much as it’s messing with me. Lately I’ve hated seeing actual pace numbers in my training log so my coach starting putting in the RPE (rate of perceived exertion) scale instead. If I see the pace 6:11 I find it’s hard […]

Treadmill Etiquette: 5 Rules for Indoor Running
The past month plus has had me running at the gym a lot since I have been getting my miles in before the sun rises. These miles upon miles have given me plenty of time to reflect on a myriad of issues, from running to politics to health to parenting. One thing which I have […]

The Rundown – Happy Pills
  Don’t worry, this is not a post confessing my addiction to opioids (although I don’t think anyone would blame me) it’s more about taking supplements that have changed my training life. I’ve also come to realize that now, more than ever, my daily activity is my dose of happiness and sanity. So, get your […]
