Race Report: Horsetooth Half Marathon 2017

When I put the Horsetooth Half Marathon on my calendar, my good friend and running buddy told me not to expect a PR. She’d done the race before and knew the punishing course. Being overconfident and really bad with things like maps and elevation profiles, I dismissed her doubts. After all, I was in a […]

Passover, links, and other April stuff

Happy Passover! The holiday inspired me to write The Four Questions: A Middle Aged Mom’s Retrospective for Mazel Together. (Click over there if you’ve ever sat at the kids table, waiting for Elijah. I know you’ll feel me). I struggled with whether to use the term “middle aged” and decided nothing else would do. I am on a […]

Real moms, real stories

I nearly choked. “What!?” According to Facebook and my blog, apparently I look like I know what I’m doing. The truth is, I’m making everything up as I go along. One of the greatest shocks of my […]

March update

I feel like a March update is easier if I break this down into sections, so… Shopping/Parenting (which don’t go together at all, but roll with it, ok?) Sunday felt like spring. The air was all sunshine, soft breezes and bird songs. Also, we were home, doing nothing because Sweet Pea was sick. Puking, avoiding […]

Random February Stuff

February February has historically been a good month for me.

Name Your Demons

In The Gifts of Imperfection, Brene Brown suggests silencing the voices in your head—the ones trying squelch your greatness—by naming them. I went a step further.  *         *         * I’m old Aggie. You know how in a dream, someone’s someone but they look just like someone else’s cousin or whatever? […]

Coffee Date January 2017

Can we do coffee again? (I don’t know about you but I had a lot of fun last time). Are you on Instagram? I’m on Instagram. We should follow each other if we’re not already following each other. Or we shouldn’t… depends if you want to see all my fitness posts… My plan is for my […]

#WorkoutWednesday: 30 Minute Strength Workout

Ever since Lady Bug was born (she’s now two-and-a-half), my running has been two steps forward, one step back, eg) frustrating to the max. As soon as I get in a good groove, I start increasing mileage, throwing in a workout here and there, jumping into a 5k, and then bam, something throws me off. […]

Race Report: Wobble Gobble 5k

The morning started like any other race morning, with two packets; a square packet of Quaker Instant Oatmeal and a rectangular, tube-like packet of Starbucks Via. Unlike a usual morning, I Instagrammed my breakfast. I spent a moment wondering if I was a loser or a cliche or both because really? Choosing a cool filter […]
