It is but a moment – fleeting – gone in an instant. As I sat on my parents’ deck this morning, waiting for the sun to rise, I realized just how fleeting moments can be. The sun was about to peek out from behind the horizon. It was on the verge of emerging when my […]

We live really far from our family. We haven’t flown with Lil Man yet, but we have driven. It’s a multiple day car ride. Here are a few things that I’ve learned traveling by car with my kid. Snacks: Pack lots of chocolate – for you – not the kids. The less sugar the better when […]

I really don’t have much room to complain about my life as there are others who are dealing with far worse things. So I know that I am blessed. But I do have my share of past and present hurts. Words are said. Actions either happen or don’t happen resulting in hurt feelings, anger, resentment […]

When you had kids did you lose sight of who you were? I did. I was ashamed to admit it, but I felt lost and was clueless as to who I was anymore. Part of that was because I had to give up running while pregnant (pregnancy complications) and then complications after pregnancy kept me […]

I don’t know about you, but there are certain times of the year that my husband just isn’t available to help out as much (especially in the mornings). So it’s not always easy to get in my workouts.  And although I do have a traditional gym membership, sometimes going to the gym just isn’t feasible […]

“If you are constantly looking backward, you can’t see where you are going.” This is something that I keep saying to my 4 year old OVER and OVER and OVER. When he’s running (or playing), he looks over his shoulder to see just how close you are to him. Basically I think he’s looking to […]

Lil Man and I are huge snackers. Hubby not so much, but Lil Man and I can’t leave the house without a ‘snack’ bag. In the past, my snack back usually consisted of ‘orange snack crackers shaped like fish’, pretzels, packaged cookies or ready-made peanut butter or cheese crackers. Basically any thing that was already […]

I am that mom that will ‘count to 3’ in the grocery store. I’ve done time-out in a parking lot. I’ve man-handled my child into the car. I think you get the picture. But this past week, our local amusement park opened for the weekend for a sneak peek into the summer. We had planned […]

I tend to be cautious about sharing my heart about my faith or God. I don’t think twice about telling you how my run went this morning (my lower calf hates me), or Lil Man’s latest antics, or even when Hubby either makes me laugh or cry. But my faith, maybe because it’s just so […]

I said I would never be her — that mom — the one with the kid with the dirty face and crusty nose. That’s never happening. Or the one in Target wrestling her kid back into the grocery cart, or gasp, the one with the child screaming at the top of his lungs. No, I rubbed my […]

People ask me why I blog. Until this last year, I sort of kept it a secret that I was a blogger. I would whisper in a hushed tone that I blog, like it was something to be embarrassed by. I’m not really sure why I felt that way. I guess because I wasn’t and […]

Standing in my living room this morning, sweaty from the treadmill, I looked at my husband with my hand on my belly pudge and said “I need to get rid of this!” He just nodded his head. From past experience he’s learned that no matter what he says it will be wrong. If he says […]

Time! Time! Some days it just seems like there isn’t enough time – not enough time to do the laundry, clean up the enormous pile of toys, do the dishes, workout, spend quality time with Lil Man, run errands and the list goes on and on. I am a planner; therefore I make plans. I […]

Most of us know the 10 commandments (even if we might not be able to recite them), and we know that we should do good and not evil. Thou shalt not kill seems like a pretty easy commandment to follow. But as I was sitting in Church, and the pastor was talking about this and […]

This winter that we are having hasn’t been easy.  And for a runner, wow, it’s been tough. But the reality is, Winter workouts prepare you for Spring and Summer races. So what’s a runner to do? Hibernating isn’t going to get you to your goals. So, just how do you stay motivated during these harsh Winter […]

When trust is broken – it’s not easily repaired. Whether it’s a friend who betrayed your confidence, a spouse/significant other who was unfaithful, or the feeling that you weren’t told the entire truth, broken trust is most often a dagger to the heart.  It can be a pain so piercing that it feels you will […]

I had heard  the saying “Fake it until you make it” most of my life. But I never really understand the meaning until I had my son. From the very moment they laid him in my arms, and I had that little panic of “What do I do now?” I realize that you fake it […]

I was ‘that’ mom – the one that constantly worried if her son was reaching the milestones as he should be – if I was doing everything correctly. I’ve never been one to ooze self-confidence, but when I had my son, well, it’s like I lost all confidence in myself when it came to everything. […]

I walked into my son’s preschool today to find a sign on the door that my child had been exposed to impetigo. Most parents had never heard of it. So of course the first thing people did was pull out their phone to Google.  If you too aren’t familiar with impetigo, here is a useful […]

I’m not going to lie – I’ve hit a wall – of stress that is. Have you ever been there? When you feel like the pressure and the stress is so intense that it actually feels like it’s crushing you? I thought once over the weekend that maybe I was having a panic attack. Emotional doesn’t […]

No, seriously, think before you type. If you wouldn’t say something to someone’s face, then don’t put it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, email or text. I admit that I open up too much online. I have my blog #WillRun4IceCream, and at times I’ve allowed too much personal info to be put out there. But that’s […]

Honestly, I never gave it much thought when I exercised around Lil Man.  When he was younger, I would sneak in workouts whenever I could. And most of the time, he wound up participating somehow in some way. Planks consisted of him sitting on me. He would yell for me to continue lifting him up […]
