Who do You want Waiting at the Finish Line?

Who do You want Waiting at the Finish Line?

I saw the ‘Hey Girl’ sign at Chicago Marathon last year and it brought a HUGE smile to my flu-hazed mind. Not because I have seen Ryan Gosling, but because of girly silliness and the memories of the meme.The Channing Tatum, someone posted on my facebook page and of course, he’s the new “hottie” after Magic Mike. In my alternate reality, If I could have THE person waiting for me at the finish, I’d choose Steve Waugh, ex-Australian Cricket captain and the…

“Healthy Yogurt” – Yay or Nay?

“Healthy Yogurt” – Yay or Nay?

As a mom who is always in a hurry to get the kids to school, to get myself to work and then to add in a round of training/workout, I thought healthy yogurt was the bomb. Especially the organic, low-fat, no added sugar or greek variety. What could be better than a snack that has a reputation for being healthy, comes in a neatly packaged container and is loved by kids? 2 weeks back I ran out of my packaged…

Pinspiration Wednesday – Breathe Through It

Pinspiration Wednesday – Breathe Through It

I’ve been feeling very overwhelmed for the past two weeks. The usual life of a wannabe supermom, working full time and adding in training into the mix (sloooooow training, which doubles the time spent on the activity). The beginning of the week, I made a post about being exhausted and overwhelmed. While a lot of advice was to cut down on things, one of the best from a fellow supermom in training mode was – “Breathe”. I can’t cut down…

Will Run for Cupcakes

Will Run for Cupcakes

This weekend’s run was one last attempt at getting some long miles in before a short taper for Little Rock Marathon.  With 16 miles planned, I was lucky to have 2 running buddies rag-team me for the effort. Unfortunately, a little bit of Math error ended up with me getting in almost 2 extra miles. While the run itself was pleasant, my legs were screaming at me towards the end. When I finished, I could feel my legs shriveling and shrinking! Not…

Regular musings and ramblings on the blog is interrupted to give a HUGE shout out to Ashley !! She is not a stranger to this blog, having been featured last year on her adventures in double-strollerdom. At that time in September, she was thinking about attempting the RnR Seattle Marathon.

What Goes Up Does Not Necessarily Come Down

What Goes Up Does Not Necessarily Come Down

This weekend’s run was mostly a I will be miserable if I have another bad run “I am going to be positive and take it mile by mile” kind of run. After the mishaps with my back (again), and then the sickness (again), I planned to do 16 instead of the 21 on plan. The route was in a very hilly location, but I’ve had good runs everytime we have been there, so I started positively.  I was joined by Michelle,…
