Are you all surviving the time change? I used to love the extra hour but having young kids changed all that. I’m hoping we’ll be back to our normal schedule (and lose the overtired grumpiness) soon.
Also, congrats to all the NYC marathon finishers! I watched the live stream and was inspired, as usual. The [...]

First, before I forget, the winner of the BarkTHINS samples is Lisa M- congrats! Email me with your address to get your goodies.
Yesterday I met up with some of the bloggers who are running NYC today. Baby J came along, too! I won’t be there this morning but hope to catch a good [...]

I’ve been meaning to write this post for months. Ever since starting my health coaching practice (nearly two years ago now!) I’ve received emails and questions about pursuing health coaching as a career path, so I want to address the questions and offer a few suggestions to help you decide if it’s for you.

Yesterday began as it usually does, with our 4 year old waking us around 6:20am. I was exhausted from a busy Monday and opted to push off my short run until later in the day. My husband got up with L and I fell back to sleep for another hour. I can’t remember the last [...]

Do you ever spend your whole day in workout gear?
I know I can’t be the only one…
I push the limits of my short window before preschool drop off and am always scrambling around to shower and throw on the first thing I can find. Thank goodness for workout gear that can double as [...]

I have the [...]

First let me say that if you opened this hoping to see a picture of me and my post baby abs you’re going to be disappointed. Ha! (However, I appreciate and admire the women who are brave enough to be that real.)
But I did want to open the discussion about our core [...]

On Sunday I ran my second post-baby 5k. I’m technically in half marathon training now for the Trenton half (just 3 weeks away, eek!) but my long run paces have been struggling and I wanted to throw in another 5k to teach myself to pick up the pace.
I had 14 total on the schedule, [...]

We had an unusually warm September but it’s starting to feel like fall now and I love it!
I tend to overdress on the first cold morning, and then settle into a more appropriate layering. The first 30 or 40 degree morning feels bitter cold!! But by January, those are the warm days.
I asked [...]

Hey everyone! Hope you’re enjoying the weekend.
This morning I’m off for my rematch 5k. I’m looking forward to the chance to push myself again, even if I’m not back in racing shape yet. I found a local race so I can run over and back for my warm up and cool down and I’m [...]
