The marathon of motherhood + N.E.A.T. activities

Wouldn’t it be nice if we got a ribbon at the end of each day of parenting? Some days are harder than a marathon.

Yesterday was one of those. My husband got up extra early to leave for work, my 5 yo kept us all up from 3-5 am coughing, and baby J was wide [...]

5 Foods you should be eating in the spring

Okay, so it’s not really spring yet, but we can dream, right? We hit 50 degrees this weekend and it felt amazing!

Spring comes sooner in the warmer, southern states but wherever you are spring vegetables have some of the most powerful detoxifying properties to naturally cleanse the liver and clear out the body’s extra [...]

6 weeks to Boston + meal planning

I’ve already complained a few times this week about being sick. I’m not out of the woods yet but I’m definitely feeling better. My training has been laughable lately. I missed a few runs this week but what can you do?

Thankfully, I got my long run in yesterday and am hopeful that I’ll be [...]

March 5 by the 5th Challenge

Hi friends,

What a week to get in the 5k or 5 miles for the challenge! We had two snowstorms this week. The worst one was Wednesday into Thursday, with schools cancelled and another 6+ inches of snow.

I got some miles in this week but didn’t “race” the 5k this time. My sore throat [...]

7 months- baby and mama updates

We hit the seven month mark – over half a year old! Baby J definitely feels closer to one year than to the newborn days. She’s moving and interacting with us and trying so hard to communicate with babbles and squeals. It’s such a sweet age. I’m also linking up with Brittany for Munchkin Meals.

How our bodies adapt to distance running

Hi friends,

After two days mostly in bed or on the couch, I’m happy to be feeling like my old self again. It was partly the cough-sinus-head cold thing going around and probably also partly my body saying enough! I’ve had a packed schedule lately, and still said “yes” to a few extras. Tacking that [...]

We’re in the home stretch now, so I think I can officially start counting down weeks until Boston. Just seven to go!

7 Ways to Exercise When You Don't Feel Like It

My friend Alexis is here today to talk about exercising when we don’t feel like it. Perfect timing, as this was my day yesterday, and it’s more of a struggle now with two kids than it ever was before. Thanks for the great tips, Alexis!

Thanks for having me Laura. Hi everyone, I’m Alexis. [...]

A day in life + WIAW

Spring? Where are you?

Yesterday I woke up to -2 degrees (and I don’t even want to know what the “feel like” temp was!) I bundled up to head out to our (unheated) garage to get my 8 miles in. It’s crazy to me that 8 miles on the treadmill is so doable these days [...]
