It was 10 years ago, in 2009, that Jared and I ran our first full marathon. I finished in 4:28:33 @ 10:15/mile. It was an impossible dream then, but that’s when qualifying for Boston became a whisper of a goal in my heart as I chiseled away at my finish times. For over 10 years,… Continue reading Boston 2019 Race Recap
With the holidays winding down and only a few days left in 2018, I’m dusting off the keyboard… I always intended to pop in with race recaps and kid updates, because those are so special to me, but blogging fell to the back-burner this year. I’m planning an intentional comeback in 2019, but not before… Continue reading Rundown of 2018
Tomorrow, Liv will be five years old. We’ve already been busy celebrating with cousins (and donuts!), cocoa with marshmallows! for breakfast, cake baking, and decorating, with so much more to come. I’ll be back with her birthday interview, but first, I wanted to republish her birth story, because this might be “her” day, but it’s… Continue reading Liv’s Birth Story

But around the dinner table… Continue reading Leo: 4 months old!
A few weeks ago, I ran the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego half-marathon. I was only nine weeks postpartum at the time, and probably would’ve opted out if it were any other race, but I’ve run this one every year since we moved to San Diego in 2009. I couldn’t break my streak! [*I should… Continue reading #RnRSD Race Recap 2017
Tuesday, March 28th – I was 39 weeks and 5 days pregnant. With my due date looming, I was feeling anxious, impatient, and overwhelmingly excited. Liv was on spring break from school, so we enjoyed a slow morning before I headed to the gym and jogged 3.3 miles on the treadmill, thinking: “I feel so… Continue reading Leo’s Birth Story
