Written: Thursday, 9/29 At 13 weeks, Cookie was the size of “Nemo,” and by 14 weeks, has grown into a “Cinderella mouse!” We’re also officially in the second trimester! My little baby bump is getting more obvious, though I’m still disguising it under big, flowy shirts most of the time. How I’m feeling?/What we’re up… Continue reading Cookie: 14 weeks
As many of you know by now, we’re expecting Baby Lurie #2, due March 30th, 2017! It’s hard for me to believe, but that puts me at 20 weeks pregnant — the halfway mark! As for Liv, she asks me every day: “When is it gonna be March?” Big Sister is ready! On Monday, 11/7,… Continue reading Baby Lurie #2 – It’s A…

March was a bummer of a month, so a week ago, I decided to sign up for the All Day 20K, hoping I could race myself out of the funk. I’d planned on going solo, but Liv was up at 5 AM on Sunday. I’m sure Jared would’ve loved to sleep in, but being the… Continue reading Carlsbad 5000: All Day 20K
We just got home from the best weekend in Los Angeles. We celebrated Liv’s third birthday, spectated the Olympic Marathon Trials, celebrated Jared’s and my sixth wedding anniversary (plus Valentine’s Day), and I ran my first Boston Qualifier at the LA Marathon! So so so much awesomeness! Let’s work backwards though, starting with the LA… Continue reading LA Marathon 2016 Race Recap
