Running Buddies.

Another successful attempt to involve my kids in running.  These two accompanied me to their first official trail race today.  It was so fun to see them take in a new experience. Aiden is what I call a reluctant runner; he balks when I suggest a run, but then he returns from his run grinning […]

I can’t want it.

This is what our four year old says. I love it. My husband and I say it now – a lot. Today started out rough. I woke up with the sore throat that is going around the house. I didn’t want to get up and make breakfast and clean and be an adult. This was […]

My running buddy.

I run a lot with my husband.  He’s my most favorite person in the whole wide world. However, I have a very special friend that I love to run with when my Dan isn’t available.  This person came into my life about a year and a half ago, and she makes me a better person. […]
