Benefits of Trail Running for Road Runners

I’ve started to come to terms with the fact that life with an infant is extremely up and down. Last week was great, and while this week wasn’t particularly terrible, it was just so damn hectic. We had so many things going on as a family, and while most of them were really great, it was EXHAUSTING.… Read the rest

Early Runs While Breastfeeding

After a very stressful week, we were #blessed with the wimpiest of ice storms.  Despite how minor the ice, my sons school was closed for two days, and having both kiddos home and trying to work meant pretty much everything that wasn’t essential was cut out of our routine. … Read the rest

4 Month PostPartum Update

This was one of those weeks that feels like a month.  It was probably the roughest week I’ve had since Lila arrived.  Nothing catastrophic happened, but I had a really exhausting experience, and it just drained me.  So when I realized Lila was turning 4 months old this week, I knew I had to mark the occasion. … Read the rest

Earning Your Food

This week was definitely not the most productive I’ve ever had.  My son got sick Monday evening, and then I was blessed with the beginnings of a sinus infection.  Years ago, I probably would have done one of two things.  I probably would have tried to keep working out as much as possible until I was sick enough that I basically couldn’t function. … Read the rest

Day In the Life With a 3 Month Old (Working Mom Edition)

This was my first full week back at work.  Since I’ve returned, every week has included some holiday time, which has been a really nice way to adjust.  However, this was a full week, which was honestly exhausting.  We all survived, and I got in my workouts, but it was definitely a challenge. … Read the rest

Jogging Stroller Set Up

The only reason I have been somewhat able to get back to running consistently is the fact that Lila has been great about hanging out in the jogging stroller.  Over the last couple of months, I feel like we’ve perfected our jogging stroller set-up. … Read the rest

3 Month Postpartum Update

My favorite girl is 3 months old, and I am now 3 months postpartum.  Both of our bodies are changing every day, and it has been a pretty wild ride.  Lila has gone through three developmental leaps, a couple of growth spurts, and is thankfully still a pretty solid sleeper. … Read the rest

First Week Back At Work + Wonder Week Leap 3

This past week was my first week back at work.  Hilariously, I wasn’t able to actually start working until midday Tuesday, because of some HR issues, but I am back to being a working mom.  Honestly, right now I have mixed feelings about this. … Read the rest

Day In The Life With A 2 Month Old

Now that Lila is 2 months old, I feel like we have a somewhat predictable schedule and routine down.  Lila has been a pretty easy baby since, well, birth, so it didn’t take long to figure out a routine that works for she and I. … Read the rest

Two Months PostPartum Update

My baby girl is officially two months old, and I am two months postpartum.  Time has had a way of moving quickly and slowly simultaneously.  I can’t believe how much Lila has grown and changed over the past two months, and I also can’t believe we’ve only had her in our lives for about nine weeks. … Read the rest
