I just bought myself a new pair of Reebok capris for training and the race. I ordered them online and ripped open the bag when they arrived today. I looked at them, oh yikes. Maybe I should have order an XL instead of a L? I looked at them ag... Read more

I loved this photo today. Some days I feel like a turtle, but that's ok. I used to be intimidated by some activities because I knew I wouldn't keep up to others, I let my own insecurities keep me from even trying. Back in February when my hus... Read more

This morning I woke up, opened one eye and groaned as I saw the clock had the nerve to announce brightly that it was 5AM. I rolled over and attempted to go back to sleep which only prompted my husband. "Aren't you going to get up?" ... Read more

This morning I started out with a 5K run with my daughter, the twins, and her in-laws. I got a chuckle of the group of us, all at different levels, all working together with the same goal, ran along the road, each grand parent taking turns to ru... Read more
