Reebok sent me some crazy comfortable shoes…  The SkyScapes.  I have been wearing them all around town and on all of our walks. The SkyScapes are beyond comfortable.  They are super flexible and they fit perfectly to my feet.  They are also machine washable (which is perfect because I tend to spill everything I come in contact with). They come in a ton of fun colors (grey, purple, pink fusion, blue peak and black with pink or white)…  they also […]

Last Saturday we ran 20 miles of our upcoming marathon course. I have done this particular marathon before but somehow I forgot how intense the rolling hills are (kind of like child birth, you forget how painful it was afterwards so that you actually do it again). Just as you are recovering from the previous hill, you have another one to climb. Seeing as I have been running on flat paths for this entire training cycle, it is time to […]

Was it nearly impossible for anyone else this morning to get out of bed to run?  I had the hardest time for some reason getting up this morning and so did Rachelle and Julia but we all agreed at mile 3.5 that we were really happy that we did get up (for those first 3.5 miles I think we were all still cursing the fact that we weren’t still in our warm beds with our eyes closed).   Just a […]

It’s like she turned 4 years old over night.  She is talking non-stop, she understands most of what we are saying and THIS is my favorite stage ever (I know, I keep saying that about every stage but seriously, this is my favorite). The reason that I am obsessed with Sundays.  The morning we actually have time to make a real breakfast. My first round of my chocolate chip, banana and strawberry pancakes: I have the best news.  I saw […]
