Exercise During Pregnancy

Exercise During Pregnancy

I found out I was pregnant as I was walking out the door to run a 10k time trial. After the initial “Holy shit!” moment, the next thought was “What happens now with my training?” Versions of these thoughts cycled through my head as I was running that day. I was registered for the upcoming [...]

The Adventures of THAT Mama

The Adventures of THAT Mama

A few months ago, my husband and I took our two boys, ages three and one, out to dinner. The baby sat in his high chair, laughing and babbling. My older son played the game “what’s missing from the table?” with us to while away the time until his food came (he always hides the [...]
