Four miles @ a 9:50 average pace with the boys… it has turned into our Friday morning tradition to do this although I bet the next Friday we are all together there will be a few inches of snow on the trail.

Maybe by next year Knox will want to join me for my long runs and hand me water bottles and gels along the miles while we listen to Michael Jackson.

The late afternoon involved a trip to South Town mall to see the Harry Potter stores/set-up (the three of them were in heaven… we need to go to Harry Potter Land).


Knox did a spell that made the room snow:)


Practicing up on some Quidditch!



Winter is here!

What are three things that you are doing today?

-Running, plastering the backsplash (ehhhh watching Andrew do that) and celebrating THANKSGIVING (we moved it from tomorrow to today)!

A Thursday run with Andrew went down in 52 degree weather which felt perfect (didn’t need the gloves but I like toasty hands so I was happy to have them). Not sure what I was saying in the picture below but the bump is starting to remind me a little bit like a torpedo. While … Continue Reading

My best runs happen when I get to go with Andrew!  We did 5 miles together with one walking break and a 9:21 average pace (not including the walking break). I told you about this on Instagram, but there was a teenage girl that said to me, ‘You Go Girl’ while we were running and … Continue Reading

5 miles @ 9:54 average pace!  I was not sure that I would be still running at this point when I first got pregnant but I am beyond happy that it is still a part of my days.  It sure feels like I’ve still got some more running in me for the next few weeks … Continue Reading

Yesterday was a big day for the kids… it was the Primary Program at our church.  This means that the … Continue Reading
