Hi! It’s about time that I update this page. A lot has changed since Boston 2016 when I started this blog. I am now a mom to TWO little girls. Life is full of bliss and lots of running fun. I ran through both pregnancies, and now I’m having fun with the postpartum comeback after baby 2. Cadence was born on September 29, 2015 and Callie was recently born on September 2, 2018.
I love to run, and being a mom just makes it all the more rewarding. I’ve been so blessed that Cadence shares my love for running and is quick to hop in the stroller or sing to me while I’m on the treadmill. I can only hope that her little sister will share the same passion.
I am a relatively new runner compared to a lot of competitive runners, and I’ve had fun learning about different training methods and trying out new approaches. I am definitely an endurance girl, but I love to run fast as well. I always love to chat about running and I love a good running book. You’ll be my bff if you share the same passions. 🙂
Switching up terrain keeps running fun for me, but I’ve found that motherhood is more conducive to training on the roads (and treadmill) in this season of life. I ran my first 100 at a year postpartum with Cadence, and I hope to get back to that distance in the next couple of years. My next big goal will be to work on a faster marathon time from 2:57, but for now I am enjoying baby bliss and taking my time coming back postpartum.
My husband is my biggest support and cheerleader, and he makes sure that I have the time that I need for a good run. He has crewed me all over Oregon while wearing a baby, and he’s paced me through the night in Virginia while feeding me Honeystinger chews. True love.
