The Longest 5k

This past Saturday my family and I ran/walked the Superhero Foundation’s local 5k race.  Thankfull, it was an absolutely gorgeous day.  Since all six of us were in the race, we asked my in-laws to come watch.  The big kids (10, 6, and newly 5) were all very excited to participate and we wanted to […]

I really want to wear a running skirt.  Honestly, I hate that I have to wear tights to keep from getting inner thigh chafe.  It’s not the feel of tight shorts/pants that bothers me, it’s the look.  I hate that everyone can see my butt, thigh, crotch, well, every bit of me.  So, I’ve bought […]

Lucy in the Sky

Now that I have your attention, I’ll warn you that my post has nothing to do with that song, other than I played it for the kids at dinner and now it’s going to be stuck in my head….FOREVER! I also have to confess, my eating hasn’t gone so well these past few days.  I […]
