So apparently I have Mommy Thumb. Yes, that’s actually a thing. Just another fun way your body might rebel against you, even after you’ve evicted your baby from your womb.
The medical term is De Quervain tendonitis – inflammation in the tendons that run from the thumb to the wrist. I self diagnosed myself […]
When I started the third trimester of my pregnancy, my doctor gave me a terrifying 10-page packet entitled, “Getting Ready for Labor.” After hiding it under the magazines on our coffee table for a couple days (denial at its finest), I finally clenched my teeth and read it cover to cover and then gave it […]
A couple weeks ago, as Tim and I took turns alternating between shoveling dinner into our mouths and holding/rocking/jostling our wailing month-old daughter, he said, “I think we can safely say that she’s not a ‘dream’ baby, right?”
I burst out laughing. Of course, Isabelle IS our dream baby – in that we dreamed of […]
I had every intention of keeping the blog going once I finished my 2011 project of donating a dollar for every mile I ran to organizations that use running as a tool to help people toward a better life.
But in 2012 my life got really busy – and exciting. Following Tim’s December 2011 […]
Here we are, one week into the new year, and I am just now getting around to my year-end wrap-up post. I guess putting an end to procrastination was not on my list of New Year’s resolutions for 2012.
A lot has happened in the last few weeks. Three weeks ago, we set off for […]
I am finally writing my marathon recap on Friday morning before we go to our second Thanksgiving (at my sister’s and her fiancee’s house; we did Thanksgiving with Tim’s family yesterday). I figure after 26.2 miles, we’ve earned double the indulgence this holiday!
I am officially a marathoner! It was harder than I had imagined […]
I am officially on vacation until Tuesday. My bags are packed, I’m picking Tim up in about an hour and a half from work, and then we’re off to Philly. Race weekend is here! I feel great and ready to run! The weather forecast looks good, and I am so excited!
The 18 weeks of […]
It’s official. I have become one of those runners at whom I used to shake my head in disbelief over the lengths they would go to in their training. I am now one of the crazy ones.
Yesterday marked the end of the build portion of our marathon training plan – our 20-miler. Through […]
We are inside four weeks until the marathon! I am very excited for the race and feeling really happy because I feel so good right now, physically. I should probably knock on wood for saying that. We still have our 20-miler this Saturday to get through. But, I’ve been feeling strong on my runs […]
Guess what? Eighteen weeks is a LONG training plan. The marathon is five weeks from today, and I feel like we’ve been training forever. But, everything is going pretty well. And I think – knock on wood – I’m going to make it to the starting line!
Last Saturday, Tim and I did a 13 […]
