Pre-Pregnancy Jeans: Are we there yet???

I have a favorite pair of jeans. I can’t remember when I bought them but I LOVE them. When Ashton was a few weeks old I tried them on, hoping for the best. Let’s just say it didn’t work out. A month later I tried to put them on again. This attempt was also unsuccessful. The last few days I’ve

My sister sent me this onesie when I was pregnant with Ashton… Should I take a hint? Ha!! Actually, I love it and the message is VERY fitting! πŸ™‚

Swimmer Mom?

Very funny! No, I am definitely NOT what you would call a swimmer. The correct description of me would be someone impersonating a swimmer who desperately needs swimming lessons! Yesterday was officially 2 weeks from when the doctor told me I could go swimming. So, following doctors orders, I decided to go for a swim! Fortunately, I have free access

I have never heard of a 4K race but this morning my husband and daughter ran in one. The Harding University women’s basketball team hosted a 4K this morning to raise money for a former team member, Kendra Bailey who is battling cancer. To me, one of the best parts about participating in a race is having the opportunity to

The 115th Boston Marathon was today!! While I didn’t even run one mile, I felt as if I were there in spirit. Three of my close running training buddies were there and I tracked their race online. Very cool. I have never been on this side of tracking a runner and I must say that it is pretty exciting. I

What’s Next?!
What’s Next?!

Well, we know what’s NOT next… Sadly, I will not be in Beantown this weekend. BUT, I know I will do it when the time is right. As every runner knows- when you finish one big race (or have an injury) you need ANOTHER big race goal. If I didn’t have my running goals I would probably lose my mind!

Well, after several rough days in a row- yesterday was MUCH better!! My doctor’s appointment went very well! Yes, I do have a stress fracture on my sacrum BUT my doctor seems very confident that I will make a full recovery and will be running and racing again in just a few months. YEAH!! Right now he doesn’t want me

Today I cancelled our Boston plane tickets, rental car and hotel room which made not going seem very official. Travelling with a baby is hard enough when you are feeling well and as much as I would LOVE to cheer for my running girls I think it would be too much stress on my body. So that is that. After

Injury Update…

This morning before my doctor’s appointment I prayed that I would be ok with whatever the outcome might be. I prayed that the doctors would have wisdom to determine what was wrong and what treatment would be needed. My doctor decided to schedule me for an MRI which I had this afternoon. I was hoping that the MRI would be
