Houston Marathon Training Week 14 and meet my little climber…

My little baby turned 11 months this week and has turned into quite the little climber. He even figured out how to make it to the top bunk by himself.  We have since moved the ladder so he is not tempted.  That boy… 🙂 This week was full of school Christmas parties, too many cookies and candy and also RUNNING! I am at the end of Week 14 and finishing my highest mileage week yet.  After tomorrow’s 3 mile run…

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! There’s just something comforting about knowing that there’s a finish line out there just waiting for me. With every new…
