A Run With My Girls

First she took pictures while I ran...

Then she ran...

Then her sister wanted to run but was a little hesitant...

But she couldn't resist...

And she was very proud of herself when she was finished!

RUN: I told The Princess this could be our last double jogger run because they are getting too big and it's getting harder to push them. She told me: "I won't tell my kids it is the last time because I am a good mom to my babies and I am stronger than you." Well okay then.


  1. Kids say the darnest things.
    Love the pictures. You have some adorable girls. :)

  2. Now you must archive this blog post for posterity and when your daughter comes to you 20 years from and mentions the kids are "too big to push around on a run" you can show her this.

  3. Adorable! A new runner in training. :)

  4. That is hilarious! Love it! Can't wait for my little girl to start telling me that I'm slacking!

  5. So cute!! Love the pics! Kids sure say the funniest things!!!!!!

  6. Ha! Are you sure that your Princess and my Dizzle aren't related?

  7. She took really good pictures! I love that view!! I am jealous, I wish I had a view of the mountains like that. What she said is so funny! kids are so "matter-of-fact...I guess I told you"

  8. Well, you've got the extra weight of the cast on your little one. I know (unfortunately from experience) that once it comes off, the load is a little bit lighter.

    And tire pressure. Huge.
    Usually if you have the right tire pressure, especially on a flat trail, it should almost be effortless.

    Great pictures, you live in a beautiful area.

  9. I want to run there! How beautiful. It's so satisfying to see our children move and run and have fun. Yours could be a family of great runners! Good to get such an early start. Thanks for sharing that adorable little girl with us!

  10. Sooo funny!! Our kids love the double jogger runs, but they are over 90lbs combined not including stroller.. Maybe hubs and I can get single strollers and run in tandem.

    SUCH CUTE pictures!

  11. They are so cute!! Looks like a beautiful run!

  12. Gorgeous pics and a cute little girl! She's going to be a runner one of these days! (And she will be VERY strong. hehe). So cute.

  13. This is the sweetest post! Love the photos. I think your daughter is right. Think of that great upper body workout you are getting. It's like two workouts in one! ;-)

    ..okay, my jogger is just a single. Now they can ride bikes while you run.

  14. Nice run with your girls, I love the pictures too. Your girls will be a future runners too.

Carpet Burn On My Butt (and a giveaway)

After two lame, pathetic, lackluster weeks of running, I woke up excited to run yesterday. And today, I wore my running clothes all morning in anticipation of my nap time run today. Even in spite of sore glutes and tired quads from getting in some P90X Core Synergistics last night, I couldn't wait to get moving on Millie. I am a planner. Today I had a plan to get my run in while my girls slept, and my day was organized accordingly. I am also a creature of habit. The first thing I do when I roll out of bed every single day is make my bed and my girls' beds. If I do something else first, it throws off the entire morning. I am a creature of habit when it comes to my running routines as well. There are a few things that differ depending on whether I am running on Millie or outside, whether my girls are asleep or not, and whether or not they are joining me in the jogger. Yet, no matter when, where, how far or with whom I run, some things are always the same. My hair goes into a pony

I wasn't sure going in...

Yep, I'm checking in. Why? Because I did something completely out of my comfort zone that I wanted to share with you. Last week I went to a place near Salt Lake called Dexa Body, where I got a DEXA Scan. For those unfamiliar with what that is, I asked Google to help us out:  "Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry  ( DXA , previously  DEXA ) is a means of measuring  bone mineral density  (BMD). Two  X-ray  beams, with different  energy levels , are aimed at the patient's  bones . When  soft tissue   absorption is subtracted out, the  bone mineral density  (BMD) can be determined from the absorption of each beam by bone. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is the most widely used and most thoroughly studied bone density measurement technology." Since that is pretty medical sounding, here's my take. A DEXA Scan is a tool to measure your total body composition. It specifically breaks down the regional composition of your lean and fat tissue. It gives a fat distribution

Social Media: Some good, a lot of bad, and way too much ugly

There are a lot of good things that come from social media. We can connect with people we have lost touch with. We can unite as a group (runners!!) with a comment interest. We can promote a good cause. Sadly though, what social media does best is makes us feel bad about ourselves and makes us feel negatively towards others. This isn't just my opinion, although I can unquestionably support the truth behind this based on my own experience. I have spent way too much time feeling bad about myself as a result of comparing myself to others based on their Instagram or Facebook versions of themselves. And there are several people I have started feeling negatively about or have become completely annoyed with because of their IG and FB posts. It isn't just me though. There are actual studies that can back me up on the negative impact social media can have. I have read dozens of articles reviewing many different studies that show the overwhelmingly negative (vs. positive) effec
