Family 5K

For being our first ever family run, Saturday's 5K went pretty well. Other than a dropped pink glove and some brief panic (on the part of the Princess) when Bean spit her Sixlets all over her blanket, the girls did awesome. I think it was fun for them to see all the other runners and to look for the other kids in strollers. The hubs did great too and really pushed himself the last mile. I am very proud of my little running family.

And since I'm on the subject of pride, I was actually kind of proud of myself when I pulled out my resume last week and was reminded what I have accomplished as a professional writer and editor. While I still do some freelance work, my life has transitioned to more "mommy" and less "writer." I forgot how many magazines, newspapers, web sites and even a few books have included my name as a contributor.

It made me stop and think about how things have changed. And how I wouldn't change a thing.


  1. FUN to race as a family, I am generally grabbing dropped sippy cups and crunching over fishy crackers..

    You should be PROUD!! Proud that you have your priorities in line and a wonderful career waiting for you..

  2. How fun! What a great family activity! And being a mom sure is rewarding!

  3. Congrats on such a fun family race!

    It's nice to look at our own accomplishments and admire them; and be happy with the choices we make. Good for you!

    Winks & Smiles,

  4. It's tough enough to get the whole family to ATTEND a race together, props for getting the whole fam to RACE it. In the Winter.
    And if being less pro writer means being more mommy, I'm sure you have two little cupcakes who support that choice.

  5. Sounds like a great time at the race. I can't imagine running pushing a double jogging stroller - you have my respect!

    (I may have missed one previously, but this is the first complete family photo that I remember seeing on your blog - it's nice to see everyone in one shot!)

  6. Now that is all just perfect! From the family race to all that you've achieved, well done!
