I'm tired. I haven't run since Saturday. I haven't read one blog since last week. My kitchen floor desperately needs mopped. My to-do list is ridiculously long.

That's what happens when your baby gets sick. Throwing up nine times yesterday sick. Sleeping with Mommy and Daddy sick. Not eating sick. Falling asleep in Mommy's arms at ten in the morning sick. Currently working on an unheard-of second nap of the day sick.

Yet snuggling my baby when she is sick is one of the few things that can come between me and a run without any accompanying feelings of guilt.

Mommy trumps runner every time.


  1. As well it should. I hope she's feeling better soon.

  2. Here's to hoping your little one feels better soon! Take care. :)

  3. Good for you! Hope bay is feeling better soon.

  4. oh no! hope she feels better soon!!

  5. I couldn't have said it better. In fact, mommy trumps everything.

    9 times?? Poor thing.

  6. Poor baby! I hope she feels better soon!

  7. I hope your baby feels better soon!

  8. Hope baby feels better soon! I'm with ShutUpandRun...mommy trumps everything.

  9. Sending get better [real fast] thoughts from AZ!

    Screw the floor.
    Get out there. ;)

  10. Hope your little one feels better soon!

  11. Perfectly fine for a sick baby to interrupt life, we know that a sick parent interrupts theirs, too.

    Hope she's on the mend, just enforce healthy habits: vitamins, washing hands, wearing pants :p

  12. Poor baby! And poor mama - hope she's on the mend soon. They're only little once - it's great that you're able to take time to be with her when she doesn't feel good!

  13. I hope she feels better soon. A big hug from Italy.

  14. You definitely made the right choice! I hope she feels better soon!

  15. I hate when the kids are sick!!! Have a great week!

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

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

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
