Baby and I have made it to the home stretch! While I don’t think baby will come before his due date (we’re a punctual people), you just never know. So I’ll record my experiences with pregnancy, body image, running, and faith now. Just in case. For those friends and family who’ve wanted to see bump photos…here… [Read More]
Meanwhile, back at the ranch....
I could say these posts are for sharing pieces of my personal story, thinking-out-loud posts, and things I'm really excited about. Honestly, it's mostly about Moxie.
First, don’t forget to enter my Endorphin Warrior GIVEAWAY (ends 2/15/16). Second, check out the new 20 Minute Running Workout – I’m thinking of doing a whole series. Okay, now for the latest “Life Lately” where I share…whatever I feel like. You know, I mostly write these for me – so I can look back and… [Read More]
Interested in the NASM Certified Personal Trainer Exam? Contact me and I’ll put you contact with my NASM Education Advisor, Michael Miller. I started 2016 off with a bang: a shiny new certification (NASM Certified Personal Trainer) to add to my collection (RRCA, CFL1). There are MANY helpful and free study tools online. I used a… [Read More]
The past two months I’ve began making it out the door at either 6AM or 6:30 a couple days a week. Totally a normal time, right? Although it is still completely dark. No hint of sunrise yet. This new routine has had more of an impact on me than I anticipated. The alarm went off at 5:30… [Read More]
So I’ve been doing this since 2012. This thing where, before focusing on New Year Resolutions and setting too many goals for myself when I literally have no idea what crazy/awesome things could happen in the next 12 months (did you see I’m pregnant?), I take time to look at what happened this past year and what that… [Read More]
SO MUCH TO DO! SO LITTLE TIME! With a lump of days left in this year, 2015 crunch time is upon us. Once again I want to do more than I can, realistically, but am confident I’ve got my priorities lined up. Here is a mishmash of a “life lately” log, one theme at a time. Random… [Read More]
Previously, I wrote about how I don’t like New Year’s Resolutions. I think we should have resolve to get after our goals regardless of what it says on the calendar. HOWEVER, I love Year End Reflections! The last few days on the calendar are a great time to review: how I spent my year, how my… [Read More]
It’s no secret that running is my main squeeze, and so far I’ve been lucky it still feels good halfway through my pregnancy. However, I need strength and conditioning work to feel my best even when I’m NOT pregnant. Now with a growing belly and the inevitable physical trauma of labor…I can benefit from a prenatal… [Read More]
Here’s a little life update. I had zero idea what to title it so…we’re going with the pregnancy timeline thing. A few notes on that before moving on to other things. Pregnancy culture is weird. I feel like I eat constantly. We’ll find out if it’s blue or pink on the 20th! I simply can’t be… [Read More]
Yeah, I ran finished the 44th Annual Portland Marathon last Sunday…while carrying a baby in my stomach that is currently the size of a peach (or so they tell me). If you want to know about the race, click here. This post is more about my personal experience on the course and what I’m reflecting on… [Read More]
