I've started this blog to document my journey running while balancing motherhood, and eventually if I'm lucky enough, my next pregnancy.

All Points Bulletin

MISSING: Grey Reflective SpiBelt. Last seen 1 week ago on lying sweaty on the dining table after owner threw her there after a long run.
Owner has released this letter:

My beloved partner,

I don't know where you are or why you are gone-- have you have just run away from me? Are you are just lost? Are you are broken?-- but regardless, I miss you terribly and want you back. Runs just aren't the same without you. I must have you to survive training for a half marathon. Today I ran without you... it was so upsetting. I didn't have a place to carry my key and had no other option than to shove it down my bra. Now my boobs have key imprints and scratches all over. I also didn't have the comfort of having my Clif Shot Bloks right at hand and now realize I so needed that while running against the wind and all uphill for an entire run (how is that even possible for a run to be entirely uphill??).

For so long, you have kept many of my belongings safe and I have taken you for granted. I have thrown you on the floor, packed you until you seem you will explode, allowed 3 foot tall monsters to treat you like a toy, but now I see. Now I see how perfect you truly are. I only hope it isn't too late for us. Please come back to me. I have neglected you and not treated you with the respect you deserve. I promise I will no longer let anyone, including the 3 foot tall monster, hurt you.

And in case the 3 foot monster who might have taken you can read this (which is a stretch given he doesn't really know his ABC's yet), I'm watching you. If you know what's good for you, you will return her before this Sunday when I have to run 9 miles and desperately need her.


  1. Mine went missing like that for almost a week. With my driver's license and debit card still safely inside. And I totally (mentally) blamed my 4 year old. Turns out, I should have blamed Hubs- his huge messenger bag tried to eat my SPI belt (the velcro is serious business on that bag).

  2. haha! I'm thinking I probably did something odd with it. So I guess I should blame myself... but who wants to do that? lol.

  3. Ha! I hope you found it.
    Thanks for commenting on my blog.


I'd love to hear from you. Nothing makes me happier (except chocolate and cupcakes... but really, who can compete with them?)
