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

Super Duper Sunday: Short and Sweet

Despite the fact this is the last day of my break and tomorrow I have to go back to work, this has been a fantastic Sunday. Why you ask? Just a few reasons.

1. Pickle is back home. He was with my parents all weekend and it was wonderful to have some time alone with my hubby, but we really missed him and his silliness. (Currently he's snapping the points off all his crayons and saying he's taking the cap off. I can't convince him that he's actually breaking his crayons...)

2. I had a productive 5 mile run today. I kept it nice and slow because it's supposed to be a long run, but the last mile I just wanted to get home and ran my fastest mile during the whole route. I've got 11 weeks left to train, and I think I'm in a good place to improve my time this upcoming half marathon.

3. AND THE BEST OF ALL, my sweet hubby is making me dinner. A dinner full of my favorite comfort foods, meatloaf and macaroni and cheese. From scratch. Yeah, he's pretty awesome. The smells coming from the kitchen are so intoxicating I can barely type. So please excuse any usage or spelling errors In case you're in the mood now, here's the recipe he's using for the mac and cheese. It's an Alton Brown recipe. We've always found him to have solid and yummy recipes.
The hubby just yelled that dinner is ready. Excuse me while I get drunk on comfort food.


  1. what a perfect sunday!!!

    i too must return to work tomorrow...i'm looking forward to being back on a schedule and in a routine, but break was TOO much fun :)

  2. Enjoy that dinner!!!!

    Thank you so much for commenting on my blog to let me know about the skirt sale =D I am definitely going to check that out!

    I will be following you now, too. I love your bio- having kids really does show a woman what she's made of.

  3. Had to laugh a little at your comment "just wanted to get home". Sometimes when it's really cold, I find my last mile is my fastest because frankly, my cheeks (pick a pair, they're usually ALL cold) are freezing and I just want to be home in a warm shower!


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