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

Back from the dead...

I took a really long break from the old blog for a lot of reasons. The first of which was I just didn't have time. Between teaching, grading papers, running, and being a mom and wife, I just couldn't balance it all; something had to give. So I dropped the blog.

And I've been missing writing about running. A lot. Often on my long runs, something funny will happen or I'll think of something blog worthy and want to post. But life gets in the way, I guess.

Today I ran an 8K race. It was blazing hot and humid and by the end of the run, I was dripping with sweat. It looked like someone dumped a bucket of water on me. During the run, I struck up a conversation with two lovely women. And we talked and ran the whole way in together. It reminded me how open and embracing the running community is. And it reminded me of the great friends I've made blogging about running, namely Katye and Erin. I met the two of them at a race, too.

So I knew I had to come back. Besides, my husband can only take so much talk about running.

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