Part Two!

Part two of our Michigan adventure included visiting with some of Josh’s friends on the eastern side of the state.  I was happy to go back and visit friends we had stayed with last time and their four kids.  Harry had met their three boys last time we visited and he was instantly obsessed with […]

15 Michigan Miles

At this point in my training, most of my long runs will be my longest distance run.  Prior to this week, my longest run had been my half marathon in March.  Facing 15 miles this week was scary even when I first glanced at the schedule months ago.  Add in my recent long run failures, […]

Part One of Our Michigan Trip

Greetings from the mitten!  This week we are vacationing in the beautiful state of Michigan, where my husband is from and where all of this family and many of his friends live.  We were able to visit in March when it was still very cold so there wasn’t much we could do.  No worries though, […]

One Sweaty Fundraiser!

This past week, Harry’s Heroes held a fundraiser at Orange Theory Fitness in Marlboro, New Jersey.  One of our founding members, Liz, works out there and just loves the gym, so it was fitting to try and get their support.  What started with her simply asking if they would be interested in helping us out, […]

Things are Happening

We are living in an exciting time right now.  Last year, the ALS Ice Bucket challenge raise $115 million in two months for a disease that did not have enough funding.  It was just released today that those funds helped fuel research on a particular protein that scientists have always suspected was responsible in some […]

The Bad Runs

Friends, I am seriously overdue for a set of good runs.  I can’t explain to you just how bad everything in that department has been going.  First, it started with a large hematoma on my left shin, which is finally feeling a little better.  Next, I broke my right pinky toe.  Nothing major, just another […]

Preschool Bound!

If you have been reading my blog, you know I have been very frustrated with the preschool process.  It’s being going on for months now, and I have to admit I attacked it from the beginning like an angry mama bear.  I never gave the school a chance.  In my defense, I am programmed at […]

Miserable Miles

Marathon training is well underway.  In fact, we are about halfway there.  Many of us are really in the swing of things, with our long runs now over the half marathon (13 mile) length.  Guys, it’s getting serious.  We are mentally and physically breaking down, only to hope to be rebuilt.  It. Is. Tough. Yesterday […]

Taking a Breath!

Guys I feel like I haven’t stopped in an entire month!!  Between getting ready for boards, 3 summer classes (with tons of papers, forgive me if I cite in APA format in this blog post), Harry’s medical/therapy/social calendar, training for a marathon…I’m beat!  I just want to sleep!  I feel like I’m only home to […]
