Re: Hot running (newish) Momma's thread...

So nice to get running and kid and mom updates!!! Thanks for getting this going again, FP! I am also the most relaxed about running than I have been in so long. I hurt my hamstring at the start of marathon training this summer. It hurt every single step of the 5 runs/70-80k I was running per week. I...

Re: Hot running (newish) Momma's thread...

Awww, my heart goes out to you momma's with back to school. One more year and I will be in the same boat (although my January boy is so ready to go now)! I am crying just reading about all of your kiddies!!! I am with pts...thinking about you. Even though I teach grade seven, I still talked to a lo...

Yay little C! And er, Isaiah for putting together such an eloquent sentence :wink: I was away from my girlie for the weekend and when I got home she squeeled "Mommy! I'm just, just, just...I'm just so happy to see you!". Melts my heart. How's all the running and other stuff going for ever...

Proud mom when Isaiah said a pretty long sentence/statement. Not proud when it was, and I quote, " Mommy has hair on face. Beard like Daddy. Yuckkkyyyyy!!!" Then, and I am not kidding, there were tears from him!!!! I think I scared my own child. Perhaps I will find acceptance if I run away...

Thanks everyone! I'm hopeful this means good things for the big race. I know that I have a lot more confidence in my training than I did this time last week. Some race pictures are up.

Re: Do you carry 'protection'?

I do a few things to ensure I am as safe as I can be... -I always tell my husband my route after hearing about a local runner who fell, hit her head on the ice, and was unconscious for HOURS!!! Nobody knew where she was -I wear Road ID-my old one did have my healthcard number on it but not this new ...

Wow I am just SO impressed with everybody's accomplishments. Do you all realize how crazy it is that you are: running marathons, working, getting back to running after having your SECOND (eeeeek) kid, pushing million-pound strollers? I think because we all run on here it seems like it may not be a b...
