Mom On The Run: Training For My First 10k

I'm never one to back down from a challenge. Crazy or not, I will NOT be outdone. I'm convinced it's due to my only child status, but I digress. So when an acquaintenance casually mentioned that they were doing a 10k, I indirectly took it as a challenge, and a little too quickly said 'I'm going to do it too'. Seriously, what was I thinking?!?

When Momma's Got To Work

I consider my life a fine dance in balancing work, family, and personal obligations. Sometimes, my rhythm is a little off, and other times, I feel like I should be a contestant on 'So You Think You Can Dance'. Being a mom is challenging within itself, but adding the pressures of working outside the home really takes extreme coordination between all facets of my life. I still remember my first day back to work after maternity leave, crying as I pulled out of my parking lot, thinking 'How am I…
