pregnancy fitness

Let me start by saying that I am no fitness expert - I'm just a pregnant lady who is doing her best to have a healthy, happy, balanced pregnancy! That being said, I've been through this twice now and have learned some valuable lessons along the way. It's no surprise that staying active throughout pregnancy is [...]

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Mizuno. Earlier this summer I found myself in a totally new (and horribly uncomfortable) situation. I experienced my first running injury with a hip that wouldn't allow me to stride forward without excruciating pain. I made a few rookie runner mistakes like not being [...]

On Sunday morning, Jeff and I ran the Monster Mash 5k. I love themed runs and wanted to find a FUN one for October! This was the 2nd year of the Monster Mash, and it was a blast. It was a family oriented event with a kids dash, 1 mile run and 5k - all proceeds [...]

AMRAP bar giveaway

With the hip pain I've been experiencing lately with running, it was time to find another way to exercise. Swimming laps was my main form of exercise in college, but I hadn't dipped into the lap lanes since I was pregnant with Eleanor! The only problem was that my one piece suit never fit quite right [...]

Happy Monday! I hope you are all enjoying this LONG weekend and taking some time for rest and relaxation. Weekends don't mean much for a stay at home mom, but Eleanor and I sure enjoy our extra time with daddy :) Our "weekend" will continue today with one final trip out to the lake. Everything will [...]

warrior dash

warrior dash

On Saturday Jeff and I dropped Eleanor at my parents' house and trekked to Earlham, Iowa for the Warrior Dash. It was not your typical Midwest August day with temps in the 70's and a fine mist - in other words it was PERFECT for a 3.3 mile mud run with 12 obstacles! We arrived [...]
