So My Husband Wants A Short Post...

Because he thinks my other posts are far too long and people won't read them. Now, I'm not sure that this is something that I am capable of, but I'll give it a shot.

Let's see here. It should be about mommyhood and of course running. Hmmmm....

How about a random thought on one of my desperate running days when trying to figure out how to squeak a run in AND watch my two small girls? Yeah, let's go with that. This actually crossed my mind one day:

I know I can run pushing a jogging stroller. I wonder if I could run while pushing the jogging stroller AND wearing a baby carrier? Wouldn't that be a bizzarro case of shaken baby syndrome?

Nope...not really feelin' this. I'm not even giggling a little bit while I'm writing and that CAN NOT be a good sign. I am only going to let this post fly for one reason and one reason PROVE that I am not capable of a short post that's worth anything.

So my apologies to you all for this blah blah post but I have a point to make and in true mommy fashion I will not back down and do what I prefer to do and what is probably much easier. And I'm sorry if you all don't like it, but sometimes we have to do things we don't like. Life's not always fair and sometimes we have to learn our lessons the hard way. Please don't make me tell you again. Just be happy with what I've given you or maybe I'll give you nothing at all. Really, do I have to give you a timeout? (wait...what is it that we are talking about again? see I'm so bored I can't even focus. Just writing mommyisms.) And another thing...because I said so.

Anyone laughing? Bueller? Anyone?

See not funny and actually not so short either.

Back to good ol' me tomorrow...

PS. If this is your first time here, please go read another entry like the one about port-a-potty wars, or the greatest threat to my sanity, or stealing my husband's running socks or treadmill dot watching. This one is just not funny :-(

Hi there! I found you through The Mom Blogs list. I was literally looking for some running inspiration because I am really wanting to get back on the road and just have not had any motivation. :( Any tips?

I'm also a Michigander. :) My husband just ran a 5k tonight (in Novi). I suppose I just need to get out and run and leave the excuses behind, huh?

I'll be back to read more! ;)

Hey Christin! Welcome to Glad you found your way over here!

So funny, b/c I just today decided to do a couple of articles on how to get started running geared towards moms. I'll take that as a sign and get working on it. But I'll give you a sneak peek:

Step #1 Buy a good pair of running shoes -for two reasons, at least for me, spending that money makes me feel committed and two, the right pair of running shoes can make a BIG difference in how you feel and can even help prevent injury.

You've got a GREAT running store right near you, Running Fit. They do an excellent job of taking a look at your foot, your stride and sizing you for the right pair of shoes that will most benefit you.

Oh and one word of warning, you might want to leave the little darlings at home when you go shoe shopping. See my post The Greatest Immediate Threat to My Sanity: Shopping for New Running Shoes for more on that.

Be sure to come visit us again and please feel free to leave a comment anytime. I LOVE comments!
