Aerial Yoga Teacher Training
This past weekend I did something really fun: I got certified to teach aerial yoga! When I first saw that the training was being offered at one of my favorite studios, I was really torn about signing up. It sounded so amazingly fun, but it was a big commitm...

Rite of Passage
Last night I reached an important parent milestone- I caught my child's vomit in my hands. I'm a nurse, but I hate puke. Blood, poop, urine, pus, mucus- none of them bother me. As soon as I'm near vomit though, I start gagging. Yet last night, when Cooper s...

All the Bad things I Forgot About Long Runs
I've done 8 marathons and a lot (I've lost count)of half marathons, so I've done my fair share of long runs in my life. However, I haven't done one in more than 2 years and somehow in that time I forgot about all the not so pleasant things. It's just like c...

This morning I ran 9 miles, the longest run I’ve done since having a baby. It was wonderful. Despite starting at 530 am, I felt great. It was mild, the roads were clear, and there was a stunning sunrise. It was one of those runs where everything just clicke...

My gym has cancelled a lot of my favorite classes. But every cloud has a silver lining, and in this case it has forced me to get out on the gym floor and create my own workouts more. I really have enjoyed this. It has forced me out of my rut of always doing...

The Big 3
Sadly this post isn’t about This is Us, even though I love, love that show. It’s about running outside, which I finally got to do this morning.  I have missed seeing the sun rise I've been spending an awful lot of time on the dreadmill this winter. There ar...

Just like that, my baby is one. I truly can't believe it. We celebrated with a puppy picnic over the weekend. I was totally expecting this to be a Pinterest fail, but it wasn't! So many babies, so much fun I'm not sure he's really my kid, he was not a fan o...

Balance
It's 3 pm on Saturday, Cooper just went down for his afternoon nap, and I'm having a debate with myself. Do I tackle sorting through the 3 enormous tubs of outgrown baby clothes or do I take a break and do some yoga? I feel like I have some version of this ...
