Happy First Birthday Squish!!!  We can’t say enough about the past year with our funny, mischievous, curious little girl.  Here’s to another year of cuddles, messes, exploring and growing.  We love you so much.

In the circles I frequent (especially the ones on social media) there are lots of new mommas, especially new mommas who happen to be runners and triathletes.  A pretty frequent topic of conversation has been “what will running be like post-partum” and “what doctors and health care professionals don’t tell you.”  While there are lots …

As I sit here, I’ve officially been back to work for almost four weeks after a fourteen week maternity leave.  Our fourth trimester went by incredibly fast and its hard to believe its almost the end of 2016.  Pretty much everything in the last year has been an adjustment — being pregnant, giving birth, staying home with Ivy …

Since I’ve started in running and triathlon, I’ve alternated good years and bad years. Odd years are good ones; even ones are less so, all the way down to terrible. Breaking that down further: 2010: enter the sport officially 2011: good running race results, finish my first two 70.3s 2012: avoid the injury bug, but underperform …

Back in December / January I thought it would be a really great idea to run Ragnar Cape Cod at 25 weeks pregnant.  I mean, how hard could it be?  I’d take a set of sort legs and coast through 13 ish miles easy.  Yeah, I was not bright.  After a first trimester filled with …

Double Red

I’ve been really quiet lately.  Its not because I don’t have a lot to say, its because I don’t know how to say what probably is the most important thing in my world now — I’m separating from Shaun. I love Shaun (not loved, present tense, love).  Shaun is an incredibly important person to me …

For my day job I work as an employment litigator.  In my free time I am an age group endurance athlete (running and triathlons), a race director and a coach.  Usually these two worlds don’t intersect too much (with a few notable exceptions such as when Lance Armstrong graced our federal courts with his presence). …

As much as I write on an every day basis (for lawyer work, on twitter, on Face Book and here on the blog), I sometimes find myself at a loss for words.  I consider myself to be very good at writing about what I am thinking or my opinions on things around me (which are …

This is my right shoulder.  During the last week of April is began to ache.  I figure I was just tired.  My whole body is generally sore so I didn’t pay too much attention to a new ache in my shoulder.  When swimming the ache began to turn into pain, especially during the recovery phase …

Danny, Kelly, Eric & Kate

  This weekend was a special one for me.  It wasn’t a race but rather the chance to participate in something bigger.   In 2013 after the Boston Marathon bombings two Brits — Danny Bent and Kate Treleaven — decided that they wanted to do something, anything to support the victims of the bombings and started …
