Welcome to my blog. I talk all things running, food, and kids! Join my healthy living adventure, and enjoy life!

One year ago today, MommiesRun was born. 

Surprise!  It's twins!  Oh wait, no it's just one blog.  Just kidding.

It started out as a joint effort to document our journey to 13.1, and now it is MY baby. A place for me to inspire, and be inspired. A year later, I'm now on a journey to 26.2! I've made friends and MommiesRun has grown more than I could have ever imagined! Because I'm so thankful for all of you who read all the random thoughts I have, I have some of my favorite things to giveaway! But first, you get to indulge me in a look back at some of my favorite posts!

October 2012: What a Week(end) {The one where I show lots of pictures of my favorite places to run}

November 2012: Thinking Ahead {The one in which I discuss how important races can be to you}
