Early morning summer runs are here!

Summer is really here! I think I’m still stuck in the Chicago mindset where summer is sort of a tease still. You get these great, beautiful days but then a few cold days suddenly strike. I remember wearing a coat one year in June. You never really know when the summer temps are there to stay. But I’m happy to say that here in Nashville, they are indeed here to stay. And I’m so excited! Summer is my favorite time…

Mother’s Day 2015

I had such a great Mother’s Day yesterday. It was just such a good day to spend with my family and I really, really enjoyed it. Plus, I discovered some new spots in Nashville, possibly the best brunch I have ever had, and found out my little girl is going to be quite the water baby. Brett and Ady woke me up with a cute little card. Ady was holding it in her hand waving it at me. It had…

Country Music Half Marathon 2015: Race Recap

So I have to admit how nervous I really was for the half marathon I just ran last weekend. It’s silly, I know, because it’s not like I was going to win the race. I wish! But it was a big deal to me. It was my first race after having my daughter (10 months after to be exact) and I had no idea how I was going to do. My current PR is around 1:45 so I decided to…

The Marathon That Won’t Happen

I signed up to run the full marathon in Nashville quite awhile ago. I was all pumped up about it, had my training plan ready to go, and was focused. Then… life happened. (Also, a reason I haven’t posted as much!) I wanted to share my journey of returning to run a marathon after pregnancy, all about my training runs, and how I was doing. But the truth is, life just got crazy. We moved (which was a lot more…

Moving cities: Lessons Learned!

As I mentioned in a previous blog, we have made a big change in our lives and moved from Chicago to Nashville.  I am still mourning the big city and getting used to a more suburban lifestyle… it’s going to take more time than I realized but I will get there. During this whole moving chaos (truly CHAOS), I have learned a thing or two that I thought I would share.  Some of this you might already know and some…

Big Move

Life changes when you have a baby.  I can’t tell you how many times I was told this while I was pregnant.  And it’s absolutely, 100% true. Having Adyson is one of the best things that have happened to my husband and me.  It’s also been one of the hardest.  Raising a human is TOUGH!  But what changes isn’t just your sleep, the amount of showers you take, or your finances, it’s also the way you think. My husband and…
