I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

Just back from a Run

I went for my very hot and sweaty run. It felt o.k and was much better with Adam tagging along. If he were not with me I would have stopped due to the heat. my lungs were fine, and so was my body as we took it really slow. It was just as hot as hot can be and felt like we were swimming through the air.
But I just took a cold shower and now Adam is off to work and I feel great. I am rejuvanated for the rest of the afternoon and the evening with the kids.

My friend Emma was visiting yesterday and today if you are wondering how I was able to run with hubby and no children. She did not mind being in the house while we took off for 27mins while all three kids were sleeping.

That is one thing to keep in mind. So what if you have visitors for a few days. You don't need to be on top of each other 24/7 so stick to your program and routine. You will be a great example to them and your kids that your health is a priority. Maybe you will motivate them to join you in your run/walk/bike if there is someone to watch the kiddos.

I've got the kids to myself now untill tomorrow afternoon so the .5 hour break to recharge myself is a necessity. I'm glad I got it while I could.....even if it was HOT HOT HOT!!!!

Hi there! I just found your blog and am so inspired by your dedication!! I have been struggling to get back to my consistent running program for some time. We moved to Okinawa Japan a year ago (a military family) and that has been my biggest excuse ~ too hot and humid in our tropical country! I'll be checking back as I try to give myself a kick in the pants to get back to where I want to be healthwise! Great job! You look wonderful!!
