I'm a MOTHER to two beautiful girls, although this week that job has been pretty easy. Since it's Spring Break, my kids are spending a week at Grandma's house. While I miss them like crazy, I'm totally loving the free time to do what I want when I want.
I'm a WIFE to an awesome man. With the the kiddos gone this week, we've reverted back to behaviors unlike two responsible parents. Our words have been teasing and playful. We've drank beer. Last night, I felt like a kid again, whizzing down the trail on our bicycles as we raced each other to each mile marker. I treasure the days when marriage is fun.
I'm a TOUGH CHIK. I feel like all my athletic adventures fall under this title... runner, spinner, yoga-ist(?), cyclist, (trying to be) swimmer. Tough Chik is a state of mind. To me, it means the openness to try anything, to make the most of life's opportunities. Fail, get back up. Succeed, do it again (but faster and better next time). If you haven't caught the Tough Chik fever yet, check out Team Tough Chik. I joined in January and have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this amazing diverse group of women. Membership reopens May 1-13 to join Team Tough Chik (sign up here for an email reminder). If you choose not to join "the team," you can still sport the goods and feel tough! The Tough Chik Shop offers a cool variety of apparel - performance gear and casual tees. My only advice... size up, they do run on the smaller side.

I'm a BUSINESS WOMAN. It's spring, so my wedding/graphic design business is picking up... fast! Time to get back to work so we can pay for our Disney trip this fall... but it's really messing with my workout time!
I'm a SUPER HERO. If you missed my application video for the nuun Hood-to-Coast team, check it out here. Kinda one you don't wanna miss it... It will guarantee to make you laugh.
I'm also ANOTHER MOTHER RUNNER. I was featured here last Friday by two of my favorite authors. Their book Run Like A Mother was a like a bible to me when I first started running and the kids were babies. It literally spoke to me. So I was absolutely honored when they asked to feature me!
