Systems malfunction

Running is now into my daily life system some days are better than others but the miles I’ve gained so far this week mean I’ll pas 1,000 career miles by next week! If you’re having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn’t you. The problem is your system. Last year in September I read theContinue reading “Systems malfunction”

Let’s Celebrate Minimalistic Running Shoes on Global Running Day (Again)

Last year on June 3rd I wrote about Global Running Day and minimalistic running shoes… This year it came a day early and I took advantage of it by running 2 miles on my way to 100 this summer!

But without struggling…

Today on my list of things to write about it says I should share what people can most likely find you doing when you’re not at work. Motherhood doesn’t end and since I’m temporarily unemployed until the next school year, really I’m struggling right now to beat back the demons of wanting to sleep allContinue reading “But without struggling…”

Against The Grain

Spanking, or rather paddling, in schools recently made headlines when a Florida student was paddled by a principal and it was caught by an outside party to the incident.

The series of posts I’m doing on this subject matter are expanded from an article I foundContinue reading “Life in Kindergarten — Cutting”

Marvel at the Marvel movies

It’s so funny how a whole generation has a thing that they can attach themselves to which makes their experience the same as the others around them. I’ve seen all the Harry Potter movies. I’ve seen the Divergent series. I’ve seen Game of Thrones. I’ve watched most of the Handmaidens Tales. I’m in love withContinue reading “Marvel at the Marvel movies”

Running and running

Have you ever run a 5k? 10k? Half marathon? Marathon even? I never thought of myself as a runner but for a time when the kids were little trained for a 5k then look and up to a half marathon. Recently I got back to running after a long time away and I’m loving myContinue reading “Running and running”

Emotions

I recently became a part of a new friend group and the one thing they all have in common and yet all seem to clash over is their emotions. At the first meeting we had there were words exchanged and despite my own ability to be a hothead I found myself extremely calm about theContinue reading “Emotions”
