Like my new space?
I started my last blog in a different place, under a different moniker, back in 2005. I stopped blogging there recently. Ultimately, it felt like I had written myself into a corner, and I needed to break free of that space and do something completely new.
So here I am.
Who am I?
I am the mother of a gorgeous, challenging, curious, amazing three year old boy. It was a long journey to bring him home, and I am grateful for him every day. But parenting can be a tough and thankless job.
I am a wife to a caring, generous, wonderful man who doesn’t always take as good care of himself as I wish he would.
I am a passionate runner who is attempting her first marathon in 19 days. I both love and hate my training cycles. Running is my zen, my stress relief, my time to process and wake up. It’s the one part of my day where I can NOT think. But it’s hard and taxes both my physical AND mental ability and there are days where I am utterly in love with it and days where it’s my prison.
I am a cog in the wheel of corporate America. I often wish I had made different choices in the past, but I’m starting to really come to acceptance of this fact: It’s still not too late to find a career in which I’m passionate.
You will find a mix of everything here. There will be pictures of my son and husband. You’ll hear about my training runs, my races. You’ll get to hear all about raising my kid and the beauty and challenge of being a full time working parent. You’ll get to hear about my career (in)decisions and where my next path will take me.
So welcome. And thank you for reading.
