Running the DC Cherry Blossoms!

This morning I had a really fun treat – my annual early morning run/walk adventure around the DC cherry blossoms with a few of my favorite ladies! I do an early morning cherry blossom run (or two) with the girls every year and it’s one of my favorite things – so fun and a great way to see the cherry blossoms without a thousand people in the Continue Reading …

Day in the Life–4 Month Old Baby Edition

Hi guys! I haven’t done a day in the life post since Riese was born, so I thought it might be interesting to give a glimpse into what one of my workdays looks like now with the babe in the mix.

Hi guys! I’m back for part 2 of my weekend recap. If you missed part 1, check it out first! When I left off, it was Saturday and the weather was gorgeous – so clearly that called for a hike!

Weekend

Hi guys! I went for my first solo, official postpartum run on Saturday – I busted out my watch and everything! I hardly remembered how to use it it had been so long since I dusted it off. ;) My other postpartum runs have been spontaneous jog/walks while out with the dog (I had done that a few times and made it up to roughly a mile or so), but I Continue Reading …
