Oprah and Hula Hoops


I’m working on a video for Oprah’s new television network. It’s an open call, so I’ll be in the mix with 1,000’s of others, but hey, it’s a great excuse to get outside and meet new people, like the amazing Mollie Hogan of Hoopdazzle. I’ll post more soon, including a link to the video and […]

Chubby Mommy Running Club at the Beach


This is me and my friend Sissy. She just got a beach house. I liked her before she got the beach house, but now I’ll love her forever. Sissy has many friends who love her unconditionally. I’ve been on a couple of fun trips with this group in the past, including a jaunt to Cindy’s […]

5K in Baltimore: In Which My New BFF Dumps Me for a Cute Guy at Fitbloggin


So anyway, back to the total drama island of Fitbloggin-10 and my new best friend Fitarella, who’s even cuter in person, actually. And taller. When we left this story, I was in my hotel room in Baltimore alone at 10:00 p.m., eating flank steak and vegetables, watching CNN, texting my kids, and too exhausted to […]

FitBloggin Conference #1


I went to Baltimore for the Fitbloggin Conference last weekend, and then on to Washington DC. It was a whirlwind trip, and my head is still spinning a bit. I’ve decided to break the journey down for you in small steps and small posts because I’ve never been a big marathoner. I’m more of a […]

Running with a View


I ran around Green Lake when I was in Seattle last Thursday evening. It’s a great community gathering spot, in the middle of the city, where all kinds of people, babies and dogs cruise along a wide path that circles the lake in pursuit of exercise and conversation. I’m impressed with myself for making it […]

Today’s post brought to you by the delightfully dark, hilarious writer of the blog “There Once Was a Girl” Wendy started running, and should be an inspiration to 40 year old moms everywhere. She even does crunches on balls. And she makes her cat work out on the treadmill. I’m new to this whole fitness […]

How I Got Hot and Bothered in Snow Shoes


So I went snowshoeing. And it was easy, and it was fun. It was also a major workout, which frankly, I wasn’t really expecting. But it’s more fun than being on a treadmill. Also, there’s incentive to keep going when you’re snow shoeing, because if you stop half way through, you’ll freeze to death if […]

Train for Fun #2: Look, I’m Flying!


So I had my second day of “fun” with Luann Abrams at Training for Fun. Actually, I should take the quotes off the word fun, because it was fun. I mean, look – I even learned to fly on this Bosu ball. I swear to god that ball will be the death of me. Anyway, […]
