Aerobic Housecleaning?


My kid has been sick all week and my husband’s out of town. It’s interrupting my running routine. My kid’s old enough that I can run to the store to buy him 7Up while he watches reruns of iCarly with a bucket nearby, but I do feel kinda guilty leaving him for an hour to […]

“I Made You Jump and Down!”


I went to Washington DC a couple of weeks ago, after my trip to the FitBloggin Conference. I was only there for a day, but managed to meet some old friends and some new friends. I’m lucky that way. It was a chilly Tuesday morning in DC, and I was standing in front of the […]

Running with Inga the Wolf Dog: he loves me, I swear it


I went running around the Deschutes River Trail in Bend today with Roxanne (not her real name) and her dog Inga (not his real name.) Roxanne runs faster than me, so I usually bring my camera. Roxanne is a professional photographer, so it’s easy to make her stop every half mile and take a picture […]

@juliejulie. Mannequin. Vegas. U2.


This doesn’t have anything to do with being chubby, a mommy, or running. This is just me being weird, scoring some great tickets to U2 in Vegas, putting my mannequin on an airplane, and making my best friend come along for the ride. I wrote a story about the Francine goes to Vegas adventure a […]

Running with Inga


Dear Roxanne: Can Inga come running with me today? I think he likes me. Dear Julie: No. Inga and I are lost in the woods right now. I need him to find our way home. He is sniffing the air, he can’t talk to you. Dear Roxanne: Well, how about tomorrow? You don’t have to […]

The Dark Side of Crunches: Wendy Has a Knife


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 […]

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, […]

Please Pray for My Knee


Dear Roxanne, Thank you for yet another delightful excuse that I will eventually work into my blogging efforts in order to generate more popularity, for myself, in order to further brand myself as a person who is clever enough to surround herself with smart, funny people who, like herself, can find 6 reasons not to […]
