Running With Babies


These are not my babies. I don’t even know them. I met these babies at The FootZone in Bend last week. They were there with their mother, I think. They went on our fun run with us, and they were much faster than me. I remember running with babies. I have 3 kids, all 3 […]

Get Into the Groove…


Some days I feel like a break-dancer. Things move fast, I’m zipping around in circles and it feels like my head is spinning. Except if I actually try to spin around on my head while kicking my legs up in the air to get the momentum going, I’d break something. Like a lamp, or a […]

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 […]

The Easter Bunny vs. Quaker Oats Guy


They are fighting for my very soul, I think. Who will win today? I need the Quaker Oats Guy to go all Ninja on my secret boyfriend, Mr. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Do you think he can win? Will the cashews step up and help him? If the jelly beans side with Mr. Reese’s, I […]

The Long Run
