Okay, those pictures of me in the purple dress are pretty bad. I can’t believe I walk around like that. And you guys let me! Ah well, whaddya do.. I love my new hair! It’s funny how much of my self-esteem is tied up in how I look. I wish I could say it’s not […]

I Need a Makeover! The De-Frumpinization of @juliejulie

2

I have to fess up: I take a lot of pictures of myself for this blog, but usually only post the good ones (except when I let you see my bad hair on purpose!) So, some of you who don’t know me in real life, may think I’m a bit more…uh…less frumpy than I really […]

Running for Waffles at the Winery: Run Momma Run Brunch, Silvan Ridge

2

We drove to the country. We ran. We ate waffles, we drank mimosas. And we laughed. It was a good Sunday! Thanks to Laura McClain of Run Momma Run, every delicious Off the Waffle was perfect, the Silvan Ridge Early Muscat wine was sweet and crisp, and the talk by Cathie Twomey Bellamy of the […]

Running with Oranges: Paleo Style Half Marathon Training

0

Oh yes, we do rock, actually!. We just ran NINE miles! And, not only did we not die, but we actually felt pretty good. And, we both mentioned, right at about 8.5 miles, that maybe, just maybe we could do this silly Half Marathon in May after all.  And we will. This is the farthest […]

The Jeep Jog Stroller Review, and how I ran 8 miles, and lost 10 pounds eating Paleo!

3

This is the story of how I ran 8 miles last week, and how I’ve lost 10 pounds since I started the Paleo diet four weeks ago. I know it, I can barely believe it myself, but scales don’t lie. And neither does the mileage tracker on Baby Ruby’s new BOB Jeep Jog stroller, or […]

How to Eat Paleo on Vacation

2

So, on day 4 of my personal Paleo diet challenge I took my teenage daughter shopping in Portland (a belated Christmas present, she has the patience of a saint!) and miraculously managed to stick to my eating plan despite mandatory trips to some great Italian restaurants. And, I didn’t feel deprived, at all. For real. […]

How to Run 7 miles on Chubby Mommy Knees!

5

My chubby, 45 year old knees and I did something amazing today: we ran 7 miles, in a row! This is the first time I’ve ever run that far. Ever. And thanks to Keith’s Chi Running Workshop methods, I didn’t feel much pain. I did make Rebekah, my running partner, stop every 2 miles or […]

Going Paleo: Can I cut out the junk and eat real food?

3

I did it! I made it through my first day of The Paleo diet, and I didn’t die. I didn’t eat dairy (not even in my coffee!) or sugar or grain or drink any alcohol for a full 24 hours. I missed the alcohol most, because I do so enjoy a martini while I watch […]

Marathon Training: how to run intervals at the track

5

Coach Robin taught me how to run intervals at the track yesterday. The idea is to push yourself a bit, but learn to run at a consistent pace over and over. So we ran a lap, then rested, then ran again, and tried to keep the pace the same. This is tricky to do when […]

My UPS Man Can’t Swim: No IronGirl or IronMan for him!

1

I like my UPS man. He’s friendly and delivers happy stuff like the Little Big Planet 2 video game that makes 11 year old boys smile with true delight. And, my UPS man is proud of me when he sees the Chubby Mommy Running Club featured in the local paper or on the news. He […]
