friday confessions

Confession #1: I haven’t cleaned the house in a long time. A really long time. Kiddo and I are going to spend our Friday getting the house cleaned because Grandma and Grandpa (my parents) are coming to visit next week for spring break. At least that’s the plan.

This may not look that messy to you, but it’s been driving me nuts for the past week.

Confession #2: I don’t read running blogs. I wish I could read running blogs, but almost every one I’ve tried to read I’ve hated. It’s super hypocritical of me to say that, since I write a running blog and all, and I apologize. It is one of my (many) faults.*

That being said, last night I found a running blog I actually like. It’s Cotton T Runners, written by Chelsea. It’s a relatively new blog, so I thought I’d give her a shout-out. I think she’s got a pretty good idea going on so be sure to check it out! (I don’t want to give it away, you’ll have to follow the link to find out :)

On his first walk in the stroller. He was so tiny back then! (Those overalls don’t even fit anymore!)

Confession #3: I’ve been too lazy to take Kiddo out for a run in the jogging stroller :( However, these two ladies (S. and Ashley) have encouraged me to attempt a run with the stroller this weekend. I’m looking forward to that tomorrow!

That’s my weekend plan, what’s yours?

Note*: I try really hard to include a few non-running tidbits in each of my posts. I think what I find monotonous about running blogs is the “today I ran <this> far, it was <insert adjective> “, so I try to stay away from writing about that. A few of my early posts were like that, and I wasn’t happy with the direction the blog was going. Running is where I come up with a lot of my ideas for posts, so that is why my blog is centered around running. In no way do I think my blog is better than anyone else’s, I just had trouble finding similar blogs that I wanted to read, so I thought I’d write my own.

  1. I will be going to Kelly Schneeberger’s birthday party tomorrow. Her bday was in February, but we (the girls of the family) are just getting around to celebrating it. I hope to go running too.

  2. Hey, thanks for the shout out! Let’s try a run together one of these days with the strollers and the kiddos. I’ve been wanting to suggest that for a while now, I just don’t think I can keep up with you yet! But I’ll try and I want the motivation/kick in the butt that keeping up with another mama would provide.

    Also, I completely agree about the running blog comment. I’ve tried so hard to find good inspirational running blogs and there just aren’t many out there, mostly because the ones that exist are of the “here are my stats for today” variety, which falls flat after a post or two. I love what you’re bringing to the running blog community by sharing your life, your story about being a mom, and showing how running fits into that narrative. So much more inspirational that way!

    Now I’m going to go check out Chelsea’s blog!


Thanks for stopping! I love to hear your comments :)
