I am running for every mom, as a mom, who has had to see their baby endure chemo. I am running for every mom, as a mom, who has had to wear a paper hospital gown just to touch their baby. I am running for every mom, as a mom, who did not get to bring their baby home. I run in memory of my youngest son and cherish everyday with my oldest one. Join me in my adventures through motherhood, family life, and the challenges of being a 30-something athlete.

Hump Day Havoc
Yesterday was ridiculous. I just couldn't win and it actually carried over into this morning. Long day at work, rushing to get to my Spin class, adjusting to having 2 kids in tow...all in all just kind of rough. Yesterday I made a comment on my post stating that when I grew up I wanted to be a M.I.L.F. If you have never seen American Pie it is time to crawl out of your cave because you have missed some major amounts of time. Anyways....I thought my comment was hilarious. So funny in fact that I carried it over to my facebook status. Apparently I was wrong. While trying to get dinner on the table my husband asks me if I was fishing for compliments. My response.."whaaaa?" He said that status updates like that are people fishing for compliments. My response..."humph, maybe, I guess." This is not the usual response from me, I was obviously tired from my day and from the workout. If I had been on my game I would have popped off with the appropriate wife-type response of..."if you complimented me then I wouldn't have to fish for them." But like I said I was off my game so I agreed with him, next time...I am going total desperate housewife on his ass.
Here is a picture of me teaching spin class last night. This picture was sent to me during class from a girlfriend of mine. Typically, not a big deal although I do not understand why she thinks I am photogenic during workouts....must be the dim lighting and loud music. I noticed she was sending text during class but didn't think anything of it until it became glaringly obvious that I did not put my iphone on "airplane mode" which would have prevented me from receiving any texts, emails, or calls since I am using my iphone for music for class. So...right in the middle of the class the music briefly cuts out for my ding notification that I have received a text which draws my attention downward and everyone else in the class upwards. When I realize it is her, I give her the stink eye which makes her giggle. I quickly set my phone to airplane mode and look back at her. It is at this point that I get the giggles. I then lose the ability to look at her for the reminder of the class without giggling. I will note that I did get several compliments after class about it being a good class. I didn't even have to fish for those!!
