Runner Mom

Mom of two wonderful boys (4 and 8) that keep me busy and on my feet. I'm trying to fit the time in for running, good nutrition and teaching my boys a healthy life style. A bit of a challenge... Our family also consist of a bullmastiff, Alex, a foster dog - Winnie, also a bullmastiff. There are also two parakeets, Spike and Chow, and some fish. We have also gotten involved with a local rescue group, so there has been a steady stream of doxies coming through our house.

I'm working on maintaining my weight and continuing to make healthy choices for myself and my family. Going back to basics and leaving the too processed stuff out of the grocery cart. Trying to inspire the boys to enjoy sports and realizing that it's fun being healthy!

My triathlete friend, GladGad, got me involved in a relay triathlon and I had a great time. Improving my swimming skills are on the bucket list to see if I can manage to do an actual triathlon by myself at some point. New goal for me, yay!

Another goal is to complete a full marathon. It's kind of on the shelf now as I've been sidelined for part of 2011 with a knee injury and elective foot surgery, so I think maybe my marathon goal is on the bucket list for either the end of this year or next year. I'm working my way back with moderate running, boot camp and bike riding.

Happy sparking to all my spark friends!

I know of at least one other migrating Swede, but you were the one I referred to on my blog. Your command of the English language is better than most native English speakers, and I oftentimes forget that you're not a native American (but you're an American nonetheless)!

Thanks so much for the bear hug goodie and for sharing that you are running again after your bunionectomy. It is a scary thing thinking that I may not be able to get back to where I was. It is so nice to hear that someone else did.

I wanted to share the whole poem...but same as the poem of Rainbow bridge...I'm still breaking down just reading this.
It is very hard, but we both know we have done the right thing.

(((hugs))) Lenka

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your pet. They are such a big part of our lives and leave a big hole when they are gone. Hugs to you.
