i ran.


yesterday i ran. between the cool raindrops and dark sky.
i let the wet pavement carry my feet. my mind traveling alone.

yesterday i ran. to the sound of music and beat of my heart.
the winter day wrapped around my body. taking me further with each step.
i waited for rain to become snow. for soft flakes to kiss my skin.

i ran.



Since Jess was born I've lost my focus when it comes to running. I still run every week, but I'm lucky to get in three runs. Perhaps it's a lack in motivation, perhaps it's the weather but I've decided this is one of my main goals for 2012.

Get out and run. Run more, run longer, run harder.

That being said... I'm always looking for new music to run to so if you have any suggestions or favorites please share!
My current list includes Phish (duh, I'm sure you knew that), MGMT, Pretty Lights, Florence and the Machine, Black Keys, STS9 and I always have a little Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix on hand.

No running for me today though and probably not tomorrow. We have two sick little boys on our hands. Joshua woke up last night around midnight and got sick in bed and that continued every hour all night. I hate seeing the little ones so sick, It breaks my heart when you are powerless. No matter how many kisses and hugs I could give Joshua wasn't getting better. After a day of rest, soup and lots of fluids (thanks Nana for bringing them over) Joshua is tucked into bed right now and feeling better. Jonas is feeling much better too although I think he had a slight case of the sympathy sickness. He did have a cough and cold but seemed extra sick today since Josh was so down. Sounds suspicious to me ;)


  1. Yay! Good for you :) I need to run more often...I've been so bad about it. You look awesome :)

  2. Good for you!! It's so hard to take that time for ourselves but so important to do it! The new Black Keys album is awesome and perfect for a good run!
