I'm a mom on the run!

Run DMT - I'm a mom on the run!


I took this photo of Erika and me at The HOB the other night and I just love it.  (I’m on the right.) It’s one of those turn the camera on yourself self-portrait shots and I think I did a pretty good job, if I do say so myself.

I love taking “self-portraits”.

 Self Portrait


Living life as a mom on the run between races and raising three beautiful, brilliant children (ages 11, 7, 2). Before a blissful life as a SAHM, I taught elementary school for 7 years. In 2007, I discovered a passion for running. I'm currently training for a fourth marathon as well as a variety of other races and triathlons. In my spare time, I am the lead organizer for the Tampa Bay Bloggers on Facebook. I'm currently training for two marathons as well as a variety of other races and triathlons. From start to finish, I'm a mom on the run trying maintain an easy pace through it all.

    Sometimes those are the best shots. Except for me, it usually takes 3 or 4 tries … I usually cut off half of my head. Or my husband’s. Or my daughter’s… LOL
