Better late than never! I intended to write/publish this weeks ago...and life happened. But I also know it's probably not too late! This post is especially for those lucky runners who are hauling their kids to Boston for Marathon Monday. It's a big, fun city, but it's...

What makes a training cycle?

It's hard to believe that a) Ben's been here for two months and b) we've managed to juggle two kids for the last two months! Parenting two little kids is definitely a special challenge! Both Ben and Grace are at an age where they need near constant supervision and assi...

This news has been a LONG time coming, and I am so excited to share that the Williams family is Boston Bound! We found out "unofficially" a few weeks ago, and locked in most of the details in the last two weeks. So many of you have followed along on what became a bit o...
