I signed up for a race, y’all

Yay!  I finally signed up for a tri!  I signed up for the OMC Women’s Tri on September 10th.  I did it as part of a team back in 2008, but I just did the swim leg then.   So I am excited to get to do the whole thing.  And the last race I did was … Continue reading

Rock the Parkway

Well I don’t know how I managed it, but I achieved a 5k PR on Saturday.  32:44.  Not a stellar time by most standards, but for a slow poke like me, it’s pretty darn good!  And even better when you consider that I really haven’t been consistent with my running AT ALL this year! I … Continue reading

So, the munchkin is 6 months old.  Man!  How did she go from this: to this: ….in only half a year??  Seems like just yesterday that I was sitting at the doctors office talking to Dan getting all worked up about Nebraska’s 2011 schedule and then getting sent to the hospital for monitoring because oops, my … Continue reading

Retire the Bumbo…

Because the girl can sit! Ok, maybe not for very long, and not all the time, but she’s getting there!  Actually, she was doing pretty well until the dogs came busting into the room during one of their nightly WWE matches and she got distracted and fell over.  She’s getting so big, my squishy little … Continue reading

BOB is here!

Well BOB arrived on Wednesday, and it was 74 (yes, 74) yesterday, so I got to take Bridget for her first run!  I think she was pretty unimpressed.  She does like going for walks, she just wasnt nearly as excited as I was about it.  No squeals of joy or anything.  Tough audience!  But I … Continue reading

Slow start

Guess how many times I ran this week?  Zero!  I suck.  I seriously need to get my ass in gear.  But man, finding the time is HARD.  Becuase there is a cute little chubby baby at home who I would much rather play with.  I know that some day soon enough she will be totally … Continue reading

So. 2 miles.

Oof.  So, running TWO MILES when you haven’t run in a year feels like a really, really long way.  I was seriously huffin’ and puffin’ by the time I got done.  And of course, I was the only person who only ran two miles, so the only people there when I got back were Eladio … Continue reading

Like Buttah

I think this kid is ready for food.  Real Food!  Lately she has been very interested in watching us eat.  She loves to watch the food go from the plate to your mouth, and to watch your face while you chew it.  So on Sunday night, we were over at the IL’s for dinner, and … Continue reading

New year, new blog

Oh hai.  If you followed along with kctrichick, you probably noticed recently (ok, so it wasn’t just recently) that I didnt have a lot of training stuff going on to blog about.  I had good reason!  I was busy gestating a baby!  Now to be honest, I started kctrichick as a way to document my … Continue reading
