I’ve been thinking about this for a while now. The blog started a while back as a vehicle to express the MANY emotions I was going through as someone that was about to embark on a journey I couldn’t have understood at that time. Becoming a Mom
Since then I feel like the blog has been a handful of things some of which I’m not sure ever felt right including a mom blogger, a run expert, a triathlete blogger, a fitness advisor, an advice giver…the list goes on. All in an attempt to figure out who I am…
All you have to do is go back in the history to find content about all of these things.
But in the time I’ve had this blog (this blog has been around for 7 years now) things have changed. Priorities have changed.
At one point, I was trying to get clicks. I was trying to be seen by a lot of you and I’m not sure why. I think I needed that at that point in my life, At that point I was very much not my own person. In the early stages of motherhood, you are giving ALL of yourself to your children. Even if you’re doing your own things, it’s hard to feel like you. All your thoughts all your feels are dedicated to them in one way or anther.
Fast forward to now. My kids are 7 and 5. I can’t believe I’m even saying that. My life has changed. My needs have changed. I love being social with you but giving you 5 tips to a successful 5K doesn’t feel genuine anymore. Telling you how to overcome your ruts doesn’t feel like something I need to tell you. There’s a lot of other places out there you can get this kind of advice.
I tried to create a community around stroller running because there’s a need for it. B.O.B. agreed and supported me as we pushed ahead. Funny thing about that…I phased out of stroller running for the most part (as much as I hate to say it). BUT
I WILL ALWAYS PROMOTE B.O.B. because they produce the BEST stroller for active families. Make no mistake about it!
Lately I’ve been asking myself…
What’s my message?
Who am I?
What is it that I want to share?
What is it that you want to read?
It’s weird spot to be in. Life keeps moving faster and faster and in some ways, I’m still not sure who I am.
My race schedule is not what it use to be…not because I don’t want to but because I don’t have the free time like I use to.
Kids come first (most of the time)
I’ll keep the blog up and running. I’ll keep writing about the things that push me to write; the occasional race recap, kid developments, life challenges and how we’re over coming them (or not)…it’s going to be a smattering of stuff I’m sure because life isn’t just one dimensional.
So roll with me here. I’ll keep it real and hopefully you’ll come back and see me 🙂
What do you come here to read about?
