Ha, Inside. I do have to say, now that race season is kicking off...I'm a bit bummed. I'm doing some 10ks, but this year I was going to start doing triathalons. Now, I'm a year out and wondering how I will do that training as a single mom of 3...sigh.

I did the foam roller again Saturday and OMG did it hurt!!! I don't remember it being that bad the first time I hurt it, I was almost in tears. Funny story, my S5 sensed weakness and dive bombed me on the floor and is still claiming a wrestling victory, even told grandma last night on the phone that he beat me smile. The pain is a little less everyday plus lots of ice. If adversity and pain fosters growth I'm expecting a lot of growth this Saturday...

IO - I was never a distance runner until about a year ago. I started with the couch to 5K and got hooked after about a month. Joining a running club is a great way to meet new people also. When I started last year someone told me that runners only talk about running when not running but as soon as they start running they talk about life. It's true!!!

Tallula - If I know anything about you, I'm guessing you'll find a way to do that triathalon. Have faith

Also not a runner, but fancy myself to be every time I hit the treadmill which is about 2 x every three months lol

Tallula you are sounding great. IMO, using anger as a shield and not the dreaded sword, is one of the most effective techniques to use when protecting yourself (not that I always am able to employ it myself).

wondering how I will do that training as a single mom of 3....

Dont borrow trouble from the future....you are blossoming in the here and NOW.

Your are right. If I think of everything I'm going to face, I'll be in a ball on the floor...and I"m not a ball on the floor type a gal. I'm pretty amazing...so I figure I'll find a way. Kidding. But I have amazing people in my life, so I know I have help. Right now, I need to just think about how awesome it is to be able to plop my kids in the double jogger tonight and run. The weather is awesome! But S4 could use some thinning out...

T-

You will definitely be able to do it! Since you are already a solid long distance runner, you will be able to do a Sprint Tri with your eyes closed. Probably won't even need to train much (in terms of endurance). Just attend one or two clinics on open water swimming, race transitions and equipment and you can do it.


I transitioned from running to triathlons just a little before D5 was born. I was working 60+ hrs. a week at the time, so I stuck with just a few Sprint races each season. It wasn't till a few years later that I ventured into the Olympic distance.

Then I scaled back to Sprint again when S1 was born. Then last year I didn't do any - it was way too much, but this season I am doing 2 races in late Summer. No time to do too much, but I still want to set goals and accomplish them.

Just like running - just start slow and steady. I think you will LOVE doing triathlons. The camaraderie is just incredible. Join your local Triathlon club - great social activities, training partners, clinics and events. Perfect combination of social and exercise GAL...

You are amazing, a true inspiration. Think of the example you are showing your kids. How to stand up for yourself, how not to tolerate disrespectful behavior. Plus you deserve a chance at a happy relationship, and so do they deserve the chance to be a part of that some day.

Thanks, KG!! I was a competitive swimmer growing up, so I know I can do it. I just get a little bummy thinking of working & with the kids and trying to fit in much me time. And I'm NOT buying a triple jogging stroller. My double was crazy expensive enough.

Ha. Tig. You seriously made me cry. So many moments I feel so weak, but I am strong. I deserve better, my kids deserve the WORLD!!! We will survive and thrive from this, I will make sure of it!!

So I just have to laugh and share this. I texted H a pic of the kids this morning. I kept the exchange completely about the kids, very one word. I posted on it earlier. Then I get this a few hours ago

H:How about XZY?

A baby name suggestion

I texted back a few names I LOVE and he texts this:

H: all of those names mean gay or getting his butt whipped in school. XYZ name it is!

I haven't answered. God, why did I marry this guy, ha. I mean, how is Gus a girlie name? Anywho, I want to text back, why don't we ask girlfriend #1, she picks fabulous names... FYI-her kids names are ridiculous. I won't post them, but one is like naming your kid Brick. It's a type of metal. But, alas. I went NC. Maybe I'll just name the kid myself...
