All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!



It’s not a REAL adventure race, but it’s a great challenge and we’re signed up! I even got us matching shirts since we’re a team, Hottie and me! (I’ve decided to call B “Hottie” on my blog since that’s what I call him in real life. Well, that or “husband,” which isn’t as fun as “Hottie!”)

3 miles of kayaking, 3.5 miles of running, 12 miles of biking. Honestly, I’m most worried about the run part because I haven’t really run in a long time. Watch – the paddling will break me right out the gates. Ha!

There’s another race in November that we want to do, and it’s a REAL adventure race complete with orienteering (Hottie’s job). It will take at least 8 hours so we need to line up a babysitter now before we register. We’re pretty committed to it… I mean, we do already have the matching team shirts!

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. Are you going to post a photo update of your weight loss at the end of the 10 weeks? I can’t wait to see your progress! When is this race?

    • Of course I’ll post my final photo! I’m going in in an hour to get it taken. I’ve got my spray tan on, baby oil packed, hair done, and optimal outfit picked out (I’m wearing what I did at week 1 photos – makes it more evident how I’ve improved). I won’t have the photo until late Saturday night, so I’ll have my stats sooner (in the AM). I’m going to hold off posting until I have it all. I’ve essentially got weight and body fat now, but I want those measurements!

      September 6th is the race. It will be a ton of fun before heading out your way the next weekend. Which reminds me – we need to plan!!!

  2. I want to go this race! Except I have never kayaked! But sounds fun!!! I went for my second run Wednesday night and it was so hard. I hate how fitness can just disappear 😢

    • Running is hard, man! You can be in peek health and still run like shit!

      kayaking – that’s not hard! Do it while on holiday! I kayaked around Fitzroy Island while I was up north in Australia. Easy peasy!
