  • Notes and findings: 
    • I got the boys’ cold and was feeling very little motivation to do anything. I never feel run down from a cold but now understand what people are talking about.
    • I deliberately took a rest/pass day on Thursday in preparation for my 8 mile race on Saturday. I may make up the pass, I’m not sure yet
    • I’ve been eating like crap this week. No free days this weekend for this girl
    • I ran my trail race on Saturday (7.65 miles) and came in under my desired time, even with a fall and a 7 minute break as I recovered.  I am beyond happy with that!  I could have run faster but I was running with a friend who was struggling a bit.
    • This week is a bit off because I took a rest day on Thursday before my race and the Sunday afterwards. I re-figured the Sunday rest day into the overall goal of 32 workout days this period (was 33 days) as resting after a long race is advised, especially if there’s been an injury
    • Three days to the Y this week. Yay!
    • I didn’t get enough strength in this week as I prepared for the race.  Back to that next week!
    • Great week – really finished strong in the end!

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!
