THIS Moment in Time – Hardest Four Miles of my Life


I’ve run every morning this week following a 6 miler on Saturday and a rest on Sunday. My body is shot. 19 miles in four days isn’t that much of a cumulative distance, but I usually take a rest after two days of running no matter how far (or not so far) I run in those two days. Four days in a row is tough on me, but the weather has been ridiculously beautiful! So I power on… and take breaks… at the park. You know, the park that is perfectly safe and requires none of my attention. 😁

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. Your dedication is continually inspiring.

    • Thanks! I really like running, so it’s pretty easy to stick to it. I especially love running in the evenings after dinner, but that’s not easy to do with bath time, books, etc! I think it’s been easy to stick to, also, because I was just READY last year this time (I think I started that first 10 weeks on June 14th) – It was my time to get back at it. Hottie is trying to get back at it and he’s slowly getting there… I think next week will be his time. 😉

      How’s your foot?

  2. I need a running partner like you who constantly pushes themselves! You are so great and inspiring!

    • Thanks, but it really is the only thing to do at 9:00 AM without spending money! When the weather sucks, I go to Target. 😉 If I was truly inspiring, I’d go to the gym. Ha!

      • You are a smart lady to be enjoying the beautiful weather while you have it – it’s been raining here all week and our home gym is still in storage due to our basement flood – I’m itching to get outside again! 🙂
