MomMeCation for all Supermoms!

Happy Mother’s Day to all Mommies out there!  Put your feet up, relax, and act like a queen for a day (or two!) because you deserve it!

In this fast paced, multi-tasking, high-tech world, many of us Mommies are forever running around chasing after deadlines, dreams, and our kids (literally for some!)  But, every now and then, we should allow ourselves to take a break and recharge.   (more…)

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to my iron supermom! My mom raised all seven of us kids and made it look oh-so easy. She was never athletic, but I say that caring for all of us took more guts and endurance than any marathon. Love ya, Mom!

Happy Mother’s Day to all running Mommies too (and I’m not just talking about the athletes!) I think all mothers are running all over the place constantly striving to balance family, careers, and the rest of their lives so that they can be the best they can be. No mommy is perfect, but we all try our darn best to be!

For those of you who would like to treat you Mom to a special gift, hop on over to Move or Runnr tonight or tomorrow!  To my kids, if you’re reading this, you can get me the Halo headband below…or an iPad mini.  Either one of those will do. Tsk tsk.
