    2016 Shenanigans (So Far)

    Buenos dias, amigos! Remember that thing I sometimes do but haven’t mentioned in ages called trail running? Yeah—I still do that. A lot, actually. And I’m going to use this week to play catch-up on everything that’s happened in my running world over the past few months. Not because I think you care, but because I want to show this to my offspring and say, “Look how cool I was back in the day!” And they’ll roll their eyes and go, “We get it, The Mom,” as they fetch me my water because my legs are too tired to function.

    Twers on the Town and the Alabama Auto Show

    Happy Friday everyone! I’ve been up since 4:30 a.m. waiting for my baby birthday-stealer to arrive from Jersey, and I am pumped! I have an exciting and terrifying and exhausting and fun-filled weekend ahead—I’ll be doing the Run for Kids 12-Hour Challenge (my longest race ever!)

    Well friends, I have decided to make my trail race comeback in the coolest way possible—next Saturday I’m doing the Run for Kids 12-hour Challenge and raising money for children with cancer to go to camp. Why is this race so special, you ask? David and Mary Jo Tosch of Southeastern Trail Series donate 100% of proceeds to Camp Smile-A-Mile—an organization that provides year-round camp services for kids with cancer, their families and siblings, and cancer survivors. Tosch started Run for Kids in 2011, basing it off the popular Ride of Love. Every year since then, Run for Kids has grown and donated more money—last year they raised over $8,000! Y’all. I…
