I miss my Me Time

4 days ago


I do the school run running. It's efficient, and it's a great way to squeeze my run in to my day.

But there's one big drawback: I've lost my private, quiet time.

Running used to time for just me
Running used to be special time just for me, myself and I. A time do do something just for me. A time to NOT be the mom, and just be me.

When I take the kids to school running, I'm still a mom. A mom who's running, but a mom nonetheless. 

And I miss the solitude of running on my own. Especially since my two sons insist on telling me all about Pokémons and Minecraft.

The Silver Lining
And that's where the silver lining comes in. Listening to their stories about Pokemon and Minecraft, makes me run faster so I can continue with my own story.


Clothes personas: mom, runner and kid

2 weeks ago


As a mom I dress very differently than I do as a runner.

Mom clothes versus running clothes
For one thing, as a runner I wear this kind of bodywarmer thingy. That's a piece of clothing I wouldn't be caught dead in as a mom. But it's so very handy! Another thing I don't wear as a mom, are tights. In my life as a mom I wear long skirts. And I prefer my legs bare. And the running skirts I wear as a runner, I consider way too short in my life as a mom!

There are some similarities too though. Both as a mom and as a runner I like to dress comfortable. I don't like my clothes too tight.

My kids' clothes
When it comes to my kids' clothes I'm sad to say they dress themselves. When they were small I liked to dress my daughters in cute little dresses. Like the ones in the  Miss grant winter range for Christmas.

Teenagers pick their own clothes
But now my girls are 14 and 18 and all they want to wear are those awful skinny jeans! I'ld prefer their taste in kids' clothes to be more elegant and romantic. I would love to see my fourteen year old dressed in the pink top at the top of this post!

It's part of letting go
But I guess that's part of them growing up. And it's good to see them develop their own tastes. It's all part of letting go and letting them run free!

And the way they dress is part of who they are. Just like the way I dress both as a mom and as a runner represents different aspects of me!

I just wish their taste in clothes was a bit more to my taste.

I can pass that

3 weeks ago


As a runner I have one big issue: I don't like any people in front of me. And that's very unfortunate, considering my pace.

Elderly lady on crutches
Whenever I see someone further up the street or path, I get this urgent feeling I have to pass them. Last Saturday I was running, when I spotted an elderly lady on crutches.

'I can pass that!' I thought triumphantly.

So I started to make a run for it. But it was only after what seemed an interminable distance I could pass her by. And once you pass someone, you can't immediately stop running.

You can't just stop

You have to look as if you're just breezing by, no effort at all. Because otherwise you look like one of those runners who can't stand to have anyone in front of them.

So I ran a respectful distance, and then collapsed on the ground.

But at least I passed her!

Even though  I almost passed out from the effort it took me.
