Take what you can get

My goal this winter has been to get in a “long” run on the weekend of at least six miles.

Didn’t happen this weekend.

I did get out yesterday for a blissful 30 minutes. When your parenting partner is sick all morning, you take what you can get. I ended up pushing it harder than I have lately and was happy with a quality 5K.

The weather has been unseasonably warm for the past few days, which means some of the snow has melted, leaving skiers in a tizzy. As a runner, I welcome the thaw. We get somewhere in the range of 200 plus inches a year of snow up here. I’m not worried we’ll be cheated.

Runner, Eater, Mother, Tweeter

Amy, July 2013

I'm a thirty-something suburbanite turned ruralite living in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Wife, mom of two, eater of all things delicious, and a runner. This is where I blather on about running and health. Baby Number Three will be here in November (so yes, I'm a little crazy), and I'm running through my pregnancy for as long as my body's willing and able. There's also more of me at amyupnorth.com. Read more here.


All I ask is that the sweater comes back in one piece from school picture day. With the buttons still attached. #arlocardigan #brooklyntweed

I’m an Ambassador!
