Racing Momma's

Since we moved up to North County and I joined Stroller Strides it has been somewhat life changing.  I know that sounds a bit dramatic, but it really has.  Sometimes I try and think where would I be if I didn't meet all these amazing ladies and I know exactly where.  Completely out of shape, a lululemon free credit card bill, and probably pulling my hair out because the kids would be driving me crazy in the mornings.  So to say the least, these ladies make me a way better Mom and Wife (well, maybe not wife, don't think Jake is too thrilled with all the Lulu purchases...haha!!)

For the past few months a group of us girls have been training for the La Jolla Half Marathon.  We have a nice break from the kids and hubbies for about 2 hours on the weekends when we do our long runs together.  After months of training, completing a 15K back in March, race day was finally here.  

Most of us had done a half marathon before so first time nerves weren't there, but it had been close to three years since I did my last one, so I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous. The race was definitely no joke and was a tough 1/2 marathon.  I wanted to stop and walk several times during the race and I'm pretty sure I lost feeling from the waist down by mile 10, but for my friends and all their encouragement I was able to run the whole way.  We all finished with great times and just doing it all together was the best part.  I'm very lucky to have met such an incredible group of moms.

Now, on to the Camp Pendleton Mud Run.


  1. So proud of you Nicky! You're amazing!! ps-so obsessed with Lulu too. How can you not be?!?!

  2. The run looks like fun! But where is the mud? Great group of friends!
    Nicole, keep up the good work!
    Love, Suzie
