This week we celebrated one year since our baby boy big boy was born.

Yesterday I ran 11 miles.

That is mind-blowing to me. The kind of thing that makes me know Philippians 4:13 is true:

I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

I was never, ever a runner before. I struggled to even finish a mile in school. I actually HATED the thought of running.

Yet, here I am, strapping on my running shoes and tackling double-digit mileage. And loving it.

I’ve had many of you ask that I write more about my running/exercise journey, especially as a mom to young children. I am NO EXPERT by any means. I am not a trainer or a medical expert. I am just a “normal” mom. But I am totally willing to share my experience and what has worked for me! I just want to know what YOU want to know!

Getting Fit as a Mom

One of the things I’ve discovered over the past year is I LOVE encouraging other moms in their fitness journeys! I wish I could go to the gym or go for a run with each of you and tell you YOU CAN DO IT, but I’ll just have to do what I can to cheer you on, and maybe help you out a little bit, from right here!


What do you want to know about my experience getting fit as a mom?

You can leave a comment here or email me at homewiththeboys at gmail dot com with your questions!

I will do my best to answer as many questions as I can in upcoming posts! {And let me know if you want your questions answered anonymously!}

Happy weekend!
