One week after we planned (she takes after her mother’s side of the family), Felicity Jean Reaves was born on Monday, July 21 2014 at 11:27 p.m.
2014 is a strange year for resolutions. Being pregnant, the usual fitness resolutions — stay thin, lose weight, break new personal records — aren’t going to fit in 2014. I told my mom that the only resolution I have is that I want to have a healthy baby this summer, and she told me that’s […]
So Aislinn may have written about a video that Tony shot late last week of our pug Scoop wearing booties. Here’s to hoping the pug makes it big time.
One of my fears when I subscribed for Runners World a few weeks after I started the Couch to 5K was that I would be really into it for the first couple of issues and then I would be sick of running and it would just come in my mailbox and shame me for not […]
This will be/has been a weekend of firsts. It was a first for Scoop and Georgia — their first race! It was a 5K held on the waterfront in downtown Bangor to raise money for building the Maine’s first domestic violence shelter that can also accommodate pets.

I have a bet with myself that I can finish this blog post before Tony can finish his article for tomorrow’s paper. Me: “What’s the story you’re writing, honey?” Tony: blah blah blah Paris Norway town politics welfare blah blah I’m so glad to have him back. He was in Arizona visiting his dad […]
1. After feeling sick for a week or so, I was back with a vengeance on Wednesday. 7 mile run, 1 mile swim, 23 mile bike. It was like my Saturday because I have to work on Saturday (and have a race on Sunday) so I might have laid it on hard. It was awesome. I went […]
I haven’t blogged in a few days because Tony, my sister Jean and I spent an amazing holiday weekend at our friends Mike and Sally’s camp in Rangeley this weekend. The mountains were so beautiful, I just didn’t get enough last weekend. I want to enjoy my last moments of the weekend with as little […]
