Mommy, Marathon Mommy

Wednesday, September 16, 2009
I 'do' a marathon every week. Yep, that's me, Marathon Mommy.

I have calculated: every morning I walk my kids to school, that's one kilometer right there. Then I walk home all by my lonesome, which makes it two.

At around twelve 'o clock I walk one kilometer to take them home for lunch, which adds up to four kilometers. At one o'clock I take them back to school again and head home, which makes it six.

And then there's the final school run at three fifteen which brings the day's total to eight kilometers.

Multiply these daily eight kilometers, times five days a week, and that's forty kilometers right there! And the missing kilometers I figure I make up with running around the house and doing all the housework.

But maybe I should call myself Yoyo Mommy, because that's how I sometimes feel.

  1. Your post would be the perfect answer for the giveaway at Run Faster Mommy's blog..... I know how you feel! I wonder sometimes if I am not training for a specific race, will I still run as much and will I still be a runner??? I am new to this, so only time will tell, I know I will be a runner until my half marathon in December and I can only hope I will stay a runner for many years after that, race or no race!!!
