..But I can't wait until school starts! I mean, I love my kids more than anything, but I can only be sleep deprived for so long. During the school year I am able to sleep from 9am to 3pm (I work 7pm to 7am), but during the summer I only get to sleep for two or three hours max at a time and then get to go make medical decisions all night long. I cannot afford a babysitter in the summer, so I just struggle along as best I can, but by this point in the summer, my nerves...

Hi, I am glad to meet you all, fellow runners and mommies! I am going out the door today for six miles, which, if I actually pull it off, will be the longest I've run in the last three years! My sister and I are training for our second marathon this October; the first one was 2001 and it seems a LOT harder this time around! ( I am fatter and older, blech!) : Good running to all!
