Blessings

I had just a short, slow, and easy six miler this morning, and I am down to "half strength" core/strength workouts now that taper has started. It was cold, but the sun was shining and I got to run with Josh this morning (since we have big kids home thanks to spring break) and it always makes me super happy to get out and run with him by my side. It's a perfect way to start the day.

Great picture of your kids. Oh, by the way, spoiler alert!

(You have already made it to the olympic qualifier in 2016, just the illusion of time is in the way.)

The other day I was looking for a good mom running blog to follow...months ago I had come across your helpful shoe review on the Brooks Pure Flow (I love them too) but had trouble finding the blog again, then my issue of RW came yesterday and there it was! Way to go and good luck in Boston. I look forward to reading your posts. (I'll be running Boston in 2013):)

Wow! You are an amazing woman, Erin! I learned about you through Rick, who BTW is my #1 coach, and terrific friend. I hope I get to meet you in Boston. I'll be running my ninth consecutive Boston and I started at age 41 after four kids! Best wishes to you, and get psyched :) I know your husband and kids will be there for you along the way.

LOVED the article; going to read it more in detail when I have more time tonight because it is just an incredible story and I want to take it all in. Love the picture of the kiddos too - what awesome smiles :).

Got my new Runner's World in the mail. Your pictures and story are so, so awesome!!!!!

I told my wife and the gaggle of running friends "I know her!"

I can't think of anyone more deserving of that write-up. You are amazing.
