RWS Features #24

Saturday again! This time last Saturday I was puking my guts out in Disney World. Doesn’t it sound like a magical vacation? Anyway, I am better now (I use this term loosely I still don’t feel strong enough to do serious workouts). Have you ever been so sick that when you get better you feel SO GOOD and promise never to take feeling “normal” for granted? That’s kind of where I am right now. I was able to go on a nice easy 2 mile run/walk yesterday and it really helped my mood. Speaking of which thanks for all your kind words on yesterdays blog post. I think there is a misconception sometimes that my life is all rainbows and butterflies. While I am VERY blessed, I am not always happy and things don’t always work out like I want them to, so I just kind of wanted to share my heart and what I was feeling with you, ya know, some true, real, emotion. But now that THAT’S over let’s get back to health and fitness with a little Disney thrown in, shall we?


Pavement Runner this one’s for you!

Today I want you to meet a Fitfluential ambassador friend of mine, Jessica. Jessica blogs at and is very kind and has done some great gear reviews.


1.) How/Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging with the intention of sharing what I had learned about running and to connect with other mother runners. I started up a blog on Blogger, but quickly switched to WordPress and then went the self-hosted route. I love writing, and blogging is a great way of meeting other runners and helping to encourage  and motivate them.

2.) Sum up your blog in a couple sentences:

30 Something Mother Runner is a blog about all things running-related including training, gear, nutrition, and motivation. I also write about how to balance running and family life.

3.)What do you wish to accomplish/achieve by blogging?

I would love to have a huge network of running friends all over the country and the world. It’s amazing how much you can connect with someone you have never met in person!

4.)What is your biggest healthy living accomplishment?

My biggest accomplishment to date is dropping 4 minutes from my 5K time over 2011 (PR is 21:55).


So speedy! Jessica, thank you so much for sharing with the readers. Everyone be sure to go visit Jessica’s blog and follow her on twitter @rhodymomrunner
