Welcome to Mutts, Munchkins, and Marathons

Balancing dogs, kids, life, and my obsession with running!

It’s Monday and that means “Munching Monday”! I have another recipe that is chock full of superfoods (kale, chickpeas, and quinoa); is meatless, tastes delicious; and even the kiddos and hubby will like it! That’s good news for you mother runners out there. This recipe is also pretty easy to make and takes relatively little […]

As a runner, I have acquired a lot of running-related materials. Whoever said running is the most expensive, free sport out there, hit the nail square on the head.

I know…It’s been awhile since my last post. If you’re a mother, you know that things tend to get in the way and priorities get shifted about.
