Soooo…. let’s say you had to travel somewhere that was roughly 500 miles away from your home with a 1.5-year-old child. Do you fly or drive?
Okay, let’s look at those options a little closer now:
If you fly:
How do you deal with a car seat once you’ve arrived? Do you check one? And if you check one, how do you deal with the car seat, luggage and the kid? And then installing the car seat into a car on arrival, while trying to make sure that toddler doesn’t run away or do something else to endanger herself?
If you drive:
How do you keep a toddler entertained in the backseat of a car for hours on end when they face backwards and don’t watch TV?
These are questions keeping me awake at night and causing me inordinate amounts of stress right now.

- Why I ran a marathon, Qualified for Boston and May never race again
I shared this on Twitter & Facebook, but it’s worth repeating. It really resonated with me. I haven’t been feeling a bug to be a racer, but I am still a runner. But it seems like so many people think the two have to be entwined.

I wrote a post on Medium!
- I ran a 5K on New Years Eve… with the stroller. Yet I haven’t thought of it as a race, just a fun run. I don’t even know my time. Still debating if I even need to write a race report… because, well…. it wasn’t a race to me!
