My New Book - Running With Mommy!

Friends, please excuse the very lengthy hiatus from this blog! While 2020 didn't bring a lot of running news without there being any races to report on, I spent a lot of my year running, and much of that running with my daughter. Our time together on the trails were some of my best memories in an otherwise lacklustre year.

I have an exciting announcement about a children's book that I have authored and illustrated. Introducing Running With Mommy. I am very proud of this project and hope that you will check it out. If you do happen to pick up a copy, please let me know what you think!

It began as a gift for my daughter, a way to document our time together, and it's turned into a project I am eager and excited to share more widely. 

Realizing that my earliest childhood memories don't go further than when I was 3 or 4 years old, I have been trying to come up with creative ways to preserve our memories for my daughter to look back on as she grows up.  It is sad to think that all these wonderful memories I have with her right now, she may not remember them unless we make that conscious effort. So, yes to photo albums and written word, of course. But this project goes beyond, combines those ideas together, and the result is a product of my artistic expression.  It brought me tremendous joy to put this together.

This book combines my passion for running, for the visual arts, and children's literacy with my absolute head over heels love for being someone's Mommy. I hope you enjoy reading!
