Suddenly schooled in H1N1 reality at my children's school

My daughter’s face was buried in a pillow she grabbed off the couch. It was Sunday night. We had just finished watching a news segment about the kids’ school. A reporter stood in front of the building looking properly furrowed as she gave the grim news: The H1N1 flu had arrived in our community, infecting […]

I grabbed a coworker of mine by the arm last week and pulled her into the bathroom with me. There was something I wanted her to see, and lifting my shirt up at her desk just seemed like a rude thing to do to everyone who surrounded us. It was my bellybutton. It has slowly […]

There is no vaccine for fear, and it’s contagious

[photopress:soup_1.jpg,thumb,pp_image]Last week, I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the SOUP! event for The Colorado Children’s Immunization Coalition (CCIC). SOUP! as you may have guessed is an acronym. It stands for Shots Offer Unrivaled Protection. But, there really was real soup involved, too. Ten top restaurants in the Denver area provided samples of their best […]

Last fall, I posted here at Mile High Mamas about my first sprint triathlon and how I’d caught the competitive bug. Granted, I was pretty competitive already, but only where it came to Scrabble games. Athletics, not so much. But I’m really excited to begin this year’s triathlon season, starting at the end of April […]

This is our fourth winter in Colorado, and I have yet to hit the slopes. I ski – not well, but I do ski. I was never one of those toddlers, flying down the mountain at supersonic speeds, devoid of fear. Instead, I learned to ski as a teen, on a winter break trip to […]

BornFit Giveaway for Active Mamas!

[photopress:BornFit.jpg,full,pp_image]Last month, my neighbor Monica and I took our babies hiking. She looked like she had just stepped off The Runway for Cute Activewear while I wore a scruffy pair of yoga pants. “I bought this skort last year from my friend’s company,” she raved. “What company?” “BornFit! Have you ever heard of them?” As […]

When we moved to Colorado in 2005, one of our first purchases was a set of bicycles. I got a comfort bike, Kyle got a hybrid, and we started riding on the Cherry Creek trail. Kyle had always been a recreational runner, and when he heard about the local rec center’s annual sprint triathlon, he […]

How a Pigeon Saved My Toosh

I have been going to my massage therapist once a month (OK, sometimes twice a month) since I was pregnant with Declan. That makes it like 6 years now. And my main complaint has always been my derriere. Specifically the *side* of my rear end, nearly around to my hips, deep inside my glut muscles. […]
