The Title & Why

I don't blog about my kids.
Recently someone asked me about it. And I didn't even have to pause... I know why I don't blog about them.

I have 3 great kids.

They do HILARIOUS stuff all the FREAKING TIME. Sometimes it's worth publishing. And occasionally, I will venture into their adventures. For example, my son is a budding Tri-athlete/MTB kid...

But for the most part, this isn't about them because they are ... part of my private self. Besides, when they are grown they can choose to blog about themselves & the HILARIOUS adventures they had as kids... but now, it's not entirely their choice, so I try to respect that.

I started this blog because... not really sure actually.

And then, a few months into it, I heard about a woman who was killed in the 9/11 attacks. Her children later found her diary and they felt they "knew her" through her diary. I figured this was a diary that I couldn't lose, or that would be locked, or that would become too large for one 'book'.

So there you go.

I changed the title of my blog from Mom to Marathoner because when I privatized my kids a bit, it demanded a new title for the blog. And now, I realize that I'm not a stay at home anything.

I'm still Neurotic. I'm a student. A Half-Ironman. And Marathoner.

Neurosis of the Student and Half-Ironmom Marathoner doesn't quite have the same ring to it though, huh?

And also, even though your own kids are funny, other people's kids aren't!
