You probably already read Lizzie Heiselt's Mother Runner blog because it's a daily fat-free treat, but if you don't you should and to start off you could read today's post:

I was having a hard time getting back into running after nursing my aching feet for so long so I took the age old advice of exercising with a friend... except this advice never works for me since it is hard enough to get out the door with two little ones as it is and coordinating that with a friend or two = impossible for me (for some reason).
So, I did the next best thing and started using my buddy Lizzie as my own personal work-out log. It was so much fun. Here she is modeling the very shoes she got me interested in buying- in the very color and style I want! We met in Hawaii, we have boys the same age, do a lot of the same stuff, she has the Masters degree I would kill for from the University I would kill to go to (Masters in Journalism and Creative Writing from NYU. Yeah. It makes me feel all tingly inside just typing that.), she lives and runs in NYC now, and is just straight up cool.
Here's some of our correspondence from back then. Sorry for the flagrant disregard of proper grammar and syntax... I was just emailing off the cuff.
Writing her really helped me get out the door... as much, if not more, than buying aqua leggings. If that kind of insanity gets you out on a run too then dash on over to your nearest Forever 21 and get yourself a pair at like $4 a pop, but sorry, you'll have to find your own Dear Lizzie!
