Tonia Smith commented on Duane and Jaclyn Roberson's blog post Happy Thoughts
"I think with each baby it becomes harder. It will all come back. Don't be so hard on yourself. The baby is a blessing to be enjoyed. The rest will eventually fall into place."

Duane and Jaclyn Roberson commented on Tonia Smith's blog post The tutu controversy
"I read that story and was disappointed, too. Not that I read Self, because you're right in that they perpetuate an unattainable image and give advice that creates a cycle of 'self disappointment' (maybe a new title for the magazine?).…"

Happy Thoughts

I completed my first trail run since having our son, Rowan. I pushed as hard as I could for as long as I could (no pun intended) and covered 4.4 miles. I felt really strong. But when I returned to the car and checked my new Garmin, I saw that my average mile was 13:41. I had two thoughts:#1, Seriously? Fail.#2, Seriously? Get over it. It's only been 6 weeks.I'm running a lot slower than I did before having Rowan, and I guess I thought I would bounce back a lot quicker. But, if I investigate…See More

Duane and Jaclyn Roberson commented on Nicole Drummer's blog post Lactate Threshold Explained
"If you are using heart rate as a threshold marker, will it be different on the bike vs. a run? I notice that my heart rate is much lower for the same perceived exertion on a bike, compared to a run."

Duane and Jaclyn Roberson replied to Tim Bergsten's discussion Colorado Springs couple embarks on new Adventure Racing Journey in the group Adventure Racing
"I'm glad to see you guys are local. When I looked at the event, the fancy website, etc. made me think it wasn't a local organization running it. We are definitely considering running on March 30th, now."

Getting Back

I had a goal to run the St. Patrick's Day 5K this past weekend. It was exactly 4 weeks after the birth of our second child, and I thought this would be my first race, getting back to normal. But, running has been tough this time. Maybe it's my older body or my 10 lb. 10 oz. baby, but more likely, it is my love of soaking up every little bit of baby time I can get. Because, this is it. This is our last little baby.I'm not disappointed that I didn't run the race. I am a bit overwhelmed that I…See More

Rim Rock Marathon Relay

Jaclyn writes: The Rim Rock Marathon was an amazing experience, and probably one of my favorite races this year.  Having driven through Grand Junction and Fruita to raft Ruby Horse Thief or Westwater Canyon in the past, I hadn't thought much about the Colorado National Monument, until this race.  We anticipated doing well as a relay team and were hoping for first place.  Compared to the top marathon runners, we anticipated being in the top ten or twenty.  Up until this race, we had a solid…See More

New mom tackles more than just a baby and a diaper

Jaclyn writes: Before I was ever thinking about having a baby, I remember working as a personal trainer for many women that came to me with one concern, baby weight.  After having a baby, up to five years prior, their weight had ballooned out of control and they had finally taken the time to reign in their health.  While this pattern is the product of many social issues revolving around pregnancy, I was determined to avoid this struggle.  Keeping weight off and staying healthy, are far…See More
