Just look how we've grown!

I love this blog! I love that so many wonderful, strong women have chosen to join us as contributors and that others are participating in discussions. Thanks to all of you!

There are a few additions I would like to add to our site. I'm just thinking "out loud" here, and I would love your suggestions, too.

-pictures and bios of our contributors

-a sidebar link so anyone can order their own "Marathon Mommy" car decal. I want to put up a picture of what they look like when displayed proudly on the back of a child-transporting minivan ... or what-have-you. (Polliwog, I haven't forgotten about you! Your decal is in a stamped and addressed envelop in my car. I just need to remember to put it in the mailbox.) Does anyone else want one that doesn't have one? We can even make "1/2 Marathon Mommy" decals, too. "10K Mommy"? :) No one is left out, here! One of my goals with this site is to celebrate everyone's accomplishments through mutual support, regardless of the distances or paces we each run. Running is all about "the journey" - everyone is at a different place. But we're all here to cheer each other on to our own personal finish lines.

Does anyone else have any suggestions for updates or improvements we can make? I would love to hear them.

P.S. I still haven't posted my own report from last week's marathon. Why does it seem like such a daunting task? I want to give it the time and attention it deserves, but that means it keeps getting put on the back burner. Soon! ... because I just know you are all on the edge of your seat waiting in anticipation. I have written a bit about the weekend leading up to the big race on my personal blog: www.suziepetunia.blogspot.com

I thought you were kidding about the Marathon Mommy decal. Please post a photo!

The decal looks like the header for marathon mommies

Personal profiles would be fun.

Polliwog said...

I like the profiles idea too. I would love to know a little bit more about each of you. :)

JP said...

I concur - profiles would be fun. Heehee...just typed "run" instead of "fun"...how appropriate.

I have to admit, I would love a decal and would love to see a real-life photo!

I can I be a little mushy right now? I just can't thank you all enough for being so wonderful to me. I really don't know if I'd be ready for Sunday without ya. I'm so excited!

JP said...

Well, apparently I can't type worth beans tonight. Fun/Run...etc. I meant to say: CAN I be a little mushy...

I was aiming for mushy...headed straight to DORK.

How funny.I decided to check my profile to see what I had written. It says I'm an accountant and that I live in AFgahnistan! Neither one them correct! Guess I need to do some editing!

JP said...

Well, Poky Girl...my profile says "knife thrower"...or "juggler" (I can't remember which) and I really AM an accountant. Go figure...

M&M said...

You know, pokygirl and JP, I just thought you were both being clever. :-)

I love coming to this site and reading others' experiences. As I prepare for my first 1/2 marathon I have lots of questions and would love to be able to post them. Is the contrbutor list "open to the public?"
