Moms are busy people. I don’t know a single one who says things like, “Wow, if only I had more hobbies to take up all this leisure time that I have,” or, “I’ve binged every show I’m interested in and feel completely up-to-date with all pop culture references.” So, because I live in a perpetual state "keep up," I simply don’t have time to do all the things I want to (and sometimes need to do) including but not limited to working out. This why I have some very specific questions for the mom who manage to run everyday.
I know, I know. Running is great for my own health and wellness and it’s super important and I’ll feel better and I’ll be setting an example for my son and I should just do it and make it a routine and blah blah blah. Believe me when I say, I hear you." However, when there are deadlines to be made and chores to be done and meals to be prepared and diapers to be changed, it’s hard to switch into the mindset of, “Hey family, I’m out. See you in a few.”
So, if any moms out there have this under control — or simply just a loose grasp that still ends with you waking up in the morning and running an untold number of miles — you know where to find me. I’m all ears, and eagerly awaiting your replies to the following questions.
