It is being able to find that balance that makes us supermoms. So, I ask, what is your "triathlon"? As you're knee-deep in motherhood, what are you doing to train for your own race?

Race day was full of craziness, chaos, pain, fear, doubt, mistakes, exhileration, relief, and joy! My times were 21:06 swim, 51:48 bike, and 31:17 run...I have completed my first triathlon...I am now a triathlete! This realization was something I quietly mulled over, scrubbing poop out of my son't bathtub, that very evening...another first for me, I might add. I laughed at the irony of the day being filled with two milestones, both of which being badges I could wear with honor...both being war stories I will reflect back on throughout my life...both very much highlighting that balance between me and motherhood.
