Hippie Chick

See Cynthia. See Cynthia run. See Cynthia train for a half marathon while tending a newborn, while letting her hubby study, and while the weather sucks. Run, Cynthia, run!

So the amazing TLC decided to run the aptly named 'Hippie Chick' female-only half marathon in early May. Despite the overwhelming distractions to her training schedule that left her unprepared for the race, she stuck it out and crossed the finish line.

She claims that the pancakes after the race were INCREDIBLE...which tells me that she was just really, really exhausted.

TLC has decided this is the new thing. One or two half marathons per year. I'm so proud of her.

Unfortunately, I seem to be taking tips from her incomplete training. I have a half-century on Saturday and I've only biked 12 miles 2 or 3 days per week in the past month.


  1. Wow, Cynthia is my hero. Good luck with the half-century!!! You guys are both my heroes!
