Run The Hill

So the marathon training is going well.  I'm getting really quick on the flats but hills ugh. I am not a fan of running hills. They are a necessary evil.

A necessary evil.  Boy Wonder has so many of them in his life. OT, ABA, ST, PT. Making him speak if he wants anything. Interruption of stimming and self injurious behaviors. 

When he was being taught to go up a flight of stairs foot over foot, I kept saying, "Come on Baby! You can do it! One foot in front of the other!"
So as I run my necessary evils, I keep telling myself, "one foot in front of the other." I'll get myself up  those hills just like Boy Wonder.


  1. what a perfect analogy. You will get up those hills together. I wish I had your running (and parenting) stamina. You inspire me :)

  2. Yes, perfectly written. Thinking of you and sending a big hug. And cheers! xo

  3. So AWESOME! I had no idea you were training for a marathon! You are going to rock this! Hopefully I'll get in via the lottery so I can be there at the finish cheering for you... "Go Jugs! GO! Go Jugs! GO!!!" ;-)

  4. @Doug who says you'll finish first? Never underestimate an Autism Mama on a mission.

    Thanks for your support and encouragement.


    PS J does not stand for Jugs. :D
