Crushing 10k Goals!

Kristin and Hubster Bellin 10k 2015

Hubster and I completed our first 10k this time last year. It was such a cool race with a strong community vibe, so we decided to make it an annual event. That was my first race that was longer than a 5k and it was tough. I remember feeling like I wasn’t going to make it during mile 5 last year! This year, we arrived with two half marathons under our belt – and I was 30 pounds lighter. SCORE.

Staying Connected

#spon: I’m required to disclose a relationship between my site and Intel. This could include the Intel Corporation providing us w/content, product, access or other forms of payment.

Every year, Hubster and I go on a kids-free vacation together. With the stress of two young children, autism, and our work schedules, we find ourselves looking so forward to that annual time as a couple. Staying connected is so important.

I knew that what I envisioned him doing was probably incorrect, but I never realized how unrealistic I was until I asked. Let’s play a little myth vs. reality. What does my husband really do during a weekend alone?

I ran the Cellcom Green Bay Half Marathon!

Ready for the Cellcom Green Bay Half Marathon

Sunday was the day. Hubster and I laced up our running shoes and ran the Cellcom Green Bay Half Marathon! I had my eyes on this half marathon for a while. The lap around the inside of Lambeau Field was very enticing! On race day, Hubster had a sore back. I had a cold. We decided we were going to make it a fun run since neither of us were at our best. Once we got to that start line, though, my competitive voice kicked in and I started telling myself we would crush our old time.

Take a day to explore places you’ve never been with your kids

We’ve lived in the same city for three years, but there are so many places we’ve never been. Last weekend, we spent a whole day just exploring new destinations with our kids and it was so much fun!

There is a coffee shop with an indoor playground for kids. YES. What a brilliant idea! It was just as fun as it sounds.

Hubster and I had a Staycation

February was…a month. Stress beyond measure and very long work hours for Hubster. We were due for a little relaxation and face time with each other and thankfully, we both have awesome parents. My in-laws took the kids last weekend and Hubster and I had a staycation. It was really fun doing things at home that we don’t normally get to do while the kids are here.
