1. How would you describe your virtual 5K training now you're so close to the finish line?

K:  It has definitely been up and down with three kids, 5 and under, but right now, I feel like I can definitely do this final push before the race. In the last two weeks, I've had the flu, a sinus infection and an ear infection, so training has taken a backseat to, well, breathing. But I'm feeling almost 100% and I am ready to push it to the finish line! I am so thankful for Erin. She has been such an amazing friend and support system through all of this, and I know would never want me to quit.

E: It's been a rollercoaster. It started out on a downhill, then I felt that I was definitely on an upswing, now I'm back on a downhill after a bone spur and a resurgence of plantar fasciitis and sesamoiditis. It's definitely been a journey! There are times that I felt like I'd fully recovered from injury and was making a comeback and times--like yesterday--that I stopped running and had to fight back tears on this run. I am thankful that I have Keli in my corner during this virtual 5K, otherwise I might lose my mind.
2. Are you aiming for a specific finish time?

K: A sub-30 would be so awesome since I haven't been able to put as much into this training as I would have liked, but, you know, just crossing the finish line will be pretty great.

E: I'm not. I was originally, but with everything going on with my feet (which I would like to state, for the internet database record here, are really big jerks), I'm just aiming to get across the finish line. I'm trying to not be too disappointed about this, because I was really hoping to come close to my previous 5K PR, but I know there will be other races.

Erin's 5K raceday outfit consists of "my favorite Athleta capris (they're amazingly comfy) and my Team Tommy t-shirt. I normally don't run in cotton tees, but this is the epilepsy walk for my son, so I have to match the rest of the team and proudly wear his name!

3. Arms in the air, fist pump, or leprechaun jump; How will you celebrate when you cross your virtual finish line?

K: Fist pump! I'm running a local Race for Adoption 5K where 100% of the proceeds will go directly to fund a local family's adoption dream. So I'll be fist pumping for adoption as well as fist pumping for Erin and Team Tommy. I wish I could run the Race for Epilepsy with Erin since my daughter is also epileptic, but I will be there in spirit.

E: Well, thanks to my feet, jumping is most definitely out! Because I'm running in an epilepsy walk in a team formed for my son who has epilepsy, this is always a moving experience for me. Last year, I spent a lot of time with tears in my eyes and crossed the finish line teary-eyed, smiling and fist pumping for all those kids who continue to beat epilepsy each year. I imagine I'll do the same this year.
4. How do both of you plan on toasting each other for all your hard work?

K: A virtual margarita -- and I think we each deserve to buy the AMR Sole Sister tee after the last couple of months! We are truly Sole (and soul) Sisters.

E: I keep thinking Keli and I need to buy AMR Sole Sister shirts for the day that we finally run a race together (I'm holding out hope this can happen soon). This might be a good way to toast each other, but we'll probably rehash the past weeks via text and hopefully share a virtual margarita. We've both earned it!

  4. This ultimate guide to becoming an Potty training expert.

    Between Alicia and me, we tried stickers; M&Ms, singing toilets, micro-managing her, and even letting her run
    around naked for a few hours. Potty training can be a subject of angst for both
    children and parents alike, but alas it is necessary in your
    child becoming more independent and capable of handling their business, pun intended.
