I Ran My First Half Marathon!

I remember covering the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon for the station I work for back in May 2013 and thinking, I wish I could do this. I felt hindered with my sports-induced asthma. I’ve been active since I was a kid: dance, cheerleading, gymnastics, acro, volleyball, softball…but I had to always watch my level of…

Baby Shamers

  I honestly didn’t want to talk to her, but I was at a ‘ladies that lunch’ type of event so I had to. She asked halfheartedly how I was and I said “Great! Busy as always!” with a chuckle. She then says to me, in all seriousness, “Yeah, I just had a kid so…

Cupid’s Undie Run 2016!

February is generally associated with love because of Valentine’s Day, and this month one of the greatest love’s of my life came into the world-my niece Khloe Olivia was born on February 4th! I am over the moon about her and can’t wait to hold her when I get to visit my family soon! Then…

Life With Leah* In 2013

A fun, more fearless 2013 is a great (though very Cosmo way) of describing this past year. Entering the new decade, I feel more enlightened and proud of what I’ve both succeeded and failed at. One of the absolute biggest highlights of the year was finding out I’m going to be an Aunt! Khloe will…
