I’m so excited about this month’s Mother Runner! Smitha is a fellow Rock ‘n’ Blogger and is quite accomplished for the short time she has been running! I absolutely love her parenting advice and am so impressed for how she is able to fit in running into her very busy schedule!

Number of years running: 3
Names + Ages of Kids: Drew – almost 9; Serena – 6.5
Favorite Distance to Run: 10 miles. It is the perfect starting and ending point for Half Marathon training.
Favorite or Most Memorable Race: I would have to say the LA Marathon. Even though it was my slowest marathon to date, it was so exciting to run thru Hollywood and Beverly Hills and end at the Santa Monica Pier.
Best Running Accomplishment: That I have only been running since I was 35 but I have already done 14 Half Marathons and 3 Fulls.
Best Parenting Accomplishment: Hearing people tell me what good kids I have. Must be doing something right!
Advice for how you fit running into your busy schedule: I am a full time attorney and I fundraise heavily for the Epilepsy Foundation. So with limited time, I have to schedule runs like appointments and mostly fit them in during my lunch hour.
Best parenting advice you’ve gotten: Pay attention. To their friends. Their words. Their expressions. Their hearts. Their moods. Just always pay attention.
