The Sporting the Small Stuff (StSS) blog was born out of our wedding website. In October of 2010, we got married in Brazil and maintained a website so everyone back home could stay updated on our wedding. After the honeymoon, I started blogging on the site and it eventually seemed appropriate to move the blog over to its own location. Thus, SportingTheSmallStuff.com was born.
The Original StSS
Throughout the past few years, StSS was a sports blog covering running (including minimalist running and races), martial arts (mostly kung fu), and miscellaneous adventures and excursions. When I got pregnant in 2013, I had hoped to chronicle my pregnancy, but between a full-time job, community involvement, grad school and pregnancy, I just ran out of time and I allowed blogging to fall by the wayside.
The New StSS
Now, I have the best 21-month-old daughter I could ever ask for and I’m ready to take up blogging again, but there will be some changes. First, expect a design overhaul any minute. Second, expect some changes to the content. While I am still active, it is not at the same level as before (and during) pregnancy. Priorities shift and the concept of “free time” changes after having a child, so my life looks a lot different now. Therefore, until our toddler gets a bit older, there will be less posts about running, training, triathlons, skydiving, etc. and more about parenting, life with a toddler, and life in general, with the occasional training or racing update.
For all who have been following Sporting the Small Stuff over the past few years, thank you! I truly hope you will stick around and, if you have topics you want to hear about, please let me know!
