Hi there! I’m so glad you’ve taken the time to stop by Sweet Miles. Of all the places on the internet, you’ve wound up here, and for that I am flattered. My name is Sarah and I am a full time working mom of two, as well as a blogger, Beautycounter consultant, sometimes photographer, and fitness enthusiast. I wear many hats, but motherhood by far is my favorite. This blog is truly my creative outlet, and serves as a space for me to document our life in a way that most gives me joy.
My husband Adam is also a full time working parent – working in the technology start-up industry. He’s recently jumped on board to occasionally help bring another point of view to the blog. He’ll be serving up content related to all things dad life, tech, nerdism, and his own fitness journey. He’s my number one fan, my partner in crime, and the Han to my Leia. Becoming a dad sometimes get a negative wrap, so he’ll be here from time to time to encourage, support, and share a positive (and fun!) perspective.
We have two children – a beautiful daughter and a cuddly baby boy, which I often refer to as A and B. I blogged throughout both pregnancies, which you can read here or here. There’s nothing better than navigating the joys and trials of parenthood with your best friend, and so far I’d say we’re doing a pretty good job.
I love documenting our children’s adventures, milestones, and everything in between – they tend to take over this blog from time to time! When I originally started Sweet Miles though, it was a way to document my running journey, races, and overall fitness and healthy lifestyle. I covered a lot of miles, and I loved being a devoted member of the running community. (Hence the original blog name of Sweet Miles.) In my running days, I completed 2 full marathons, 7 half marathons, and dozens of short races. My marathon PR is 4:32:37 and I’ll forever have that number tattooed on my heart.
Since becoming a mom though, running is becoming less and less a priority, and instead I’m focusing on maintaining an active lifestyle, embracing my new role as a mom, and finding balance with everything I do. I’ve learned there are many miles in life, not just the miles you travel as a runner. I’m soaking up these miles, no matter how tough they are, because they truly are the sweetest.
On this blog, you will find my humble attempts at staying active and healthy. I’m living in the fast and furious season of motherhood, and most posts tend to skew towards topics of mom life. I often review fun products, share our family’s favorite recipes, document our children’s milestones, and try to motivate others by sharing my fitness journey and passion for living life well. You’ll also find occasional posts from my husband, which I believe is only fair – he’s the other half of this equation, and I love hearing things from his point of view. Being a dad, and being a mom, has changed us, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.

The sweetest miles in life are just beginning. I’d love to have you along for the ride!
