Moving on

I finally decided to pull the plug on the good old blog.

I’ve loved to write about running, triathlon, travel and life here. Mostly I’ve loved to connect with other people writing about the same things! (And I’ve been so inspired by so many women accomplishing amazing feats, pushing their physical limits, and encouraging other women to do the same.)

My life has changed a ton in the last year, and the pace has definitely changed along with it!

Although I still love to train and will get back to racing one day, I love spending time with my baby and doing what’s right for us right now. And, this blog was never intended to be a mommy blog!

I’m walking that line between wanting to overshare Jasper’s life and not wanting to share anything online. (Of course not completely; I’ll still be on Instagram @abbykokolski!)

Maybe one day I’ll go back to blogging- with more of a training / mom / family adventures twist.

In the meantime, I’ll enjoy my bundle, disconnect a little more, be present and just embrace time.

Best wishes to every one of you- in running, triathlon, and life! Thank you for reading and making this little space of internet a fun one for me.

  1. All the best to you, Abby! I love seeing your photos on Instagram, so will keep following along there. I understand why you wouldn’t want to overshare though; when I have kids one day, I doubt I’ll post much, if anything!

  5. Abby–I totally respect this decision. I have often thought about whether or not I would have wanted a blog when my kids were really young and the answer is no. And now that my son is entering high school, I’m pulling the plug as well. There are times in our lives when we have to shuffle priorities and clearly this is one for you. I wish you all the best with your sweet little one and everything else in your life! XO

    I support you! I quit the blog a month-or-two ago. The worst part has been feeling confused about things that I know I blogged about but can’t remember on my own. Like this last weekend, I wanted to go camping at a certain spot, but I couldn’t remember the name of it – I knew that I had blogged about it and would have been able to look it up if I still had the blog. Who knew that my blog was helping my memory??
