Summer Camps at The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati

Registration is now open for the 1-week long themed summer camps at The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati.

No audition is required and it’s for a variety of ages and experience. Sessions are available for 6-7 year olds, 8-10 year olds, and 11-14 year olds each weekday from 9am to 4 pm at the TCT facility on Red Bank Road.

And get this, it’s just $275 per week and $250 for additional kids and that breaks down to only be about $8 an hour. It’s such a great deal! It’s less expensive than daycare and nannying, plus they’re learning valuable skills and lifelong memories.

Before and after care is also available for all 7 weeks of summer camp. You gotta register now though, mommas, because sessions fill up fast. Only 25 participants are accepted in each age group for each week, and all of the sessions completely sold out last year.

You can learn more about these amazing summer programs here at The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati on their website thechildrenstheatre.com.

Support the Heart Mini March 10!

“I didn’t think I’d be able to do that… but wow, I just did.” I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said that to myself in my 20+ years (how am I old enough for that?) of long-distance running. It’s honestly what keeps me coming back, and I reference it a lot in other parts of life. Between the weather, work, kids, knee/IT band issues (and, and, and) I’ve had every excuse to throw in the towel on my big goal of running three 1/2 marathons in the next three months. I’ve just been doing elliptical for the past couple weeks so I was nervous about whether or not I’d be able to do the 10 mile run I needed to do this week (let alone find the TWO hours, daylight and decent weather). Yesterday it happened. It started off great, but after having to take a few stretch breaks I was starting to feel disappointed in myself and my body. On that last stretch break though, I realized I was just about done with this big long run that felt impossible to plan, let alone physically do. I looked around at my favorite stretch of farmland on my route and I was absolutely overcome by gratitude. I was saying it again, “I didn’t think I’d be able to do that… but wow, I just did.” ❤️

42nd Heart Mini

The American Heart Association will host its annual Heart Mini and accompanying events March 9 and 10 at the Duke Energy Convention Center.

“The Heart Mini is Cincinnati’s largest single-day fundraiser and hometown favorite of more than 40 years,” explains Lori Fovel, Communications Director of the Cincinnati American Heart Association. “Each year, close to 30,000 registrants come together to participate in a heart healthy exercise and raise lifesaving funds to fight off the No. 1 and No. 5 killers – heart disease and stroke.”

According to Fovel, the theme this year is “Mini not Mini,” meaning that the impact of the Heart Mini is anything but mini with its 30,000 participants and $3M fundraising goal.

The Heart Mini is a two-day event that features activities for guests of every age, including the ½ Marathon, 15k race, 5k race, 2k kid’s race, 5k heart walk, 1k Steps for Stroke, a health and fitness expo, and a kid’s fun run.

Festivities for the Heart Mini kick off at 9 am on Saturday, March 9, at the Duke Energy Convention Center with the Health and Fitness Expo presented by Worldpay. This time frame is also when runners and walkers can pick up their packets.

Then, at 12 pm, is the Kids Fun Run for little ones ages 7 and under presented by Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

Everyone will be getting down to business on Sunday, March 10, in downtown Cincinnati. At 7:30 am starts the Medpace 15K Heart Mini and St. Elizabeth Heart ½. The UC Health 1K Steps for Stroke starts at 9:15 am and the Ohio National Financial Service 5K Heart Race starts at 10:30 am. The 2K Kid’s Race begins at 11:30 am and the Mercy Health 5K Heart Walk is at noon.

Fovel says there are a lot of events supporting the American Heart Association leading up to the Heart Mini in March. To learn more about those events and to register for any of the races or walks for the Heart Mini, click here.

Watch below as I train for the Heart Mini and share a little about “my why” for choosing to compete in this race!
