About our blog:
Making It Daily is a shared blog. In 2013, Claire, KHP and Kristen R. launched this blog as a way to track ourselves as we tackled three different 365 projects:
Claire: Wrote every day
KHP: Made art every day
Kristen R: Ran every day
We did these things every day for one full year. And now, we use this blog as a way to stay connected to another.
Although we still each carve out a little time every week to do these things, we take turns posting occasionally. We're busy working moms, partners, runners, writers, artists and more -- just trying to make it daily.
Got a passion? Join us in making it daily.

When I saw the topic for the weekly photo challenge, I immediately thought back to the post I wrote after the Boston Marathon bombing. I was proud of that a piece. Proud to tap into my feelings after such a … Continue reading
I cannot believe the last month of 2013 has arrived. I keep saying to myself, “Finally, it’s here,” while also thinking, “December is here already?” It’s a strange, conflicting feeling. Never have I recorded pieces of my life in regular snippets as … Continue reading
Expectations are tricky. We set them high, push ourselves, feel the hope and excitement of trying to meet them, only to be let down from time to time. It’s the let-down that stings. It breaks our spirit, forces us backward … Continue reading
So the other night, the hubby and I were finally relaxing on the couch after a long day of work, kid corralling, and yes, running, when I busted a move. I stretched my legs out over his lap and gave … Continue reading
“Glory lies in the attempt to reach one’s goal and not in reaching it.” — Mahatma Gandhi At the time, I thought nothing of a very casual conversation I had with a new teammate during the Colonial 200 Relay. Truth be told, I think I was just … Continue reading
