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.

I finished out the week — this morning, actually — with an 8-mile easy run. This was my last long run until the half marathon, which is just one week away. The week was good, but I had a lot … Continue reading
And so it begins: The taper. I had my last long run yesterday — another 12-miler. One of my running partners has a bum hip and another had planned to join me, but she had car trouble and wasn’t able … Continue reading
Another busy week in my house, but I’m juggling the running — mostly. I had to cut Tuesday’s speed work short. My 7-year-old had to test for her next tae kwon do belt, so I took her that evening and … Continue reading
Let me be clear: I am not the speed demon. If you’ve been following along, you know well and good that I am not the speediest of runners. But my 7-year-old? The girl is fast. So fast, in fact, that … Continue reading
I was all set to write about the low mileage week I’m having. My plan was to confess that I haven’t stuck to my training schedule because of mental and physical fatigue; I was going to ponder why I’ve hit … Continue reading
