One Year

Tomorrow will mark the one year anniversary of the the day my dad died..the day he died and I didn’t know he would die and I wasn’t there and I couldn’t do anything about it.  He took his last breath with my mother holding his hand, while my brother and I desperately raced to be … Continue reading

2015: A Memoir in Moments

I know a new year doesn’t really change things.  And 365 days is both long and short in terms of time and space and all that can happen or not happen.  There’s no way to possibly keep all the promises you’ll make, or see all your plans through.  There’s no way to fully anticipate all … Continue reading

Chicago Marathon Recap…Finally

I fell off the face of the earth for a bit…at least in the blogging world.  It’s been just over a month since I ran the Chicago Marathon, but it feels infinitely longer.  Six weeks (nearly) somehow feels like six months.  I’ve been having a hard time getting back on track with workouts, and just finding … Continue reading

Vacation Recap: Portland (the #cantstopwontstop tour)

Hi friends! I’m back!  I actually returned from vacation Thursday of last week, but I’ve been taking my sweet time getting back into the groove of things, which includes, as I may have mentioned in, oh, every other blog post, figuring out how to get into a routine of blogging!  Still working on that one, … Continue reading

I know…I know…

I totally promised to post, like, weeks ago…I’ve been slacking!  I’m not sure why I haven’t posted lately.  Sure, I’ve been busy, but I could’ve squeezed it in.  I guess I just wasn’t up to it and wanted to spend my free time doing things like playing Scramble on my phone, or dreading speed work, … Continue reading

Race Recap: Amana Colonies Back Road Half Marathon

Happy Monday!  How was your weekend?  Are you ready to kick off another week?  It’s the last full week of summer vacation for the kiddos around here and I’m kind of sad about that.  I look forward to the routine of school, but not so much the rigidity of the schedule and enforcing homework time … Continue reading


Finally!  It’s Thursday!  Every single day this week I’ve thought, “It really feels like it should be Thursday.”  Oh boy. I think my Monday long run just threw my week off.  And maybe cutting back sugar.  I’m all kinds of crazy this week, in a full on funk!  Plus, I’m running a race on Saturday, and … Continue reading

August Challenge

Hi friends!  So….so much for getting back to regular blogging!  To be honest, I just wasn’t feeling it!  I must have been in some kind of funk.  I’m hoping I can get my mojo back and find my groove again. Let’s catch up!  First thing’s first, I ran 12 miles on the treadmill today.  The … Continue reading

99 Countdown Workout

Howdy y’all!  What’s shakin’??  How have you been?  Anything cool happen since my last check in? The end of last week was a bit crazy, but I got some great workouts in, including a KILLER that I’ll share today!  I worked all weekend, but did squeeze in an 8 mile long run before hitting the … Continue reading
