Tomorrow is March!! Say WHAT?! I remember as a child time moving slower than molasses. One year was an eternity. Now at 33, time is moving faster than I can say time. I’m praying that it’s just the season of life I am in. I’ve been working on intentionally keeping our schedule as unscheduled as possible, […]

At the end of 2015 I set out to make some intentional changes in my life. I wanted to be more giving of my time, calmer, happier, healthier, more considerate, and do more to make a difference in the lives of others. Instead of starting January 1, 2016 I set out to get a running […]

What runner hasn’t seen more than their fair share of disgusting porta-pottys?! The ran out of toilet paper porta-potty. The someone obviously had a momentary lapse in eye sight and completely missed the bowl port-o-potty. The holy cow – what did that guy eat for dinner last night – porta-potty. The this honey bucket hasn’t […]

I got my butt in gear this morning and squeezed in a Jillian Michaels DVD before taking Colton to school. He was more than happy not to have me telling him what to do and I was more than happy to try to get back in the habit of getting my butt kicked by Ms. […]

Monday: The best day of the week or the worst day of the week, all depending on how you look at it. This morning’s run had promise. I put on my new Brooks Run Happy shirt and grabbed my phone. I don’t typically listen to music, but today I wanted it. The first song that […]

It’s another snow day in my neck of the woods. Compared to the 32 inches {according to some sources – 40 inches} we got with the last snow storm, a couple seems like nothing at all. I don’t mind the dusting and really I enjoy snow days at home with my little people. I slept in, […]

I don’t know about you but I am ready for old man winter to pack up his bags and head elsewhere. I’ve endured {or that’s what it feels like anyways} enough cold long runs to last a lifetime. As I write this I’m checking the weather because there is snow in our forecast – again. […]

I post a lot of selfies on my instagram page. Not because I like looking at my face all the time, seriously I don’t – there isn’t even one solo selfie on my personal instagram page, but because those posts get the most likes. Hear me out….. I’m always dumfounded when I post a picture […]

Hi running friends! We experienced the storm of a lifetime this past weekend. We have essentially been snowed in since mid day last Friday! Here are some pictures I took during the storm and after…   TODAY ONLY all tanks are on SALE for $19.99 at – this is the lowest they have ever been! I’m […]

Happy 2016 my friends! I can’t believe it’s already the 13th day of this year. I had every intention of posting here every day in January. January is a big month in the health, fitness and running world and I wanted to be a part of that, but life has gotten in the way – […]

I happen to LOVE a lot of things…. I also happen to like to ramble as well as share what I like/love. I’m sure my friends are thankful I have a blog now, before 2009 they got a lot of emails. Hey did you see this? Oh this is cool, thought you may like it. Now […]

I really really don’t like dwelling on runs that didn’t go my way. I put them as far out of my head as I can, as fast as I can. Runners have to have a short memory when it comes to some things and a long memory when it comes to others. I don’t like talking […]
