I’ve made a lot of poor choices in my life {who hasn’t right?!} and one of those choices I now regret was transitioning over the past couple of years to using no fuel on my runs and bringing no water. 20 miles. hashtag #nofuel #nowater #yay only it wasn’t #yay for my body…..   The […]

I’m pretty much the worst at race recaps. I came, I ran, I finished, I ate lunch….that’s pretty much how the races I run are these days. I convinced Eric to run the half with me to force me NOT to race the race. I didn’t want to race, but I know myself a little […]

Made it through last week and feel stronger for it. Unfortunately this week has started out with a bang, literally, as Miles has a concussion and is home from school resting today. Never a dull moment around here. He is going to be fine but has to take it easy for the next ten days as […]

When my children are bad we typically take something away from them that means something to them. Today has been one of those days where Colton is a crank and then is super loving – up – down – up – down. The only positive to the pissy mood he is in, is that he keeps saying […]

10 years ago today I woke up in the apartment I was sharing with my mom. We gathered our stuff together and headed to the start line of Marine Corps Marathon. It was a morning filled with excitement and angst. Could I run 26.2 miles? Could a girl who pretended to hyperventilate to avoid running […]

Last night I felt sick to my stomach. I was silent. This doesn’t often happen. My husband asked me over and over again what was wrong. *nothing* You are deep in thought about something. Tell me. *nothing* *you could get used to me being silent right?* The reality was nothing was wrong – but my […]
