Getting my sea legs back.

If only I had known. Back in February, I didn’t have time to get to the pool. I was trying to squeak out a workout or two each week, but it had been hard to do that when my calendar was so full already. Going into March, I didn’t even make it to the pool […]

Layer by layer.

This has been the oddest year.  I know you all feel me on this. It has been surreal, to say the least.  And, little by little, things have been stripped away.  What I have been left with is real, and raw.  I think back to the months leading up to the pandemic, and I can […]

A Gift.

It has been an interesting 8 weeks, to say the least.  This is the 8th week of staying at home with my kids.  As I still continue to try to fully understand what is happening,  things are become more evident. At first, it was as if suddenly someone was doing a quick break-check on things.  […]

Hungry.

It’s been weeks.  Weeks, since my feet have touched the dirt of a trail.  I haven’t left the house since March 12 and it’s now April 23, 4:00 am. I have been tethered to the house, since all of the kids have been home.  I have run the same, tired loop of roadway in my […]

Time to write.

I have had a couple of people ask how the book is coming along. It had been developing well until 2 weeks ago.  Then, with the kids home and having to stay home, it took some schedule adjustments to get started up again.  Now, I have some time to write. Back in October, I decided […]

Beginnings.

Here’s to beginnings.  Last night was another one of those moments.  Let me explain. It’s easy to get stuck in a mind set.  It seems like every day we are bombarded with ideas and “norms” depending on what we see and hear.  I sometimes imagine life without social media and the internet.  I daydream about […]

The Blahs.

It’s dark and rainy this Saturday morning.  Not a whole lot is going on in the house right now but a snoring dog.  It’s been rainy and gloomy lately, and my mood has followed suit. A few weeks ago, I started having issues with my back.  It was high time, if you ask me.  I’ve […]

Fog and coffee.

It’s Christmas Eve morning.  There is a thick blanket of fog outside – no beautiful, fluffy snow this year.  Good thing Santa has Rudolph. No one is awake in the house yet, just me and the dog.  I’m just sitting here drinking coffee before the chaos begins.  Today, we start celebrating Christmas with family.  Soon, […]

FOMO. It’s real.

When I first saw someone posting about FOMO on social media, I had no idea what they were talking about.   I actually had to search for the definition because I was curious. Fear of missing out.  It’s a real thing. Back in the day, before the internet and social media, no one had any idea […]

Having fun in the pain cave.

It’s been a cold December already.  We dipped into the single digits earlier this year than in the past.  I’ll admit it, I really wasn’t ready.  Thankfully, we didn’t stay there too long, so I can’t complain. We’re also getting closer to the holidays, so there’s no racing that’s pending right now.  There’s no training […]
