Makes you think of Dory, doesn’t it? Last year at about this time, I saw something interesting in my social media feed. Some of my friends/acquaintances had done a swim challenge. I had just done my first swim meet in a long time, and had been looking for more events to do in the pool. […]Read More Just keep swimming….
The older I get, the easier it is to admit when I’m wrong. The past few years, I have continued to learn more about myself through my interactions with others. I have also learned that spending quiet time alone really helps me focus better. As the kids get another year older, and I slow down […]Read More Learning from my mistakes.
This picture is one of my most favorite places on earth. It is a place close to home where I have spent many hours mediating, sweating, and praying. This is my home base. With so many things going on this time of year, I have to take time to go here to clear my […]Read More Remembering to forget.
Why can’t I just have more time? I ask myself this question a little too often. And it seems like I still can’t find time, even when I make the effort. I wake up earlier. I go to bed a little later. I make my to do lists…and yet, I run out of time. Most […]Read More Time.
It was a Monday. Mondays are always a mixed bag of feelings. I got the kids ready for school and out the door. I came home and did a couple of things for work and then let some dust settle. I wanted to run. I had nothing pressing. So, without delay, I changed into running […]Read More Zoning out.
I live in Ohio. Still, this time of year tends to be bittersweet to me. I love the Fall…but I know what’s coming. So, it tends to be a love-hate thing for me. I was born in the Fall. I absolutely love the colors in the Fall. I love when the air turns crisp, when […]Read More This Time of Year.
Finally finding a minute (literally, there hasn’t been a moment in the past week or so) to sit down and start writing about our evening run from a couple of weeks ago, Red Moon Trail Run. We made it home in one piece from the ultra event. Knowing that we needed to eat something, even […]Read More Wow. Part II.
I’m putting myself in time out. I’m actually pretty excited about it – the total opposite of my four year olds’ reaction. Anyone that follows my blog and knows me personally is aware of the craziness that is my life. I write these blogs to remind myself of what was going through my head during […]Read More Quiet time.
This week has been a bit rough around the edges. Lots of things floating around in my head at the moment. Let’s rewind… Last Sunday, just a few short days ago, I was scheduled to complete an Olympic Triathlon. I haven’t done this distance for about 4 years, so, needless to say, I was looking […]Read More Change.
New Moon half, quarter, and Crescent Moon 5k – this signals the beginning of summer to me. Every year, for the past 4 or 5 years (I have lost track), Dan and I have done this race. Except for one year that I can remember, the weather has always been crazy hot and humid. It’s […]Read More New Moon.
