On being a mom….

Being a mom.  There’s no job interview, but maybe there should be? There’s no training or job description?  It wouldn’t hurt to have either of those. There’s no paid vacation, no sick time, no excuses. And yet, it is THE most rewarding thing to do with your life, in my humble opinion.  We are the […]

Viking Dash II race report.

Yesterday was the first time I had run at Delaware State Park in a looooonng time.  I used to run out there for some of the local triathlons way back when.  Usually we ran close to the beach since there was one transition.  I knew there were lots of trails out there, but haven’t had […]

Silence. Quiet. Calm. Peace.  These are the things that I crave.  Admittedly, I am quite the hermit.  If you were to leave me to my own devices, I would happily stay away from the busyness of everyday life.  I am quite content to stay at home or go for a run by myself.  I love […]
