It’s easy to get caught up in things going on around you. Before you realize what’s happening, you’ve changed directions and are heading somewhere completely different than you were aiming for. Sometimes, this is a good thing – and sometimes, it’s not. When I started doing multi-sport events, it just kind of happened. I was […]Read More Finding my why.
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.
It’s Spring. It’s May. May and I have a love/hate relationship. I enjoy the springtime. I look forward to the colors, of course. But I love to see the green stuff even more. The bright green leaves give me a sense of peace, and somehow, I feel more energetic when I look out of the […]Read More Details.
Another successful attempt to involve my kids in running. These two accompanied me to their first official trail race today. It was so fun to see them take in a new experience. Aiden is what I call a reluctant runner; he balks when I suggest a run, but then he returns from his run grinning […]Read More Running Buddies.
That’s the word I choose today. Amazing. My daughter is an amazing human being. Abby just turned nine. She has constantly surprised me these past nine years. She is incredibly intuitive, intelligent, deeply spiritual, and so down to earth. She is everything I would want her to be, neatly packaged in a beautiful and wonderful […]Read More Amazing.
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 […]Read More On being a mom….
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 […]Read More Viking Dash II race report.
I run a lot with my husband. He’s my most favorite person in the whole wide world. However, I have a very special friend that I love to run with when my Dan isn’t available. This person came into my life about a year and a half ago, and she makes me a better person. […]Read More My running buddy.
Every now and then, something causes me to give pause and think. Sometimes, a situation presents itself that will change my perspective and bring up old beliefs and feelings. I like when this happens, as I feel this is a sign of growth and maturing. We have four kids. Each and every one of them […]Read More Starting from scratch.
As I sit here watching the snow fall in my chair, I am so grateful. My heart is full. Let me rewind…. It was cold this morning, but I didn’t mind. My husband and I left the house as the sun was coming up, but with the grey skies, it wasn’t exactly picture-perfect. But, hey, […]Read More Glad I did it.
