Temporarily Blind.

Ever done something “blind”?  What does that mean, you ask…..Going into something without all of the details.  Deciding to jump in without knowing where you’ll wind up.  Or something like that…. That’s how I’ve felt lately.  I made a few decisions in the past couple of months that took me out of my comfort zone.  […]

Too Many Lightbulbs.

Back when my nephew was much younger, my sister and her family were traveling and happened to be at an airport. It was very bright, and chances are they were traveling sometime in the evening when the kids were usually in bed. My nephew seemed irritated by the brightness of the terminal, and was dancing […]

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 […]

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 […]
