Wow. Part II.

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 […]

Wow. Part I.

It was a good idea…until it wasn’t. Ever had that feeling?  At least I can laugh about it, right? Last Saturday morning was a 50k race on a course that was new to both Dan and myself.  It had been my idea to sign up during the spring, so I had it on the calendar.  […]

Details.

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 […]
