A Little Girl, A Big Forest, And Finding The Perfect Christmas Tree

As a couple, Bill and I have never gone out and cut down a Christmas tree.  For several years, we purchased our Christmas tree from a nursery, but then we started buying them from our local volunteer fire department.  I reasoned that the fire department would surely sell the freshest-cut trees in town.  Looking back, […]

Obscure Words Runners Can Appreciate

Way back in the early days of my blog, I planned to write a post defining the many words, acronyms, and phrases we runners use that not just everyone understands. You know, like bandit, taper, bloody nipples, splits, LSD, two a days, BQ, the wall, or training cycle, but I quickly realized that had been overdone by […]

Here’s What’s Up

Ten days ago Bill and I headed to Blacksburg for a Friday night Virginia Tech game against North Carolina State.  Blacksburg is our home-away-from-home, and we always have so much fun when we’re in town.  Our first order of business was drinks and dinner at Cabo Fish Taco!   Friday morning we hit our favorite […]

Something Besides Running?

Holly from HoHoRuns tagged me to answer some fun non-running questions.  Her answers were quite entertaining, and I hope to make mine half as fun…   What is something people might be surprised to learn about you?

Lessons I Learned While Camping

Until a couple of weekends ago, I hadn’t slept in a tent for years.  During our early years of marriage, Bill and I enjoyed seeing our beautiful country on a couple of different cross-country camping trips and then another tour of the Pacific Northwest, south to San Francisco, and back to Utah.    After our […]

Life Lately

It’s been forever since I wrote about random stuff going on!  It seems like all of my recent musings have been about training, healthy recipes, race or trail run recaps, and of course Wednesday Word.  So outside of those things what have I been up to lately?  If you follow me on Instagram, you might […]

I wish I was the kind of writer that could leave you laughing hysterically at with me – so much so that you would pee your pants.  But enough about bodily fluids, there will plenty of time for that later. Thursday was a normal day.  I had a good early morning run with my MRTT […]

Murphy’s Law For Runners

Back before I got my Garmin, I used my RunKeeper app on my phone to track my mileage, time, and pace. While out on a run one day, I notice that every time my RunKeeper announced my mileage, a loud car drove by and I couldn’t hear my phone.  As soon as the lady in […]

Let me tell you the story of Rally Pigeon… but first I’ll start my story earlier in the day when we visited The Bullpen, because most good stories start with a margarita! Our good friends Beth and Tom invited us to join them for a Nationals game where the Nats were taking on the Giants […]

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

Letting Your Children Soar

I wasn’t the mother that put a mirror under my baby’s nose to make sure he was breathing.  In fact, I was a very relaxed new mom and I’m not sure why, but I think it had to do with faith. I had faith that the good Lord above was looking over my family; and […]
