Chasing a 5k PR

I have chased the same goal for 14 years. If this goal was a person, she would be a high school freshman. I was high school freshman when I set this goal. This goal isn’t lofty, I’m not trying to defeat a dark wizard or destroy a planet killer...

Nonexistent Race Recap

Nonexistent Race Recap

I know the title of this post is misleading. There was no race called the Nonexistent Race. This isn’t an actual race recap– rather this is a recap of why I didn’t run the New Jersey Marathon. If you had asked me in January...

My Cure

My Cure

There’s something in the rhythm of running that just seems to soothe me. Ask any runner; the only thing that really calms me down after a hard or stressful day is a nice, long, solo run. I’ve started running without my watch...

Lets try this again, fall races

Lets try this again, fall races

The summer training cycle has felt a bit lackluster. I had put a half marathon on my calendar for Oct. 11 but it felt too early in the fall season. Yet, in the Northwest races are not scheduled deep into the fall for obvious reasons. The more I...

Couer d’ Alene is a resort town in the panhandle of Idaho and is unexpectedly breath-taking. Last December, when it was cold and icy, it seemed like the perfect place to run a half-marathon. On Sunday, I was very happy that I had picked it...

Fall Goal Setting

Fall Goal Setting

I ran my first and only marathon in Chicago on Oct. 10 2014 (10/10/10). I was 23. I told myself, I would run one again at 25 but life got busy. I graduated with my M.A. in advertising that year, moved to Colorado Springs and started a new job. I...

Gymnastics.

Gymnastics.

Its amazing how fast something can go from one day a week and just for fun, to three to four days a week and your already training for competitions! I just recently got back into gymnastics, only a month ago, and I am already on a team and...

One More Week.

One More Week.

These last few weeks have been overwhelming and busy. The school year is finally coming to a wrap. But my schedule seems to be getting busier everyday! The school year may be ending, but riding, gymnastics, lacrosse and climbing outside are just...
