Friday Night Cry Session

I normally don’t complain on here or blog about things that get me down.  I try to stay pretty positive and would consider myself a glass-half full kind of girl. But the recent pain in my lower back has made the last two weeks extremely tough: I’m frustrated that the pain is affecting my parenting […]

What’s Your Everest?

Source

I think we all have our own version of Everest – that one seemingly insurmountable race or adventure we want to do one day… It’s likely that you don’t go around broadcasting this lifetime goal.  Maybe you feel that it would be as crazy as saying “I want to go to the moon”.   Maybe […]

4th of July and Why I Need To Run

Pretty good stride for an almost 18 mo old!

Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July!!  My husband and I took our son to the beach for the first time this year.  I knew he would enjoy the sand and water, but I wasn’t prepared for HOW much he would love it. It was a perfect day. —————————————————————- I haven’t posted much since […]

Embrace the Pain

One of my all time favorite quotes

One of my favorite parts of a hard run is the moment the pain arrives.  Not pain from an injury.  But pain from pushing myself. Maybe it’s my lungs burning during a speed workout. Or my legs when they start to feel the burn from hill repeats.  It may just be plain exhaustion when I’m […]
