Three Weeks Later

Three Weeks Later

Motivation where are you? I have still had no motivation or desire to go on a run. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m that type of runner that needs something to train towards. Even if I know that my marathon training is going to start in 4 months, it still is something that …

Dubai

Part 2 of my adventure to Nepal with Approach Intl. We got into Dubai in the late evening. The flight was long, but not too bad. We both got good naps and felt pretty good upon arrival. Andy booked us a hotel just off the airport for our layover. After going through immigration, getting my …

Inside my Head | Running Confessions

Guys, I have some running confessions to make. When I get out there on the streets, I tend to start to get negative thoughts about all the things that other people are doing. It is something that I am trying to work on, but it is a real struggle for me. I am not sure …

When friends come to visit

Brent and I have been so busy with focusing on our house remodel that we haven’t gone out to explore our new surroundings too much. It doesn’t help that during the summer we also ran two marathons. That really puts a damper on going camping, hiking or anything else outdoors on top of a remodel. …

Experiencing a Loss | Miscarriage Part 3

News came Two fridays before Christmas, I couldn’t help myself. I took another pregnancy test and walked out of the bathroom to tell Brent that I was still pregnant. I chuckled a little in relief knowing that I was in fact really pregnant. There was still so much to do. I needed to find a …
