My goodness! “Where do I go from here?” Have you said that, felt that, ACTED on that? The helplessness builds in your psyche like a consuming fire, devouring what was once good. Perhaps you’re at a dead-end job, struggling to get a business off the ground or trying to get married or have children.… Read the rest
I have been at this whole multimedia side-hustle thing for a while now. I started off in high school making slideshow presentations for graduation ceremonies, homecoming events and recap videos for mission trips.… Read the rest
As many of you know, this year, on May 17th, we celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. Due to work scheduling, I couldn’t take any time off around that date, but I was able to secure a week off in June.… Read the rest
It’s all about getting started, all you need is a push.
The goal is to harness movement and let it carry you through the obstacles that life invariably provides. What is hard is when you’ve been sitting still for too long. Obstacles that used to seem like mole hills, now feel like mountains.… Read the rest
I’ve been running off and on now for years. My earliest memories are from Jr. High, running track and field in the Spring and cross-country in the Fall. I loved running, I just loved it. It wasn’t that I was a driven, competitive athlete, but that I just could go for miles, stuck in my own head.… Read the rest
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 stuff searched through, shuttling to the hotel and dropping off our bags, we headed into the city to see some sights.… Read the rest
Part 1 of many about my adventure to Nepal with Approach Intl.
Andy was flying in from Bozeman, and I was joining him in Seattle. It was a four hour drive up from The Dalles, so I was able to get in a bit of last minute time with my family before leaving them for two weeks.… Read the rest
It’s December 31st, 2017, and here I am recounting the memories of this past year. Had I wrote this a couple weeks ago, the tone would be much different. The past two weeks has stretched our little family. So I will work backwards in events, to end on a cheerier note.… Read the rest
I was introduced to Rudy during an assignment for work. He is the 2018 inductee to the Skyline Award for Excellence for his service to White Salmon, Skyline Hospital and the Columbia River Gorge. I was as his house to snag a couple pics for a newsletter. While chatting with him, he brought up that he sets up a 40 foot lighted “tree” on the bluff outside his home.… Read the rest
Is was very soon after our first half-marathon (the Missoula) that thoughts crept in about running a full marathon. We trained for some more races, 10Ks and half-marathons, mostly run together. I think it was during our training and completion of the Billings Governors Cup half that a destination was set and training schedule established.… Read the rest
Jess recently posted about when she started becoming the marathoner we have before us today and I thought it’d be a good time to share my thoughts on the whole thang. So as she stated, just over 8 years ago, Jess’s interest in running was piqued by a family member. At this point, she was most definitely not a runner.… Read the rest
