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.… Read the rest

Up the Hill | Runner Problems

 

Back at it

I’ve been running again consecutively after having 3 weeks off at the end of 2017 and the beginning of the year. (Which is also why you haven’t seen a running post lately). With traveling for family events and my miscarriage, running just didn’t happen.… Read the rest

Experiencing a Loss | Miscarriage Part 4

It’s officially happening

I’m away from my husband and am now multiple states away from him. My bleeding increased, but I was still waiting for the news from my blood draw. I knew what the outcome was going to be, but I was still hanging on to a little bit of hope.… Read the rest

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.… Read the rest

Experiencing A Loss | Miscarriage Part 1

Did I have a miscarriage?

I hardly even know where to begin as I start this post. I don’t think I have ever shared anything like this on here before. I am hoping that it speaks to someone out there that needs to hear that you are not alone.… Read the rest

Year in Review: 2017

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

Christmas Tree Farm | A New Form of Tree…

Brent and I have been married for almost 10 years. That means this Christmas will be our tenth one together. It is so much fun to think about that. We don’t have a lot of traditions established yet. Mostly because we just did whatever was going on with our families and our friends.… Read the rest

The Local Turkey Trot

Since I started running nine years ago, if I wasn’t out of town or traveling on Thanksgiving day, I have been out at the local Thanksgiving day run burning a few calories before the big feast of the day. This is the perfect way to make sure you still get your workout in before you stuff your face full of food.… Read the rest

How the Half Became Full

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
