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 gets me out there to run.… Read the rest

I had all intentions | Lacking Motivation

I had the perfect option or so I thought…

I have been dreaming of running another marathon. I went through hours of searching the web to find one that would be easy to get to and be able to make a cheapish trip out of it. I had the perfect idea.… 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. I probably should have gotten out there and just went for it.… Read the rest

The Best Running Buddy

Running Buddy

I had been running for several years and had convinced my husband to run with me a few times. I even got him and my sister to run my first marathon with me. It was an exciting start to my running, but then something happened. We all slowly stopped running together.… Read the rest

Three Other Runners

A typical yet not so typical morning

The other day, I was out on my morning run trying to get it in before my little man and I were off to start our busy day outside of the house. I had gone back and forth about getting out. Mostly, I just wanted an hour or so to myself before he woke up, but lately he has been waking up between 5:30 and 6.… Read the rest

Bringing Back the Running Posts

There was a time when…

Before Elijah came, I spent a lot of time blogging about my runs. I loved being able to share my struggles and accomplishments. I had good runs, bad runs, exciting races, and some not so exciting races. I also loved exploring new running exercises. I am not a sprinter, but it is very helpful for a distance runner to gain speed.… Read the rest

The Training Continues

I remember the days where I blogged almost weekly or daily about running. I had a desire to share with the world how my runs went and it seemed as though people really enjoyed reading the posts. Now, I just don’t know what to say about running.

We are about half way through our training for the Midnight Sun Marathon and it has been going well.… Read the rest

Girls Weekend Celebration

Over this last weekend, my mom and I drove and met my sister and one of my best friends in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. As great as the weekend was, it was way too short. I could have spent days with these ladies. They are some of my favorites! I couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate turning 30 this week.… Read the rest

And Another

I don’t know if you remember about a month ago, I posted a blog about Brent and I beginning our marathon training. He had ran my first marathon with me back in 2011 at the Portland Marathon here in Oregon. From then on, he said he would never run a marathon again unless it was a really awesome one.… Read the rest

Marathon Training Begins

Today is day one of training for my 8th marathon and Brent’s 2nd. Yes, Brent is going to run another marathon! How did I convince him of this? Well it actually didn’t take much because we are going to run a super awesome once in a lifetime marathon. It is the Midnight Sun Marathon in Tromso, Norway.… Read the rest

Marathon #6…

Yup, I did it. My twin and I registered or my sixth marathon and her second. We will be running the Fargo Marathon on May 9th. I wasn’t planning on running another marathon this year, but I am really excited about it. We are going to run it together and just have a good time.… Read the rest

Nike+ 2014 Running Review

Nike+ sent me this video giving me a review for my runs in 2014. I didn’t log all of my miles and I didn’t have a good marathon year, but this is still a fun video. I am excited to see what 2015 brings. Not sure if I will run a marathon, but who knows!… Read the rest
