Do you ever have those moments where you find yourself seeing the exact thing you needed to see at the exact right moment? Last night, one of my childhood besties posted this saying by Pam Lambert on Facebook “she silently stepped out of the race she never wanted to be in, found her own lane,…… Continue reading Choose Your Own Adventure
Training, podcasts, and pasta!
Sporting my newest training ball cap. Being a mom is the hardest and most rewarding journey of them all! Valentine’s Day. What a loaded holiday of unmet expectations. I’m gearing up to channel my inner Finlander by eating my weight in carbs with this TikTok phenomenon known as uunifetapasta. I’ll enjoy this savory meal with…… Continue reading Training, podcasts, and pasta!
The promises we keep
Ten hours after my father died, I found myself in a pet store trying to comprehend the clerk as she explained she could not legally sell my son and I goldfish due to not having the appropriate tank prepped for the occasion. It was Christmas Eve afternoon and I had promised my son we’d surprise…… Continue reading The promises we keep
Training Update: What am I thinking?
https://youtu.be/-J7Xqa4Y2oE Confused? The idea for my first VLOG came about due to an upcoming assignment. Next week I’m heading out to the Michigan Ice Fest in Munising. I’m going ice climbing. And no, that’s not a typo. This should be relatively amusing, in part because I’m not a huge fan of cold and I’m afraid…… Continue reading Training Update: What am I thinking?
Last… As in Last Place. Thanks Nike.
An interesting post came up in my Twitter feed today. If it were a promoted Tweet, I would have seriously wondered exactly what in my Twitter profile exemplifies exactly how slow I run. Fast Company shared Nike’s latest ad. In the Tweet, they call this ad a soulful tribute to last place. It immediately peaked…… Continue reading Last… As in Last Place. Thanks Nike.
Before you read this, I want you to pause for thirteen seconds. Did you do it? It really isn’t that hard, right? I mean 13 seconds is nothing. It probably took me that long to type this sentence. But this past weekend, I discovered that 13 seconds in running is comparable to 8 seconds when…… Continue reading Thirteen Seconds
Lacing Up is Hard to Do
Today marks 12-weeks until my next half-marathon. It is also the kick-off of training for an anticipated 5K in August and a 10-miler run in September. A lot has happened since my last post. Two weeks after the half, I did my first 5k in Stillwater and absolutely loved it. I also learned during that…… Continue reading Lacing Up is Hard to Do
Back of the Pack
This morning, my legs clocked 11 miles on the tri-county corridor. Several things happened while I slowly made my way across a tiny portion of northwest Wisconsin. First, my goal of finishing the race in under 3-hours in two weeks isn’t happening. Not by a long shot. I had a hunch this might be the…… Continue reading Back of the Pack
My Life Unfiltered
A couple weeks ago I was getting ready to share an update on my diet and a pic of my new running shoes, along with a blog post about my first ever class on how to build a succulent wreath. Within an hour of opening my blue and brown Brooks running shoe box, life changed.…… Continue reading My Life Unfiltered
Back of the Pack: Run for the Lakes Both Humbling and Inspirational
Saturday marked my 4th Half-Marathon. It was my first race post baby. Training revolved around teething, sleepless nights, never-ending illnesses, pregnancy gut and this lovely thing called a Polar Vortex. One week before the race, I was driving through a fresh foot of snow. Two days before the race, I was slipping and sliding along…… Continue reading Back of the Pack: Run for the Lakes Both Humbling and Inspirational
