The Good-old Days 🚣🏻‍♂️

Do you remember what you were you doing 23 years ago? I was a single college student trying to figure out life, and on the women's rowing team at Wichita State University. While I'm still trying to figure out life and have gained a hubby and 5 kids, rowing has once again come front and [...]

Oh Dark Thirty 🌙

For a long time, I hated running in the dark. I was worried I'd get chased by a dog, hit by a car, trip or fall, and it's disorienting not being able to clearly see where I'm going. Once again through the process of time, running continues to change me. As the seasons shift and [...]

“Plan for Everything Control Nothing…”

Deena Kastor (2004 US Olympic Marathon Bronze Medalist) 🇺🇸🥉 Today I was out early as the weather is finally really warming up. If I wait too long to head out for a long run, the heat reminds me of how costly sleeping in can be. Today's workout focused on a negative 10k split. Normally I [...]

Southern Utah is world renowned for its majestic mountains and arid natural beauty. When the sun rises and starts to warm the red rocked landscape, the view is inspiring. The horizon develops a warm glow that is unlike anything I've seen anywhere else; I absolutely love it. When I woke up Friday morning to a [...]
