Never Good Enough.

Hello, friends! Here’s a fun fact: I took a geography/science class when I was a sophomore in high school. The beginning of every class was the same, our teacher would write a quote on the board and we would take 5 minutes to reflect on that quote, what we thought it meant, and how it … Continue reading

Marathon Fever…?

To marathon or not to marathon? That is the question. Or so Shakespeare says, or something like that. I have so many thoughts that are running through my head right now about this marathon stuff.

Falling for Fall.

This morning I had a glorious run. Which made me think of fall. Here’s a little love letter to autumn. Dear Autumn, I miss you terribly. I felt teased by you when temps were under 70 this morning and I felt as if you had your cool arms around me. I know you are near, … Continue reading

Consumed by Numbers.

Hello friends, its humpday! Most of us who are in some athletic field are surrounded by numbers and data. How far? How fast? What’s the pace? How much weight? How many reps? By how much did I improve? So much it makes my brain hurt! Okay, so it doesn’t take much to make that happen… … Continue reading
