I hope everyone had a great New Year's Eve! Usually, NYE is a night for major partying but this year I decided I didn't have it in me. That is not to say I was disappointed in any way with my tame night in. I've been excited about my nothin' plans for a month! I … Continue reading New Year, new goals, same me
Here we are at the end of 2016- a year that many have called a dumpster fire. A lot of awful things happened in the world this year- as they do every year- but this one really did feel worse. That may be because for all the things we lost in 2016, one thing we … Continue reading 2016- Resolution Review
Over the weekend I ran the Santa Dash with my company sponsored team! Have I said before how proud I am of the charitable giving at Myriad? Well I am.

This Saturday I am running the Heroes and Villains Dash to benefit Memorial … Continue reading Xena Warrior Princess in Progress
This race was amazing! I physically felt better than I have in most races. This is the first one I have not cried at the finish. I did end up with a bit of a bug after the weekend. I guess running all that distance was rather taxing on my immune system. And actually, I … Continue reading ROCK N ROLL half-marathon 13.1
Today my folks and I went to the race expo to pick up our race packets for tomorrow! As at least one of my readers/friends has noticed, this post is going up in the evening rather than the morning like most of my posts.
