“Camping” with the kids

I remember wanting to "camp out" all the time when I was a kid. The idea of sleeping someplace other than my bed was so appealing for some reason. Right now, I'm having a hard time remembering why. I mean, I love my bed! Why would I want to sleep on the floor??? My kids... Continue Reading →

When the Honeymoon is Over.

I Set a New PR!

I've been flirting with the barrier for the past few weeks, but couldn't make it over the hump. Well, that all ended tonight! Mile 3 was completed in 7:04!!! Feeling good about that.

Stone Cold Hill Run

Another breezy cold day here. Perfect timing for a longer run! Not many people were out in the neighborhood this afternoon, so I snuck out for a 4-miler. That means doing a few figure-8's up and down the hills of my subdivision. What's great about running here, is that it's all hills. But not long... Continue Reading →

Cold Breeze, Warm Sun

January has decided to be a little bipolar. One day it's freezing, the next it feels like early Spring. I certainly won't complain when it means warm sun and cool breezes!
