Flashback Friday, I guess.


Oh look, a totally random post for which I have no clever title. Life lately: What I’m choosing: It’s been a busy month, hence the Flashback Friday. So let’s look back at the last few weeks, shall we? Our first born made it across the country. Yeah, it wasn’t the most fantastic departure, but I’ve got a great support system: Ha! Even though I’ve been on this craptastic roller coaster for the last few years(?) it really is all good. I’ve still {Read More}

Time Is Not on My Side


The other day, someone commented that I somehow have more hours in my day for all the things I have going on. Don’t I wish. In reality, time is speeding past me and I can’t keep up. The only time it feels like things have slowed down is when I’m in bed, taking a “few” minutes to think & pray about this thing called life and next thing I know it’s 2am. Time is not on my side and its {Read More}

Because Life.


So it’s been almost a couple of months since I spent any time on my little space here on the interwebs. No lie, whenever I think about anything in my life writing, I come to the same conclusion. After the weekend at LA FitExpo (here, here, and here), we had a couple of birthdays, a couple of funerals, our dog broke her paw and apparently we are those people that spend ridiculous amounts of money for an animal annnnnd… the boomerang child is back. I am less {Read More}

LAFitExpo {Part 3}

Jerome Ferguson

What I wanted to bring you was a nice, orderly breakdown of the expo weekend. All the exhibitors, all the classes, all the competitions I got to see. My new BFF shhh, she’ll figure it out soon enough behaved like a grownup so you’ll want to check out her recap here. Being my first FitExpo, it kinda went down something like this: No shame in my fan girl game. Not even a little. We had early entry into the expo, and {Read More}

LAFitExpo {Part 2}

Pumped Up Cakes

Hi friends! I’m trying not to give you the big photo dump of my weekend at the LAFitExpo. But sheesh. Mind. Blown. My friend Marlo came with me for the weekend and even though we met through running, our fitness paths are taking us two different directions. I’m all about them gains these days, she’s still running and coming from a weight loss/bootcamp background. Regardless, there really was something for everyone and motivation to keep you moving forward in your {Read More}

LAFitExpo {Part 1}


I came across an old post the other day, from a few years back, where I’d finally come to the conclusion that I had become a runner. Over the next few years, my little space here on the interwebs was filled with posts about my training, races, and everything under the sun related to running. While I keep saying I’m done with running, I’m not sure running is done with me. While I pretend the struggle isn’t real try to figure that {Read More}

Going Back to My Roots


I’ve gone back, people. I got bored and I think this is what my original color is, but it’s been so long. Ha. After spending a good part of 2014 between injuries and recovery, it was time to sit down and figure out what the heck I was doing with myself. I love running. Or do I? I do. But it’s hard. But I do. But it’s work. But I still really want that sub2 half. But I really want to be stronger, too. {Read More}

Run Disney Star Wars Weekend

501st Selfies

Grab a cup of coffee, this is gonna be a LONG post, but it’s been a week and if I don’t do a dump now, it ain’t gonna happen. Last year I hopped on the crazy train with everyone else and signed up for this weekend at Disneyland. Did I mention it was the inaugural STAR WARS race weekend? Um, heck yes. With everything going on lately, however, I was feeling pretty stupid trying to tackle three races over the next three days. {Read More}

Thanks and #ThisGirlCan


Can I just say what a blessed woman I am? Honestly it rings true just as much today as it did when we were going through the muck of it all, but your texts, messages, and comments just leave me speechless. Part of me is somewhat waiting to see (or expecting?) what’s going to happen next, but all I can do is keep moving forward and pray for the best outcome. Moving on… I’ve been seeing everyone’s recaps from 2014, {Read More}

Transparent Tuesday {Life Lately}


Once upon a time, there was this girl. She. had. no. clue. But she had a boy. Then she and this boy made some kids. They started with this heart breaker. And man, has he been a heart breaker. He’s determined, stubborn, strong willed, and always right just like his mama. In the past year or so, my world has gone from this: To this: Some years days, parenting really sucks. You do what you can, the best you know how, but ultimately {Read More}
