Josse said, “Let’s go run a really beautiful 7 mile loop up in the mountains.” She forgot to mention that we would go so high up in the mountains that our ears would pop due to elevation change.   How in the world is it 50 degrees in Utah during December? Cascadia 9s, you treat me really well on the trails. Well, turns out climbing 1,800 feet in less than 4 miles makes your legs feel completely like jello mixed […]

Tradition #10 & not one to turn down…

As we were leaving the house yesterday morning you could still see the moon in the sky.  Brooke just could not take her eyes off of it and I could not take my eyes off of her big blue eyes.   It was a spinning kind of a morning.   My luck has just been out of control lately. I could not find my spin shoes anywhere. I thought there was NO WAY that I could have left them at […]

As runners we are all pretty hardcore and keep up with our running even when it is freezing outside.  Time to make sure you have the right accessories to keep you warm while you are out on the roads and trails! My favorite thing about the Adapt Glove II is the detachable LED flashlight on the right glove.  The light is super easy to turn on and off and it sure helps you to stay safe when running in the […]

The luckiest thing that has happened to me in a long time and my weight in animals.

We are just going to rewind back to Tuesday night.   1.  My hair is dark again.  I probably won’t wash it for a week to attempt to keep it the way that my hairdresser styled it. 2.  I ate the best tacos to celebrate Taco Tuesday.  1 chicken, 1 beef and 1 avocado taco. My good friend Addie took me to her current favorite.  It is called Oteo and I will be a frequent visitor from this point forward. […]

Thank you for all of your amazing comments earlier today.  You guys are the best. 8.6 miles of treadmilling this morning.  After 4.5 miles I switched to my favorite treadmill (once the person that was on it got off) to finish up the last 4.1 miles.  I am very strange about my treadmills and which ones are my favorite.     For the final two minutes I set the treadmill at my marathon goal pace to get a sub 3….

Let’s talk about dating after a divorce and tradition #8.

One of the most frequent questions/emails I get is about dating.   Sometimes I am a little too open on here but whatever:  I think… well, I know… I threw myself into dating post-divorce much too quickly.   I dated a few really great guys that were very good to me starting at about 5 months after my separation.  The problem was that I just wasn’t in a good place to be in any sort of relationship.  None of those […]
