Am I on the other side? Of Hell? “When you’re going through Hell, KEEP GOING…” Said Winston Churchill. I thought of this quote as I hit Mile 1 in a four mile run. Because I sure wanted to QUIT! But I didn’t. I kept going. And the longer I ran, naturally the more I thought. […]

If you’ve read any of my blogs, then you know I love how running makes me feel. And you know how I struggle to be a strong runner. And you know how much I love my life. And you know how shattered I felt when I went through my divorce. I say “felt”….because it felt […]

I watched the movie “Silver Linings Playbook” and loved it. It’s about this man who caught his wife cheating and LOST IT. Ended up in a mental hospital only to get out and still battle with denial. There’s a part in the movie where he hears this one song that always throws him over the […]

All it takes is a simple sentence to throw me in flashback mode. And I never know who is going to say it, or where I’m going to hear it. This morning I went to a spin class. First weekday morning class as I usually work day hours but this week I’m working evening hours. […]

So yesterday I showed up for a trail race I wasn’t sure I was ready to do or even wanted to do. My recovery from the gallbladder surgery has kept me OFF the road more than on. And I haven’t been running 4x a week like I was. PLUS I have had some heel and […]

So far this has been an amazing year. I signed up with Team in Training and made some AMAZING friends and walked away with some solid friendships. The entire experience was simply incredible. My plan is to return as a mentor. And train with some first timers. I never imagine I would have had this […]

I have waited 6 years to repeat my very first half-marathon. And I finally re-did it! So one would think that I would have been blogging from here to Kingdom Come once The Race was over. (What does that phrase mean anyway? “From here to kingdom come”). I have been so overwhelmed with a myriad […]

EIGHTEEN DAYS. I’ve been waiting for this day for six years. Or have I? My first half marathon was a disaster. It was all uphill, even on the flat part. And when I got back home, the uphill became a steep climb that lasted me five years. I have been doing sooooooo much reflecting in […]

Sadness Has Left The Building

I’ve been doing so much reflecting this past week–more than usual. I love my life. Seriously. When I first started running I was an overweight unhappy married woman. And running has taken me to places beyond what I ever could have imagined for myself. I don’t mean places, as in cities. Although I have taken […]
