United Relay of America 5k


I’ve talked a little bit about this race in my posts this week, so I’m excited to finally talk more about this with all of you. The United Relay of America is unlike any race I’ve ever heard of before. It’s a triple-route coast-to-coast non stop running relay. For the first time in history, three unbroken chains of runners will relay nearly 12,000 miles across the United States.

The Truth About Starting Over…

*Insert Microphone Tap Here*


Not sure if anyone still checks in on my little corner of the blogosphere anymore but I wanted to check in. I know I’ve been horrible about posting recently since life has taken over, but I’ve really been focusing on work and spending as much time with friends and family as possible. I’ve also been struggling about what to post about since my activity level has taken a serious decrease after this. Continue reading

Running Victories and You MUST Add This Song to Your Playlist STAT!

I can’t say that I enjoy being to work at 7am, but I DO enjoy when I’m able to get off from work early enough to make it to the lake before the massive crowds take up all the parking.

The only problem is that around 4:30pm is basically the hottest part of the day. It was about 9 million degrees outside and I was wearing this.

Weekend in Review – Family, Friends, Moving & 5ks!

Well hello there lovely people!

I hope you all had a great weekend and that you were able to squeeze in a run or two with some friends. Since I’ve been a little MIA lately with all the craziness of wrapping up things at my old job, starting a new one, moving and running a 5k, I thought I’d do a little recap of what’s been going on around here from late last week through the weekend, so that we could get caught up. Since I’ve got a lot to catch you up on, let’s get into it!

Friday Photo Roundup + Ramblings

Hello and welcome to Friday!

Oh man has this been a week. Phew. I’m exhausted just thinking about it. I thought Friday would never come! What about you guys?

I was looking through my phone and realized I had a bunch of photos from this week that I haven’t shared, so I thought I’d do a photo roundup + ramblings on what I’ve been up to this week to catch you up!

What Does it Mean to “Earn” Your Race Medal?

The concept of what it really means to actually “earn” your race medal (or race bib for that matter) is something that I’ve been struggling to define for awhile now. After my injury, I had a really hard time giving up running indefinitely, since I considered it to be my soul sport. I never participated in traditional sports in school because I was never really any good at them, so once I found running, it felt like I had finally found a place where I could excel and belong.

Women of Wonder 5k/10k Race Recap

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

This weekend I did the Women of Wonder 5k and had a blast! Nearly everyone dressed up in some sort of superhero costume (or at least showed up wearing a tutu) and lots of people wore superhero socks with cute little capes on the back. Adorbs! I’ve never been to a female focused race before so it was fun to dress up and have the full race experience.

The Beauty of Starting Lines in Running and in Life


I came across this awhile ago and it really struck me. I knew I wanted to write something about it, but I didn’t know what just yet. I’ve been holding on to it and pondering for awhile until I could really figure out what I wanted to say. After giving it some thought, I think I’ve finally figured it out, so here it goes…
