Mountaintops

┬áSomething I've come to notice, especially recently, is that life is full of highs and lows. What's amazing to me is that sometimes those can happen at the same time! A little under 2 weeks ago, John and I sold our home in Pennsylvania. All of a sudden, our upcoming family move became very real.... Continue Reading →

Joy for the Journey

We've had a lot going on lately. You know from previous posts that a lot of my focus has shifted from working out to getting through and figuring things out. We have become a forward-focused family. From planning for a move into an uncertain new life (which has MANY ups as well as downs!) to... Continue Reading →

New Goals and a New Hope

If you've been following along, you know that this blog has taken a little bit of a turn.

I still had some pluots left from last week and we received peaches and nectarines this week. Now, normally I try to... Continue Reading →

New Chapters and Moving Forward

Sometimes decisions are just hard. There's no other way to put it. Many of you have probably noticed that my blog has been a little - okay a lot - less active than usual. It has a lot to do with decisions! Sometimes things come up that aren't expected. We've been going through a lot... Continue Reading →

Running in Summer: Surviving the Heat

Days are getting longer, the world is a lot greener and the temperatures are starting to rise: summer is just around the corner. I've heard a lot in my own community - new and old runners alike talking about how the heat is starting to affect their training schedules. Instead of looking at the heat... Continue Reading →
