Pulling Back

    Over the course of the last two years, I’ve struggled a bit. I felt stuck in some parts of my life, and frankly, I didn’t know exactly how to fix it. Everyone has challenges and difficulties. For some time, I allowed the things that were difficult to push me down, make me angry, […] more

Springing Forward

Hello friends! It’s been a while again, and I apologize. I swear I have a good reason for being such a flake. You see, in the past few weeks a lot of changes have been going on in my life. Travis bought a house and we moved in on March 1st. We were both miserably […] more

What I Do When I Don’t Run

I’m beginning to think I need to re-name this blog, because lately there has been neither jigging, nor jogging.  Truthfully, even though I work in a gym, getting myself to actually work out has been rough. I’m signed up for a half marathon with two co-workers in April, and I have accomplished no more than […] more

2013 In Review: Running / Fitness

2013 was supposed to be my grand return to running. I signed up again with Team in Training with the plan of conquering the Nike Women’s Marathon (while not gimpy) and helping to find a cure for blood cancers. My IT band had other plans. Namely, that it is still being a pain in my […] more

2013 In Review: Non- YA Reads

I set myself a goal, on GoodReads.com to read 75 books this year. This year especially, I’ve read a ton of YA Lit. However, I’ve also managed to squeeze in some literary fiction, aka, non-YA Lit. Below is a list of the books I read that did not fall into the YA Lit category. I […] more

2013 In Review: Introduction

As the year comes to a close, I find myself looking back in order to look forward. I’d like to spend more time at the end of this year really thinking about what I’d like to accomplish in the next year, three years, five years. In order to do this, I also would like to […] more

Time, see what’s become of me

This week I attended a staff retreat where I took part in a workshop titled, “My Plate’s Already Full!” I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, although the description talked a bit about finding a work/life balance which appealed to me. One of the biggest things I took away from this workshop was that we […] more

Run Like the Wind Playlist

This is what I’m currently listening to when I run Get Lucky (feat. Pharrell Williams) – Daft Punk Next to Me – Emeli Sande Mirrors – Justin Timberlake Get the Girl Back – Hanson Closer – Tegan and Sara Love on Top – Beyonce Not Over You – Gavin DeGraw Shake it Out – Florence […] more


Some of the best advice I got when I first started running, and training for distance running was, “get used to being uncomfortable.” There’s a difference between discomfort and injury pain, and learning the difference and how to power through that initial discomfort is a huge part of training, and quite honestly, life in general. […] more

Hemlock: Not All Poison

I just finished reading Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock, and have some mixed feelings. Overall, I found the novel to be enjoyable, but had a few issues with it, as well as the fact that it is actually the first book in a series. Firstly, throughout most of this book felt like it was a stand-alone […] more
