The Epic Roadtrip

Hello again, my favorites, and greetings from California! I accepted a new position within my company in January, and it’s based in Southern California. I’m 2 weeks into the new job, new people, and new office and am loving it so far. I’m writing this post to tell you all about the trip here! The most remarkable thing about this move to California is that I have never driven cross-country before. Ever. It was crazy…

A Tale of Ten Injuries

Hello, friends! After a short hiatus from blogging to tend to things in the real life world, I’m back again this month! Not without any frustration, pain, highs, and lows, I’ve been battling some nagging injuries since my 100 at Burning River in July — 7 months ago. It is quite the story… with an ending that’s still being written. I’m not fully 100% yet, but working towards it. Here’s what happened: July 2013 During and…

Goodbye ’13, Hello 2014!

Hello friends! What a crazy holiday season finally behind us! We had a great time spending some days with family/friends in Indianapolis and Cleveland. Most importantly, we had time to RELAX, and hope you did too! I’m going to put a little spin on the 2013 recap, doing it in photos. Looking back through the big events of the year, it was another busy one. How? 1) We ran the Rocky Raccoon ultramarathon (north of…

We Made Fat Heads

Well hello there– and thanks for standing by, because it has been a crazy few weeks. Now that the holidays are here we can actually relax! Today we’re going to talk about fatheads. Are you familiar? It’s a giant head. Literally. Back in September, Ben and I traveled up to Michigan to watch Chris, Chris, and Erin run the Dances With Dirt in Hell, MI (also known as DWD Hell). And it’s true, races are…

Place and Time

The other day, Ben and I were traveling to Los Angeles to manage a cross country race. It was a beautiful morning flight! When our plane arrived, the pilot came onto the intercom to tell us that an incident had occurred at the airport about 15 minutes prior. We weren’t able to get off of the plane for about 30 minutes. I didn’t think it was a big deal at the time, but Ben and…

What We Ate: Sweet Potato-Topped Chicken Pot Pie

Well everybody, I’m still injured. And definitely not running. I’ve been 13 weeks of patient to heal and am just starting to see some more improvement toward normal, but who knows how long until I can actually run again. An injured hip limits me from a lot of activities – even walking – and that’s why you keep seeing all these food posts. More on injury stuff soon, and apologies if you think recipe posts…
