Coldest day in Green Bay since last winter, and what did we do? Yup, we ran! Ok, I ran, and the rest of the family walked. It was time for the Hot Cider Hustle and my first half marathon since St Louis in April! Yes, I have been running and biking all summer long, but […]
Crazy Hamster Running Wild in Green Bay, Volume 1
Back in June, I was invited by fellow Skirt Sports Ambassador Sandy Stiner to join her on a crazy challenge. Run every street in your city. Yes, Every Street. It might take more than just this year, but this was going to be a new adventure. This is the first of many post to capture my […]
Fellow Flowers… it’s more than just a group of ladies running together
4 years ago I was introduced to a new organization. A movement that was happening practically in my backyard. An idea created partially by an old friend. Fellow Flowers was the brainchild of Tori and Mel, as a way to bring women together, a virtual sisterhood for women who run, a place to empower and encourage […]
Lets run 33 hills! It will be fun!
Yes, I said this, and I will say it again! That is exactly what we did with the Run The Bluegrass (RTB) Half marathon in Lexington Kentucky!

Happy St Patrick’s Day (a little early I guess!)
Tis the time of year for green beer and leprechauns! That means it is back to Tanners in Kimberly for the St. Pat’s Run! 2 years ago, my running partner Matt and I did this run in single digit temperatures and last year we missed it as we were all in Arizona for spring training […]

My first Half Marathon in Michigan finally complete!
Yes, that is correct… after growing up in Michigan, still traveling back there on a fairly regular basis and only living a few hours away, up until now, I had not run a Half Marathon in the state! A few months ago, I saw a Facebook post about the Marquette Marathon and figured I’d check […]
