When I signed up for the Brew City Half Marathon, I would NEVER had guessed that it would be the same weekend that Mother Nature would throw one of the largest snowstorms in over 100 years at us! I know that living in Wisconsin means that the weather can be (and often is) unpredictable. Many […]
A COLD day for Hot Cider!
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 […]
It takes a tribe to run 50k – Titletown Race Series 2017

Shoe Hoodies! The all-season runner’s new best friend!

Yesterday, I knew that I needed to get outside and enjoy the unusually […]
Running for chocolate is always a good thing!
But running with friends is always better! When Carrie and I realized that we were both signed up for the Cellcom Full marathon, we knew that we would be spending more time to gether, getting in those long runs on Saturdays! Since the Seroogy 15k/5k race fell on the same weekend that we had 10 […]
Bellin Women’s Half Marathon – better every year!
Forget the meaning of can’t – Sarah Reinersten (Just a note before we get too far! This race was actually back in October 2016. Apparently I started my race recap and never finished it.

Running and the mind games we play with ourselves
Being positive doesn’t mean ignoring the negative…. being positive means overcoming the negative Ask any runner and then will tell you, some runs are better than others. Some days you feel like you can keep going all day, when other days, just getting a mile in is a chore. 2 Miles one day feels like […]
Destination Oregon, Part 2
The best things in life are the people we love, the places we’ve been and the memories we have made along the way! I don’t know about you, but as I’ve gotten older, the things that are most important have changed. So many people, as they get older, look back as say, “Man, I […]
