Wednesday… and I am wondering/wandering?

Monday I was trail walking with a good friend and we were talking about where we are in our relationship with Christ. Both of us described a “wandering” but not in getting away from or loosing sight of our King, but more of a waiting, learning refining. That night at Bible study in which we…

It’s not just a race

Today I was going to write a little witty fun blog about my adventures in the Palmetto 200/70 relay run that I participated in last weekend. I even started a draft of the blog in the car ride home Sunday afternoon. Monday afternoon as I was sitting under the tree in my parents back yard…

Remain flexible… always!

Last night as work was winding down, my feet were letting me know it had been a somewhat busy 12 hours. My neck and shoulder a little tense from the “waiting” on an important e-mail that never came. My mind started wondering to waking to no alarm, leisurely sipping my green juice and hitting a…

It’s that moment…

Recently I posted about anxiety… Today I experienced an extreme moment of said anxiety. The sun was shining, it was nearly 50 degrees here in the mid-west so I HAD to run 🙂 … in shorts.. with snow on the ground! As I walked up the driveway after pounding out a decent 4 miles I…

What get’s you out the door?

Yesterday I procrastinated a run. The sun was bright but the temps registered between 28-30 degrees brrrr. Usually I don’t mind running in the winter, but my lame excuse yesterday was that my toes were already cold! No I don’t wear cotton socks, smartwool or icebreaker for this girl. In all honesty it was just…

Sweat on… reader beware it gets “smelly”

Today I wanted to go for a run. By the time I rolled out of bed (I didn’t get there till 3 a.m., gotta love that 2nd shift!) I knew that I would be facing a bright hot sun as I hit the pavement, I knew I would heat up quick, sweat a lot, but…

Going the “extra mile”

I know I just posted about running, however today is kinda of a blog 5K kind of day. I got a notice from the blogger world about doing a 5K and posting about it! So here it is, sometimes you just have to run! Today was one of those days. The last few months I…

A friend’s look at running the race well

This post is written by my friend Greg Zastrow, who my Dad has dubbed “my house pastor.” Actually he is one of my house church leaders, their neighbor,  but more he is a friend as his whole wonderful family has become a close part of my life. Greg has this way of going for the…

March “madness”

I am not totally sure why I pick the title March Madness, this post is not about basketball… even if I do live near University of Dayton a big basketball college of sorts. So what do I mean by March madness… nothing and everything. March has been a moment of greatest highs and lowest of…

Saturday… what are you doing?

  When I was a little girl Saturday’s usually started with Cherrio’s and cartoons. Unless it was a weekend at my Dad’s and then I got Fruit Loops! Now I shudder at my choice of cereal, but hey… “you’ve come a long way baby” oh wait that was a cigarette commercial! I really couldn’t tell…

Run, walk, just move it!

I have been asked be for if I am a runner. My usual answer is no, but I run. You see I am not competitive, I don’t usually set a goal and to say I like it always would be a lie, but I do like how it makes me feel, honestly I like how…
