Weekend Adventures in Arches NP

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. Here’s what Frank and I were up to. Friday after work, we picked up a friend of ours (yes, we made a friend in Salt Lake City!) and drove down to Moab for a few canyons and a science march. We spent the night campingContinue reading “Weekend Adventures in Arches NP”

Goals

Goals. They can be big, and scary, and impossibly hard. As runners, we often set manageable, small, tiny goals that are reachable. We set goals that we can wrap our heads around. But sometimes, we should be setting goals that are maybe a reach, something that even on a perfect day may not happen. FailureContinue reading “Goals”

Training Update: Base Building

I feel like my blog has turned into an ode to how much I love Utah. But seriously, I really love Utah. Anyways… this is a running blog and I do have some running coming up. As a few of you already know, I am not running the Utah Valley Marathon due to my injuryContinue reading “Training Update: Base Building”

Weekend Adventures!

Hey Everyone! I had a great weekend! Here’s what we were up to! Friday I didn’t get back from work until pretty late, but Frank and I immediately went out to Red Butte Canyon for some trail running (me) and mountain biking (him). I mostly ran along the Bonneville Shoreline Trail that runs from ProvoContinue reading “Weekend Adventures!”

Wasatch Trail Runner Series

I currently (for one more week) live in a rather small town. It has all the small town charms and you pretty much end up knowing everyone pretty fast. As a runner, small towns have their perks; you’re way less likely to get hit by a car, you see a lot of the same peopleContinue reading “Wasatch Trail Runner Series”

The Moving Saga Continues

Moving Update Frank and I are officially making the move in 11 days. It’s a little surreal getting our stuff packed knowing that in less than two weeks, we’ll be living in the mountains. We’ll be making the final ride through the prairie with everything that we own and our two cats in our littleContinue reading “The Moving Saga Continues”

A Dream Come True

I’ve spent my whole life loving and admiring the mountains, but always being a plane or long car ride away. It hurt to watch the Rocky Mountains disappear from my rearview mirror each time that I came home from Denver. The drive back into Kansas is long and monotonous, and more than anything, I wantedContinue reading “A Dream Come True”

Colfax Marathon Week 2

Hey guys! I know I am late on this training recap, but things have been a little crazy around here. We’ve had a few major ups and downs, and I have been feeling a little emotionally drained. Regardless, I have still been training and running has been going well. I had a fantastic long runContinue reading “Colfax Marathon Week 2”
