Got an early morning run in, and after my running partner had a wardrobe malfunction, we cut it short. My legs felt super heavy from my long bike ride the day before, so I wasn’t bummed at all by this… But I was hydrated and had great nutrition! We hit a swim afterward. Sunday’s are a shorter swim for the week, and because of that … Continue reading Prepped for the week…
When I’m 2,000 steps over my Garmin goal for the day, on a weekend and didn’t run, you know it’s been a crazy day! First, the girls had their last day of basketball camp this morning.

Fun stuff!!! This … Continue reading Workouts, A Challenge & Meal Prep!
Saturday morning started with the girls’ basketball camp. They both did so great. It is awesome watching their completely different personalities in this kind of setting. Haili is just naturally athletic and with just a little direction, she knows just what she should be doing. She was making shots like crazy! Graci, who honestly wasnt interested in doing the camp to begin with, is thriving. She’s … Continue reading Simply Saturday
I updated my 2016 race schedule today… I added two additional marathons to my race plan this year. Why you ask? Are you insane you say? Well, I want to qualify to become a Marathon Maniac becoming a Double Agent this year (currently just a Half Fanatic!), I want to scratch the Eugene Marathon off my bucket list, and because I believe that the Eugene course … Continue reading yes, some insanity
