Vacation is over and I'm back to work. It was a lot of fun but as always it's nice to get home and I really missed my husband. He didn't come with me, since he grew up close to Disneyland he went many times as a kid. I always joke that it wa... Read more

I went on a different hike this weekend, it's more of a grind than a hike. Ok, its completely a grind. 3.5K uphill with very, very few flat patches. I am not even going to pretend they were straight stretches, they were patches. The hike s... Read more

Usually this time of year it's very slow at work and I get to enjoy some down time. I like to work out on my deck in the sun and enjoy several weeks of just rewriting training material and get ready for the fall. Knowing this I knew this was ... Read more

Last night I did another run to my daughter's. It was after a long day, I was tired and I hit that moment where if I didn't get my butt out the door right now I'd convince myself to drive instead. Knowing that I was already tired I accepted t... Read more

Today is my youngest's birthday, she's 21 and I decided that today was the perfect day to run to her place instead of driving. I originally thought it was 3.5 but it turns out it was 4.5, I did it in 32:30 mins. Woot! The road between ou... Read more
