Back from Vegas! (hiking pics included)
Thursday, May 23, 2013      1 comments

Whew, crazy times! It's been super busy here so I haven't made it back to Spark. I had a work trip to San Antonio in late April and then a vacation to Vegas to celebrate my 30th birthday in early May. Since coming back from Vegas, I've struggled... Read more
A Strange Thing Happened This Morning...
Thursday, April 11, 2013      5 comments

I woke up at 4:30 AM fired up to run. That was half an hour before my alarm went off to get me up to run. A couple of years ago, I'd only run before work if it was the only time I could fit it into the training schedule that I was on. And ... Read more
Week 3 of Insanity and a 45 mile relay race
Monday, April 08, 2013      3 comments

I'm finally starting to make some noticeable progress in 2013! Very excited about this. I finished week 3 of Insanity last week and it's reached the point of routine. I don't really think about doing it, I just do it and move on. That's the poin... Read more
Body Image and my 5 Year Old
Wednesday, March 27, 2013      4 comments

This is something that has been on my mind a lot lately. I recently read a post by Fit Mama Training fitmamatraining.com/ . Her backstory: she grew up hating her body and knew about "fat" as early as 4. As an adult, she went from... Read more
Insanity - Week 2
Tuesday, March 26, 2013      3 comments

I just finished my first full week of Insanity and I'm on to week two this week. Here are my thoughts so far: Day 1 - the fit test. I was really excited to do this. I wanted to see just how in shape I was. A lot of my friends are doing Insa... Read more
From Insane to Insanity
Wednesday, March 20, 2013      3 comments

I'm ashamed to admit I jumped ship a bit since my last entry. I've been here for years. I've had my ups and downs, but I've always been committed to health or at least known the right way to it if not actively practicing it. But for some reason,... Read more
Holy Consistency
Friday, March 08, 2013      3 comments

It's March already! I'm in the zone and loving it. My daughter was out with the flu for FIVE days this week and even that wasn't enough to knock me off track. I missed several workouts and had a few higher calorie days, but am still ending this ... Read more
Feeling a bit like a science experiment lately...
Thursday, February 21, 2013      4 comments

Yeah, I'm just going to jump in like I haven't been gone for a while. I'm an inconsistent Sparker. I'm just going to accept it. I just can't always make it here, though I'd like. I'm always thinking of you guys though! :) So my latest thing... Read more
Can I learn to CrossFit by Next Week?
Friday, November 16, 2012      5 comments

I live in rural Kansas. I've been hearing a lot about CrossFit, but it's not available in my area. But next week I'm traveling to have Thanksgiving with my parents and I went to sign up for my Turkey Trot or Thanksgiving 5K. I did this last year... Read more
I'm back...and full of joy!
Tuesday, November 13, 2012      6 comments

After a crazy two weeks of flu and work travel, I'm ready to get back to normal routine. I did ok with the travel. I was away from most tracking and communications so I apologize for that, especially to my Fall Challenge team. I even missed a ve... Read more
Inconsistent Sparking
Monday, November 05, 2012      4 comments

I have been and probably will be a bit MIA on Spark for a bit. The stomach flu and colds hit our house - at the same time. So it's been survival mode to keep my daughter and I going. She is back at school today and I'm back at work, but now I fl... Read more
So much going on...and it's all good!
Monday, October 22, 2012      4 comments

This was a lot easier to keep up on when I was blogging every day or nearly every day for my September challenge! I've been meeting a lot of goals lately and really keeping the ball rolling. It feels great to have momentum and to reap the r... Read more
Recovery Hike (mostly pics!)
Tuesday, October 16, 2012      8 comments

After Sunday's half marathon, I wanted an easy day. My legs don't feel too bad and the weather was beautiful yesterday so I decided to do something I'd been putting off - find a trail! I knew there was a wilderness park not too far from my house... Read more
Mother Road Half Marathon - Year 3
Monday, October 15, 2012      7 comments

I ran the Mother Road Half Marathon yesterday. It was my second time running the half. I ran the full the first year. I can't remember how many half marathons I've run. I believe I'm nearing 10. At the moment, the exact number doesn't matter to ... Read more
Running Friends - Honey Stingers?
Friday, October 05, 2012      4 comments

I have a half marathon in a week, and I've been experimenting with fuel. Most kinds seem to irritate my stomach. I mostly choose to go without. I recently tried honey stingers because I'd heard of runners on spark using them and happened t... Read more
