Race Recap: Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville Half Marathon


A year ago, I registered for the 2017 Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville Half Marathon. At the time, I was running less than ten miles a week at most. Apparently, I had high hopes for a comeback because I registered with an expected finish time of 2:15, a PR. Fast forward to now and those high hopes […]

A New Plan for My Spring Races


I need a new plan for my spring races. Almost a year ago, I registered for the Nashville Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon. I wasn’t running a ton at the time, but had no doubt in my mind that I would be ready for 13.1 by the time the race rolled around. A friend is […]

Getting Life Back to Normal


The last month of life was anything but normal as I spent as much time as I could with my grandma in her last days. Losing her wrecked me in a way I never imagined possible. But, I know that she wouldn’t want me to be sad. I know that she wouldn’t want me to […]

We plan, God laughs, right? Or, so the saying goes. In so many ways, 2017 was off to an amazing start. I spent most days with a big smile on my face, feeling over the moon happy about my life. A month ago, I wrote a post catching up on life. I shared that I […]

Life Lately


For the first six weeks of 2017, I blogged with a newfound consistency. I had a good rhythm, the words flowed easily, and it was fun again. For a long stretch, blogging wasn’t fun anymore.

Technically, I didn’t finish Whole30 because I added grains back into my diet the last week. But, I was at the point that my overall health and well-being was suffering, so […]

What I Read: January 2017


Rather than doing reviews for every book I read, I thought I’d join in the ranks of Laura and Caroline with a monthly recap. I’m hoping to read a lot more in 2017, so this feels like an easier way to capture everything. Plus, if there’s a dud, I can still acknowledge it without a full review. […]

Whole30 Update: Week 4


As I write this, I’m on my last day of Whole30! I (kind of) made it to the end! I’ll do a full recap next week of my overall thoughts and feelings. If you’ve got any Whole30 related questions, leave a comment and I’ll touch those. But first, let’s talk about last week, shall we? […]

2017 Workouts, Week 5


After last week’s slog fest, it felt amazing to have energy again! Including the miles I ran today, which will be in next week’s recap, I’ve run almost as many miles thus far in February as I did in all of January! I’m back in training mode and, despite the slow miles, it feels good […]
