Anyone that knows me knows that I rarely wear heels. It’s just not my thing. Yet, I wore heels during recruitment week as an incoming freshman at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. In hindsight, that was a really bad idea. I could barely walk home at the end of each day. I remember wanting the
You know what’s difficult to keep up with? This whole blog thing. I want to be better about it. I really do, but I just haven’t found my groove with it yet. I’m trying to map out a weekly plan for it that will hopefully help, but we’ll see. Before I talk about the week,
In honor of International Women’s Day, I wanted to share a few of my favorite quotes about (and by!) strong women: “Success is better than failure, but it doesn’t teach you as much.” – Jane Campion “We realize the importance of our voices only when we are silenced.” – Malala Yousafzai “Take criticism seriously, but not personally.
I have to be honest: This last week of running was pretty tough. Only Sunday’s run felt good, and even that ended with a bit of a sore note. Needless to say, I’m ready for a new week. But before I can start a new week of training, let’s recap the last week, shall we?
I have an hour and a half to get this published before it’s no longer Monday. Talk about leaving it until the last minute. Whoops? Before I get into last week’s running recap, I do have to say thank you for all the love and support in response to yesterday’s blog. Y’all are great. Mean
Today marks one year since the accident that changed my life. It happened on February 26, 2016, a Friday then. I remember sitting on the side of the road, burned and broken. I had no idea at that time of what lied ahead. I could spend this blog post rehashing what happened. Telling you about the
I still have yet to find my voice around here beyond themed posts, but that’s OK. I’m brainstorming. I have things I’ll eventually share. Until then, here’s another week of my ‘Friday Five.’ This week I’m focusing on the five songs I enjoy running to (right now, at least). Here we go (in no particular
I’m going to be honest: My first week of half-marathon training was rough. The good news is that I’ve got a stellar training partner (which is why he got the header photo, because he’s great!) and we’re keeping at it. That doesn’t mean it hasn’t been difficult to stay motivated though. When I ran my first
I’m still trying to sort through this whole blog thing but I’m trying. I’ve found that themes help, but I’d eventually like to get to a point where I just write. Soon enough. In the meantime, I’ve decided that each Friday I’m going to do a top five list of some sort. It could be
Today marks the first day of half-marathon training for the Lincoln Half-Marathon on May 7. I’m following the same training plan I’ve always used, which is the Novice 1 program from Hal Higdon. I am nothing but a creature of habit. I decided to use “Motivation Monday” as a way to motivate myself and hold myself
First, a big ol’ shout out to Fetty Wap for the name of my first blog post. I credit my lack of creativity and Alli Pane’s song title idea for posts over on her blog for it (I swear I’m not stealing your idea, Alli. Just this once though.) And second… Welcome. I have no idea
