Tomorrow morning I will board a plane bound for Salt Lake City, Utah. It seems like I was there just yesterday for Blend Retreat. This time, it's for a completely different reason. I am running my first relay, and I have the honor of doing so with the Nuun Hydration team #HighNUUN , along with 5 other amazing women.
We will be running a total of 198.3 miles and over three mountain passes from beautiful Logan to Park City. Just six girls in a van doing the one thing that we love more than … [Read More...]
I love to cook and create recipes, in fact my whole family does.
I am so inspired by my Mom and both of my sisters. I am the youngest, and have always looked up to them in the kitchen and in life. So, when I was on the phone with my sister, Kim, the other day and she told me about a chocolate butter cup she whipped up, I knew I had to try it out myself. The result was so good, I had to share it with you!
This is a variation her recipe and I invite you to play around with it as well. … [Read More...]

Truth is, I just don't feel myself these days. I came off of a 12 day migraine, then ran a marathon, am now I'm knee deep in end of the school year craziness -- I just feel like this has sucked the life out me. I don't want to get up in the mornings, I am not motivated to write, do household duties or really do anything at all. So, I don't, and when I pause and relax for a moment, a wave of bordom and anxiety come crashing down on me.
Why relax? If I take some time off it will only compound … [Read More...]
Only Koo-Koo people pay money to wake up at 2:45am and run 26.2 miles. So that's what I did on Sunday morning along with about 1,500 other wonderfully nutty runners. Since the race was so early, and nearby, I left my husband at home with our kids this time and drove to the race with two of my running friends, Wendy and Michelle. I parked my car at the finish (the "beach") and Michelle drove us and parked at the start (the "mountains"). We waited in her warm car and only snuck out once to pee in … [Read More...]
I am not a huge fan of crowded places, strict agendas, and impersonal interactions. When I see the words "Blogger Convention" in an email or advertisment, I almost always hit delete. So I surprised myself when I signed up for the Blend Retreat Park City a few months ago. Let me back up, over a year ago, I remember seeing all of the blog posts about this new retreat that was in Boulder CO. It did not look like your typical conference. There was hiking, good food, friends and most important it … [Read More...]
