This past weekend I was in Portland, OR for The West Coast Planners Candy Shop, which is, you guessed it, a planner convention. I had an amazing time and met so many wonderful people I cannot even put the weekend into words. Just trust me when I say, it was worth every penny spent! I... Continue Reading →
Today is a WIN!
So, it seems that I just ended September with the best stats I have had…in well over a year. My run goal for 2019 was to hit 30 miles a month, and I have missed that goal a couple of months this year due to my neck injury. However, in September I ran 46.69 miles,... Continue Reading →
Last night was 5k Wednesday. Like most Wednesdays, I found myself at my favorite local park and I immediately got into exercise mode. I love this particular park because it has great hills, clear paths, and perfect scenery.

Finding Sanity for $31.17
Yesterday morning I woke up at 6:27am, which for me is sleeping in, and knew my morning would be hectic as Greg and I were going to see Avengers:Endgame at 10:25am and I wanted to get my morning workout done beforehand.

What is #onebookjuly and how I am setting up my planners to participate.
Finding your stride…
Yesterday, after work during my 5k run in the park, I got passed by a gentleman who was literally walking faster than I was running. He was about a foot taller than me and he had an extremely LONG stride, but even after realizing that, there was still something else about him that stuck out... Continue Reading →
