The Road to Western States (5/6); May is Moving Month!

In more ways that one, geeze! These past 6 weeks (yes I know May is only 4 weeks long, but this whole side project started in mid April) have been the MOST stressful 6 weeks of my entire life. In a good way, yes. But STRESSFUL none-the-less. Mid April we put in an offer on…

The Road to Western States (4th Edition)

Holy crap, where did the time go, how is it already May! April has seriously gone by in a flash. So much running, so much laundry, so much eating, so much love and time spend with friends on the trail. At least we’ve finally been able to be consistently on the trails! Kicked off the…

Up the mountain, down the mountain, repeat

Canyons 100K How did I end up here? About this time last year Kaycee won an entry into Canyons 100k for her service as an aid station volunteer for the 2016 race. What does she do? Turns around and recruits all her friends to run it too! Why not!? At the time I didn’t know…

The race I swore I’d never run

In 2014 I ran the 55K and I swore I would never do TRT again, not to even think about doing the 100 miler. I even told my husband to give me a hard slap if I even tried to sign up for the 100 miler. A lot has changed since 2014, I’ve grown incredible…
