This is 46+ a little bit

WOW….Time flies whether you are having fun or not! Though I am happy to say I have had a lot of fun I have been terrible with my posting on my blog…I need to share more of what I do in fact write! I didn’t want to just post about how training is or isn’t […]

From “To Do” to “Ta-Da!”: Chicago Marathon Part 1

From “To Do” to “Ta-Da!”: Chicago Marathon Part 1

I can now call myself a Chicago Marathon Finisher. 2 weeks ago, I crossed a finish line I didn’t think I would ever cross! I have worked this event in one way shape or form for the last 25 years! Last year I decided to run it! I always thought I wouldn’t originally because I […]

I skipped out on my sort of monthly since my birthday posts. Things have been crazy, and time flying! I can not believe it’s the middle of October! I still feel like it isn’t even August yet…alright, then I go outside and it’s a bit chilly but… So it has been a little over 3 […]

Planning…why am I so stressed!?!?

Planning…why am I so stressed!?!?

I am sitting here waiting for the tennis team I am working with today to finish up practice (they are outside today!) so I can finish up and head home. While I am waiting I am catching up, doing paperwork, a little online shopping, and making a plan for 2018. This is not the entire […]

Presenting…Rhiannon

Presenting…Rhiannon

Some of you have seen her. Some of you (actually only a couple of you) know her name. I have been “auditioning” it for awhile. Yes. I name things (like ALL things-don’t ask haha!). Rhiannon is my Cervelo P2 Tri bike. Do you know where the name is from? Not Rhianna. Nope. Much cooler. Rhiannon […]

Prepping for Fall

Prepping for Fall

The last couple of weeks have been amazing weather-wise; making it difficult to believe that Fall is here! Fall is football season. Fall is Marathon season. The end of Triathlon season. The prep for winter running…oh wow, so much more too! I try to go to as many Northwestern football games as possible. I work […]

Playing Dress-Up or Living Dress-Up?

Playing Dress-Up or Living Dress-Up?

I am not quite sure when it all began really. Difficult to say. This has been a part of me as long as I can remember. Trying on Mom’s shoes. Always carrying around purses and trying on hats. Wearing my Grandmother’s jewelry. Some of my earliest memories were spent in “costume fashion”. Games played daily…house, […]

International Women’s Day!

International Women’s Day!

International Women’s Day commemorating the movement for women’s rights began in 1909, originally called International Working Women’s Day.  Since 1917 it has been celebrated on March 8 every year. I am 43 years old, and I am still in the process of becoming the woman I am meant to be. Some find it quickly, many more struggle […]
