Goals, weekend and training update

We had a fairly calm weekend compared to what they’ve been recently. I didn’t have anywhere I had to be on Saturday except to run. I got 7 miles in, struggled, but it got done. Caught the last half of Ally’s softball practice, caught up on laundry and a little cleaning. Ally decided to clean […]

Turn “I can’t” into “I will”

I can’t is no longer in my vocabulary. If it’s in your vocabulary, I’m hoping you find the courage to scratch it. When you find the courage to go after what you want, things change. You change. You realize you are capable of so much more than you ever thought possible.   It doesn’t matter […]
