Race You to the Castle

Wow, this is it. The last race recap of the Dopey Challenge! I can’t believe how long it has taken for me to write this. I was so emotional for the week after the races and I’m still struggling to accurately capture my feelings in writing but let’s give it a shot! I woke up […]

He loves running. He hates me and he hates running more. Have you ever tried training your teen to run the Gate River Run 15k or for that matter any race longer than a couple of feet? It is fun and inspirational one day, and a death march and complain fest the next. I am […]

Me, Myself and Tri

I’ve been rather quiet on here the last couple of months, because I’ve been a bit grumpy. Why am I grumpy? Because I’m injured! I have a very sore foot, which is taking a long time to get better. It first started hurting after the marathon back in November, and then I was a bit […]

Loving Life Even with Rheumatoid Arthritis

So, I had another week long flare-up that impacted my ability to walk. You do not appreciate simple things in life until you are no longer able to do them. Getting up to use the restroom. Getting a drink of water when you are thirsty. Basic things we do every day. I was unable to […]

The Wanderful Life

I write this as I wait for my emergency headache medication to kick in. I hate taking Relpax because it makes my head feel as if someone’s smeared MaxFreeze (or Icy Hot, or Biofreeze, or Bengay, or whatever icy burning cream you know) all over my brain; it makes my already aching body hurt all […]
