My Best 5 Miles, and Harry’s New Backyard

Saturday I ran the Spring Lake 5, which I have run every year for the past few.  It’s a tradition for me, and signifies the beginning of the summer.  It’s always on the Saturday before Memorial Day, and it’s the largest 5 mile race in the country.  This year the entries sold out in 9 […]

Running Favorites

So my buddy Sarah tagged me in her post about running favorites, and honestly I forgot about it for a while!  I don’t have many runner friends with blogs that I can tag, but maybe I’ll work on finding some more blogs that I love and possibly making some friends. Location:  Trail, Road, or Indoors? […]

Trying to Hang on to that Wave

Some times things happen when you’re least expecting them.  I’ve been so distracted lately with visitors, traveling, and preparing for the end of my semester/getting ready for preceptorship, graduation, and moving on to my BSN.  Monday morning was catch up from traveling because I worked on Sunday, but Harry and I still had to go […]

Taking a Michi-gander

Our next adventure for spring break week was a trip to Michigan.  Josh is from there and moved to Jersey about eight years ago.  Between school and life and figuring everything out with Harry, we haven’t been out there much.  In fact, Harry had only met his Grandma Roni and Uncle Ben once when they […]

The Australians Come to Visit

Sorry for the delay in posting, but it’s been quite crazy around here!  We are on the road right now on the way back from Michigan, and before that we had our Australian friends visiting for a couple of days!  They have come out to visit us a couple of times now, and we are […]

Finally, a Good Snow Day!

Finally! We had a snow day today that I didn’t miss anything for!!  Every other snow day this semester has screwed me out of a lecture at school.  Today, we missed clinical, but that’s not too terrible as we had it last night.  I did, however, miss out on the gym, but I used my […]

30 Miles and I’m Officially Crazy!

This past week I ran 30 miles.  30.   In one week.  What’s wrong with me?  This running bug is like nothing else I’ve ever experienced in my life.  My buddy Kristen told me she read a quote that said something like “I ran and ran and then found myself”.  I couldn’t agree more with that […]

Hope, Help, and Healing

Yesterday, Harry and I had our weekly visit with our amazing chiropractor, Dr. Tyler Richards.  We always have the nicest conversations, and I always feel physically and mentally better when I leave.  I would highly recommend him, especially for pediatric patients.  He’s got a great bedside manner.  We talked about a lot of things that […]

11 Miles!!!

I got past 10 miles!!  Wahoo!!!! Let me just say that December and January were basically a wash for me.  Between the holidays and awful weather, I barely got outside to run.  Weather that I cannot run in is single digits or ice, and we had a lot of that.  At the end of January […]

Big Wheels Keep on Turnin’

Are you singing Proud Mary yet? Yes? Good. Sometimes life smacks you in a way that makes you take a huge step back and say Whoa.  Little trickles of things can suddenly start an avalanche so quickly. When I first started my journey in muscle disease (because let’s face it, Harry has his journey but I […]
