2013

2012 was a year of _______. I’m not sure what kind of year it was, at the end. At any given point, I could have filled in a hundred different adjectives to describe it. 2012 was a year of travel. I visited the Philippines three times and India twice in the second half alone; saw a friend in Nepal; visited Mexico, South Korea, Hawaii, Phoenix, San Diego, Illinois, Ohio, Miami, Tahoe, LA x4. I racked up frequent flier miles and hotel nights, amazing experiences and longing for home. 2012 was a year of growth. […] Continue Reading…

New Beginnings

Life has been a bit crazy lately. Since I last blogged I’ve taken two significantly lengthy trips to India, two significant trips to the Philippines, trips to Miami and several other destinations. I’ve experienced crazy things – the opportunity to visit a friend in Nepal while on a business trip, kiteboarding on a Philippine island, running down Miami Beach at sunrise, tackling ice baths at the Tough Mudder, and more. There have been a lot of great memories over the last several months. There has also been a lot of stress, a lot of tears, […] Continue Reading…

Introducing 30 x 30 (and 140.6 dreams)

image.png

Two weeks ago, I almost signed up for an Ironman. And I’m not talking about “I considered it for a brief moment and then realized that would be insane, so I let the moment pass.” I had all the credit card info entered. Was on the last page of the registration. Fingers shaking. And I couldn’t press the button. The end. Just kidding – so, I’ve always wanted to do an Ironman. Even before I’d ever run a marathon. and now that I’m getting a bit burnt out on marathons and looking to make the […] Continue Reading…

July (AKA “Sleep is for August”)

image.png

It’s July! This year has already been pretty insane for me and it’s about to get a heck of a lot crazier. First, HOW is 2012 already half over?!?! I mean, seriously. This year is absolutely flying by. In the first half of 2012, I’ve traveled to Hawaii, ran two marathons, taken trips to everywhere from Mexico to Illinois to Palm Springs to Tahoe to LA (three times), gotten stuck on the side of the road in a blizzard, fell in love with a new bike and promptly had it taken away, threw a bachelorette party, […] Continue Reading…

One More Year

IMG_1342.jpg

The times, they continue to change. I have a list as long as my arm – leg – okay, maybe body – about topics that I have wanted to blog about but hadn’t. the couple of posts a month is probably a really clear indication of how crazy life off of the computer has been. I have really needed to focus on joy right now and unplugging a bit. But as I have said before, a source of joy is this blog, which is causing me to set the goal of blogging 5 times this week. […] Continue Reading…

#1: Bike More, and a green giveaway!

0525_bike9.jpg

So much excitement for one long overdue post. Let’s see! Okay, last week I blogged about my desire to create an atmosphere of growth, with a variety of different goals. Today I want to jot a note about #1: Bike More. For those who don’t know (99% of you) I’ve been trying to bike to work here in the City. The issue is that I’ve been on a 40 pound, 15 year old clunker of a mountain bike, which works surprisingly well for its age, but left me wanting to take “walk breaks” on 1% grades.  I walked […] Continue Reading…
