Coming back and why I disappeared

It has been a very very long time since my last post.  To be honest I am pretty unsure as to what I really want to write about now.  I am preparing a race recap for RNR Nashville that I ran over the weekend and I am planning on getting back into writing on a regular basis. 
First up, why I stopped.  For me blogging is a very personal venture.  I put out there what goes on in my daily life and how I feel about everything.  The last several weeks of my life have been very hard and instead of using my page as a complaint area I chose to stay away.  I want my blog to be positive and hopefully help inspire a few people here and there.

A quick recap of what has been going on with me….
  • I have participated in a couple races…Kal-Haven Trail Relay and RnR Nashville: I will recap both soon. 
  • I have an injury.  I have been fighting a foot injury since the first part of March.  I have had x-rays, a bone scan and am currently in physical therapy.  They still do not know what is wrong and I am making an appointment with a second podiatrist to see if they can figure it out.  My PT thinks it may be the actual structure of my foot that is causing the pain when I run.
  •  I have been chosen to be an Ambassador for The Color Run Shine Tour in Grand Rapids Michigan.  I will talk more about this later but if you are signing up use code grandrapids2 for a great discount!
  • I completed my 2nd 20 miler and realized afterward that I would not be running the full marathon at RnR Nashville.  My foot wouldn’t make it that far.  I dropped down to the half <—was a great decision.
  • I have rediscovered who I am on a very different level.  I have been having a blast doing so and this has helped me see things in a light I had forgotten about.
  • I have also eaten more junk food than I should.  Not running does that to me! 
  • I have ran less than 30 miles total for April and that includes 2 races…one 8 miles and one half marathon! 


2nd 20 miler 3/21


Yeah I had fries!
I am back!  And hopefully you all will support me in this once again!

  1. Congrats on your races! I'm so sorry you weren't able to run your full after all that hard work. It must have been very disappointing, but it sounds like you made the right decision and are keeping your chin up about it.

    Glad you're back and look forward to hearing about your adventures lately!
