Hello From Utah!

Alternate title: What Are Utah-kin About?  And that’s the only Utah pun I could come up with. Hello from the other side…of the country…slightly inland! I’m in Utah! I flew out last Tuesday and don’t return home until this Wednesday, so it’s been a long trip. And yes, I am really missing Ellie. And Brian. […]

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Is Valentine’s Day a totally cheesy Hallmark holiday? Yes. But am I totally feeling it this year? ALSO YES. I’ve been in a nonstop good mood for like five days straight, and that’s the longest streak I’ve had since roughly November 9. I’m going to keep riding this high, and in the spirit of the […]

Every Day I’m Hustlin’

I just couldn’t think of a better title. And I think I’ve used “Life Lately” like 38 times already. So…every day I’m hustlin’. Because I have been! The past week has felt like a whirlwind, and it feels so good. I feel like I have a million things on my plate right now, and I enjoy that […]

A Lighter Look At Life Lately

I started writing this post by laying into all the harshness, nastiness, and all-around terribleness of the internet lately. Beyond just the political climate — can I get an ugh? — the internet feels extra harsh lately. But then I realized, hey! It’s not just the internet! It’s everywhere! I wish I could embrace a total […]

Dear 2017…

Dear 2017, It’s so nice to make your acquaintance! I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about you. I’ve been sick for a few months now, so I didn’t know if 2017 would be the year I stayed sick — or worse, got sicker — or if it would be […]

My Best Of 2016

At most recent glance, 2016 was hardly a banner year. On the global stage, the tragedies have seemed endless, the political situations, well, dire. There’s been a steady stream of sad celebrity deaths, and the internet seems to be fueled with more rage and hostility than ever before. And that all sucks. On the personal […]

New York City Marathon 2016 Recap

Yesterday was the best day ever. The past two and a half months have included many not-so-best days ever. So I just wanted a day. I wanted one day to run the New York City Marathon, because I knew that one day would have the power to overshadow all the dark days I’ve seen lately. […]

New York City Marathon Training: Week 14

LAST WEEK WAS AWESOME. Warning: This post contains an excess of exclamation points. I’ll have an update tomorrow about all-things-Crohn’s and where they stand, but I am going to insist that getting out for a run last weekend is what put me on the road to recovery. At that point, I hadn’t started on any medication and […]

New York City Marathon Training: Week 13

I thought I was done with my training recaps since, let’s be honest, am I really “training” right now? But this week had some little victorious and big breakthroughs, and I wanted to document them! This week marked my return to running and, more excitingly, my return to outdoor running! I’ve spent so little time […]
