On the Road Again

After 2 weeks of feeling like all we were doing is driving we are finally back in the PNW. When we first made the decision to do the “Van Life” thing, we promised our families we would return to the PNW for the holidays….

Racing, Family, and More Racing

It has been quite some time since I have posted and a lot has taken place; several big races and family visits. We continue to love this lifestyle, spending almost all of our time together, racing, training and visiting with friends and family along…

Oh, Canada and Beyond

As I sit here in Ohio, with 2 days until our big marathon, I am thinking about all the places we have been since our last big race in Minnesota. Our plan after SwimRun Minnesota was to head north to Canada to visit our…

Black Hills and Badlands

I have always valued my friendships and felt that quality is much more important than quantity. Having friends that really know me, really care about me and really support me is invaluable. These friendships remain even while we are on the road, but trying…

Cowboy Town

The past several weeks have been difficult for both David and me. At the end of May, a few days before the DK200, David’s father passed away. This was not completely unexpected but it was not any less painful. David and I had made…

New Places, New Friends

When I thought about this post my intention was to write a race report about the Boston Marathon. That race was epic, to say the least, it was cold and windy with a deluge of rain the entire 26.2 miles. But as I sit…

Time Well Spent

  It has been a bit over 3 weeks since we left Seattle and I still cannot believe how many amazing people we have met and how much we have seen and done. If you haven’t noticed by now, David and I are not…

Leap of Faith

As I sit here on a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon while both David and Mira nap after a fun filled morning, I can’t help but think about the week we have had since leaving Seattle. How fortunate I am to be sitting here with…

Training and Traveling

Now that David, Mira and I have begun our travels, my goal is to post weekly updates of our training, racing and traveling adventures. I have had quite a lot of people ask how we will continue to train while we are living the…

New Year, New Adventures

Happy New Year. I hope everyone had a festive and safe holiday season with lots of love, laughter and fun. We were able to enjoy family time while trying to balance work, the van build and training. This time of year finding the right balance can be a bit of a challenge.

Change Brings Opportunity

Change is never easy, even if it is something that you desire. It can be very scary venturing into the unknown, but it can also be extremely rewarding and bring about new opportunities you never could imagine. It can be the start of a…
