Lets try this again, 2018

Blogging…well, it fell by the wayside for me for the past several years. Maybe because I didn’t share enough, maybe because I wasn’t sure anyone wanted to read what I said. I’m not sure why, but I stopped.

Why am I back? That is an excellent question! I am looking for ways to reach out and share my life, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Ok, maybe more of the good…but I want to be real. I want to share what I am excited about and make friends with similar interests…and struggles.
Here is what has been happening:

  • I ran the Chicago Marathon in 2017! Ok, I walked a lot of it.
  • I have been battling with Achilles Tendonitis for what seems like forever. Honestly, it seems worse since I started “resting” more. 😦
  • I am now a high school librarian, and I LOVE it! Never thought I would be in a high school again…but I have so much fun, every day. 🙂
  • I am back in Graduate school for my Library Media Specialist Endorsement, at Northern Illinois University! #neverstoplearning
  • I am starting to do yoga regularly, because, despite the Achilles slowing me down, #realwomenmove and that includes me!

That is it for my comeback blog. Let’s see where this goes!

Thanks for reading!

Wow…what a year…and what a big ball dropped on keeping a blog.
Let’s try this again…

So many things to write about, but I want to see if I can even recall how to post something so this won’t be too long.

My running goal for 2014 was to run a half marathon every month. I accomplished that goal and then some! 🙂

I also, throughout my running year, had to say goodbye to my friend Tammy. She was diagnosed with Stage IV Lung cancer in June of 2013, and passed away on August 31, 2014. She asked me to fight the cancer and continue to run for her. Every run is for her, and noticeably WITH her. I can’t begin to describe what it is like to be always running for something so much bigger than you…and Tammy is always with me. We have good talks on long runs! 🙂 That is another post altogether.

I also ran two full marathons in 2014. Again…another post.

Ragnar introduced me to some amazing people, and again…another post.

So…you see, I guess I really should have kept up with my blog. I may start a separate Facebook page just for my running stuff, because I post there all the time.

Gotta run…sorry about the quick snipit. More to come later…before 2015! 🙂
