I’m turning 33 this month. Yay! But… that’s the bait. Here is the switch. As there is no sense in being fancy-worded about this, I’ll just blurt it out. My cousin will die if he doesn’t get a new liver (diagnosis: Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis) so I’m going to give him part of mine. I’ll explain more… [Read More]
Generosity is the key to success.
In order to really thrive, I believe we all have to give generously. These posts are about giving my best, giving back, and even a few old school giveaways now and then.
Disaster preparedness? What, are we doomsday preppers now? No, we don’t have a bunker or a stockpile of dehydrated food (or do we?).

It’s mostly about being a generous person, especially when it comes to serving others. So today, I’m handing the… [Read More]
So I’m in my kitchen, frozen in a quarter squat position for what seems like forever. Everything is still. Everything but one mondo sized fly making his way in and out of the canned lights in the kitchen ceiling. Finally he settles and I, like a spring-loaded Tigger, fly up in the air, swatting like mad….

While living in perpetual summer (Southern California) had it’s benefits, moving back to the Pacific Northwest has been the best decision for us. Lush green forests that change with the seasons are more than enough eye candy to offset the fact that, well…seasons = varied weather. But hey, runner’s still gonna run, right?

Last week, a group of singing orphans from India and Ethiopia had no place to sleep. The choir of 18 children and their handful of leaders were scheduled to perform in Salem, Oregon but their housing plans fells through.

There is just so much fun run news to talk about this week! So I figured I’d wrap it all up in one post. Running Stroller Pride Okay, I saw this and had to share because this guy ran a half marathon in 1:11 while pushing his 11 month old daughter in a stroller. Calum Neff not only won… [Read More]
