Meanwhile, back at the ranch....
I could say these posts are for sharing pieces of my personal story, thinking-out-loud posts, and things I'm really excited about. Honestly, it's mostly about Moxie.
It’s no secret that running is my main squeeze, and so far I’ve been lucky it still feels good halfway through my pregnancy. However, I need strength and conditioning work to feel my best even when I’m NOT pregnant.

Here’s a little life update. I had zero idea what to title it so…we’re going with the pregnancy timeline thing. A few notes on that before moving on to other things. Pregnancy culture is weird.

I’d like to start this life-casting post by stating that I won my first week of fantasy football and was the highest scoring team in my league. Never mind that my league consists of a child and 4 out of 7 adults who don’t really care. Winning is winning. Go Sports! The details of making… [Read More]
If you’ve met me in real life, seen my instagram photos, or even read a blog post or two, you’d be able to guess that I love my performance apparel. I’ve never been a fashionista for street wear or party dresses, but when it comes to what I plan on sweating in, I’m suddenly all about… [Read More]

Oregon Wine Country This Saturday I’ll be running the Oregon Wine Country Half Marathon in my new home, Yamhill County. There are several tiny towns here brimming with tasting rooms, local curiosities, and good eats.

Before I reveal Wonder Woman (or RUNder Woman?), DYK that there are two giveaways I have going on right now? 1) GIANT Designer Protein product giveaway (with all their brands) ends tonight. 2) Yurbuds Giveaway with RunThisYear also ends tonight. Okay, moving on. A few months ago, I was invited to do this event by… [Read More]
