My only resolution for 2013, was to jot down memorable moments throughout the year. These are the ones that made the cut.
Whether we want to lose weight, write a book, find a husband, finish a degree, have a kid or be our own boss, it can be incredibly hard to wait for the ‘paint’ to dry and follow the steps.
2012 had ups, downs & flat lines. Here’s my year in the rear view. What’s yours?
Some of My Favorite Moments of 2011: Ran my first 5k. My firecracker niece, Bella, turned 3. My quirky thug dog, Henry, turned 3. Jumped off a 35′ cliff and didn’t die, but learned how to live. Got heat stroke and spent 2 days laughing in a hospital with a new friend. Went on my […]
I went for a bike ride across the country this summer with the Ride:Well Tour. Spent 2 months with 14 amazing people. Felt the pavement of 7 states under my tires. Stayed in a hospital for 2 days because of heatstroke. Jumped off of a 35-foot waterfall. As a team, rode over 3k miles and personally […]

We rarely have Wi-Fi to post updates or play online, so when we find a coffee shop and some free time, we suck the ever-living cyber life out of them both. So, take a few (read: a lot) of minutes and ketchup with me on the road. Understatements of the Century: Mountains are tall. Deserts […]
Wow. This past Tuesday (the 10th), I posted and emailed that I needed $1,000 more to be able to make my upcoming bike trip. The money was due on Wednesday (the 11th) and I posted that I needed the money by the end of the week because, honestly, I didn’t believe the money would all […]
There was a day not so long ago that I was 99.99999% sure that I would never, ever…ever squeeze myself into a pair of spandex and walk outside to even get the mail, let alone hike my spandexed touche on a seat slightly larger than a kiwi and ride around like everything was A-OK. But […]
It happened. The eagle has landed. The ship has docked. The hen is in the house. The bear is in the cave. (Wait, I think that may mean something else…) Anyway… I finally got my bike!* And that indeed makes me too legit to quit. Like seriously, I can’t quit because I just shelled out […]
