Last weekend we spent some time among the blue skies and red rocks at Zion’s National Park. What a  beautiful place!  The contrast of the bright blue skies and the red rocks, sand, virgin river flowing through with big cottonwood trees, junipers and pinyon pines is just stunning.  The rock formations are breathtaking.  It’s also wonderful to hear [...]

Oh New York. It has been to long since I’ve experienced your energy, seen your beauty, ate your food, smelt your subways, mingled with your people. It’s good to be back again.

March 20, 2013 | Adventures | Permalink

We did it.  We ran the moab half marathon! We didn’t end up training as good as we had hoped,  I injured my neck and B was supportive in that neck injury, so our longest run was 4.4 miles.  I literally only ran 7 miles total before running this race, so I’m just glad that [...]

I may be more like walk-running, but my goal [...]

Let’s talk about road trips.  They are so awesome.  I grew up with road trips each summer.  Red and white van.  UT -> PA, all 9 of us.  Some of the most wonderful and happy memories of my childhood spent in that 12 passenger van, on the highway, headed to Nanny & Pop-pop’s house on 53 Potts Avenue, Pennsylvania.

When I was 25 I had a quarter life crisis.  I dated 3 boys in a row my 24th year and things didn’t work out.  My heart got hurt a little and I needed some adventure and change… So, I quit my job (that I loved) and took another opportunity to go live and work [...]
