Let’s catch up

It's been a while. I'm sorry. I've been processing and planning a wedding (my son's) and learning my new job at my old office which brings me so much joy and continuing to work on my mental health and recover from what I went through from 2019-2022. I once heard a Christian leader say that… Continue reading Let’s catch up

Stopping the sprint

One of my favorite things to do when running is to sprint at the end... As I approach my distance or speed goal, I turn on the jets. On a treadmill, I tend to jog between 4.8 and 5.4, but when I sprint, I crank up that dial well into the 7s and even sometimes the 8s. At first my body screams, there is NO way you can sustain this for a minute... but I focus. I keep my head up. I count backwards in my head from 60. I focus on my breathing. I focus on the placement of my feet. And I smile from ear-to-ear as I cross that imaginary finish line and turn the machine back down to a walk.

My Sister

My sister, Randi, is five years older than me. We fought harder than any two sisters and we loved harder than any two sisters. We have been each other's champions and loved to annoy each other. We laughed and put on shows in our living rooms and made some epic Barbie movies together. It may… Continue reading My Sister
