It has been quite a while since I’ve posted, but I’m back! I think the business of the year and the culmination of my A goal (completing my 1st ultra) just took a lot out of me. It’s easy to get swept up in all else that is going on and just keep saying “Well, maybe tomorrow I’ll have time.” As I’m thinking about plans and goals for 2018, I know that one of them is going to be to keep up this blog as both an outlet for me and hopefully great information for those of you reading it.
A lot has transpired for our household in the 2nd half of 2017 – here’s a recap:
August ~ I went to Oiselle’s (Volee) Bird Camp, and it was a-mah-zing! I had a wonderful time meeting new teammates and doing what I love for the long weekend. I still need to write a post on this.
September ~ We moved! September was a crazy month of preparing to move, trying to sell our old house, painting the new house, figuring out where shit goes…!!!
October ~ Cowbelling! I cheered with my Oiselle teammates at the Chicago Marathon until after the sweepers came. Also, Halloween <3
November ~ First and foremost – my baby girl turned 12! I tried out cross country with an IL Volee masters team. It was cold, rainy, and pretty fun!
December (to this point…) ~ Concerts galore – band, choir, Christmas… and then there’s winter running and these stairs!
