{Quiet Week}

I feel like I’ve been a bit MIA this week with regards to blogging. The past few days were very busy, but a good busy!

{Sweat Cute}

While running and training, I really enjoy having … Continue reading

I’ve never been, and I must say, it’s a beautiful city, I really enjoyed it! We had a gorgeous day! Could not have asked for more perfect … Continue reading

{We Survived}

Holy cow. We did it. It took 5 1/2 hours (I estimated 2! Yes… TWO) to complete. Our team of 5 is battered, bruised, and insanely happy. I can honestly say I encountered the most difficult mud run to date today, & am so pleased to be considered a part of the “Hardcore Army”. Our … Continue reading
