More from Shenandoah:




Pulled an old one off Cameron’s phone. My life: sweatpants, confused, on the floor with the dog, blogging.


Another gem from his phone. This is also pretty normal. *cough shelovesmemore cough*


And one more set of oldies- I found Le’s adoption photos from the website. Look at how small and scruffy she was! These were the photos that made us jump on getting the chance to see her! If you want to read about her adoption you can do it HERE.

Okay, back to more current pics: Rehoboth, DE – gotta document the abs when they decide to hang around.


And a few leftover from the wedding…


Cameron went to happy hour last night…and so did I. Got the Altra Torin 2.5 & Brooks Launch 3s. Went based soley on feel and not what I’m used to. I’m still gonna rotate my Saucony Kinvaras in the mix, but it should be interesting switching up brands. I’ll let you know how it goes!


Shout out to Van 2 Crew #HustlinHookers RaganarDC 2016


And another BIG THANK YOU to all the friends and family who donated to the 50K ultra I did over the summer. I (we) got a very nice letter in the mail, so I thought i’d let you guys see that your donations help make a difference. Thank you all again! (you can read about the ultra here and here).


OH and it’s Friday people. Here’s a virtual cheers to beers as big as my head!!


Ever switched shoe brands in the middle of marathon training?

What are your weekend plans, running and non-running!?


Phone Dump Friday: 1 Year Anniversary Edition!

Wednesday: 8.4m easy 8:58/p

Thursday: 6m easy 9:40/p

I know 3 posts from me in one week is not normal, but hey it’s our 1 year wedding anniversary and can’t miss this! We’ve been together for 8.5 years, married one year. It feels like we’ve been together forever in the best way and marriage is still super new and feels different in a much deeper, much more loving way. I’m not going to get too gooey on you though, i just wanted to share some pictures of us, old and new, some from the wedding and some from my personal stash. Enjoy!

First family trip to NC, been kickin’ it with Kyle and Elise for almost a decade…


same trip!


we dated long distance for the first 4 years of our relationship- so a lot of skypeing happened!

We’re heading out for an anniversary dinner with my in-laws and then off to Shenandoah National Park to hike for 2 days this weekend, keeping our camping tradition alive!

Married couples out there- how did you celebrate your first (or if it’s been too long, the most recent anniversary?)

Singles- do you camp?

ALSO- Shout out to my sister, it’s her 27th birthday today and now shares her b-day with our a-day!
