Timberman 70.3 2016 – A Love Hate Relationship


Four days after race day and my feelings are very mixed about the race. The memories of the pain are starting to fade and my mind starts to churn deciding whether I want to be a tri-athlete or not. Many people thought I was crazy to start off with a 1/2 Ironman, but I am happy I did for a whole host of reasons not the least of which is that a sprint or olympic distance tri will feel like a piece of cake now 🙂 


Throwback Thursday – Pond Skimming 2007


In honor of our big 1/2 Ironman adventure coming up this weekend, here is a throwback to arguably our most exciting adventure to date – Pond Skimming 2007! 

Layla’s Gotcha Day & Bisquick Egg Bake


Hi! Happy Wednesday! I can not believe it has been a whole year since we made the long car trip up to Winnebago, IL to pick up Layla. She was only 7 pounds when we picked her up, she’s now hovering around 50-55lbs and is full grown! It is absolutely crazy how quick puppies grow! When we first brought her home she was too small/afraid to walk down the stairs on her own so for the first few weeks we had to carry her! Now her paws barely touch the ground as she barrels up and down the stairs 🙂
