Running Reach the Beach #rtbrelay

I run relay races. The kind where 12 runners cover 200 miles in 24 hours, or in my team’s case more like 30-ish. I’ve done Ragnar but my hands-down favorite is the Reach the Beach series not only because we start at a mountain and run to the beach but also the organizers are awesome people … Continue reading

Big kid playtime

This is what happened when when I was left alone while my friend put her 3 year old to bed. There was also some coloring involved. Guess what it is!?!

This Friday night

I spent my Friday night with my best friend and her daughter and it was awesome. Getting to catch up with my bestie, enjoy play-do popcorn and watch her daughter feed ‘Robot’ as she’s taken to calling their cat was just what I needed after a long work week. We enjoyed a bottle of wine … Continue reading
