Where Did I Come From?

Anyone reading this who knows my usual posts probably think this is about one of those tricky parenting conversations. It’s actually not, at all. We’ve had those, though, and they are tricky! And funny. And Ronnie and I tend to explain very differently so Skyler is pretty thoroughly confused at this point, but nevertheless, that’s …

Sandwiches

This post has pretty much nothing to do with food. But it’s the only word I could come up with to sort of tie together all the random things I’m about to write. These are the hardest posts to title. So, “sandwiches” it is. Hopefully it will make sense when I’m done typing. The week …

31 Heroes

What makes the natural awesomeness of a three-day-weekend even more awesome? When the highlight is a really cool fundraiser. On Saturday, Ronnie and I had the honor of participating in our local Kansas City 31 Heroes workout, hosted by CrossFit Lee’s Summit, a memorial fundraiser taking place nationwide and even overseas, to raise money and …

Out with the Old…

Labor Day is next weekend already! That means my favorite season is coming to a close, and it’s a little disappointing because I don’t feel like we’ve done nearly enough summery things this year. Other than hanging at the pool, we only made it out on a boat one time, and that was at the …

One Track Mind

Even though it’s only been a few days of this intense work and promotion of Ronnie’s gym, I get worried we’re annoying our Facebook friends. With the build in full force right now, we are pretty obsessed with getting this thing off the ground. He’s spending 12 hour days at the space getting things setup, …

Labor of Love

It’s finally here! The thing I haven’t been able to write about, I am writing about! Today, all the planning and scheming that Ronnie has been doing for well over a year, took shape in it’s physical form. We got the keys and set foot for the first time in the space that is quickly …

On a Mission

Time flies. I get a few blog posts up and think I’m back on a roll to regular blogging. And then two weeks go by, and all I have to post is a personal mission statement. No really. I’ve never been a big believer in mission statements. Seems a little fluffy; you know, makes me …

Let’s Do This

My plans and resolutions for 2011: – Learn to do 15 consecutive pull-ups. I’d like to do that in the next 3 months. After that, make pull-ups a regular part of my workout routine. – Continue chipping away at my running pace. Take 1 – 2 minutes off my current best 5K race time. – …

Moving Target

This time around I say it will be different. I won’t get discouraged or off track. I’ll keep my focus. I’ll dig deep for the strength and energy on days where it doesn’t come easy. This time, I’ll reach my goal. I’ve said this before restarting my workout habit SO. MANY. TIMES. And it generally …
