My IG profile proclaims, “sometimes, I blog!” Sometimes is well, loose. But, in the event that anyone is clicking it, here are some important anti-racism resources (because Black lives MATTER) that have been compiled and graciously shared. It’s important that we do the work to seek out resources. It’s also important that we save and… Continue reading Anti-Racism Resources
I’ve been listening to Amends by Buffering the Vampire Slayer on repeat lately. “So here we are in December…” What are you listening to?
A 2020 Preface: I do not support JKR. I do support the trans community. I still love Harry Potter and I am a part of a fantastic inclusive group of fans. The death of the author critique tells us that the books are OURS from the moment we read them, not the author’s. Love HP.… Continue reading Life Peak

We all have time for the things that are priorities in our life and it’s quite clear this blog hasn’t been a priority. I would like it to be more of a… Continue reading Childhood Cancer Awareness Month 2017
This past Sunday was the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Half Marathon and Marathon, but today’s story starts a little earlier than that… then it takes a couple turns. 🙂 In 2008, not even a month after I signed up with Team In Training, I volunteered to help them with the “half marathon finish line”… Continue reading It’s a Rock ‘n’ Roll Story
Remember when I said I’d get back to what I did after the 10K? I always keep my promises. But, before we get there… we have to start here. Last November, I ran the Infinity Gauntlet Challenge with Kellsie’s Krew. I enjoyed my experience and was so impressed with everything Kellsie’s Hope Foundation does that I signed… Continue reading Running with Kellsie’s Krew [and What Happens Between Races]
