A few months ago, while Covid cases were lower and few new cases were arising, I signed up for the Frost 2 Flowers spring race. It had been scheduled for the actual spring, but then was rescheduled and pushed back for July 18th. I was pretty excited to sign up for a real-live race withContinue reading “Frost 2 Flowers Virtual Half Marathon”
If you had asked me a few months ago how I thought societies would react to something like a pandemic, well I wouldn’t have painted nearly such a nice picture. Broadly speaking, I am rather skeptical of humans and our nature. When we are under stress, or adversity, they say our true character is revealed.Continue reading “Solidarity in a Time of Solitude”
Many of us have signed up and trained for races that have now been canceled due to COVID-19. Because of this, I decided to host a virtual half marathon 21k Social Distance Run. It will take place April 19th at 9:00 am your local time, wherever you may be in the world. We will allContinue reading “Half Marathon Social Distance Run”
We sat on the unknown, and still are. I talked with so many people around the world in similar situations as us. I weighed the pros and cons. Ultimately, who knows what the right decision is? We could have rode it out in Sarajevo and been fine. We could also ride it out in IdahoContinue reading “On Goodbyes”

We only have 3 months left of school, so we don’t know if that will happen or not, but of course we are hoping it does. It was a tough decision, as one cannot predictContinue reading “Traveling Home in a Pandemic”
Is this the end times? It feels like we have been mentally preparing for a while. Anyone with a pulse has noticed climate change, pollution at atrocious levels, corruption, politics, on and on it goes. People have been desperately clinging to zero waste and shouting into their social media about how the government isn’t doingContinue reading “Running in Covid-19 Times”
I got a little lost for a while. I was taking every hit. I was considering the rules and authority. I felt punished for being me. It’s not possible to keep the peace or pace anymore. I’m done. My weaknesses are real and tangible, but so are yours. There are cracks, but like Leonard CohenContinue reading “Midnight Ramblings”
It feels different when you run for others. Please consider supporting the migrants of Sarajevo while motivating me to get in gear for a full marathon in February. https://www.gofundme.com/f/sarajevo-migrants-in-need?utm_medium=copy_link&utm_source=customer&utm_campaign=p_na+share-sheet&rcid=8e0bff18138b4d729c3ea0039938c5e4 Thanks and stay rad, my running friends.
Blogger award time! I have not participated in one of these before, but my blogging buddy thedancingrunner nominated me and thought it looked fun. You should check out her site, she has some great posts. Thanks for nominating me! I will also nominate three more bloggers that deserve recognition and to pass on the love after I answerContinue reading “Mystery Blogger Award”
Ruminations of an average runner. That time I ran a bunch of races when I was pregnant.
