Today is where your book begins. The rest is still unwritten. ~Natasha Bedingfield, Unwritten


I love this song, Unwritten, because it’s a great reminder about living life and moving forward. 

Yeah, yesterday happened, but today is a new day. New things can happen. New adventures.

So…what’s your story going to look like today?


When things are a disappointment, try not to be so discouraged. -Carol Burnett


I experienced a big disappointment yesterday. I wasn’t able to finish my 50k race. 

My first DNF (Did Not Finish). Knew it would happen sooner or later, that’s just how things go sometimes, but yeah, it stung. 

So now I get to practice the “try not to be so discouraged” part of things.

I’m sad, and that’s okay, but I’m also thankful I was able to be out there at all.

I’m blessed with the love and joy of running, the physical health (for the most part) to do it, and a great support network to help me do it. 

I’ll write a race report later, but for now, I’m a bit sad, but I’ll get back out there soon. 


Come what may, all bad fortune is to be conquered by endurance. ~Virgil


Even if you have to move at a snail’s pace, keep moving forward. You will get through whatever you’re facing. 

Stay strong.

Never give up. 

You can do this!


Success is due to our stretching to the challenges of life. Failure comes when we shrink from them. -John C. Maxwell


When I‘m trail running, I often stop and look at the trails behind me—usually, when I get to the top of a big hill.

I do that because I want to see what I’ve just conquered. Where I’ve come from. It helps to see that I just did something pretty hard and survived.

Sure, I might be sucking dust after a monster climb, but I made it. And I can make the next one. Even if I have to walk, I can do it, because I just did.

So, stop and take a look at where you’ve come from. What you’ve conquered. It might be a nice reminder that you ARE strong. You CAN do it. You WILL survive.
