North Face Endurance Challenge WI starting line

This is a photo from the starting line of the North Face Endurance Challenge WI, which was back in September. I guess this qualifies as a #tbt. It was a gorgeous day! I never did a race report for this half marathon, but it was fun and the weather was perfect. The End.

MKE FILM Festival

My daughter and I closed down the Milwaukee Film Festival last night with the movie, The Surface, which was filmed in Milwaukee and starred Sean Astin and Chris Mulkey. We stayed after for the Q&A with the filmmakers and the actors, then my daughter (bless her bravery and guts) demanded that we not leave before […]

On October 3rd we celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary. Woah, 18 years! It seems like it was only yesterday that we were on our honeymoon in Door County and I was standing on a street corner in Fish Creek, looking at my husband out of the corner of my eye and realizing that he was […]


It’s the last day of September, which is somewhat surreal because it feels like only yesterday it was June.

I spent my summer watching Metastasis. All summer long I looked forward to watching Walter and Jose stumble through their lives while cooking the blue meth. It’s no secret, I LOVED Breaking Bad! It was hands down the very best TV series ever, completely brilliant writing and acting. Once I found out that the series had […]

Pike National Forest Campground

While we were in Colorado we attempted to climb a mountain by taking Tanglewood Trail towards Rosalie Peak. We lost the trail about 2.5 miles up and while we had many GPS gadgets, we didn’t have a map. So we turned around at 10,841′ because I was not about to have a Blair Witch Project […]


Race day for the Lake Michigan Trail Half Marathon was pretty low key. According to my Garmin, temps were at 66 degrees and humidity was at 100%. There was SO MUCH FOG! It was two weeks since the car crash so I knew race day was going to be interesting. My biggest issue has been […]
