My Secret Ski Weapon

"Wow, you look better on your skis today than you did all last season," my ever-so-charming husband said to me after our first run one day last month. It was an awkward compliment, but I couldn't argue with him. While I did eventually get to a point where I could make it from the top... Continue Reading →

Rest Month

Whenever I say that I'd like to spend a day on the couch watching Netflix and reading, Tim always tries to tell me that I'm incapable of doing such a thing. That I'd get too antsy. That I'm not actually as lazy as I think I am (actually, his exact words in this regard are... Continue Reading →

A Bike With No Name

In case you didn't know, I was recently in Utah for a week pretending like I knew how to mountain bike. It was amazing and Moab continues to hold strong near the top of my list of favorite places. I could write for days about how much I love it out there, but I took... Continue Reading →

Maybe it seems worse than it really is because I'm comparing it to last year's epically snowy winter instead of a "normal" winter. And maybe... Continue Reading →

I’ll Never Learn

Last month, Tim and I got suckered into  foolishly agreed to  decided to participate in two big bike rides for charity. Normally, doing two events in a one-month period would be NBD...Tim has nothing to worry about, as he regularly rides his bike 30+ miles several times a week before work. And I ride enough (read:...
