Stuff & Things: A Life Update, Vol. 2

As usual, I've let things go far too long without writing about them. And, as usual, I've made an unofficial "resolution" to revive this site and write more regularly. We'll see how long that actually lasts. (As usual.) Much like the last time I did a life update post, I'll do my best to not... Continue Reading →

Acadia Weekend

When the idea of a Peck family weekend getaway was first proposed, it was back in August as a way to celebrate Tim's dad's 70th birthday. Life had other plans for that time though, so it was postponed for a few months. This past weekend was our make-up weekend, and boy, did it turn out... Continue Reading →

Oh, The Places You(r socks)’ll Go

You're off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So…get on your way! –Dr. Seuss It's been quite some time now since I worked in the outdoor industry (just over four years!), and while the thing I miss most about it changes often, the one thing that's always near the top...

Not a Training Recap

"No recap this week," Doug half-asked, half-tsked at me as I sat and pouted about falling off the boulder for what seemed like the 43,874,295th time Saturday morning. "I know…" I started to sigh say before Tim chimed in with, "no time!" and changed the subject. While I appreciated Tim's recognition of how busy I've... Continue Reading →

NEHM Training: Week 7

I still don't know where all that motivation came from during Week 6, but it certainly didn't stick around very long. Week 7, while not totally terrible, saw me slip back into my standard half-hearted way of training and was my lowest mileage week yet (at least as far as running is concerned). Oops. Part...

NEHM Training: Week 3

Another successful week of training is in the books. In fact, Week 3 was arguably my most successful week so far! I didn't do every workout (no surprise there), but I only skipped one and, most importantly, I finally hit double-digit running mileage for the week, which hasn't happened in a VERY long time. So...

Year in Review / Looking Ahead

And just like that, it's New Year's Eve. (How did that happen so fast?!) Another year has come and gone, so now I'm supposed to take some time to look back at everything that's happened over the past 365 days and start making plans for my next year of life, right?Well, fuck that. Pretty much... Continue Reading →

84 Days

I've never liked training plans. Partly because I have a really hard time following them and I typically hate doing things I'm not good at. And partly because I don't like being told what to do—especially when an inanimate object is doing the telling. But mostly it's that first thing. Despite my general distaste for...

A Lesson in Preparedness

The fact that I was never a Girl Scout routinely becomes overwhelmingly apparent whenever I leave my apartment for anything even remotely adventurous (assuming, of course, that the Boy Scout  motto, "Always be prepared" also applies to Girl Scouts...I suppose the fact that I don't even know is also a pretty good indicator that I...
