Summer Love

Wow it has been a hot minute since I wrote a blog post. Summer has taken me by storm.  I'm not sure if I made it blog official yet...but I am going to be an instructor at the new Gold's Gym coming to town.  While this sounds fun and carefree on the surface, I have been working my butt off behind the scenes. There are days I run, lift and work a twelve hour day. Days I spend hours just listening to music and going over choreography. A treadmill, spin bike, and a barbell have all taken up permanent residence in my home. I love it though. My body is experiencing the kind of changes that I didn't know it could.

What else?
Well it IS summertime.....
Good music
My favorite food of all time...

Loggin miles training for two races this summer...

And finally, spending time with special (dearly beloved) people...

A small bit of sad news, we lost my uncle Tim this week. It has been hard experiencing so much loss in recent months, but we are somehow muddling through it together. As my dad said at another service this year, "sometimes we wonder what is left when someone leaves us. what is left is the memories and the legacy we carry on. what is the love."

I hope you find time to kiss the ones you love. Call the ones you miss, and remember the legacy of those in Heaven.

As for me, I take each day at face value and boldly run the miles my soul so badly craves.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your Uncle Tim. Thoughts and prayers for you and your family.

    It sounds like other than that you've been having a wonderful summer so far.

  2. So sorry to hear you lost your uncle. What a sweet post. I heart fresh peaches good this year!
