runDisney MadTea Virtual 5k :: June 21, 2020

There’s something relatively anti-climatic about a virtual race that really makes me not want to run anymore of them ever again. The virus has pretty much done me in. But we registered for the runDisney virtual summer series months ago, so we might as well run. However, rest assured once these are over, I will…

Yonah Mountain

We’ve been itching to hit bear mountain and there was no better time than the day after Joseph arrived! We warned P that it was a tough one, but she was positive that she could handle the 4.5 mile trail, level: difficult. She’s a bit of a dare devil and not afraid to push herself….

Stay at Home 5k at Panther Creek Falls :: May 23, 2020

The US Forestry Service finally opened all of the trails up which meant we would be hitting one of them this weekend. We also had planned to do our Stay at Home 5k virtual race, so my suggestion was to combine them. Turn this race into our first ever trail run. A crazy but ingenious idea. Accomplish…

Mother’s Day Hike to Amicalola Falls

3 miles out of 1,104 miles The last time I was on this trail, P was just over a year old, situated nicely in her Osprey Poco baby carrier the entire time. She loved it—from what I can remember. But I think she loves it even more now that she can show us how big…

East Palisades Trail

With everything still closed, we were hard pressed to find a trail, but since it was Jake’s weekend off, we wanted to go somewhere. Alltrails was a great resource in trying to determine where we could “legally” go, and with comments wavering between yes and no, we decided on this downtown Atlanta hotspot. We usually opt…

Wonder Woman 5k :: May 2, 2020

This running season has probably been the least fun of any in the past eight years. Because of the Wuhan, everything has become virtual if not cancelled altogether, and while it’s fun to “earn” a medal, I’ve realized races are more about getting up super early, dressing in your cutest outfit, and running with hundreds…

Pinnacle Knob

We are still under “quarantine,” still under a “shelter in place,” and I’m still just as confused as to why every trail isn’t open for our enjoyment. We are outside, alone, and distanced from each other, so it’s baffling that we can’t explore the mountains. In spite of that, we searched hard to find a…

Rocky Mountain via the AT

I’m a control freak and I don’t like change. I really don’t like change when it’s forced upon us because of unnecessary panic. While many would probably disagree, and to each their own, the quarantining and social distancing over this Covid-19 pandemic is crazy, but since I can’t change the current situation, I can only…

Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend :: February 20-23, 2020

No matter the family members that go, the theme of the race, the length of the trip, or even the weather, these weekends cannot be beat. Disney, you can go ahead and just keep taking my money. Family + running + Disney = best vacation ever. So great that we are making it a part…
