Sand vs. Snow

Sand vs snow

Over Thanksgiving weekend while in Cannon Beach, I had the opportunity to run in the sand for the first time. I have been to the beach several times, but it was before I started running. I was disappointed that I wouldn’t be running in this year’s Huffing for Stuffing in Bozeman. I figured that running […]


Running Injuries

Posted on August 5th, 2013 by Jess Run/Hike/Bike

Well, it is probably about time with running in for 4 years that I get some type of an injury. It finally hit me this weekend. I went on a run Friday night and by the time I finished my right foot was stiff and sore. I wasn’t able to walk on it very well […]


Jim Bridger Trail Run

Posted on July 2nd, 2013 by Jess Run/Hike/Bike

A few weeks ago, my running friend approached me and asked if I would be interested in running the Jim Bridger Trail Run. I was unsure as I had not been running much with just getting back from Nepal and having been sick for the week after getting back. I kicked my running back up […]

Idaho 2

As most of you know, I have been running around like a chicken lately. I hardly have the time for, well almost anything! Ha. This past weekend, my parents really wanted to see us before we headed off to Nepal. Even though it was a really short weekend getaway in Kellogg, Idaho, it was a […]


Running-What are you?

Posted on April 19th, 2013 by Jess Life Run/Hike/Bike

I have got my self so booked solid every week, that I have meetings or some event in the morning and night most days of the week. I even throw in a lunch even now and then. I do not know how I got to this point, but there is something that I seem to […]


Ultra Training

Posted on January 23rd, 2013 by Jess Life Run/Hike/Bike

My training for my ultra began at the beginning of the month and boy has it been a trip so far. The weather has been blizzard like, freezing cold (temperatures below zero!!) and not to mention mostly extremely icy. This is much different from the warm winter we had last year. I am loving all […]


Winter Running

Since Brent and I got back from Oregon our Internet has been down. We will post about that trip when we get it working. We got back into town late on Sunday night due to bad roads. Brent left early Monday morning for a work trip. He got back into town tonight in time for […]


An Oregon Run

Brent and I were able to go on a chilly yet beautiful run the other morning in The Dalles. I ran up a hill to gain about 1000 feet. It felt great and the view was beautiful. It is a great way to start my training as it is a fresh start. Running in a […]


Running – What to do in 2013?

The she is!

As I have been thinking over and over again what I would like to do for running next year, I was torn. I would really like to run another marathon next year, but I have told myself that I am not training for one over the summer again. Next summer is going to be reserved […]

Greetings friends and family! Boy has it been a year for us. We hope that this note finds you well and encouraged for the new year ahead of us. I don’t have a lot of space on this years mailing, so I’ll keep it brief. We started off our year in search of two things, […]
