Why 2019 is the “Year of New Shoes”

One word: races. Lots and lots and lots of races, with lots and lots of miles. Where 2018 saw me beginning to make pushing myself a goal, 2019 takes that to a new level. A new shoes level. Because not only am I already signed up for 7 races (with a few more planned). Erin’s …

2018 in review, my Fitspiration recap

2018 fitspiration recap

My 2018 probably looked quite different from most athletes. In fact, when it started, I was just getting back on the horse a few months post partum. I was riding my Peloton daily. I was eating well. And then I got strep. My kids got sick. Again. We spent most of last winter inside trying …

#Momreal Life Isn't Pinterest Perfect

#MomReal – Life isn’t Pinterest-perfect.

Let’s get momreal for a bit here. I’m sitting here in my activewear yet not working out yet another day. It’s for reasons, of course. All the reasons. But regardless of what they are (and I’ll share some of them later), working out just isn’t happening today. Neither is cleaning, although I did sweep the …

What’s the big deal about a half marathon anyway?

If you know me at all, you know that statement is meant tongue in cheek. Although I ran a lot as a kid and in college, to me “a lot” means frequently. My longest distance ever is somewhere in the neighborhood of 8 miles. My longest hike, 10 miles. So a half marathon, a “measly” …

Imposter syndrome and why it really, really sucks

Isn’t it funny how you don’t notice something until you notice it once, and then you see it everywhere? Especially when it all of a sudden really relates to you? That sounds weird, but it’s a thing, I swear. I’m talking about anything from cars to people running with strollers. I had never noticed GMC …

Saying Goodbye Hurts Because it Matters | SalmonAtSeven.com

Saying goodbye hurts because it matters

Lucy the Wonderdog crossed the rainbow bridge this week. And letting her go was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do.  I don’t say that lightly, either. Lucy gave me the most amazing 10 years and she leaves huge paw prints in my life, and a big hole in my heart. She …

I'll Do It Tomorrow & Other Lies I Tell Myself | SalmonAtSeven.com

I’ll do it tomorrow…and other lies I tell myself

I am really good at thinking big and figuring out what has to happen to accomplish my goals. Sometimes I’m even good at starting down that path. My follow through is not always as strong. But I’ve learned that how you perform isn’t nearly as important as digging in and giving it a go. I …

Dairy Free Creamy Bacon Kale Salad Recipe | SalmonAtSeven.com

Creamy Bacon Kale Salad (dairy-free)

Ever since I had to go dairy free by virtue of my new daughter’s dairy allergies, I’ve looked at creamy foods suspiciously. Macaroni salad, potato salad, and most certainly creamy salad dressings. A lot of the time, it’s mayo-based, like this creamy bacon kale salad recipe, but there’s a lot of dairy out there too. …

Book Review: Hike it Baby

Review: Hike It Baby — 100 Awesome Outdoor Adventures with Babies and Toddlers

I’ve been involved with Hike it Baby in various capacities for over 3 years now. As a Branch Ambassador, as a hiker, and also as a writer. And I credit Hike it Baby with saving my sanity after I lost my father in 2014. It got me outside, got me social, and gave me some …
