Why tea really is the golden elixir

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a coffee and tea junkie. I have a problem. I can’t go into a specialty story without coming home with several new varieties to try. But here’s the thing. It’s because we deserve nice things. And few things are as comforting as a nice warm cuppa. Isn’t cuppa …

Hitting pause and making time for me time

How many of you struggle with finding time for yourself? It’s so easy to get caught up in the endless to-dos, to get caught up in the stress of it all. There’s always bills to pay, always laundry. And never enough time for me. But we all must start hitting pause. But I find that …

How to mom well at 40 below #momlife

I did a thing today. I built a fire. That may not sound like a big deal to you. But it’s huge for me. I haven’t had a house where we could have fires since I was about 8 or so. So I never learned how to start a fire. But with subzero temps and …

Why 2019 is the Year of New Shoes | SalmonAtSeven.com

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

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 …
