2017 New Years Resolutions

So here goes nothing…. drumroll please… here are my 2017 New Years Resolutions:

  1. Run the Naked Bavarian 40 mile race on March 4, 2017  – the day before my 36th birthday!
  2. Raise $5,000 for Covenant House Pennsylvania – Already 27% there but I only have 2 months left to raise the funds.
  3. Run the Dirty German 50 mile race on May 13, 2017 – Almost 1 year to the date of giving birth to Bowen.
  4. Lose the baby weight – I am over it.  I want to feel and look like myself again.  Current Weight – 140 lbs/Goal weight – 120 lbs. 20 lbs to go!
  5. Rock climb More – No set amount just get on the wall/outside more.
  6. Travel More – France and Niagara Falls are already on the list.
  7. Blog More – No set rules just simply more
  8. One small house project a month – complete with a blog post about it.
  9. Declutter – more donations and selling.
  10. Spend less – what’s the point of decluttering if I am just going to fill the house back up with more stuff?

Wish me luck!!


It’s Official

I have signed on to raise $5,000 for Covenant House while using my 40 mile race as a catalyst to do so.  I have wanted to do something like this for a very long time and I think fear of failure stopped me but no more.  I usually do not announce my longer races in fear of failure.  It’s bad enough to not finish a race but to have an audience makes it that much worse.  But I am putting it out there this time.  Failure is an option and it could happen, I could fail to run 40 miles on March 4 or reach my $5,000 goal for Covenant House but not trying would be so much worse.  So if you could help a sister out to not fail, click on the picture below for my fundraising website and I am excited to say I am already 14% there!  Any amount will be greatly appreciated!!


I am so excited for these bigger 2017 goals.  It feels good in my soul.
