Ragnar 2015 - Great River Adventure!

Image
Wednesday night was going like any other when I got a text from a good friend who I ran with in Mom's On The Run last summer. She asked if I wanted to run Ragnar, as one of the team mates had to drop out last minute.

Okay, what? I asked my husband if it was okay and he said yeah that's fine when is it. So I texted back thinking I had a week or two to at least warm up to the idea of running 200ish miles with two teams of 12. What I did not expect was that it started THAT Friday and I had to leave the next day around 5:30pm!!
Less than 24 hours to prep for Ragnar? Alright let's do it! This post is about my last minute adventure on one of the greatest running feats of my life.

For those of you who don't know what Ragnar is, it is a course mapped out into 36 legs of 200ish miles for teams of 12 to run from point A to point B. Our point A was Winona, MN and point B was downtown Minneapolis, MN. Each team member runs 3 legs, each being a different mileage. We ran the Great …

The Truth About Forgiveness - The Part No One Tells You

Image
People seem to want to believe that forgiveness is an overnight or immediate feeling. Like you decide to forgive and then those bad feelings about the person go away completely. Just like the puzzle pictured above, forgiveness is about putting the pieces back together. It takes time and a lot of effort. It's about re-claiming YOU from the person who tried to take part of you. Forgiveness is a choice one must make to move on with their lives. It is a process one must work through to finally get to the end of that long, dark tunnel.

For everyone who has been hurt, which I am assuming we all have been, the decision to actually forgive is a big one. Holding onto the hurt, anger and possibly even hate seems so much easier than actually letting it go. The thing is, holding onto the resentment and feelings of anger only turn into bitterness which in turn starts seeping into daily life and into our reactions to family members and people in general. The anger, hurt and pain can be seen wi…

Lebanon Hills Regional Park & The Canoe Trip!

Image
We LOVE being outdoors! When it's a free adventure even better. We found a gem of an area to hike, camp and now canoe called Lebanon Hills Regional Park. It is the largest park located in Dakota County, and for us, the most fun!With over 2,000 acres this place is great for swimming, picnicking, mountain biking, geocaching and of course hiking and canoeing among MANY other great activities all year round.
Now if you don't have a canoe, kayak or paddleboard, there is an equipment rental right on site at the visitor center and the rentals are a great price! We happen to have our own blow up canoe thanks to my Dad so were able to go on this beautiful excursion for FREE aside from the gas it took us to get there!

They provide this wonderful Canoe route that takes about 3 hours (so it says) to do the whole thing. We visited Schulze Lake, Portage Lake and O'Brien Lake. With a 4 year old it is quite hard to go a WHOLE day without some sort of complaining so we kept our excursion …
