Sport for Girls at the Collegiate Level #NGWSD

Well this is my second attempt at this blog as I wrote quite an insightful first blog only to have it crash on my iPad before it saved. So I apologize if this isn't as insightful as I had originally done the first time. Sport has had a huge impact on my life as a girl. This is pretty apparent as a cross country and track coach at the University of Louisvil

Life Changes and Moves

This blog has been a long time coming and took me a bit longer to get too than I expected.  But life has been full of unexpected events in the past few months.  As of July 1st I was officially named to the University of Louisville cross country/track & field coaching staff.  While, I am sad to leave an amazing group of women at Western Michigan, I am

“April is the cruelest month”

"APRIL is the cruellest month, breeding Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing Memory and desire, stirring Dull roots with spring rain." -TS Eliot Though I am thankful the snow is officially all melted (for good I hope) I am still longing for spring sunshine.  We've been relatively lucky this spring with weather for our track meets, but getting qu

“If you aren’t in over your head, how do you know how tall you are?”

Trains, planes, and automobiles has been the story of my life the past few weeks.  I had originally started this blog almost two weeks ago, only getting the chance now to actually sit down and write it entirely.  This past weekend I traveled to Mt. Sac Relays with all intentions of running in the 10k in addition to balancing my coaching responsibilities.

Track Season & Product Review

This weekend kicks off the start of the outdoor season.  Currently, I am on the bus on our way to the Alabama Relays with a bus full of athletes.  14 hours on a bus to a track meet may seem a bit excessive but it truly is a great way for our team to bond and come together before the final stretch of the semester.  Plus get out of the cold of Michigan this

An Attitude of Gratitude

This time of year for a college coach is a whirlwind of activity! Between recruiting, workouts, and our upcoming MAC Championships this week it seems I can hardly find a spare moment to breathe.  Thursday night however, we were able to take some time away from our day and go to the Boys & Girls Club of Kalamazoo.  It was a great chance for our team to

Black & Yellow Birthday

Birthdays always bring up many emotions.  For me, my birthday is never particularly a day I’m hugely fond of.  It’s one of those days I think people get really hopped up on expectations, only to be disappointed.  Don’t get me wrong, I love getting presents (who doesn’t really), but I’m still going to work, get my workout in, and life continues a

Dog Days of Winter

On my run last evening one of my favorite songs right now "Dog Days Are Over" by Florence + The Machine popped up on my iPod.  Currently, I feel like I am stuck in the dog days of winter.  When I looked up the term Wikipedia referred to the dog days as “a time period or event that is very hot or stagnant, or marked by dull lack of progress.”  The weat
