This is it. Hope Racing.

A new year is underway and my training is in full swing for the season!  My decision to race independently in the upcoming season is exciting and allows me to move forward and gain some fantastic sponsors to represent. Despite the excitement, I was still missing a couple key elements - a name and a... Continue Reading →

Bring it, 2018!

Happy 2018!!! After a long hiatus from my blog, I'm bringing it back! Once in a while, I'll have people ask if I plan on starting it up again and truthfully, I wasn't sure why anyone would WANT me to! While I enjoyed writing in the past, there was a part of me that felt... Continue Reading →

My very first 100 mile, NUE race!!

It's been a long time since I've been here, and I apologize to my readers. How do I summarize the past few months? Well, I won't go into great detail and bore everyone.  After training for the winter, my first race approached at Tuscarora and bam, second place for endurance women.  In April, I decided...

I still worked out, but it certainly wasn’t to my full potential. I spent the week focusing on my core... Continue Reading →

Been One of Those Days

The holidays are over, and now it’s time to get back to the grind. I’ve been very tired this past week and the whole motivation thing was almost nonexistent. All I am seeing in the online world is people training, being coached and gaining miles as well as elevation. I am not. I won’t say... Continue Reading →

Year in Review

Summing up an entire year in a few paragraphs seems impossible, but I’ll do my best. In the past 365 days, there have been many good days, some bad days, but overall, a decent year. It’s very easy for me to focus on the negatives and not the positives from the year, which is not... Continue Reading →
