My Roller Coaster I Call Life

4th November 2017 | 0 Comments

I have been missing in action for a couple months now.  Life has a funny way of throwing curve balls at you and saying not so fast now.  After heart surgery, it was quite the roller coaster ride to get to a normal health routine.   Your body adjusting to a pacemaker is a whole new […]

I haven’t written in some time.   I had heart surgery, got a pacemaker at 32.   Went back to the dark place I was in when my lupus was bad, because I couldn’t do anything for the longest time.   I had to “take it easy”.   Yes the pacemaker saved my life and […]

2016 started out as an awesome journey with some great accomplishments, like my first 50 miler.   Towards the end of the year I started having dizzy spells and passing out.   I tried not to think anything of it until I passed out in front of Paul and hit my head.  He had to […]

Social media is always a great source for reminding you of what was happening in your life in the past.  Ironically 6 years ago today, my gall bladder basically exploded and I ended up in an ambulance and having surgery.   I lived in the hospital six years ago basically.   I was always there. […]

The best part about Ragnars is that I can join a random team, and have a lot of laughs as we run 200 miles from Wickenburg, AZ to Mesa, AZ.   Some people find it odd that I would join up with people I don’t even know and go run a race, an Ultra Ragnar. […]

Recently some things have come to mind, this is jumble of a blog post but all has meaning, love it, like it, or hate it, but it speaks the truth.  This is very quote driven.  Quotes that I have stumbled across very recently The effect you have on others is the most valuable thing you […]

So 2015 is over, new goals have been made and the new year has begun.  However, I can’t forget all of 2015, as it has helped mold me into the stronger individual I am today. At the beginning of 2015 I had made the decision that I wasn’t going to race much in 2015, and […]
