Taking the Long Road
One women's tale of how training to walk 60 miles for Breast Cancer research changed her.

John Wayne said, “Courage is being scared to death but showing up anyway.” Well, I’m showing up and putting on my walking shoes. I’m going to walk the treads off of those shoes if I have to. I will not stop.


Stay tuned for my entry AFTER the walk... I may need a nap first though.

I only bought the book b/c the lady next to me wouldn’t shut up about it and well, she just wouldn’t shut up at all. It was my first plane ride but I almost hoped the oxygen masks would drop from the ... Read more

Marking your journey, your way


To ink or not to ink? The answer to that question will get you many answers! No two are the same, and many will completely contradict the others. If you're looking outside for the answer to whether or not you should mark your body, you will be left with a Vertigo like feeling. I sure was, but that was years ago. I love my ink and each of their ... Read more
