Antelope Canyon 55k Race Report #TheRunningWriter

ANTELOPE CANYON 55K Antelope Canyon was put on by Vacation Races, and the race sells out fairly quickly, so I signed up what felt like ages ago. So, when race day came, I was extra excited. Seems like the longer I train / wait for a race start, the more hyped up I am. The race was Saturday March 9th, but we chose to leave on Thursday the 7th to avoid any rushing/issues that might pop up. We wanted to get settled in and then have Friday for a relaxed prep-time for the race! Page, AZ is a pretty town.[…]

Volunteers and Mountains

For those of you who don’t know, I work full time in a bookstore at my church. Yep. Our church has about 19,000 members, so, the bookstore is very busy. I love it. It’s just the perfect place for me to work even though I don’t write Christian Fiction. This past weekend, we had a HUGE book sale going on for THE STORY. It’s a version of the Bible we’re going to go through as a church. So, that meant over 100 volunteers to help out at the sale locations. It was quite an endeavor that had many hands involved[…]

A Storm’s Coming…

I got these pictures from a friend of mine at work. It’s of an oncoming Haboob. I guess that’s what they call Dust Storms here in Arizona—I know, it’s a funny name, but WOW!!!!! Check these out. This first one is from the top of the hill at our church (where I work). WOW!  That is just ominous looking, isn’t it?   ~~~~ The storm came and went, nothing too major as far as damage around our neck of the woods…thankfully! Have a super DAY, my friends!

Happy Weekending

I have a good friend who always says Happy Weekending. I just love the phrase. It’s a time to rejuvenate after a long week of work. So, I hope you rest and relax a little…and maybe take in a stunning sunset…. This picture was taken near my house one evening. Not sure the picture can do it justice, though. It was just amazing! If you have any pictures of sunsets or sunrises, send them my way. I’ll post them! Have a SUPER DAY!   PS: And don’t forget, if you’re interested in reviewing an ARC of Awaited, CLICK HERE to[…]

Sedona Sunset

You know I love sunrises — I post pictures of them enough between here and Facebook. But I love sunsets, too. So, I have one for ya here. I took this one from my dad’s backyard in Sedona, AZ. Sedona is one of my favorite places to visit. Not just because it’s where my dad lives, but also for its inspiring beauty. I’ve written many thousands of words up there while looking upon this beauty. I hope you all have a great weekend and get to take some time to enjoy a nice sunrise or sunset! See you Monday.
