Writing Retreat…

I’ve started a new project (and yep, my little friend, Alastair, that you’ve been seeing all over Instagram might make an appearance) so I’ve jetted off to beautiful Sedona AZ for some power writing!! How can I not be inspired by these beautiful sites:   Hope you’re having a great day wherever you may be. 🙂 Sincerely,

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.

And I’m off…

I’m up in beautiful Sedona, AZ today, running  a half marathon. What’s unique about this particular 13.1 miles–HILLS. Yep. Although Sedona has fantastic views, beautiful red rock….it also has massive hills. But that’s the challenge, right? I ran this course last year in just over two hours. I’m hoping for just under two hours this time… I might need a little help from the road runner, huh?  *grin* ~~~~~~ Have  a great weekend, everyone! ~~~~~~

Running the Race

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I showed up in Sedona on Friday night and surprised my dad by announcing I was running the half marathon the next day.

Dad’s been running marathons since the early 80s.  I, as a kid, would color little signs and post them in our car window as we travelled around to his races. No wonder I have the exercise bug, huh? LOL Anyway, I heard this might be his last, or one of his last marathons, so[…]

The Hill

~~~ This past weekend I fell into a mood of contemplation. It doesn’t happen often, but it started with a hill, a song, and this sign. I know, you might be, like, “Jeez, does Lynn ever not relate something to sports?” I’d have to say, “Rarely.” I grew up in an athlete’s home (Dad was a marathon runner/Mom tennis player), sports helped pay for my college, I married a sports nut and athlete . . . So, yeah, pretty much most of my ‘insights’ if you call them that, relate to or are triggered by sports. This past weekend, we[…]
