Weekend Reading. . .

A couple weeks ago, I entered a contest offered by @MeganRecords, editor at Kensington Publishing. The prize…a copy of the books she’s edited over the previous four years! I got my prize this week. Check it out: HOLY COW! Look at all that reading I get to do! And my To Be Read list is already a mile long. I must resist diving right in, though, until I finish editing Portal to Aeon. Once that’s done, I can get lost in a few books. Thanks, Megan. This is a great prize! Happy Weekending, everyone!

Comfort . . .

My BFF sent this email to me the other day, and in light of the recent cancer diagnosis my mother in law received, it really fits where I’m at these days…. ~~~ A Nativity Scene was erected in a church yard. During the night the folks came across this scene. An abandoned dog was looking for a comfortable, protected place to sleep. He chose baby Jesus as his comfort. No one had the heart to send him away so he was there all night. We should all have the good sense of this dog and curl up in Jesus’ lap[…]

Run, Lynn, run. . .

I love Facebook and Twitter. You guys are all so encouraging. I set a goal of running a 10-mile race (Aflac Iron Girl) a while back and slowly worked my way up to running 10 miles. The race was this past weekend, and it was awesome. Even more awesome was the support and encouragement my fellow Facebook, Twitter, and blogging friends offered. One of my friends posted, Run, Lynn, run!!!  Forrest Gump immediately came to mind. LOL. No way could I run across the country, though. Anyway. . . I thought I’d share a little bit about the day with you[…]

Catch the Rush in Tempe, AZ

This weekend is THE weekend!! Months of running and training…and I still don’t look like this: As a matter of fact. I look more like this: But that’s okay, because I’m gonna have a BLAST at the Aflac Iron Girl 10-mile run Sunday. My BFF, Michele, is running the 5k race and gonna cheer me on as I attempt to finish–hopefully not last–the 10 mile run. Nothing like 2,000 chicks getting together and doing a little exercise. This’ll be the third year I do this run–it’s just so fun. So, if you’re in the Tempe, AZ area Sunday, stop on by.

The Men in My Life. . .

There are two very important men in my life. First, my hubby, Charlie. The second, my dad, Don. This past week I got to spend some AWESOME time with both of them. It started with an impromptu visit to Sedona to hang out with my dad. We went running through the red rocks of Sedona. I’m so blessed to be able to run shoulder-to-shoulder with my dad. If you don’t remember, he’s the one who did the 3,100 mile bike ride across the country , so you can guess where I inherited the genes for extreme/endurance sports. But hey, I’m[…]
