The Women's Larges are sold out, but please see size chart, as they run very small and I still have many XLs.

UPDATE 10/2:  There are only 2 Women's Larges left.  Please see the size charts below as these run very small.  I have a bunch of women's XLs, so please consider ordering an XL if you typically wear a size M or a L.  Thanks!!

It is that time again!!  You know, I honestly had no intentions of doing this run this year.  Our adoption process has coincided perfectly, imperfectly with the time I normally have the run.  And the run is time consuming and lots of work, right about the time that we will be preparing to travel to China to snatch Felicity Grace into our arms forever.  But, as I prayed about it more and more, I knew I cou…

Harpers Ferry

This Sunday, we decided to take a trip to Harpers Ferry; the town known for the failed John Brown uprising and the scene of lots of civil war history, is now a National Park.  Many of the buildings are still preserved and if you are a Civil War lover like I am, you will know that Harpers Ferry was used in the movie Gods and Generals for the battle of Fredricksburg.









Unbeknownst to us, this weekend just happened to be the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Harpers Ferry.  So, there were lots of fun activities that are not normally there. And, thankfully, it was not too crowded either.







The town also happens to be on the Appalachian Trail and while walking through town, we met some hikers who had been hiking the trail for the last two months. They had were half way through their 2,197 mile journey which began in Georgia and will end in Maine!  Joshua was ready to start his trek on the trail, until he realized he had no hiking gear, camping equipment or food (silly boy).

Forty, Fit and Fabulous! (Operation: Fit for Felicity)

This is a big year for us.  In a few short months we will be in China to bring home our little girl, big changes are coming in the way we homeschool (a post is coming) and in December, I turn 40.  The age 40 does not really bother me at all.  Turning 30 didn’t either.  To me it is just another year.  I have grown wiser, I hope.  But, even though the actual age does not bother me, its effects do bother me somewhat.  Truthfully, I am starting to feel old.  I cannot get 5 hours of sleep and expect to be able to function normally the next day with an extra cup of coffee.  Workouts and miles logged that did not bother me years ago, suddenly cause aches and pains never felt before.  At first, I thought that there must be something wrong with me . . . after all, I used to be able to do all these things and bounce back easily.  But, after talking to some 40-something friends, they reassured me that the aches and pains I was feeling we not a sign that I was horribly out of shape o…
