A Year of Grief

A year ago was the worst day of my life. My dad died. On the one hand, I can’t believe it’s been a year. I can’t believe it’s been that long. On the other hand, so much has happened. I had an entire pregnancy and baby between now and then! I’ve learned a lot about…

Daniel’s Birth Story

In hindsight, it is hilarious how worked up I got about wanting this baby to come. If you search, “second baby comes earlier?” on my phone, all you will see are purple links because I clicked and read them all in the weeks leading up to Daniel’s birth. From early on, I decided he was…

Recap of my Second Pregnancy

In typical second child fashion, this kid gets a blog post 6+ weeks after he’s already born when I blogged weekly during my pregnancy for his brother. Oh well! The biggest difference in the first versus the second pregnancy is that it is impossible to compare your childfree life to your life with a child.…

5 Years at Praxis

A few days ago, I hit my 5-year work anniversary at Praxis, and after taking last year off from my yearly post, it’s time to bring it back. Here are some notable memories from the last 12 months: Team Building With the team being fully remote, I did a few fun Zoom happy hour calls…

Sunday Olympic Trials Predictions

Women’s 400H Sydney McLaughlinDalilah MuhammadShamier Little The US is so strong in all the hurdle events, and the 400H is no exception.

Saturday Olympic Trials Predictions

Women’s 10,000 Sara HallElise CrannyEmily InfeldKarissa SchweizerEmily Sisson Picking predictions for this race is on par with the difficulty of trying to pick the Marathon team back in February 2020 (where I got all 3 wrong) – probably because so many of the women who didn’t make the Marathon team are trying to make the…

Thursday Olympic Trials Predictions

Women’s 3000 Steeple Emma CoburnCourtney FrerichsLeah FallandMel LawrenceGrayson Murphy When Colleen Quigley announced she wasn’t running the Olympic Trials, it became a guarantee that at we would see at least one new Olympian this year. Coburn, Frerichs, and Quigley have dominated the event for so long, that I wasn’t quite sure who to pick for…

Monday Olympic Trials Recap

Holy cow! What a night! I tuned in around the 2nd lap of the 2nd heat of the men’s steeplechase and heard pretty quickly that Sean McGorty (a favorite from heat 1) didn’t get an automatic qualifier and would have to wait to see if he got one of the 4 time qualifiers. This was…

Monday Olympic Trials Predictions

Women’s 1500 Elle Purrier St. PierreJenny SimpsonNikki HiltzCory McGeeShannon Osika I think Elle is the clear winner; Jenny has the experience and isn’t someone to bet against; and after that, this is very difficult. Nikki Hiltz looked like they were practically jogging comfortably with the semi-final heat win, so I’m going with them for the…
