Running, eating, sleeping, running, eating, sleeping.

Above is what my life is now. Rinse and repeat!

We made it! We are in Rochester Hills and I love it. I love my teamies, I love our running routes, I love being part of Hansons-Brooks, I love the weather, I LOVE MICHIGAN! Now, I know that the last 2 weeks have been just mileage and that once workouts begin things will get tough. I know this will not be an easy road and that I will be working my buns off, but I could not be more excited. I promise to update weekly, but for now, there is too much I don’t know where to begin, so here are some pics.

With my BFF, out for pizza after loading the truck in AZ.


A fun night out with Matt's parents before we headed out. Postino and Havana Cafe, yum!

All ready for our first long day, heading out from the Hilborn Heber cabin. Tank looks excited.

Poor fella could not get comfortable.

Made it to Milwaukee! Mom and Matt

My high school bestie had a baby!!! So sweet!

Tank is finally comfortable. Spoiled rotten.

On the road to MI from Milwaukee.

Our new bedroom in the Tienken house. I feel like I am in college again! :)

The Whole Foods here is huge! *love*

Treats! Coffee from Christina- (+ a KEURIG!! I have always wanted one) and PB2- google it, try it.

More to come! Tomorrow I should know a bit more about my upcoming training/racing. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be here. Dream come true.




  1. Looks like Michigan is agreeing with you already! 🙂 Can’t wait to hear about your future training/racing plans!

  2. Yay for an update! As a wannabe Olympic Trials qualifier (I have quite a looonnnggg way to go – maybe someday!), I find your blog so motivating! Love reading how you were really just getting going two years ago and now you’re with Hansons-Brooks, amazing! Such an inspiration. Can’t wait to hear more…when you’re not busy running, eating and sleeping, of course. 🙂

  3. Thanks for reading! Sarah, I would love to hear about your progress too! Jill, we love him too! He is an old naughty boy! 😉

  4. I have the same Coconut Mocha cups!! The Hazelnut by Wolfgang Puck is super yummy, too : ) So happy to see your photos!
