Happy Weekend! Links / June 22
It’s finally, officially, summer and I hope you’re all spending a luxuriously relaxing weekend celebrating! I’m going to make this one short and sweet– today is a very special day for me. I am in Des Moines, Iowa, and at approximately 4:20pm CST I’ll be lining up against 13 other talented women and running 7.5 laps around a blue track, hurdling barriers and jumping through water pits, trying with all my heart to finish in the top three, snagging a spot on the 2013 US World Championship team in Russia. Whew! My heart is racing just typing those words.

No matter what happens, I’m a winner– I have the support of an incredible sponsor (New Balance), the love of my darling husband (today’s another anniversary!), and the guidance of the best coach. I have a fun schedule of summer racing lined up (I’ll be heading out to Europe on Monday after a quick New Balance photoshoot), and this year has strengthened my resolve to give this crazy career my all for 2016. It’s scary, it’s grueling, but I love it. And, of course!, I have the best friends and family loving and cheering me on– I’m so grateful for everyone. Here’s hoping we ALL have wonderful weekends and that summer 2013 is good to us!
