Daunting Challenges

Ashley_blog

I was recently asked a question about overcoming challenges in an interview and thought I’d share my answer here in the blog. : ) Enjoy!   What do you do to prepare for a challenge so daunting, like MS Run the US? I focus on three tasks at a time.  I think life in general can be daunting if you…

Just. Love.

Ashley_blog

Who are you to judge? Just love. You run. You run because… You run to be connected, so you share. Just love. You run to be in solitude, so silence is your shadow. Just love. You run with music to lift you up. Just love. You run without music to be organic. Just love. You run to meet your goal.…

Do The Work

Ashley_blog

I hadn’t felt like writing lately and I’m not one to force my posts, so sorry for the gap in updates! Truly the last two runners, Clark and Bill, literally covered their miles in what seemed like a cake-walk. Throughout Clark’s 180-miles in 7-days and Bill’s 200-miles in 9-days they each individually had about 4-miles of their whole segment that…

Loving Support

Ashley_blog

One of the most important lessons I feel God is teaching me this year is to meet people where they are and to love them where they are at. For myself, I know that I am strong-willed and focused. I love self-development and growth, and I understand that both are never-ending processes of change. But change isn’t easy…at first. Once…

Bring On The Mojo

Ashley_blog

My car wouldn’t start, but it just didn’t bother me.  I had just got done aiding Adam with a Snickers bar & Coca-cola at his 12-mile stop when I went to start the car and all I got was the familiar click-click-click of a dead battery.  I left the lights on.  I got out and screamed to Adam a half…

Wavering Believer

Ashley_blog

Lean not on your own understanding… I have that reminder on a travel mug I bought a few months back.  I have a strong and growing relationship with God, so yes I believe He has my best interest in mind.  Things have always worked out better in the past, so yes, I believe that the paths I’m on lead to…

Break the Body. Heal the Soul.

Just like that, Chellie’s segment of the Relay is over. It’s hard to believe that 6-days of her running back to back to back marathons has gone by so quickly, but it’s done and past. Segment two runner, Jay Rawlings, and his family have already arrived with the game plan set for some early, cool miles tomorrow morning. Though I…

Endless Endurance

Ashley_blog

Well I’m officially on the road again! Wow. Really, what a whirlwind these past four weeks have been! To summarize (ha!), I’ve spent a good amount of my time getting the RV travel-ready, found instructors of my fitness clients, learned (in very general terms) how to film an interview, work my SLR Canon camera, how to save, upload, and edit…

Stay Awake Treadmill Challenge

Do you want to be inspired by someone defying their physical limitations? It’s likely the furthest place you have to go is your mirror.  Despite your best excuses, you can defy the limitations you impose on yourself. But you don’t understand, Ashley! You don’t have knee problems/children/back pain/an over-demanding boss… I couldn’t agree more that life can be demanding at…

S is for…

  “That’s mine!” I thought to myself as I spotted my pen from church on a co-worker’s desk.  I didn’t want to sound petty so I left the pen there as I continued my conversation with said co-worker, all while plotting in my head just how to retrieve my pen. The pen isn’t special in the way that it writes,…
