Bake Something…

Being Alive is clearly so very many things. So many, many, many things. These days it feels like the list is so epically long that it’s too hard to handle or keep track of it. And part of the reason for that is that we are so invested in “keeping on, keeping on.” I heard…

Being Alive and Living It

Oh my gosh, being a human is a full contact experience. And we are mostly ill-equipped. Each day, lately, I wake up and feel the weight of just how ill-equipped I am. I got out on the trail yesterday, listened to some thoughtful souls speak from the heart (on podcasts and audiobooks) and I realized…

Who Wants Normal Anyway?

As we have resurrected the torture report, it has me thinking about why we started it in the first place. Yes, it was for accountability for training but I have been realizing it was actually so much more. We were training for a big, epic goal and we wanted to believe it was possible. I…

Keeping Your Heart Open

Life feels heavy these days and so does my heart. When I go through tougher times I tend to close off, to contract. It’s our natural reaction to pull away from what pains us; to retreat from what we imagine creates the heaviness in our lives and in our hearts. But what if we didn’t?…

We Are Back

Here we are. We are back. We are still Lowi & G but to be honest we are not the same. Yes, we are still full of sunshine and just the right amount of sarcasm. Yes, we are still sisters. And yes, we are still trying to figure out the absurdities of life. But we…

Time to Listen

We are not sharing any other blogs this week (or may be longer) as our voices are not the ones that need to be heard. Our white, female perspectives are not the ones that need representation. We strongly encourage you to begin to educate yourself (if you haven’t already), as we educate ourselves. Be respectful…

Torture Report: Training in the Q

Oh the good old Torture Report. You know the situation is dire when we are in need of this level of public accountability. This formerly weekly check- in was created to keep Lowi and I (and a couple others) on task for my 40th birthday 50-miler in 2014. And then you all seemed to like…

Memorial Day

Today, we mark Memorial Day, maybe not in our usual way, but still holding space to remember those we’ve lost. We give thanks for their service and sacrifice. Sunshine & Sarcasm, Lowi & G

Acceptance

As is always the case, we talk about the things we ourselves are working through.  In fact, I heard Kyle Cease once say that we should pay attention to the advice we give others, it’s usually for ourselves. So with that all being said, this may just end up being for myself solely. This concept…

Lean In and Listen

We came rolling into May and I imagine when you read our first blog of the month and discovered we were delving into Being Uncomfortable, your first instinct was to run and hide. Your first instinct was to find something else, anything else, to read. Your desire was to feel anything but discomfort because hasn’t…
