I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: it’s all in your head. Last week was max clean and jerk day at the gym. I saw the workout posted online the day before, and I was ecstatic! Cleans, cleans, cleans are my FAVORITE!! So I made up my mind the night before that I … More It’s All In Your Head
There comes a time when enough is enough — when it’s time to let go. It happens throughout our lives, whether we want it to or not. Time to let go of those penguin pajama pants you’ve had since college. Time to let go of someone you love enough to know you don’t love him … More Hanging Up the Jersey
One of my favorite bands during high school was the Christian ska/rock band, The Orange County Supertones. My least favorite song on any of their albums was an instrumental track called “Caught Inside.” I hated it because it had no words, no message, and nothing I could relate to.

It was a whirlwind trip – I drove, shot, missed a bunch of targets, and was back home in less than 48 hours – but I … More Family and Fun at Freedom Munitions Multigun
In the Old Testament, the prophet Elijah performed some of the cooler miracles of his day. One particular miracle, in which he called down fire from heaven to consume a sacrifice in front of the prophets of a false god was particularly flashy. Elijah (and God!) rocked that day on the mountain, but the evil … More 3-Gun University: A Coach’s Eye
I’ve always been a Daddy’s girl; I think I still am. Dad and I share similar intellects, thought processes, and senses of humor. We click. I never had a bad relationship with my mom; I was just always closer to Dad. Then why is it that lately I’ve seen a lot more of Mom showing … More When Did I Become My Mother?
(I’m catching up on a few old posts. This post originally appeared at Tarheel3gun.com in April.) For the fourth year running, what has arguably become the East Coast’s most popular 3-gun match went off without a hitch. The 2015 Bushmaster Tarheel 3-Gun Challenge was held at Woody’s Hunt and Rifle Club in New Hill, NC … More 2015 Bushmaster Tarheel 3-Gun Challenge A Huge Success
