“It’s gonna be great!” Those words have become my catchphrase over the couple of years.

Yes! My words for life. When I created this blog 4 years ago, my life was in transition. Writing has been a part of my life since I was a little freckled face girl with pigtails. So naturally, when the tough times surfaced, this blog became my outlet. My heart story.

The words run, dance, and climb equate to the inner workings that delivered me back to me. A former dancer, a runner and a hiker. I am also a mom of three amazing humans. They are the reason. Period. It is so freeing, when you finally return to yourself. Who you always were before the pressures of life tried to change you. Now, years later, I continue to face my true north day to day and more importantly, not take life so seriously. Oh and maybe have a little fun along the way 😉

This blog, rundanceclimb, is the heart story about trusting oneself, breaking personal barriers, and embracing the joy of life’s journey. I hope you come along for the ride, and share your heart stories as well.

It’s gonna be great!


Places You’ll Find Me


My stories and thoughts about life, hiking, running, motherhood and sometimes, poetry.


Diagnosed with bilateral hip dysplasia 3 years ago, running has changed a bit for me. I have to take care of my body in a whole different way now. But that didn’t stop me from running my 1st marathon!


Still twirling around ideas to spin dance back into my life again.


THIS is my sanity. Hiking has provided so many opportunities, friendships, lessons…and it keeps my mind, body and soul in balance.

Podcast (more to come!)

I’m super excited about this next step! Hoping to lend a voice to your stories this spring.
