Newport, OR Marathon

Before I got married and had a baby I set a goal that I wanted to run a marathon in between having children. So after I had Ella last October I set my sights on running the Newport, OR marathon on June 4th. Brannick was crazy enough to let me talk him into running it too. And even though trainging was much harder than I anticipated after having a baby, I'm proud to say that Brannick and I both finished (my 3rd marathon and Brannick's 1st, and he adds only)! I am also happy to report that I have revised my goal to a more realistic half-marathon in between having children.

Home owners

After we got married I moved into Brannick's two bedroom duplex, which he had rented ever since he moved to Roseburg six years ago. It was a very nice place with great views and wonderful neighbors. But once we bought the dental practice and knew we were going to be in Roseburg for a while, we started looking for a home to buy. Our search intensified once we started accumulating lots of baby stuff and quickly outgrew our rental. And finally, after going through dozens of homes, two real estate agents, and three offers we finally got a wonderful home!
