“The most important thing in the Olympics is not to win, but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.”
~The Olympic Creed
A little-known fact: the Olympic Creed was inspired by a bishop’s sermon at St. Paul’s Cathedral during the 1908 Games in London. More here, including the uncropped version of the photo with the back story to the origins of this creed.

I haven’t often reblogged, but this hit home.

About Us

For eight months in 2012, my husband Clark and I, known in some savory circles as Vicegrip and Sap, hiked on the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. Marriage boot camp, the trip of a lifetime, financial suicide, spiritual rebirth. Whatever you want to call it, we survived it, all 2,184.2 miles. On November 1, we summited Mount Katahdin, and left our long home in the woods with an eternal souvenir: a tiny life, an original person, who would be in our arms exactly nine months later. On August 1, 2013, Aven Marie Lovelady was born, and so was a family. Now the new adventure begins.

We loved sharing our AT experience through blogging, and appreciate the chance to stay in touch in the same unobtrusive way during our new–dare I say, even more challenging!—adventure.
