Taking a break

Instead of leaving this space silent, I thought I’d write a little post to say I’m taking a blogging break.

I’m not sure for how long, but I know I’m not making the time for it right now. I want to enjoy summer, weekend getaways, and warm evenings instead of worrying about blogging.


Plus, my favourite things to write about are running and racing, and I’m not doing either of those. (Fingers crossed I’ll be running soon!)

I’ll still be reading blogs but probably not leaving many comments. Hope you’ll stick around for when I’m back!

In the meantime, have a fantastic start to summer and good luck to those who are racing- I’ll be virtually cheering for you!

When’s your next big race?

  1. I’ve been thinking about this a lot. Good for you for actually doing it! And when you do come back, I’d love to see pictures of all your fun summer adventures! Enjoy!

  2. It seems like a lot of us are either posting a lot less frequently or taking a break. I’ve been suffering a little bit of a burnout myself, but this weekend got a little excited about my blog again. We’ll see how frequently I continue to post…

    Hope you have a wonderful summer, and hope you’ll write occasionally about some of your cool outdoor activities (like SUP and hiking). Also, I’d love a Harold fix every once in a while! 🙂

  3. You will be missed, but thankfully I’ll still have you on IG!! Enjoy your summer and enjoy your time away! ❤

  4. Good for you! I dont think I will be blogging as much either- all I want to do is be outside! Have a fabulous summer! 🙂

  5. i’ll miss you here too abby but yahoo maybe now you will have time to honour your gcs for past mother’s day golfing outings! haha just kidding, I know how busy you guys are! love mom xoxo

  6. I will miss you! But totally understand!

    My next race is an international triathlon in 2 weeks!

  7. Enjoy your summer – I’m scaling back some this summer, too!!!
    Of course we will still be around when you get back. I hope that your leg is healing and that you are able to run before too much longer!

  8. Have a nice summer. Enjoy this special time of the year 🙂
    Anyways, I hope you’ll come back. It’s a pleasure to read you.

  9. Thanks for the update! Of cours we’ll be here when you come back! I’ve stepped back from blogging recently, not because I don’t want to be here but because I’m having a hard time balancing with my ‘real’ job and family life. So, I totally get it! Enjoy the summer and can’t wait to read/see all about it when you come back.

  10. Ahhhh! My next race is a 10 miler in July, and then I’ve got my first triathlon in September!!!!! Hopefully you’ll be back then because I may need your help.

    I hear what you say about basically living life rather than writing about it. Enjoy your break 🙂

  11. We all need recovery time both in training, our personal lives and with social media. Enjoy your break, find yourself, heal up and come back stronger than ever!! My next big race is IMWI in September 😉

  12. It’s understandable! I look forward for you to come back though 🙂 My next big race is in 6 weeks: Spartan Beast… I’m kind of scared lol! ❤ xoxo

  13. Have a super awesome summer! Enjoy all of the hiking and camping you will be doing! Will look forward to seeing pictures and hearing stories in the fall!! My next race: Ironman Canada…ahhhhhhhhhh!!

  14. I’ve been debating the same with my blog… just so much I’d rather do than sit behind my computer! I’m definitely cutting back on commenting… I love keeping up with everyone, but it can get stressful.

    Anyway, enjoy disconnecting and nature and heal up! Have a wonderful summer, Abby! xo.

  15. Abby, I completely understand what you mean about needing a little blogging break. Go enjoy your summer, have a wonderful time, I’m sure you have lots of great things planned. Thank you for being such a kind blog friend to me. Your posts and your comments on my blog have always brightened my day. Thank you. Sending you prayers and hugs for a fabulous summer.

  16. Will definitely miss you and your blog, but at least there is still Instagram (which is the other way that I like to stay in touch with people). Have a wonderful summer filled with many adventures. Because I am on break and have a lot of free time, I am “hoping” to do a little more blogging, but we’ll see. There is so much to do around Central Oregon during the summer! Aside from a few smaller races, my next is Lake Stevens in August. 🙂

    Have an amazing break! I’m contemplating doing the same… summer is a great time to take a break!

  18. I’ll definitely miss reading your posts, but you have to do what’s best for you! At least I can follow you on Instagram:) I hope you have a wonderful summer, filled with lots of hikes and time spent outdoors with your hubby and Harold!

  19. Oh I will miss you but I LOVE following your photos on instagram. I’ve been more about living my life than telling everyone about it recently too. I always said I would blog while it was fun an d so good for you for doing what you love!

  20. Enjoy your summer friend!!! Wish I could escape and come play with you. No computers allowed
