Hiatus Explained

It has been hard to come back to you, my blog followers. Not because I have run out of things to say, and not that I have been too busy to keep up with Pumps to Pumas. But I have been struggling with the words to say to explain where I currently am in my life right now.

Without getting into too much detail, I have made the decision to move into a new place. I will remain in St. Petersburg as I feel that I have built a very good life there. But everything else is up in the air.

I know I have already said it many times, but I want to thank my friends and family who have been my biggest fans and supporters. Although I have never felt more "alone" emotionally, there has never been a moment where I have been physically alone.  You have helped me laugh, consider things I never considered, and helped me get through some very dark days.

That being said, I plan to begin contributing to this forum again. I am sure I will have a lot to post about my new digs and new life. Plus there are some amazing races coming up! Thank you all for being patient with me!

As part of my new home, I am hoping to buy some inspirational typographical prints to remind me that this time will pass and things will get better. Here as some of my top choices:







  1. You are such an awesome person ... I am sorry you are going through a tough time, and I have been "there" in one way or another, so I feel your pain. Let me know if you want to get together for dinner, or drinks, or if you would like to come to our place to swing a sledgehammer. xox

  2. Caitlin, just catching up on your blog when I came across this one. I hope you are doing well & are in a better place - you do have so many supporters! Your new apartment looks amazing & I love the updated look of the blog! <3
