My not-so-distant relative, Arctic explorer Roald Amundsen said that “adventure is just bad planning.” Unless it’s a high school literature lesson, I’m pretty terrible at planning. Thankfully, I do love a good adventure.

Terrible First Efforts is a place where I get over the fact that I don’t get many things right the first time. I’m a wife, sister, daughter, friend, coach, and teacher. I like to run, read, take pictures, and go on adventures! If you know anything about my family’s history, you know that exploring is in my blood. While I have no (current) plans for new geographic discoveries, I do hope to gain insight by recording my daily adventures here. Maybe you will, too!
