Good News at CAF

So at 9:30am things seem to be normal for Jenna. Dentist appointment, truck started, money....let's see how long this lasts. I find it interesting that when things are normal for her it spurs me on to create a new post. It happens so infrequently I feel inspired.

  1. It's the calm before the scam storm starts again.

  2. Soooooo....when I saw the blatant beg complete with itemization of dental expenses yesterday I was angry that she was on the hunt for victims yet again. Then I kind of took a step back and figured people know what they're getting into, buyer beware and all that. But now I see this poor Kathleen lady commenting all over her post, clearly very emotionally invested in this drama Jenna has swirling around her. I just feel sick to my stomach that this older woman with money problems is going to give that shiftless lay-about money.

    Jenna has options! So many options. Accepting money from strangers that admit they really can't afford to help you should never be one of them.

    --Get a full or part-time job. She's going to have to sooner or later, she's just stalling now.
    --It's Tuesday, sale day, sell livestock. She'll have a check by Friday or Saturday.
    --Get a loan from her parents. If they were willing to shell out for a farm sitter and travel expenses they have the resources to help her.
    --Sell some belongings. She must have quite the vinyl collection at this point. She certainly knows how eBay works.

    Coercing seniors on limited incomes to foot your dental bills is LOW. The only thing anyone should send her is a pair of vise-grips so she can pull it herself. Welcome to poverty, Jenna, that's how it works for poor people. When your teeth rot they get yanked. When she spent the better part of a month looking for a hawk rather than do any paying work she prioritized her hobbies over her health. No excuse for decent, caring people like Kathleen to get sucked into making up for her recklessness.

    1. And I'm still fuming about the boots. Calling $200 boots 'nothing special', replacing them every year because she dries them out by the fire (a sure way to expedite cracking) - she just throws money away with both hands then cries a river when she has to spend on something as boring as a tooth.

    2. And who knows if there's actually a tooth problem. She could still be trying to fund that telemetry unit.

      Delete
    3. That's my guess 9:44. She's desperate for the hawk telemetry unit that costs $800.
      Jenna: Taking money from seniors who are obviously not in their right minds mentally is a federal crime. If I see that Kathleen has posted that she has given you money (not just considering it), I will call the hotline and report you. I hope others will as well.

      The adult abuse and neglect hotline**1-800-392-0210**

      I have a screen shot of Kathleen saying she has financial problems but will still donate money to Jenna. Taking advantage of the elderly financially does fall under adult abuse. It's easy to Google and read about.

    5. This would make a good sting operation. Someone posing as an elderly retiree with financial trouble offering to finance one of her crises. See if JW will take the money.

  3. Her update:

    Jenna Woginrich: Got xrays this morning. There is a large sinus infection above recent dental work. Double whammy. On Rx for infection. Grateful for the amazing team in Arlington that took such good care of me.

    Jenna Woginrich: Thanks so much everyone. I was relieved so much it wasnt a bad tooth. The xray looked like my teeth were surrounded by black clouds. Still - what a pain in the ass

    1. Jenna was just supposedly on antibiotics for her tooth which she got at the urgent care before the holidays. Yet she has a bad enough sinus infection to make her think it is tooth pain?
      I'm calling bullshit on that one.

  4. Google sinus infection tooth pain X-ray and look at the images.
    Obviously, Jenna knows how to Google. Bunch of b.s. per usual.

  5. Where was this all posted? I don't see anything on the blog or on FB.

    As for the sinus infection, one would think if she was on antibiotics that long those antibiotics would've taken care of the sinus infection. Somethings fishy, yet again

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'm calling bs. If she had a sinus infection that bad, she would have torrents of yellow/green snot pouring from her nose. I just had an infection like that, and it was accompanied by absolutely horrific tooth pain--it hurt to walk, because the light jostling made my teeth feel like they were being pulled from my head.

    Unless jenna also had super nasty respiratory symptoms she failed to mention (and why wouldn't she take the opportunity to make her situation seem even more dire??), I don't buy it!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Me either. I think she heard of the sinus infection causing tooth pain and then googled it to see what the xrays look like.

      She went "hunting" yesterday and then just posted on Twitter about how she went "hunting" today! Once again, like with her made up truck emergencies, she knows very little about the health field and her lies reflect that. Antibiotics don't work that quickly (to go "hunting" today after the supposed dental visit). Also, I'm sure she isn't supposed to be on controlled substances (pain medication in her case) while "hunting" with a captured hawk. Yet another issue to call animal control about. Hopefully, they will pull her falconry license over that. They should.

    2. She's dying of pain and so worried about money that she feels the need to list all her expenses on Facebook, AND she's a hard working, scrappy and fearless farmer keeping the wolves at bay and making pierogis from scratch on her blog, AND she's a fearless hawk huntress and witty culture commentator on Twitter. She's all of this...at the same time! Amazing ;)

  8. Jenna via Facebook 12-27-2016. At about 8:30 pm her time.

    My pain is less. My doctor helped me. I am so grateful to be alive in a time of optional wood stoves and antibiotics, both.
    My home is warm. There is hay stacked in the barn. The animals are all healthy and well. I have food, friends, and live in a safe place.
    My truck runs. My water is hot or cold on command. I have books I love and stories that balm me at grasp. Book lovers are never alone.
    All my problems can be fixed through hard work and self control. I feel so lucky.
    All day you could think about what makes you unhappy, who did you wrong, what the world owes you.... It's easier. We are all tired. I get it.
    I am going to bed happy. Not perfect or even okay, but happy. I made that choice.
    Goodnight. I love you.

      Thanks to the financial support of my fans, my home is warm. There is hay stacked in the barn. My truck runs. My plumbing is fixed.

      All my problems can be fixed by whining on Facebook and Twitter. I feel so lucky.

      All day you could think about what the world owes you - and beg and whine until you get it.

    3. Your interpretation (sadly) is probably close to perfect. As much as I've always enjoyed the internet, for some it is just another place to play, scam and manipulate people for their own pleasure.

  13. She reminds me of a hungry infant. When a baby is hungry, she begins to cry. If her needs are not met immediately, the crying becomes louder until she screams and wails. Once the baby is satiated, she coos and smiles.

    Reminds me so much of Jenna. If a broke truck doesn't bring in enough donations, then she adds on a broke toe. If that doesn't bring in enough, it escalates to broke pipes, broke tooth, etc. And if that isn't enough, then she itemizes her expenses.

    You can tell when she has gotten the amount she wanted. She becomes satiated and writes dreamy posts about a warm home, hot & cold water, healthy animals, books... She's a happy baby now. Until the next crisis.

  14. She is some piece of work. These are things most everyone has books hot and cold water a vehicle that runs animals heat and so on and so on but yet she makes it seem that only special snowflake Jenna has them like she has them. Hers are more special somehow. I guess it follows somehow nobody is special like our little snowflake. I guess I need to start slapping myself more on the back every time I take a hot shower or light a freaking fire.

    2. For someone who supposedly hasn't had her plumbing fixed and can't flush her toilet, Jenna sure sounded happy with herself last night. Of course, the "I love you" was a telling sign that she was drunk. Even drunk, how could anyone be happy with themselves while having to shit in the woods or a bucket?

  15. For someone who is "prepping the farm" for the snow storm and hunting for the third time today, she sure is in front of her computer posting on social media frequently.

    Because, you know, she doesn't have a cell phone **wink**wink** **nudge**nudge**.

    What is she literally running back into the house every 10 minutes? Does she actually think that anyone with a brain would believe she's busy outside?

    Have another pain pill and bourbon, Jenna.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Has she offered any explanation of how the dual miracles of running truck and magical hot/cold running water came to pass?

    Since they were such oft-announced, poor-me fundraising tools (but, of course, not MEANT to look that way to her trusting public) one would think that such heart-tugging details of little J's trying life would merit more than a rapturous expression of the warm glow, her difficult world having just turned up all comfy again.

    We need a little fictional detail, Ms. Homesteader Author. Show, don't tell, right?..even we non-writers know that one. A barely there, throw-away denouement of the tragic (and at holiday time!) dilemmas does not pull the shepherd's un-knittable wool over the eyes of some of your most discerning (and critical) readers.

    You owe us some more made-up shit about how the nice man came over and you gave him a plate of pierogis, an extra bottle of bourbon, and a stack of signed books - and your undying gratitude.

    Or did your many satisfied clients/readers/card-senders all came through in a big pre-holiday lump - right in time to save Yuletide with wheels and plumbing? You even got to the bank before it closed for the long weekend and.....yes?! SO gratifying.

    I am left unable to balm - like at all - as I gasp at her grasping for sufficiently snowlakey way to express how satisfying she finds her books. I get it. I'm just not quite as snowflakey, dramatic, and full of b.s. as Jenna, though. Knowing that does kind of balm me out, however, lol.

  20. Her love affair with the stars and comedians she "adores" via Twitter seems to have abated a bit. She probably figured that her previously unrecognized talent as a pithy, wise-cracking badass homesteader would have fast-tracked her to the Big Time by now. Instead it was a flame-out. I know a single woman who has crafted a funny, well-written, self-deprecating blog about learning to keep her vehicles, heating systems, plumbing etc. working by fixing them herself while earning a living by doing it.The crappy infrastructure at One Woman's Scrappy Farm would provide Jenna with blogger fodder for decades, but she's not funny, not resourceful, and the total opposite of self-deprecating. In other words a smug, self-congratulatory twerp with a superiority complex. You've got to be likeable to pull it off and she isn't.

You can read how she became successful enough to support herself by blogging and she gives you pointers if you want to do it yourself. You will quickly realize, however, that gumption alone is not enough. Personality matters. The Art of Doing Stuff is her blog.

    At least the NE winter has been super gentle thus far, helping her to stumble along and keep her animals alive while she mentally disintegrates. Heaven help them making through another CAF mid-Jan through mid-March, though; there's plenty of suffering yet to be had.

  22. The Case of the Magically Working Plumbing

    Something doesn't add up. She complained repeatedly about plumbing issues. And then:

    1. Someone offers to fix her plumbing for virtually nothing and she does not respond.

    2. She has people over for Christmas and will need running water and flush toilets.

    3. She writes a dreamy post about how her water is hot or cold on command.

    Did she ever have a plumbing problem in the first place? Or was it a ploy for sympathy donations.

    Does. Not. Compute.

    1. Does not compute at all. Someone must have sent her one hell of a donation. Or her embarrassed parents paid for the plumbing repair so Jenna would stop posting about shitting in the woods.

    Jenna via Twitter after being complimented on her lifestyle with the hawk:
    "@JaysonShenk Thanks, fighting to keep it. Mortgage is iffy, bills are behind, it ebs and flows. One book sale could change everything."

    Clearly, Jenna, per usual, has no boundaries or self esteem and went into full on begging-woe-is-me-fest after someone simply gave her a one sentence compliment.

  26. Well, not just Birchthorn, but her writing of all things these days (Merlin book, her blog) is truly craptastic. No editor or publisher in their right mind would want to touch that garbage.

    Here's an excerpt from a Goodreads review about Barnheart. Have we come any farther since 2014 in terms of JFW's life, choices, "farming" ability, or writing ability? NOPE. Time to call it a day, Jenna. You're nothing but a failure.

    "If I ever met this woman I don't know if I would hit her or just walk away. No doubt she would still be talking about her connection to the rustic peoples of rural Vermont. Gah!

    She has no place to live and a butt load of animals. What should you do? Buy another freaking dog. Good idea, lady.

    So irresponsible. All of it. Her whole life is flying by the seat of her pants, adding to the mess by buying more sheep, goats, dogs, and poultry. Admittedly broke but buying more to the point she buys a farm she can barely afford.

    I get the point of the book and what she was trying to get across by writing it but she comes off as a spoiled child who moves from one shiny object to the next."

    So much opportunity lost.
    Getting another book published? Not going to happen. Her writing is crap and her tarnished reputation (Birchthorn) is easily confirmed online. Her last book did not sell well. Publishers don't want that.

    I think it would be so interesting if she got a job, sold her animals and blogged about it. Or not blog about it. That would be AOK with me too.

    1. If she did that and blogged about turning her life around, she could once again have a huge following. A publisher might even give her one more chance if she wrote a book about changing her life.
      As is, Jenna is in denial and comes across as having an untreated, serious mental illness. If she doesn't attempt to change, she will remain an officially washed up thirty something has been.

  28. The problem with jenna is she keeps telling the same story. I am the hero who left corporate america to live her dream. She just keeps telling it over and over the wolves at the door scrappy jenna just holding on how her animals blah blah.

    Replies
    1. Homesteading is a lonely business, apart from also being very hard work. There was a time when Jenna wanted that life and tried to live it, but didn't have the discipline and work ethic to keep going. So, she turned to scams like Birchtorn, pig shares, and fiddling workshops to fund the things she likes doing and the way she wants to live. The way she presents herself on social media makes it clear that very little in the way of work ever gets done on CAF, and driving by her place makes that truth very evident. She's boxed herself into a life she really no longer wants (true farming/taking care of livestock) or can afford. She likes the pretensions of "the scrappy one-woman farm" and that is what she sells as her image in Twitter, etc. It's kinda sad, actually, and must be lonely to live like this. I can't imagine that the folks in her town in upstate New York like her very much, and she's probably outgrown her welcome there as someone who never pays her bills. That hero story is old now - and even a retell of her failures is not going to be something anyone would want to read about. I find it amazing that no one is asking her about her tooth, given all the recent drama, or the plumbing situation. I'm pretty sure that some of her troubles were solved (for now) by that Christmas card scam she had going - which she must have picked up from Jon Katz's posts about the cards and gifts coming in for the senior citizens in his town's center. She's a quick learner, that Jenna.

It's like she's trying to convince herself she's happy with her life.

  31. How could you just suddenly need a $1000.00 in 2 days. Sounds like it's time to pay the mortgage AGAIN? Why oh why does this payment come month after month? I'm so special, I should be allowed to live here for free. Unfortunately most smart people, or smart people that do business with other people don't want to do business with someone so unstable or unreliable. She is short-sighted, she does not run a business and what she thinks she is doing, she is doing improperly. Also she is selling a product that a long-time reader knows has no reviews or references about and is often not delivered or the wait time is 6 months out into the future. We've all seen the logo sales, but other than a go girl or quick thank you from a close friend or neighbor there are no objective reviews regarding prices, quality, customer service or wait time. I personally did business with her and would love for her to build a site so that I could put up my review. This is the real reason she never will. Her customer service was awful, she only responded back to me when I seemed to be ready to lose it. She was abrupt, impolite, unemotional and made me feel like I was a hindrance to her exciting life. She had to be reminded twice who I was and what I had paid for. In the end she did not deliver. I trusted too long, and was unable to recoup my money. Now that I see what she is capable of delivering, I would say $250.00 is way too much. I would pay $50-75 total and only pay 25-50% up front. She is a scammer. Not a sophisticated one, but scammer still the same.

    3. This is what it has come to - every time Jenna needs to pay for something, she lets her readers know how much and along comes a "gift". CAF exists only because of this. One day, some day, the gifts will stop, and Jenna's make believe world will come crashing down to reality.

      Delete
    4. It's not like mortgage payments are come when may - another? - oh dear, didn't I just pay that? kind of thing. They work just like rent, due each and every month on the exact same date - like the entire rest of the roof-over-one's-head world is expected to have it together (or get a 2nd job, or a roommate to share the monthly bill).

      So sick of her whining about needing LUCK to support herself and her chosen life while spending on non-necessities like there was no tomorrow!!!! I just want to shake her until her damn teeth fall out. What I'd truly like to do is force her to sit and respond to logical questions about how she can justify handling herself in the humiliating, unethical ways she does.

      Delete
    5. If you love something as much as she proclaims to "love" CAF and if it's your dream come true, you would make sure it is secure by the work and sacrifice of your own hand. The mortgage being paid on time, every month, by you and your paycheck and however else you choose to pay it would be testament to your love and devotion to your dream come true.

      Would you have problems at times-yes. Would you have to ask for help a time or two -yes. And after that you would regroup and figure out how to not have things like that happen ever again. They might happen again once or twice and you might then have to change your path or delay your dream etc.

      Jenna month after month and year after year has her readers fund her entire lifestyle. Never ever giving anything back to her readers, her patrons, her farm, her livestock. Ever. Just a hand holding out dependent on the masses to fund her life forever...

  32. After catching up on the mortgage via her "winnings" via the Beekman contest didn't she vow to stay up to date? I know it's a rhetorical question. I'm not friends with her on facebook so don't see all her posts. I know that she supposedly had guest over Christmas but then there was the flaming toothache again. So does anyone know who the mystery guests were?

    1. Spending that money on mortgage, rent, or bills was a clear violation of the contest guidelines. Too bad the beekmans don't care about integrity either as they readily funded a scam artist with in-depth knowledge of how she operates.

  33. She has "won" or received so much $$$ over the years, let's face it, she is a Russian mole sent in by Putin to scam every little old farm lady on food stamps and all the hipster creative types who just click her a few bucks, like, whenevar! Ruskies probably keep her on edge by sending job app's from Albany and I think they me be funding this blog!

  34. Yesterday I went to put the dishwasher on and opened the cabinet under the kitchen sink where I store the detergent. Noticed there was a lot of water there. Ugh... Another project. I've been working on eliminating my to do list and having a new one, especially an urgent one, isn't helpful.
    Pulled everything out of the cabinet that needed organizing anyway. Put the flashlight on my iPhone under the sink and crawled into the small space. The connection on the hot water line was wet. Turned off the water valve and went in search of the plumber tape that I knew was in one of the many boxes I store tools and supplies in. It took a few attempts at wrapping the tape around the connection before I got it to stay in place. It isn't sticky, even though it is called tape. Took a few more attempts to get the valves threaded back together properly and couple of cranks with wrench and it should be tight enough to turn the water valve back. Watched closely for leaks as I turned the water line back on. Success! Now it is back to the regularly scheduled to do list. Indoor plumbing is such a joy, especially when it works properly.
    Now I need to repair the roof of the chicken coop. Have a wonderful day everyone and happy new year.

    1. U2 Cate! I'm glad the fix worked. Good luck with the chicken coop. I've got a leaky faucet and I'm pretty sure it's a washer near the base of the faucet. I'm going to have to take the entire faucet apart and follow a YouTube video for the fix. Not too long ago I fixed the garbage disposal in the sink with a broom..A new one would have been $70.00. If a person is determined enough, creative enough and short on cash they'll learn how to do most things themselves. It is such a freeing feeling to be able to fix things yourself vs. depend on others or worry about the $ for the fix.

      Unfortunately JW after 10 years is it? knows nothing about being self sufficient, sustaining and independent. Instead she relies totally on neighbors, readers, and followers to provide her most basic needs plus all of her living expenses and whatever tickles her fancy at the moment.

  35. Has anyone seen the BBC series called Victorian farm? I watched a few episodes of it on YouTube recently. There are these 3 English historians who go to live on a rural English farm and recreate life in the Victorian area from cooking to farming to animal husbandry. These historian have also been involved in other series that cover life in Edwardian and war time. It's fascinating to learn all of the little tricks they had to use to clean, make soap, fertilize a pasture, not waste head meat from a pig butchering, and how to care for sheep. I highly recommend it if you need a farm or homesteading show to watch over the holidays.
    Best part is that it's free on YouTube. No need to subscribe to Amazon or Netflix to learn about agriculture that doesn't have anything to do with pop culture.

  36. The woman who writes the blog, "The Art of Doing Stuff" puts Jenna to shame. I looked around her blog and did not see one hint of any begging either.

    This woman does not have to beg. Readers come flocking which brings in advertiser dollars. If I wasn't blocked, I would sent Jenna the link to this blog and say 'this is how it is done'. But she wouldn't listen because it is too much work.

    It's ironic that the blog is called The Art of Doing Stuff. Because Jenna will repost that TED talk, "The Art of Asking", which is really just the art of begging or panhandling.

  42. A little off topic, but I found a really practical homesteading site written by a guy, Steve Maxwell. Loads of great, non-sugarcoated information for running a homestead.

    https://baileylineroad.com/homesteading/sane-sustainable-homesteading-part-1/

    In reading one of his articles, I loved this part:

    "Making a homestead thrive successfully for the long-haul involves a huge array of hands-on skills and a lot of tools. Deficiencies in this area are where so many homesteaders fail. Homesteading is really a form of DIY on steroids."

    "Your success as a homesteader is directly proportional to how expertly you can do a hundred different jobs that most people pay a professional to have done."

    JW is so obviously sorely lacking in this area.

    3. "The reality is, when homestead dreams die it’s usually because of starvation, casualties of nothing more than the failure to get enough of the right kind of work done in a day. Notice I didn’t say anything about working hard. You can work hard, but if it’s not work that puts food on the table, fuel in the stove, water in the sink or money in the bank, it’s probably a waste of time. As bills pile up, gardens don’t get planted, wood piles never get built, and roofs continue to leak, enthusiasm wanes. And the worst of it is, the cause of these problems often goes unrecognized until passion is cold, relationships frazzled and finances exhausted..."

    4. Sounds very familiar, Anon 3:26. JW's enthusiasm was gone long ago. Now she's just hiding from her homestead. It's a heavy weight on her financially and emotionally. The worst of it in her case (for us onlookers) is the neglect of her poor animals.

  44. In August it will be THREE YEARS since the Birchthorn sham!
    The only consolation I have is that she'll never be able to raise $ for a book ever again. Talk about shooting herself in the foot. If she would have done this the right way, she could have supported herself with a steady stream of kick starters/written several books by now. But we all know that's not how she rolls.
    Jenna's words from the Birchthorn description:
    If the Yellowstone Super Volcano errupts before this is possible, I'm sorry and all bets are off. That's the biggest risk. Short of that, this basically has to happen. I can't not publish a book at such a high investment from loyal readers. You will get your story!"

      I think Birchthorn is a communist plot - probably code word for scamming or some sort of secret classified document about hacking emails of innocent homesteader wannabees.

  46. "He let out his deep voice, which is basically a demand for hay. I don't encourage rude behavior by validating it (unless you're a 40-lb border collie. She gets a pass) so I walked to the barn top get hay and fed the quiet trio of goats instead."

    This really struck me as asshole behavior. Maybe Merlin is saying "mornin'!". And so what if he was asking for hay? Must be he's hungry, what a crime. I wish her moron fans would stop validating HER rude behavior ie when she itemizes her bills or hints around that she's having difficulty scraping up money for a new dairy buck.

    1. Good grief Jenna Woginrich you are an asshole.

      How dare those fucking animals in the fucking snow who rely on you for fucking hay communicate they are fucking hungry. For fucks sake.

      On the flip side I love when the yaks bellow when they see me. Yes indeed flakes of hay are coming! Their excitement to be fed translates into my excitement to feed! ...and it sure beats dodging spit flying amongst alpacas excited over their afternoon trough refill.

    2. She knows less than nothing about horses or any other animal. A deep neigh from an horse is not a demand for anything. It's more of a greeting, not rude at all, and certainly doesn't deserve the asshat response she gave. I'm glad she never will have children. She's too narcissistic to understand beings who rely on her.

    3. She should not own any animals period. She is so f-ing sick in the head to translate Merlin greeting her as being rude or demanding.

    5. This is so utterly ridiculous. Our own (stalled nightly, groomed daily) horses neigh in the morning as a greeting AND as a reminder that .... HEY-- IT'S HAY TIME!

      I know Merlin has the coat of a Yak and seems like a feral beast-- she's still seems surprised he's sticking around in her back field -- but, it still doesn't negate that horses are constant grazers, needing hay, fresh water and a 3 sided shelter (law here in NH, at least) at all times. He's hungry-- it's a request, not a demand.

      The fact that she thought his neigh was being "rude" is beyond me. It's pure theater and a way to spin a moment into something it isn't.

  48. "Take one step and think "I am still here." Take another step "Please let me stay a little longer." Friday and Gibson race past me, too fast to be dogs. They are silent snowmobiles, kicking ice behind their paws to make themselves shoot faster. "Ann Jumbar, if you are watching keep me brave and optimisic." I pray and I walk. The farm is all blue rays of light and cold yellow shadows. I will start off 2017 with hope."

    Oh, man, way to start the year off with heaping helping of melodrama. Just.Get.A.Job. She's going to have to house her ass one way or the other so I don't know why she acts as though she has any option in keeping her house or not. Like, does she intend to move back home with Ma and Pa? She's seriously going to dig her heels in and refuse to go back to work and lose her house?

    It's all so ridiculous. Is she even thinking clearly anymore? Either the graphic design and writing jobs are enough to pay the bills or they aren't. She can easily manage a part-time job to help fill the gaps while sorting out a viable plan. But she won't. She'll just keep spending her days hawking and working half-assed at her design work (ie watching TV) and hoping her readers will bail her out. She spent her summer training for a half-marathon when she could have been making money. Spending several hours a day running or hunting is a luxury a person in danger of losing their home cannot afford.

    1. Also, lots of people train for half-marathons, marathons, and other races and events all the time while holding down jobs. I trained for and ran a half-marathon while working full time and going to grad school. I don't have animals to take care of, but obviously her farm chores do not add up to a full time job and hours worth of homework, being in class, and taking the train or bus to and from class after work several times a week.

      She's also very lucky she didn't injure herself with the way she ramped up her mileage from nothing to double digits like that. You'd think it'd be important to her to make sure her legs and feet stay in good working order considering the amount of chores she has to do several times a day. What if she had hurt herself? I couldn't stop rolling my eyes that whole time. Thank goodness her running phase is over so I won't have to read about it every again. Also, running is expensive. Shoes, for starters, but also other gear and the cost of entry to half-marathons is no small chunk of change.
