Rainy run

Today's run was much much much better than my last one. My only goal was to finish the scheduled training day (5 min run/1 min walk for 48 min, plus warm up/cool down) without crapping out. Goal accomplished. 4.1 miles in the rain. Have I mentioned how much I love running in the rain? Minus... Continue Reading →

brain float

Today = the dentist = nitrous oxide = I AM THE MOST HILARIOUS PERSON IN THE UNIVERSE. For about 40 minutes anyway. Some thoughts while floating... Don't stop breathing, keep breathing, take the deepest breaths you have ever taken in your life, don't waste this precious sh!t. Oh wow, hands and feet are so numb...OMG... Continue Reading →

Yesterday’s workout

Because you care. I decided to give the foot another day off. Plus, I'm scared I will go crazy if I run on it and it acts ugly so I'm delaying expected disappointment. Such a great attitude I have, I know. Anyway, the gym was good for me as it always is. Mind clearing and... Continue Reading →

Sprayground fun

Kiddo loves spray parks and we are lucky to have some great ones close by. Yesterday afternoon we ventured to Cumberland Park in Nashville. It was the perfect day for it, not to hot, not too sunny (although I did get a little crispy on my nose and forehead). The park is beautiful, with lovely... Continue Reading →

dud of a run

So, we entered Pathetic Town on the run today. It didn't start off well, nor did it end well either. I had downloaded my intervals onto the Garmin, got dressed, grabbed my gear, got to the greenway and realized that I'd forgotten....the Garmin. No biggie, I have Runkeeper on my phone. Yay for backup plans.... Continue Reading →

saturday busyness

I'd love a nap but its already 4pm and that would just be bad news bears. Its been an extremely full day already. Kiddo had yet another birthday party to go to, this one all the way across town at one of her friend's homes. They had water slides and kiddie pools set up and... Continue Reading →

this is why i’m in therapy folks

Texts this morning from yet another friend who is struggling for different reasons. Sometimes people are incredibly mean, closed minded, and heartless in their well-meaning-ness, if that makes any sense. I know life is difficult and there are struggles to be had. Its not all peachy keen, hunky dory, sunshine, rainbows, and unicorns, but I... Continue Reading →

sweat

I managed a decent cross training workout at the gym last night. See? Yeah, I know. Arm strength is pretty sad. Tonight, we run.

Heeeeeey 2am

Brain won't shut off or shut up. Sometimes it screams at me, things I don't want or need to hear. Or maybe I do, I don't even know. I was going to text a friend who would get it but my cell service seems to be down. Throat is feeling a tad swollen so I'm... Continue Reading →

more than princesses

Five years ago today I endured hours of labor and came out of it looking pretty rough. (see photo evidence) I'll never do THAT again. Heh. No, I'm not kidding, seriously, I won't. One kid and done with that, so y'all can stop asking me when I'm having another. For real. Stop it. Right now.... Continue Reading →

zombie brain

A bit tired today because of my late night but not too bad. Today has been another quiet one. I was feeling cooped up at work so I grabbed lunch and sat in my favorite park for a while. Haven't been in ages. Trying to reclaim it or something I guess. I do love to... Continue Reading →

Monday Funday

Not really but it sorta rhymed. Here's some random stuff. I went to bed semi-early last night. Because I'm old and tired and love sleeping almost as much as chocolate. Almost. Now if I could eat chocolate WHILE sleeping, then I'd really have something. I'm having an extraordinarily bad hair day. I'm trying to grow... Continue Reading →

Four miles

Run/walk/sweatfest/triednottodie on the greenway today. I got four miles in and was happy with it for the most part. I didn't make it out the door at 5:30 as planned, as I'm not good at plans apparently. So it was hot as blacksmith tongs by the time I did get out there. I did decent... Continue Reading →

party central

Today...kiddo's wild birthday party with some of her friends at "the bounce house place", as we call it. Whew. It was a hit but, whew. Kid was SO stinkin' excited. This is a really fun, if exhausting, age. Her actual birthday isn't until Wednesday so I guess we'll just consider this her birthday week since... Continue Reading →

the good kind of tired

I'm exhausted y'all. It was my day off but I did anything but relax. I spent three and a half hours baking in the hot sun (sunscreen happened this time though) unpacking/opening boxes of food and then distributing said food to local folks in need and making sure there was enough for the line of...
