mish mash

Whew, it’s only Saturday afternoon and this weekend has exhausted me already. In all good ways though. On the job search front…I applied for what looks like an amazing position and got a very positive response the next afternoon. The HR representative said they were interested in talking to me about it and she sent me an official application to fill out and asked for … Continue reading mish mash

the 1/2 marathon that almost wasn’t

Sometimes I think too much. I almost talked myself out of doing this race for a couple of reasons. My running partner was benched and my training had fallen apart over the last few weeks. I was disappointed in myself that I hadn’t stuck with my training plan and knew I wouldn’t be able to run most of it like I’d wanted to. But I … Continue reading the 1/2 marathon that almost wasn’t

My workouts haven’t happened in about a week. Remedied that tonight with a 5K run/walk. I didn’t eat well today and kind of lost energy and heart about midway through. Meh. Hot, humid, and slow, but done. I got a direct message from our county library (or at least the social media person) that kind of made my day…”Just wanted to let you know I … Continue reading snippets

sleep trumps most everything

No workout or run last night and I’m ok with that. I intended to but instead fell asleep with kiddo around 9:00. Got up once to move to my own bed and slept till 6:00. This is unusual and qualifies as a restful night for me. I’ll take it. Tonight however…it’s on like Donkey Kong. I’m going to redo my bad run from Sunday. I … Continue reading sleep trumps most everything

cue annie lenoxx broken glass song

Because I win at life lately, I just spilled a bunch of tea inside the refrigerator and on the floor. Even better, I dropped a glass and it shattered into a million shards of feet shredding danger bits all over the tile floor. I vacuumed but shoes would be a good idea in the kitchen until I can mop and re-vacuum tomorrow. Thought you should … Continue reading cue annie lenoxx broken glass song

1/2 mary and battles with wacky nuts

In a few months I’ll be “running” in my second half marathon. I use the word running loosely because I walked the majority of the one last year and while I plan to run most of this second one, I am not above walking parts of it as well. Ain’t no shame in walking my friends. I have a training plan worked out and will … Continue reading 1/2 mary and battles with wacky nuts

i want to beat something with my crutches

I’m a mess, angry and dejected. Ever since hearing this afternoon that I have a stress fracture in my cuboid bone I’ve alternated between severe pissivity and extreme doldrums. Both involve mass amounts of tears. I can’t tell you how excited I was to sign up for my first half marathon this April and how pumped I was to have been running consistently for the … Continue reading i want to beat something with my crutches
