It’s been a long time since I last wrote a post…seven months and ten days ago to be exact. I have a million excuses and really no excuse to why I haven’t written. When I think back over the past seven months I feel like time just went too fast and too slow, which I … Continue reading Where Does All the Time Go?
Can you believe we are almost to the halfway point of 2018? Where has this year gone? For me this year has been unrelentingly busy. I look back at my three seemingly simple life goals I set back in December and am not surprised that I have made very little progress on them. To refresh … Continue reading Summer Time and the Living is Easy
So, just under the wire but here is my third post of the week, just as promised. And to end the week, a weekend wrap up. Friday, after TWO months of fighting working with Firestone, they decided it was not normal that my front driver’s side tire kept losing 10 lbs. of air about … Continue reading The Weekend Wrap Up
In running you are always warned about doing too much, too fast. When a problem or injury occurs, it comes back to the reasoning that you did too much, too fast. While I absolutely believe this reasoning – it’s true to many aspects of life - hearing these wise words while you are in throws … Continue reading What a Pain in the….FOOT?
In my last blog post (remember the one WEEKS ago when I said I would write more), I wrote “if you have time to complain about being too busy, you obviously have some free time.” Apparently writing this simple little sentence made someone, somewhere, very angry and they decided to put me in my place. … Continue reading Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire
In mid-May after a winter and fall of not following any sort of training plan and honestly mostly only running on weekends I decided, on a whim, to sign up for the Colfax Urban 10 Miler. I had done the Colfax 5k and Marathon Relay in the past years and the thought of not participating … Continue reading Planting the Seed of Doubt
In September, I wrote a post about how I couldn’t possibly forget the feeling after a good run and swore that running would once again become a regular part of my life. Turns out I am a complete liar. Within a week of writing that post I had forgotten all about the benefits of the … Continue reading Catching Up and Battling with my Sinuses
This weekend was supposed to be a great weekend away. I was excited about the getaway but there was a lot that needed to be done before I headed out of town to meet Brandon in Gunnison. I had to work in the morning and host a big meeting, pack, get the house ready for … Continue reading How Could I Forget this Feeling?!
I am not known for being an overly emotional person. If you ask anyone (other than my husband) they will agree that I am pretty even-kelled. (My lucky husband on the other hand gets to see the good, bad, and ugly of my emotions.) I never cried in front of people and it was rare … Continue reading Good Grief
Have you ever seen the movie Groundhogs Day? Poor Bill Murray gets stuck in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania on Groundhogs Day reliving the same day over and over again.*** Like my friend Bill I am feeling like I am in a bit of a rut. Let's start by laying it all down. I haven't run a race … Continue reading How Do I Get Back on the Wagon?
