I just figured out the (insert big, famous coffee...
This is completely life changing. Once I get the recipe honed to perfection, yes, I will share. And you will love me.
Today I passed 3 cyclists and 3 runners, and I met...
Today’s runner was a 50- to 60-year-old lady out running 9 miles while training for a half marathon she plans to run with her daughter. She had her hubby pacing her on a bicycle. Yesterday I was passed by a family I know, who lives on the corner, out cycling together; mom, dad, and 20-some-year-old daughter. (The daughter is/was actually a pretty advanced gymnast.) I love that I live in...
That awkward moment when...
I was running down the road, and suddenly, *le wild lot of pro-looking cyclists all approach. They were all decked out in their athlete gear. As they passed in single file, every single one of them systematically looked up at me, smiled, and nodded. At first, I thought it was awesome they noticed me, thinking I looked extra athletic or something to attract their attention. Then I realized they...
I am running, I just don't have time to post about...
Three miles today, three miles yesterday. ;)
Knuckle Lights For The Win!
Those things are all kinds of awesome. With the duo lights, I had no worries; everything was lit up quite well. They are really bright. And its effect on traffic? Fan-freaking-tastic. Cars do slow down and practically stop when they approach, going way over to the other side of the road. This is great. They don’t do that during the day. Love these things. I need a blinkie light for my back...
I may just try this plan for a while
Step 1: Roll out of bed.
Step 2: Run.
I am in such a funk. A deep funk. A funky kind of funk that is both funky and deep. Please tell me I can pull myself out of it again. Tell me I will find a way. I hate being in this state of heart and mind; the stomache, the heartache. I have had heartache feelings in my brain and my back as well as in my heart. Is that normal? I just ache. A lot. I am so lost, hurt, confused, shocked, and...
So there is a roller rink in town, 5 minutes from...
And it is open precisely ONE night per week for a 3-hours session that includes dancing and one 2-hour early morning session with organ music only. What in the actual, ever-loving mind is this? *Confused.* So very sad. That sucker should be open 7 days a week with lots of varying open rink times and events. There could be roller hockey. There could be artistic/hockey lessons and...
Also, in other weirdness,
I have suddenly been missing figure skating. A lot. Strange. I wish I could use my PIC skates outdoors, but the toe picks just rub down to nothing after about 2 spins. Gah. I never have found a solution for that. I love skating on them, though, and I can jump in them (singles only—they are MUCH tougher than ice skates).
Want some new running kicks suddenly.
I don’t necessarily need them, I just want them. Actually, I do need a new pair of trail shoes for the winter, but what I really want is a pair of Nike Frees 3.0. Yes.
I want to run. I need to run. Stupid asthma. I hope it clears up soon.
Oh, hello monster asthma attack.
So nice of you to visit me. I guess there will be no running tonight. Breathing is kind of important for that. :/
I Need To Find a Race...
…I really need some focus right now. I feel so good after running today, and I am quite pumped up. Running Track Coach I met today told me she thought my 5-K times should really start to drop. :) There is the 10-K in October. Maybe. I enjoyed it last year. I want to plan for a marathon, but with the current job I have being busy during peak running season and all the extra hours I work, I...
Sh*t My Hubby Says (after 5 hours of mowing)
“I’m gonna RoundUp the whole F*@#ing yard.” XD
Three Very Determined Miles
This Angel has her wings on her feet, permanently attached. However, today’s run was tough. I can tell my training disappeared, for the most part, over the past month or so. I was out of breath and struggling 1/2 mile in. Ugh. Cardio endurance has significantly dropped. I have gained a few pounds too, both from not eating right and eating too much as well as not running. Three miles in...
