Fat Runner

Fat Runner

True Story: I’m struggling to find the energy the come home and run after working a 10 hour day. I’m sticking to my long runs on the weekends and walking the dog throughout the week, but honestly, I’m not doing the short run during the week. I’ve got a 4 mile run on Tuesdays that … Continue reading

Make Yourself a Runner

Make Yourself a Runner

I was going back and forth on my fatty forums with Sunarie, a delightful user, about if I want to do the half marathon I am registered for. I have 10 weeks to train. Training would start TODAY. Our conversation went something like this: Me: 13.1 miles of nothing but running…I hate running. I love cycling … Continue reading

Guantanamo Baby Bay

Guantanamo Baby Bay

Yep. It was just as awful as I thought. My only saving grace is that the ladies that work there are super sweet and Brooke doesn’t seem particularly upset when we get there. But… I have a few legit concerns about daycare. Let me start by saying that I once worked at a daycare. I feel … Continue reading

Just Not Ready

Just Not Ready

11 weeks. My sweet, sweet girl was 11 weeks yesterday. It’s hard to imagine a life before her, and nor do I want to. In her short existence she has taught me more about myself and life than my 32 years here has. My mom bought Brooke this sweet outfit and it could not be … Continue reading

I Still Hate Hills

I Still Hate Hills

In case y’all forgot, I hate hills. I’ve always hated hills. Not much has changed. I hung out with my Runner Mom (RM) friend, Angelina today. We spoke earlier in the week and she suggested we take a walk if the weather was nice. The weather was nice.  I wore my fancy new running shoes, … Continue reading

First Run

First Run

I nearly died, but I did it. I went on my first actual PP run last week. I got Monster to sleep and had all of my spin stuff out and ready. Cleats by the trainer, clothes, and water. I hopped on my trainer and it just spun all willy nilly. There was practically no resistance. … Continue reading

Bad Listener

Bad Listener

So, I’m a bad listener.  I don’t follow directions well. Especially when it involves me not getting my way. I’m having a difficult time balancing mental health with physical health. I NEED  to exercise for my sanity, but I need to rest my body for recovery. It’s such a slippery slope for me. Since it has … Continue reading

Bite the Bullet

Bite the Bullet

I bit the bullet, swallowed my nerves, found my inner fathlete and signed back up for the Atlanta Track Club today. I took a long walk today with the dog and despite sweating like a whore in church (seriously – wtf is it 70 degrees in November?) remembered who I am. I am a fathlete. … Continue reading

The Good, The Bad, The Funny

The Good, The Bad, The Funny

I’ll break this up into three sections. The good. The bad. The funny.   The good: Halloween and Baby Girl’s room = success!!! I took the rather freaky approach to Halloween and went with how I feel: she’s trying to escape. I definitely freaked a few people out, but hell, it’s Halloween. I had about a … Continue reading

Control

Control

There are stages to pregnancy and currently I’m in the “I just want to roll over comfortably, stop peeing and feel like I have some some control over my body again” stage. I met another woman in our birthing class that has inspired me. She’s run her whole pregnancy and I’m seriously in awe. She’s … Continue reading
