13.1

13.1

So, I did it. Well, actually I haven’t done it. But I’m going to do it. I will press the “pay” button and have registered myself (and Kevin) for our very first HALF MARATHON. I pressed it. WTFWTFWTF This is the same feeling I had as I was contemplating my first Tri. The self doubt. … Continue reading

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy

No running. All I heard was no running. No. No. No running.   PT: I don’t want you running until your back is healed. Me: What about on a treadmill? PT: No. Me: What about a speedy walk? PT: No. In fact, I don’t really even want you walking up big hills. Me: What about on grass? … Continue reading

Perspective

Perspective

I was standing in front of my Aunt and Uncle’s house and found comfort in this view. I took a deep breath and took off running. I processed and cleared my mind. 30 has been a difficult year for me.

Pics Or It Didn’t Happen

If you’re a 90s kid, you know what I’m talking about with “pics or it didn’t happen.” Well, it did happen. 4 times in fact. AND, four days ago, I wrote a post about getting my training life together and how much better I feel when I do. Since then, I’ve ran 4 times. I … Continue reading

After a short lived disappointment, I stopped and realized that it also averaged out to be every other day – and that sounds a hell of a … Continue reading

Weekend Recap

Weekend Recap

That about sums up my weekend! Saturday was full of Youth Football and then the US National Men’s Soccer team. We had my brother’s family over and I made homemade baked empanadas. Delish! Sunday morning I baked and then went for a run before we attended a Chili Cook-off Super Bowl Party. The difference between … Continue reading

Accomplishments

Accomplishments

I’m trying to remain optimistic as the bad luck continues to pour over us; however, this post is not about that. This post is about the little non-scale victories. The other day at work was a nightmare. Just a straight up nightmare. I was ecstatic to get to my car and GTFO. Well, y’all – … Continue reading

Soothing the Soul

I had a much needed weekend of soul soothing and what I’d like to think of recovery and the road to redemption. After gorging myself on Friday morning with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Half Baked I realized I couldn’t continue down that dangerous road. I made a promise to myself as I licked … Continue reading
