Election season
So, background info: I don't usually hang out without pants, but I chafed a huge hole into my thigh on Friday's run that I'm trying to get to heal and it isn't playing well with pants. (I apparently tore my shorts on that run and was on such a runner's high...

Runniversary!
Someone throw confetti, because 4 years ago yesterday I ran for the first time! It's hard to believe how far I have come and how much I have changed. More than 40lbs gone and I was struggling then to hobble through less than 2 miles in 25 minutes - yesterda...

Life in memes
School started yesterday and I've been a little scatterbrained so haven't been posting as much as I've been meaning to. So here's a quick recap of life lately, told in memes. 1) Double facepalm I spent the last week looking desperately for a library book, a...

Pokemon Go go go!
So Pokemon Go came out last week and like a lot of people, my family and I are ob-sess-ing. (Most of us. My husband thinks the concept is neat but doesn't dig the critters. Fair enough. The kids and I are geeking out though.) I mean, I grew up in the 90s. T...

Run streak, school, and training
So my classes opened up today and I got a good look at what I can expect my workload to look like. And...it's high! It has me rethinking my ability to train for a marathon this year; if I can do it, I'm not going to be able to do it as well as I want. I jus...

School thoughts
Ahhh. How is that I am now less than a month away from starting school? (Fall quarter 1 starts in July, go figure.) I had so much time and and and and...crap! Not that I've been wasting my time - I've completed entrance loan counseling, crunched numbers and...

Missing: One Mojo
I can't get in a groove lately. Even a rain run - which is usually my soul-cleansing cure-all - didn't bring it back. My legs don't want to turn over, I'm slow, and with the addition of heat and humidity...I'm just totally not feeling it. Clearly I overdid ...

Cincinnati Zoo takeaway
So unless you've been living under a rock lately (in which case, I envy you), you already know that recently, a highly endangered silverback gorilla was shot at the Cincinnati Zoo because a 3 year old managed to clamber into the enclosure. While the two fem...

Soldier Field 10 - recap
So, I did drag my sorry butt to the Soldier Field 10 today. ( I wasn't so sure I would as of yesterday. ) I got up at 4am and was out the door by 4:50am. As late as 4:45 I was still debating whether or not I wanted to go brave the heat and humidity but..I h...
