I never came back and told y’all how I did in that little (ha, ha, hahaha) race I ran last year, did I?

Well, I finished.* Seriously, that’s the best spin I can put on it. And really, the extent of what I have to say about it.  Oh, wait. I did do a sorta summary of it for my little sister (the REAL runner of the family) (she’s like YOUNG and shit, though, so it’s totally unfair) when I got home. Here — I shall share: Continue reading

It’s been almost a year since I’ve written anything.

I have no idea where/how to start.

I feel like there should be this huge list of “what’s new” that I could put here, yet…no. Nothing really new.

Sunday morning on my way to the gym, I had to wait to turn at one intersection because otherwise I’d have run over a group of three men who were running.

Outside.

It was 13 degrees outside.

Thanks to Thursday’s additional snowfall, the streets were icy, snowy AND slushy.  Yep.  A trifecta of winter ICK.

My first thought was “Oh, come on – get out of my way!” (I’m impatient. Sue me.) Continue reading

1/2 Marathon Training, W1D2*: 30 minutes of cross-training. Did this during my lunch break.  So far, so good.

Yes, I know some of you have seen this already.
Yes, I know it’s unseemly to be so fond of a picture OF MYSELF.


Magically different from how it really was

The Photog was a GENIUS, I tell you

But I don’t normally like pictures of myself.  So, finally having one that I like, I sort of want to paper the world* with it.  And the thing I really like about it, aside from the photog making me look waycrazyprettier than I look in real life?  Is that at the time it was taken, I was actually having EVEN. MORE. FUN. than it looks like I’m having.**

*Apparently my world is damn small, and consists of a Facebook profile, and a blog with 4 readers.

**I KNOW.  The photographer was magical.



Congeries

I want to write, but I don’t have anything resembling a coherent post.  It’s all a jumbled bunch of crazy that I don’t even have time to flesh out into something comprehensible, let alone meaningful. (Which is not to say that I think I usually produce these fantastic universal nuggets of truth. I only mean that, usually, what I write has some meaning TO ME.  And what you’re about to see isn’t even going to be “laundry list” so much as “laundry pile.”  Well, forewarned is forearmed, or so I hear.  Onward!)
