Here’s To 2016

2015 was the best year of my life… personally and the worst year running wise.  I was injured, pregnant and otherwise not really able to run and I missed out/was left out/ was not able to participate in a few things that I really wanted to, really really wanted to… anyway… that is all behind me (well …

GPS Watch…?

I’ve been going back and forth over purchasing a GPS watch for months, even when I couldn’t run I was thinking about lusting over which watch I’d get … then my mind would drift off to do I even need one land. Dear self listen up. First, umm yeah! you need one… Why? well I’ve usually used …

What’s Wrong With Me?

I’ve been officially cleared to run for a few weeks now… I have not actually run, not a real run at least. I jogged for 10 seconds, I had no pain, no discomfort, no sign that I shouldn’t run, expect for the fear in my head. Weird right? All year all I wanted to do …

I’m Back!

I am officially cleared to run! YAY! or not… ? After a about a year off from running, being injured, being weak and being pregnant  i’m finding it a little hard to get back out there, a little hard to find the motivation to keep trying because my mind is more advanced than my body, …

2 Months To Go

In just about two months I will (hopefully – on target as of today) be cleared to run again! Until then my plan is to take it easy, try not to obsess over spring races, walk as much as I can, try not to obsess over fall/winter gear, keep doing yoga 2-4x a week, try …

Updates

As I’ve made it VERY clear I can’t run, I’m not allowed, forbidden, it’s a big ole NO-NO and this SUCKS! For a while I tried to avoid other runners, race recaps, new gear, colorful sneakers, everything really. I thought it would help. I thought it would be easier. I thought it would make not …

No Running

Tomorrow is National Running Day… this makes me sad. It has been 254 days since my last run. Well… that is not true, I can’t tell you when my last run was, It was sometime late last summer/early last fall. I didn’t know, didn’t think and couldn’t have imagined that it would be my last …

Five weeks

Five weeks until my next half and I haven’t run more than 4 miles since May… A change of plans and 2 canceled races (canceled by me and life not the race ) and I’m unmotivated and slacking. I may be down but I’m not out, this is my plan. Week 1: August 12-18 Monday- …

Umm

So… I went from streaking, RWRunStreak -ing to nothing, nada, zip. 60 to ZERO ZERO slacking to 100% slacking 100% of the time, all in  in .4 seconds. I suck and I know it. This weekend I’m jumping back on the running train, the mountains have inspired and re-upped my love for nature and running, …

Running with Allergies

Everything is beautiful and blooming. Temperatures finally reached into and are staying in the 60’s, the sky is blue, sun is (usually) shinning and I’m afraid to go outside…. I’ve written about my allergies and struggles with spring running (due to allergies/asthma and the cycle of not being able to breathe well when things are blooming) …
