Sunrise, Sunset

Sunrise, Sunset

I find myself saying more and more frequently that what I’m really missing lately is not so much daylight but sunrises and sunsets. In the Phantom Tollbooth, there’s Chroma the Great and he orchestrates the sunrise and sunset each day. During the summer and especially in April/September, I was outside and got to see the … Continue reading

Decemberist

The thing is, December is a month that running kinda sucks. The thing is, December is a really great month for running. It’s cold and dark in December, so getting out the door is just so difficult.

Meh.*** ***My desire to PR and failure to do so might be coloring my lackluster opinion of this race. The … Continue reading

150% Off!

150% Off!

I’m not a big shopper. I am not a fashionable dresser. BUT I LOVE CYBER MONDAY. A lot of my friends posted things on facebook about how you can save 100% by not buying anything, and materialism, and about how this weekend of shopping is insane, and white people riot over black Friday, and blah … Continue reading
