Now, I’m just bored

Now, I’m just bored

I did a shortish run Saturday afternoon and a 3 mile run last Wednesday but aside from that haven’t done much in the running department since Dopey ended. And now I’m just getting cranky. Amen, EJ. How I’m spending my newfound free time: sobbing uncontrollably at a Budweiser commercial about a puppy and a horse. … Continue reading

Crazy Yoga Shit

Crazy Yoga Shit

Because I’m still on my couch with my foot in the air encased in a nice chilly ice pack, I thought I’d bring this little gem from Gawker: THE WHITE GIRL WHO WAS FORCED TO TAKE A YOGA CLASS WITH A BLACK WOMAN. Yup. This really happened. And someone actually really wrote the original article. … Continue reading

Shrek Foot: Or how stupid struck again

Shrek Foot: Or how stupid struck again

You might be wondering why I haven’t been dazzling you with how well my return to running is going. Or you might have a life and not give a shit about this at all. Either way, I haven’t been running because guess who fucked up her foot nice and good by falling off her couch? … Continue reading

Pearls of Wisdom on Running From My Mom

Pearls of Wisdom on Running From My Mom

Disclaimer: I love my mom, I just can’t take her out in public. Some people have really supportive families who run with them, who think it’s a great idea that they’re pursuing an active, healthy lifestyle. I don’t know those people, I’ve just heard about them. Apparently they exist. My mom can be a little … Continue reading

Stupid Strikes Again

Stupid Strikes Again

People like to talk about their really good decisions. How they think things out, come to reasonable conclusions. I like to call this segment, “Stupid Strikes Again,” because as my mother will tell you, I’m always doing stupid things. As a public service announcement, I said I did my trifecta of strength training/running/stretching on Wednesday … Continue reading

How Amtrak Ruined My Weekend

Initially, I planned on heading home for my sister’s birthday party. I was going to surprise her, since I didn’t get her a gift I figured I could get away with saying “I’M YOUR GIFT.” And then promise her some kind of gift IOU. But Amtrak has been running on wonky schedule lately because it’s … Continue reading

The Trifecta

Today was kinda my first day back doing anything. Let’s just say I’m a big fan of milking the marathon for all it’s worth. I even took the elevator to the third floor at work instead of the stairs and mentally justified it by saying “but I just did a marathon” even though taking the … Continue reading

Slacker

I think we can all agree that Snow Days are basically god’s way of saying: Don’t do anything today. Of all the days of the year, Snow Days are the ones where it’s 100% socially acceptable to never get out of your pajamas and to eat a constant stream of junk food instead of actual … Continue reading

I should probably run but… eh.

I should probably go out and run at some point but I’m feeling a total lack of motivation right now. The refrain, ‘you’re fat, slow, and lazy so why bother?’ may have crossed my mind a few times. My mother informed me that I looked emaciated, to which I quickly responded, “It’s not possible to … Continue reading

2014 Plan

2014 Plan

The Dopey induced exhaustion has subsided a little bit, and with that monkey off my back I’m starting to think about what my goals might be for 2014. There’s the professional stuff that’s incredibly boring. I’m very ambitious until I remember my DVR is full and I need to catch up on Days of Our … Continue reading
