PO’d Motivation

Yesterday there was some stress going on. I like my hair too much, so I was ready to pull someone else’s out. These lyrics from Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Stronger’ rang true: You think you got the best of me Think you had the last laugh Bet you think that everything good is gone Think you left … Continue reading

Buyer’s Remorse Hangover

Saturday was a wonderful day! Woke up early. Drank some really really good cups of coffee. Got a few house chores done. Headed out to meet my friend Jessica for a run. We planned and mapped out an 8 mile run in her neck of the woods. What I love most about running in a … Continue reading

I Got New (Not Running) Shooz!

Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted. Usually that would mean someone’s gonna have something really good to talk about when they write again. No. Not so much. My life has been pretty dull. πŸ™‚ Monday, I was a total slacker. I didn’t do nuthin’, as some of my southern friends would say… I … Continue reading

Well, This is Fancy

Yesterday was pretty uneventful. Pushed out 6 miles in 57:09. Still stuffy. Walked my dog for a mile and a half. Helped Bruce clean his yard. With two people it only took 2.5 hours. My hammies were pretty sore this morning! Let’s get to the good stuff. Today. We slept in. I’m actually kind of … Continue reading

Ix-Nay on the Unning-Ray

Sorry I haven’t written anything interesting lately. There hasn’t been much, actually no running lately. My head is chock full ‘o mucous. Real charmer, I am.Hope you all are having a beautiful Thursday!

Prove It

Running is just you, the work you put in, and the clock. You can’t cheat yourself. If you don’t put in the miles, you can’t go to the starting line thinking you’re going to pull a miracle out of nowhere. You get out exactly as much as you put in. – Desiree Davila This explains … Continue reading

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I’m usually not a mushy person. Cheesy maybe, but definitely not mushy. Just wanted to say Happy Valentine’s Day! Here, I picked a flower for you. It smells pretty.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

My work days usually begin with me rolling out of bed, pushing my hair out of my face, trying not to look in the mirror, and throwing on some clothes so I don’t scare the world when I take my dog for a walk. I’m a morning person in the sense that I don’t come … Continue reading


This weekend started off rough. I’ll flip to Saturday then go back to Friday. Saturday my friend Jessica and I ran the IOP (Isle of Palms) Connector. We ran from Mount Pleasant over the connector onto IOP then turned around and went back. A total of 7 miles is what we ran. In 1:05:12. Yes. … Continue reading
