The topics of love and marriage have come up a lot in many of the conversations I’ve had with friends and coworkers lately – more so than usual, although I’m not sure why. Some are finding love for the first time, others are struggling to deal with a divorce, and others are just navigating the daily… Continue reading LESSONS I LEARNED WHEN I GOT DIVORCED
After all the unexpected rest last week, I was raring to go this week. Well, kind of. I wanted to be, but mostly what happens after a few days off is that I just continue my descent into laziness, which is why I don’t really like taking days off in the first place. It’s a slippery… Continue reading TRAINING WEEK 8: UNBREAKABLE
First up: some of you asked me where I got the paper map flowers we used at my wedding reception! Fear not, I certainly did not make them myself (ain’t nobody got time for that) and I bought them here on Etsy. They were fabulous and I’m keeping them forever! I received an email/comment/facebook message/some form of communication… Continue reading BARRE SO HARD
I’ve been blogging for about 3.5 years now, and in that time, I have learned quite a bit about the blogging world from the perspective of both a blogger and a reader. Perhaps it’s a function of the expansion of blogs in my reader or the fact that I’ve just been doing this awhile, but… Continue reading T-REX RANTZ: BLOGGING EDITION

I’ve been beating myself up for months now about the marathon I have coming up this weekend. I’m not ready, I haven’t trained enough, I’m going to be miserable, it’s going to be hot, a bird is going to poop on me, the Gatorade will actually be Powerade, and I’ll get a PW. Maybe all… Continue reading NEGATIVE NANCY, BE GONE!
Whew. What a weekend! And week. I worked a ton of overtime this week for a big project and it’s really thrown me off my schedule with obligations from school and my other work. I don’t know about you, but when I’ve got a lot going on like I do right now, I really struggle… Continue reading REMEMBER REST DAYS? ME EITHER.
I can’t believe it’s almost the end of September. Why do the best months of the year (fall) fly by while the suckiest months (summer) seem to last forever? It isn’t fair! This is my favorite time of the year to be outdoors and be active. While I love winter more for running due to… Continue reading ACTIVITY OVERLOAD…AND T-SHIRTS!
Well, I got nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award by my friend Michael over at Running Around the Bend (Thank you! Even if you just did this to torture me!), and although I’m pretty sure he nominated everyone he knew and I pretty much never participate in things like this, I decided to play along. I… Continue reading Focusing On the Positive
