A start to the week

Well, I guess spin class wasn’t meant to be after all.  I got pulled over taking Sean to preschool which is all of two miles from my house.  I guess I was still feeling a little introspective because I was totally lost in thought and had no idea why I was being pulled over.  Apparently…

A Little Whining, A Little Introspection

CAUTION: WHININESS AHEAD. Hmmm… in my last post did I say I wasn’t going to be running for a while?  I am so bad at that.  Saturday night as I was checking to see what time spin class was the next morning, I just didn’t want to do it.  The thought of another morning in…

Frustration and Race Memories

After my run with my running group last night, it’s clear to me that I shouldn’t be running yet.  Running just shouldn’t hurt so much.  On top of my ankle hurting, my right hip is starting to hurt.  I’m sure I’m favoring that side and running all whacked out to compensate.  I just don’t think…

Time Management

Wednesdays have been busy the past few weeks.  I work 10-1 and then again 5-8.  I really try to have dinner put together so that Lawrence doesn’t have to worry about it when he gets home from work.  I know cooking is the last thing I would want to do after a long day at…

Do what you love!

There’s something incredibly satisfying about a freshly painted wall.  It just feels so new and clean.  It’s a blank slate and opens up a world of possibilities.  I’ve been having a lot of fun searching pinterest for inspiration.  That site is so addicting.  And full of awesome things.  Lawrence loves it when I’ve been on…

Another Weekend Flies By!

I’m really beginning to think that time actually speeds up starting at 5 pm Friday night and then slows back down on Monday morning.  Although these days, it seems like time is just flying in general.  I swear I went to bed 20 and woke up 33, how did that happen?? I had a great…

Bad Decisions

Last night was the first Wednesday night group run that I’ve gone to since I was cleared to run again.  We meet at the running store and do between 4 and 6 miles depending on the day.  After we run, we come back to the store, have a drink and hang out.   I started coming…

My Thoughts on Boston

The past couple of days have felt pretty surreal to me.  I’ve read so much about the tragedy in Boston at this point and everything is much better said and more eloquent than I could say it.  My friend posted this article on facebook yesterday.: “In his excellent piece for The Nation yesterday, Dave Zirin…

Gratitude

Well, the weekend was going pretty awesome.  On Saturday, I had a good day at work, an awesome run and a really fun date with Lawrence.  Sunday was busy with spin, church, soccer games and some spring cleaning.  And then last night happened.  We picked up the kids from CCD and headed downtown to see…

It’s Friday I’m in Love!

Things I’m loving today… 1. My spin instructor.  I just want to put her in my pocket and bring her home with me.  That’s normal right?  I love my Friday class so much.  I don’t know what it is about her.  The class is really fun, really hard and she is just so motivating.  The…

Three Things Thursday

1.  Being the sweatiest person around, I’m usually not a fan of hot weather.  I’m a spring and fall kind of girl.  While I love the activities that summer brings (yay pool and beach!), I could do without the heat and humidity.  Yesterday it hit 90.  In April.  I feel like normally I’d be pretty…

Injury Update

I’m still in a little shock.  There was a little crying, a lot of smiling and one awkward moment where I almost hugged the doctor.  The news?  I’ve been cleared to start running again!!!  The doctor was amazing (and not just because he said I could run).  He spent over 30 minutes with me.  I…
