It has been a redic amount of time since I have written anything here, but I want to start up again. There have been many times I have wanted to write here, but I didn’t really know how to get started.
Since my last post I quit my job in Idaho, ran a marathon (too late for a race re-cap, but finished in 4:12), moved to New Hampshire, started a new job, turned 30, ran through my first super snowy winter and raced a bunch of different distances in New Hampshire (including a super slow and sloggy 50K)- check out my races page if you are actually interested in the details.
I had major summer running plans… but now I am temporarily sidelined making the trail marathon at he end of July that I signed up for nearly impossible. And I am questioning how ready I will be for the marathon I signed up for in early October now as well.
So, I will probably continue to look like this most of the time and hide any Facebook posts by anyone who could possibly be enjoying a good run. Just kidding. Maybe. I guess I will also be doing some cross training, resting, cheering for other people, and hoping for a miracle.
If only my injury would get me out of cutting the grass. I am sure my neighbors would appreciate it if I would wear a shirt, but I can’t resist flaunting my mildly destroyed and majorly sagging empty baby condo all over the yard. What can I say…it’s hot outside. Plus, I love how the vibrations from the lawn mower make my “6 pack” look especially appealing. Damn, I make motherhood seem so sexy.
I have no problem filling up my usual running time with hikes with the boys, trips to the lake, pool parties in the yard, beer
pounding sipping, writing a little more, reading a bit, and soaking up the summertime. I am pretty happy to be enjoying this:
