I’m the Worst: Running Edition

Week 3 of my training can pretty much be summed up with: terrible Week 4: less terrible I think I made 2 or 3 days each week, but I have no detailed recap to offer. I didn’t really want to track the level of my failure. I have excuses. Some of them are valid. I…

[Half] Marathon Monday #2

Every Monday I’m going to post a comprehensive update on my training. A recap of last week, with my mileages, pace, and a break down of what’s working and what I’ve learned; a look-ahead at this week’s training schedule; and then I thought it would be fun to finish with a song from my running…

Distance Run #1: 4 Miles

Yesterday I stepped outside and slammed straight into a wall of horrible, humid heat. Ok, so I might be exaggerating a little. But I was running right in the middle of the hot afternoon. I’m used to my evening, breezy runs. I suppose I’ll have to get used to it though. I’m moving to Texas…

Hit the Mat

I remember the first time I tried yoga. High school summer gym. The instructors gave us the option of running a few laps around the track or doing a yoga video. Most of my classmates filed outside to run. I laughed at those suckers and scurried upstairs for what I thought would be an hour…

Writing Wednesday #1

We’re just days away from Camp NaNoWriMo! I’ve made it my goal to write 50,000 words. I so wanted to do NaNoWriMo in November, but with my dissertation and other assignments I didn’t have the time. But now it’s summer and even though I’ve got a bit of traveling in July it should be manageable….

When it rains, it pours

It rained on me for the entire duration of my run today. And then, purely to spite me, it stopped raining as soon as I was done. But hey, at least I did it. Half a mile in, I was already soaked and irritated. I thought about just going home. I had passed my dad…

Broadway – The Gourmet Theater

I spent all Monday morning and afternoon lounging on the sofa with my laptop, catching up on YouTube and blog posts. My mom had The 100 going on in the background. She finished season one of Colony last night and was looking for another post-apocalyptic show on Netflix to fill the void. It started out…

On the Run Again

Three and a half years ago, I ran a half marathon. And I haven’t run one since. Oh, I’ve registered for a few, I’ve just never made it to race day. Classes, winter weather, travel, sickness–there’s always been some excuse I could throw between me and training. I’m done making excuses. On October 22, I’m…

Hi Friends

I’ve been doing a lot of traveling and I wanted a way to keep track of my adventures.
