 Is There Anything About You

That your family or friends do not know about you? Most of my friends and family know me as, well, ME!

A 32-year-old married mama of 2 kids that works a lot. Too much sometimes. Even on my days off (except for when we go to Hawaii. I will only check in for emergencies). They also know I have a freakishly weird love of running. Something that I never loved EVER until a year and half or so ago. They also know I LOVE coffee, hot cocoa, cooking, dancing, fall/winter, sweatshirts, slippers, did I say cooking? Yeah, cooking. And baking.  They also know I am a weather wimp and hate ridiculously hot weather. I would rather it be cool any day of the week. At least when it’s cool outside I can get warm. When it’s hot outside it is nearly impossible to cool down (unless in the ocean or a pool…or a/c but we don’t have that at my house). I love shopping, especially for other people. It’s so fun to see someone’s eyes light up when they open a gift. Even the homemade ones! I am terrible at shopping for myself because I am too critical.

They think I am good at being in charge when in reality I AM JUST GOOD AT FAKING IT! I am TERRIBLE at being in charge. I hate schedules and usually do everything at the last minute. TOTAL PROCRASTINATOR! I am very forgetful and usually have to make a list of things that need to be done. BUT, I am good at remembering USELESS INFO or FUNNY events that happened in my life. It’s the current things that throw me for a loop!

One thing that a LOT of my family and friends DO NOT know about me?  I HAVE A BLOG!

SAY WHAAAAAAAAAAAT?

Yep. That is one little bit of info that is for ME. Now, don’t get me wrong, some of them know. But majority DO NOT and I like to keep it that way. Why? Because then I can’t vent about them! Kidding. Most of my writing is rambling about running or my wacky life that has no direct impact on them. People like to read about topics that can help them, are interesting or offer instant gratification. Those are things I AM NOT GOOD AT! So, therefore I keep this little world that keeps me sane to myself. Or maybe, just maybe, I don’t want to be criticized for my bad grammar and overuse of expletives. I have a degree in journalism you know.

Now That I Got That Out Of The Way

We can focus on more important things. Like how I need to get back to running so you are not stuck listening to my nonsense! This is what happens to a runner when he/she is FORCED to chill.

Today is day 4 of run rest.

 I have been spinning and stair climbing like a mad woman. I am certain that the people at my gym think I am a lunatic. “Look at that girl who was just on the spin bike for 45 minutes. Now she is on the stepper at a level 13. She MUST need help. There is no need for that much cardio.” HA! If they only knew I would rather go run 20 miles!

My Achilles pain in almost GONE which is good. Now I need to focus on keeping it away. You know I have it in the back of my head that as soon as I go on my first run it’s going to hurt. Yep. Freaking. Out.

T-2.5 weeks til MAUI!!! I just pray that I will be able to take on the Maui Marathon Warrior Challenge like a champ and represent for us SoCal girls!!!

    I love you and your blog and for a minute I thought you were going to tell us you were done blogging and I was really sad. So please don’t stop because as you and most everyone else knows you are the reason I run. You are my inspiration to be more then just a runner, a haute running mama. :)

  2. Wow… I’m really glad I know about your blog… It’s so fin to read! But I can see why you wouldn’t want er’body all up in your business all the time. Keep rockin the xtraining hard core no matter what weird looks you get! :)

  3. Okay, besides that you are superfast (and younger and prettier), it seems we are a lot alike.

    Yeah, that’s me.

    Me too, except you say it better.

    I don’t have a degree in journalism, but I am a marketing director and write and edit things for a living. Things that are actually good, with good writing. My blog, not so much.

    I think that is why I like reading your blog – I can see that you are real and relateable (except for the super fast and pretty thing)

  4. I first started a blog to keep up with recipes and to pass them back and forth with my mom, sisters and girlfriends so my blog has always been open to people I knew in person. Sometimes I wish it weren’t when I want to vent about something, but those times are rare. Aaanyway. love reading your blog – glad I’m in the in-crowd! ;)

    Most of my family doesn’t know about my blog either. Ha! And I think it’s now like 4 years that I’ve been writing crap to it.

    Sorry to hear about your Achilles – it’ll heal up. Seems like your PF went away relatively quickly (compared to horror stories I have heard) so I’ll bet this one will do the same.

    I was getting crazy calf/achilles cramps during races earlier this year. Not sure how they went away – I stretched it pretty frequently and maybe the compression sleeves helped.

    Holy Hell…Spin and then more Stepper? After my workouts, my mind is already moving on to bigger and better things…actually it just goes straight to food. I swear I spend about 2-3 hours a day thinking about the next upcoming meal.

    I just got on the running train myself. I used to hate it, and just recently started to like it…soon maybe Loving It??

    • I know, it’s pretty ridiculous. BUT, it’s the only way I can try to stay race ready while on run rest. Who knows if it will even help. Dude believe me when I say I am freaking STARVING by the time I am done.

      My relationship with running is a love/hate kinda deal. You will likely be much better at it than me!

      P/S Love your blog.

    Just found your blog and I love this post. I can completely relate to almost everything you said….except for doing that much cardio :P hahaha I’m not that crazy….yet ;) I also want to say that I think you are beautiful, you look amazing!

    Gonna put you on my blog roll so I can visit frequently
