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!
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!!!
