Seriously, y’all. What happened to all my motivation of a year ago? I ran four times a week, I ate healthy, I was totally focused on being healthier. Fast forward to now, and it’s all I can do to finish like 5 things on my to-do list, much less everything. Ha. As if. I’ve been… Continue reading my low-key half-marathon “training plan”…a.k.a. “laziness keeps making me start over”
Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for this bit of randomness. Okay, not randomness. Not to me. Today, June 1st, is my four-year survival anniversary. Four years ago, I had a major stroke, without warning, and I almost died. The doctors pretty much said I’d die. Fortunately, they weren’t the ones in control.… Continue reading today is for gratitude (thinking out loud)

I’m so relieved to have a break from classes for a bit. Grand Canyon: Gulp. 20+-mile hike….Can’t… Continue reading stuff and things
Did you miss me? No? That’s cool. You’ve been busy, I’m sure, what with the holiday craziness and making New Years’ Resolutions you know you won’t keep. Okay, maybe you’ll keep them. I don’t know you that well (and why is that? Because you never comment! How am I supposed to get to know you… Continue reading I’m baaaack…..
In case you’re wondering where I’ve been, well, blogging is difficult without Internet access. (And if you’re not wondering, then I’m talking to myself, which is par for the course lately.) Baby Brother and I moved in together at the end of April. My only requirements: high speed internet access and cell phone service.
