TOL: the cowtown race re-cap/positive self talk

I’m linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for Thinking Out Loud. The Cowtown was two weeks ago, and I’ve been meaning to put a few thoughts out there ever since (procrastination at its finest). The people I know…aren’t really athletically inclined, for the most part. So, when I tell them I did a… Continue reading TOL: the cowtown race re-cap/positive self talk

week in review: races

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review. I survived the week. This is a huge accomplishment. And I took quite a few pictures. Work was work.

what my running motivation looks like on any given day

Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons to talk about my running motivation–or lack thereof. Actually, I’m just trying to motivate myself into finishing the other half of my homework and getting a run in, since I was too swamped on Tuesday to run (bad runner, I know). These are the stages of my… Continue reading what my running motivation looks like on any given day

where I blather on about what I didn’t accomplish last year, and my goals for this year

I’m just going to say it:  I did not hit all my goals for 2016. There. No sugar-coating here. However, the mere fact that I had goals—fore the fist time in 3 years or so—is a big step, and I did make progress on my goals, so I’ll count it as a win. In 2016,… Continue reading where I blather on about what I didn’t accomplish last year, and my goals for this year

week in review: MIA

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for this one. It’s been like 3 weeks since I’ve posted on here, and a month since I’ve done a Week in Review post. Oops. So, what’s been going on? My staycation went well:  I did a deep clean of the apartment, one room per… Continue reading week in review: MIA
