    Happy #GlobalRunningDay 2017

    I thought it was National Running Day!…but, after looking at the blog the 2016 post celebrated the same holiday — #GlobalRunningDay. Coincidence or not, maybe creature of habit, but I retired a pair of Kinvara’s on this day last year and used new ones to celebrate it this year! I think I’m making my running comeback… The hardest part is realizing that you are starting the process over. When I started to despise the runs, it was because I was running a lot of miles and lost the joy of it. I was in good (my standards) running shape. I am no longer anywhere near that shape at the moment.…

    Running Raw

    No, not chub rub. And yes, you read that correctly. I actually wrote ‘running’ in a blog title! Things have been starting to click with running.

I did think about the WIAW post that would have normally gone up, but I didn’t feel a huge desire to run and write one before I enjoyed my day. So, I didn’t. It was nice to have a mid-week break, I feel renewed, although work is busy. Tradeshow season is upon us! Spring Break // I miss them. I miss that free week of nothing to do during the first part of Spring. Apparently when you have kids, you don’t miss it as…

    Pick a Side, Any Side!

    Screw whatever I had intended to write. This looked too fun, not to play! So there’s this girl..and I’m obsessed with her blog. J/K, but I do enjoy reading her daily posts. The lovely Cori over at Olive to Run posted this Would You Rather Running Style Survey #7 #1. Would you rather run in a thunderstorm or a snowstorm? I’d have to say thunderstorm. I can deal with thunder, although I might be a little jittery/cracked out looking runner. Although it’s hard to lace up (if this thunderstorm included) when it’s raining, but during and after, I always love running in the rain. The drops hitting my face gives me a…
