Falling Back

It’s happening.  Darkness. The days are getting shorter.  Last week we fell back an hour and while it felt good for a couple of days to have that ‘extra’ hour, I’m already back to my habits and anxiety that seems to come about this time of year.  I’m already looking forward to December 22nd not […]

To Run or Not?

I struggled with a couple of decisions today.  I’m fresh from vacation and feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and basically like a human being again.  Before vacation, I was stressed and I felt more like a monster.  I didn’t feel like myself. While on vacation, I started running again.  I ended up logging 39 miles – 3 […]

So with my best Sinead impression… It’s been 17 hours and 34 days since I have run. During this time away from running, […]

Bozeman Marathon

Last weekend, I was in Montana.  We were visiting my brother and friends while taking in some fly fishing and running a marathon.  You know, just like any other weekend.  The fly fishing was great and the marathon was tough.   It was my 7th and my friend’s 22nd marathon.  My friend is trying to run a […]

FOOB’s 2.0

Oh, what are FOOB’s you ask?  Well, when I was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010, I heard several folks refer to their new breast implants as “FOOB’s” also known as fake boobs.  So ever since then, I call my breasts – FOOB’s.  I really don’t care about my FOOB’s and don’t really have a strong […]
