I ran today for the first time since my marathon on May 1st…absolutely no pain in my foot. It doesn’t hurt now…just feels a little tight. I’m hoping and praying it is healed and done being stubborn so I can continue running and feeling great :) I’m so happy…and I can definately tell I haven’t run for a month. Dang coming back is tough…but I dont even care. I ran!!!!
Why am I sooooo cranky!? It could be the lack of sleep…the absolute terrible eating of cake, hotdogs, and crap all weekend due to graduation celebration…it could also be my lack of a workout since thursday….plus it’s very possibly due to the fact that I still haven’t been able to run since May 1st. I am so grumpy and pissy and I hate it. What is happening to me. Sigh.
On a lighter note…I did sign up for the Denver Rock n Roll 1/2 marathon on October 9…um hey excited. Hopefully my foot stops being a complete ass and lets me start running soon..I refuse to throw 80 bucks down the drain.

Ummm reblog!! LOVE
It’s been 3 weeks since my marathon and my foot is still not doing so hot. I managed to run 1.5 blessed miles today..I felt so amazing except for the nagging foot pain..I could have gone for 2 hours. Sigh…It really is discouraging but I just have to keep reminding myself it will be okay.
For anyone who has a nagging injury, has experienced setbacks, a little bit of weight gain, gotten sick, gotten hurt, or just plain had a bad day…I know you don’t feel like it now, but it will be okay. I know it’s terribly hard and usually fairly discouraging to go through setbacks or injuries of any kind…but if you pushed yourself hard enough to get injured in the first place, it probably means you’re a pretty badass athlete to begin with. I know you want to run, jump, sprint, swim, row, hop, skip, (insert verb here)…and something is holding you back, but just be patient. It’s so easy to get disheartened, but if you are patient, you will move this mountain and come out stronger on the other side.
Do not lose heart, do not lose hope, and most important do not lose the passion and fire for what you love to do.
I am SO sore!!..and it feels amazing!! Don’t you just love that feeling…especially after a workout. You’re tired, your limbs feel like jelly, and you are dripping with sweat…but nothing can beat that feeling for me. Endorphines pumping, sweat encrusted, and I am pleasantly exhausted. Love it…
I came home to 5 new followers! yay! Thanks guys…keep spreading it around, I’d love more followers!! :) Here you’ll find details about my running, fitness, and life in general..hope you enjoy!Thanks :)))
Of my high school career. Today was my last day and I graduate next Saturday. HOLY crap…I have a million different feelings and emotions running through me right now. Today was a bang…I lived it up..it was a blast…but now I’m sad, happy, excited, elated, depressed, nostalgic, hopeful for the future…sigh. It all feels really bittersweet.
We did our senior run today also. All of us gather, hiding toys and loud obnoxious things from the administration, and 1..2..3..we’re off. We sprint through the halls screaming and yelling, squirting water guns and silly string, and blowing on horns of all kinds. I felt like a little kid again. Sigh I’m sad! I remember running around on the playground with those kids and now we just did our run to signify the end.
But on the other hand….I’m super excited for all the stuff to come. I’m trying to live in the moment…and today was great.

oh my gosh love!!
Or perhaps a Drama Queen? I don’t know…but I am a senior in high school and we got our yearbooks today. I may just be an emotional female or a whiner…but I am legitamately sad! I started at my school in 3year old preschool…15 years I have spent with some of these kids…we grew up together..spending 5 out of 7 days of each and every schoolyear together…and now we’re all grown up and we’re about to go our separate ways. I don’t know why I have this reaction…at the beginning I couldn’t wait to be done and now it’s gotten closer and closer and closer…first it was january…and then march hit..and now it’s May 13 and I am finished with my high school career forever in merely 2 days. It’s not school that I’ll miss..it’s the people. Some of these people have impacted my life more than they know…and it just makes me sad to think I won’t see them everyday. Sigh..I’m a whiner..but I don’t even care. I’m sad.
if you are a runner please reblog. i would love some new runners to follow and be inspired by! :)
PS runner in my book = anyone who enjoys running. doesn’t matter for how long or how fast.
And I second what she said about runners.
I’d love to follow more runners!
Awesome!!!!! I’d love some new runners to follow… we rock :o)
Thank you!! Slowly but surely it’s getting better…it’ll be two weeks on Sunday..I’ve been too chicken to run thus far because I don’t want to screw myself over…maybe this was God just forcing me to take two weeks off because I probably wouldn’t have otherwise. ;) I’m stubborn!
