The weeks are flying by and from here on out I increase my long runs by a mile each to hit my 10 miler the week before the race. Intensity is picking up and the dogs (and I) are feeling it.
Brief recap of notes:
- I can’t believe I haven’t told you about this - but I’VE HAD AN EYE TWITCH SINCE TRAINING BEGAN. I’m highly annoyed and starting to get concerned. Twitch, Twitch. A doctor’s appointment may be in order…. ((what’s wrong with me?!))

It can be easy to get the Sunday night blues imagining a stressful work week ahead. One way I’m combating the blues is to start hosting fabulous sunday night dinners! This kills a few birds with one stone: I’m able to spend time with people I love, enjoy the last bits of the weekend, reach my new year’s resolution of cooking for the people I love, and of course - start the week fresh with great memories of a perfect meal.
About half way through my half training and I don’t really have any updates that are out of the ordinary. Mother Nature is really making regret choosing to live in a northern climate, never in my life have I wanted to live somewhere warm and dry so badly. I’m pretty sick of having to work my training schedule around the weather. It’s hard enough to fit it all in!
I’m getting major Spring Fever over here. It’s making me crazy. So crazy, I’m thinking about dyeing my hair for the first time ever.
Let me begin by saying - I LOVE being a brunette. Actually, I’m the captain of Team Brunette. However, I can’t help but wonder what it’s like to be a blonde. Do they really have more fun? What would I look like? Will it grow out into an awesome Jared Leto-esque ombre??
So, I’ve picked out a few of my favorite brunettes who’ve made the jump to blonde quite successfully.
First, let’s talk about the brunette queen - Kimmie K. A+ girlfriend, A+.
Ah - The half marathon is 49 days away! It’s creeping it’s way into a very serious soon-ish thing I’m going to do. That being said - I’ve reached my threshold with allowed times I can talk about the half marathon with JPC. He’s told me that not everyone is running a half marathon and I need to stop talking about it. BUT I CAN”T STOP (WON’T STOP) because I’m scared/excited/nervous/only think about all the running I have to do.
Hey guys— just popping in for my weekly half-marathon training recap. I’m sure you can guess how this will go - I’ll tell you I ran a lot and hated it (hopefully) a little less than the week prior.
Well, you’re right. All of that is true. I’ll spare you a detailed breakdown of each day and just recap with a few fine points:
1. I’m treating my training the same way that an alcoholic working the step program lives life - one day at a time. When I’m running I take it a step further - one mile at a time. While I throw serious hissy fits before every run, so far it’s working. What’s crazier - is once I actually get out there, I pretty much stop feeling that way and ACTUALLY ENJOY IT.
At this point, the Peter Pilotto for Target collection came out ages ago - in Internet time anyway ;) I blogged about all the things I couldn’t wait to sweep up from the collection in eager anticipation.
