No fingers

I ran 13 miles on Saturday.  It was terrible.  I was doing pretty well in the first half, the weather was great and I was running with the wind.  Then on the back half, the sun started to go down and I was running straight into a cold and fierce wind.  With about a 5k left, I stopped giving a shit and walked the rest of the way.  This has been happening a lot.

I'm hoping that the running group my husband and I just started can get my head back into running.  I've had a ton of other things on my mind lately.  Now that we're back in OUR house, I have a hundred projects I want to get done.  Also, my daughter officially starts soccer tomorrow and I think I'm  more nervous than she is.  I have no idea how to interact with other parents that aren't already my friends.  It's a weird new world I'm about to enter.

I've also been kind of busy with an actual social life.  It's been quite a while since I've had one of those.  Last Friday I went out to a nice fondue place with friends and then out to a bar.  Bars obviously aren't all that fun for me right now and I was starting feel really tired.  But then shuffle board opened up.  As it turns out, I am quite a shuffle board bad ass.  It perked me up and I ended up staying out til 1am.  Go me!  It's not like I never go out, it just doesn't happen that often.  And when you can't drink, 1am is an accomplishment.

  1. Hey, 13 miles is still a long ass way to run. So, at least there's that.

    Good luck with the soccer moms. I'm betting they'll like you just fine :)

  2. You're doing so well for being pregnant! Don't give up stick with it!

    And shuffleboard is almost as much fun as skee ball!!!

    Glad you are gettig out :)

  3. Awe! Thanks you guys! I hope it goes well too!

  4. Also, you are the best date ever.... well almost!

  5. You're pregnant! Bone running, especially for distance. Get your heart rate up a little bit every once in a while if you feel like it, but only then. Enjoy the social life now as you will have to abandon it for a while after the baby comes. Then you can start to run for speed and distance again.

  6. I remember my first soccer pratice...I know exacty how you feel. I hope the other moms don't suck.

  7. John, I will right after this next race. And I've definitely decided that I flat out don't give a shit about walking. No Shame.

    Lindee, hopefully I'll see you at the games and have someone to chat with.
