The long run and this week’s training roundup

First of all, let’s get my new food obsession out of the way.

Sort of feeling domesticated and a good book

by Rebecca on August 20, 2014


This book is the reason that I did not run today.  I cannot tell you how long it’s been since I have read a really well-written story.  Yes, I am always reading, but mostly half-heartedly.  Anyway, this book is full of well-written stories, so staying up late has been totally worth it.  (I do plan […]

Some days I wake up looking for inspiration and motivation;  others, I can barely stand it.  Today it was the latter. I did not want to see a single meme telling me that I was not hardcore if I did not run.  The truth is, today I needed to just be in my life without […]

The Good I tend to want to be good at a lot of things, but most of the time I end up being okay at a few things.  As you get older you make peace with that and move on. However, when I can merge the worlds of accomplishing something for my running and for […]

We can’t have it all but we can try
