Confessions: January 2014

Confession: I got an iPad Air from my awesome parents for Christmas, and have yet to buy a case for it. I’m just not sure what I want, so I have been carrying it around in the box it came in. I kid you not. On the airplane flying into LAX last week, a man actually made fun of my box. I decided it is officially time to get a real case.


Suggestions? Favorites? Likes and dislikes? What do I need to be looking for? Help! I have never owned an iPad and I am quite clumsy.

Confession: I am so burnt out from running I am not even looking forward to the Princess half marathon….yet. I KNOW this will change as I get closer and more excited, but right now running three races in three days makes me want to cry a little.

Confession: I cried Sunday night watching the Bachelor wedding on ABC. Like a little girl. When Sean started crying as Catherine walked down the aisle, I lost it.

Confession: I got home from Tinkerbell last Tuesday and I have only done one load of laundry. Maybe it I just keep the door closed and pretend it’s not there it will go away?


Confession: Every time I go out of town I bring my straightener and curling iron and never use either of them. I am SO LAZY when it comes to my hair. I can’t even remember the last time I wore it down. I should just stop pretending, it would give me more room in my suitcase.

QOTD: Do you have any confessions? Have you fallen victim to any of mine?



WAHOOOO! I have officially been CLEARED to run again! I went to the doctor yesterday morning, and he said I could start back slowly as long as I didn’t have any pain. He said the pain I had after our last visit was probably a bruise from him pressing on it. I told him it was a different pain than the injury pain, and he said “was it dull and achy” and I said yyeesssss! That’s EXACTLY how I was going to describe it. Whew! glad to know I’m not crazy (well, not for that reason at least. )

A HUGE thanks to everyone for being so sweet and supportive. I know I whined and threw a pity party in the beginning, but I was being honest, which I find to be so valuable here on RWS (and everywhere!) So that’s for sticking with me, now hopefully we can get back to our regularly scheduled run-blogging.


So, to start, I am going to start slow with just a mile or so, slow running, maybe walking a little, then move to 2, 3, etc. My fears are not over though…one of my biggest ones is that I will start running and it will start hurting again….praying it doesn’t!


please don’t fail me now, foot!

So, to celebrate I did two things. First, I got a massage (thank you Christmas special at the massage place!) and second….I agreed to run the Rouge Orleans relay on an all girl’s team EEEPP! Remember the post I did on Hood to Coast where I talked about it? it’s actually going to be a reality and I could not be more thrilled! I figure it will be a good way to get back into things because no leg is longer than six miles, and it’s all flat (running on the levee) so I think I can handle six at a time by mid February.


I will be running with friends and fellow bloggers Katie and Kristyn, as well as some ladies I have yet to meet (6 of us total) We are going to have FUN!

SO….who watched the Bachelor on Monday? WOW that girl Jenna…I can’t believe she got a rose! I was excited to see a blogger make the show….aaannddd then I was embarrassed for her…she is giving bloggers a bad name. Please already think we are nuts, we don’t NEED help here. Did you watch? What were your thoughts?
