Three Things Thursday - Two Miles Edition

1 - I ran two miles today. Tomorrow would have marked two weeks since my last run. I decided to try two miles today and move up to three miles tomorrow if everything felt good. And everything felt good. While I've learned to appreciate the bike a little more in the past two weeks, there is nothing like a run. I am looking forward to three miles tomorrow, and then I will evaluate how far to run on Saturday.

2 - Your comments, suggestions and encouragement were AMAZING and exactly what I needed to get my shin pain gone, gone, gone. Lots of shin/calf strengthening and some rockin' new compression leg sleeves have really helped things get back to normal. My goal for the next 85 days is to train smart and stay healthy.

3 - I went without Internet for almost a week AGAIN. They finally came and fixed it this morning. If I haven't stopped by your blog lately, that is why. I have missed so much and can't wait to read about all the running done over the holiday weekend!


RUN: The Princess has been telling everyone she is a runner lately. She got some new gymnastics clothes that she specifically chose because they look like things I wear running. The other day, she put on her "running clothes" and had me say "ready, set, go runner" over and over again as she ran up and down the sidewalk.

  1. That is a GREAT picture. Gotta love it when the kids pick up your good habits. I know I've gotten in trouble when they've picked up some of my less-desirable habits/language.

    Glad that your shins are doing well. Definitely hoping you can stay healthy.

  8. Just found your blog! Great job on your recent 2 miles. I hope your next run goes well for you too. I read you had been having some shin pain?

    I loved the little story of your "princess." I have three little girls that love to mimic their mom running.

Social Media: Some good, a lot of bad, and way too much ugly

There are a lot of good things that come from social media. We can connect with people we have lost touch with. We can unite as a group (runners!!) with a comment interest. We can promote a good cause. Sadly though, what social media does best is makes us feel bad about ourselves and makes us feel negatively towards others. This isn't just my opinion, although I can unquestionably support the truth behind this based on my own experience. I have spent way too much time feeling bad about myself as a result of comparing myself to others based on their Instagram or Facebook versions of themselves. And there are several people I have started feeling negatively about or have become completely annoyed with because of their IG and FB posts. It isn't just me though. There are actual studies that can back me up on the negative impact social media can have. I have read dozens of articles reviewing many different studies that show the overwhelmingly negative (vs. positive) effec

Carpet Burn On My Butt (and a giveaway)

After two lame, pathetic, lackluster weeks of running, I woke up excited to run yesterday. And today, I wore my running clothes all morning in anticipation of my nap time run today. Even in spite of sore glutes and tired quads from getting in some P90X Core Synergistics last night, I couldn't wait to get moving on Millie. I am a planner. Today I had a plan to get my run in while my girls slept, and my day was organized accordingly. I am also a creature of habit. The first thing I do when I roll out of bed every single day is make my bed and my girls' beds. If I do something else first, it throws off the entire morning. I am a creature of habit when it comes to my running routines as well. There are a few things that differ depending on whether I am running on Millie or outside, whether my girls are asleep or not, and whether or not they are joining me in the jogger. Yet, no matter when, where, how far or with whom I run, some things are always the same. My hair goes into a pon

Raindrops on roses...not so much

I ran 15 miles on Saturday and a barefoot mile today (in addition to four in shoes), but why talk about those things when I can share some of my favorite random things, thanks to Rachelle tagging me! Favorite Thing to Photograph My girls (although I actually didn't take this picture) Favorite Thing to Cook Cupcakes, cookies, brownies. I'm all about the baked goods, mostly because they are my favorite thing to EAT. Favorite Way to Exercise Running, of course Favorite Movie I love movies and have a lot of favorites, but this has been a constant on my list. Favorite Article of Clothing I was going to say jeans, because I could wear jeans every single day. But I could survive without wearing jeans for a week. I couldn't survive without my running shoes for a week. Favorite Flower Tulips Favorite Breakfast French toast! Favorite Cartoon Character I love Rapunzel and Flynn and Belle and the frog in Gnomeo and Juliet. I could probably list about 20
