The Evening News - Runnerd Style

Someone tell me how it is already Wednesday. Sadly though, I'm ready for Thursday. Today has been a long day. But at least I get to finish off the day with game one of the World Series.

We are pretty big Giants fans around here. My girls even recognize Tim Lincecum, Buster Posey and Brian Wilson when they see them. Need more proof?


Our bookshelf, filing cabinet and the top of my desk

So needless to say, Go Giants!

Now that sports is over, lets move onto weather. The weather has turned cold and rainy here. I had an amazing 6-mile run on Monday and enjoyed every minute of the gray, overcast morning. Then I ran at 4 pm yesterday. 4 PM people!! And I had to wear my gloves.

I couldn't be happier. I LOVE running in the cold. However, it's making my decision whether or not to wear a costume for the Halloween Half Marathon on Saturday more difficult .

And last but not least, we have politics. I stole this from Emz on Instagram.


If you haven't read her Rim 2 Rim 2 Rim race recap, go now. It is worth every word, mile and emotion within it.

  1. As I slip inexorably towards another stinking hot summer I'm filled with jealousy about being able to run at 4 pm. I was up at 4:45am this morning to get out there before it got too warm. I'll be writing 'green with envy' comments for the next 4 or 5 months.

  2. I'm with you, I don't mind the cold because I seem to be able to run pretty well in colder weather, but this cold... wet... thing we've got going here in the valley is just a bit to much. Looks like we're in for a hard, cold winter. Good luck on your Half on Saturday.

  3. I sure do like the cooler weather. It's much easier to ADD clothing! I'm doing a half on Saturday too. I wish we were doing the same one! Can't wait to see your costume selection!

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

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

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
