Three Things Thursday

  1. I am going to Hawaii. In 30 days. For a week.
  2. After using my fancy new Olay anti-aging eye roller for the past two weeks, I still don’t look 25. I pretty much look the same as I did two weeks ago.
  3. My big toe, which has been numb since my foot surgery 11 months ago, just decided to come back to the land of the feeling, one spot at a time. It feels like there is something in my sock under my toe while I am running.
Have a happy Friday and a great weekend. Run happy!


  1. I didn't know you were going to Hawaii...have a GREAT time!!! Are your girls going or is Mom watching them?
    Hope you can run 3 miles tomorrow instead of just 2. Love ya!

  2. Hawaii? Oh, I am so jealous! I'm sure you look gorgeous regardless of how the roller works. And welcome back, Big Toe! :D

  3. You are doing the iron man?
    You are entered in the Hula championships?
    How is this fair?
    I want to go to Hawaii

  4. Hawaii!! Jealous! Think of the runs you can do there.

  5. Hawaii!! Awesome! Hello, big toe!

  6. Aww hawaii! So lucky!! I have not tried that Olay stuff but seriously they basically say in those commercials that you will see dramatic differences in two weeks!!

  7. Hawaii sounds awesome! Have fun!

    Glad to hear that your toe is coming back to life!

  8. HAWAII??? Are you just trying to make us jealous??? Amazing. Who needs on Olay eye roller when you're going to Hawaii??

  9. Darn eye rollers!!! Why don't they just do their job!? :-)

  10. Feels like you have something in your sock under your toe? That would drive me absolutely bonkers!

    So jealous that you will be logging runs in Hawaii! I've never been.

    And by the way, you already look younger than 25. I've seen the pics. :)

  11. Hawaii sounds great! How fun! I'm glad that the feeling is coming back into your foot.

  12. It sounds like improvements with your foot. That's great! Hope you get in a long of good running in Hawaii!

  13. If you're heading to Maui I can point you towards some good running spots and hikes. Have fun!

  14. Hawaii Sweet!!!I just found your blog!!!stop by

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 pony

I wasn't sure going in...

Yep, I'm checking in. Why? Because I did something completely out of my comfort zone that I wanted to share with you. Last week I went to a place near Salt Lake called Dexa Body, where I got a DEXA Scan. For those unfamiliar with what that is, I asked Google to help us out:  "Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry  ( DXA , previously  DEXA ) is a means of measuring  bone mineral density  (BMD). Two  X-ray  beams, with different  energy levels , are aimed at the patient's  bones . When  soft tissue   absorption is subtracted out, the  bone mineral density  (BMD) can be determined from the absorption of each beam by bone. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is the most widely used and most thoroughly studied bone density measurement technology." Since that is pretty medical sounding, here's my take. A DEXA Scan is a tool to measure your total body composition. It specifically breaks down the regional composition of your lean and fat tissue. It gives a fat distribution

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
