I'm too tired to think of a title for this post

It's Friday and the start of Mother's Day weekend. Just when you thought it couldn't get any better than that, here's a bulleted list of the latest from moi:

  • It was great to see my name on the list of St. George Marathon runners today (even though I knew it would be there) after being so disappointed when I didn't get in last year.
  • I haven't been sleeping well lately. I am fine once I fall asleep, but it takes forever, some nights even a few hours, to actually fall asleep. Can't figure it out.
  • Did six miles on the mill yesterday: 2 easy, 2 @ 9:05, 2 easy. Total time: 57:10.
  • I was gonna post a giveaway today but the aforementioned lack of sleep is making me tired (lazy), so be sure to come back Monday for that. It is not a runner specific or gender specific giveaway so it is for anyone and everyone.
  • I have 10 miles on the schedule for tomorrow, and I am going to attempt the run with my girls in the double jogger. Pretty sure it will be interesting, but at least that will give me something to write about.
  • Check out Gone for a RUN on Facebook! They just put up their page today, so you can be cool like me and be one of the first to LIKE their page.

RUN: Until recently, I thought it was best to leave my (foot) calluses alone. Found out (in last month's Runner's World) they can actually lead to blisters. I'll be getting rid of my calluses this weekend in the form of a Mother's Day pedicure!


  1. Enjoy your pedi! Happy Mother's Day weekend!

  2. Thinking up blog titles are the worst! No worries. ;) Enjoy your pedicure! I love 'em.

  3. I love Runner's World for tips and educational things. Ped-eggs will get rid of calluses in one swoop- I highly recommend them!

  4. awww pedis are the best!!! Have a awesome run today and a fab Mothers day tomorrow :)

  5. Oooh pedi sounds nice, you deserve it!

    And good luck with the 10 w/the stroller! That's itnense!

  6. Hope you enjoyed that pedicure and had a great weekend!

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
