Ready or Not

I can't believe it has been so long since my last post. I haven't spent the past two weeks in a tropical paradise or on my near-death bed. I've just been hangin' with my girls, getting stuff done, living life. Blogging kind of got pushed to the bottom of my to-do list and is just now making its way back up. Someday I hope to be one of those bloggers who posts every day (even every other day would be an accomplishment for me), but for now I just do what I do. Anyhow, now that I finished Mockingjay and as long as I can withstand the temptation of all the returning fall TV shows, I plan to get back to blogging on (my version of) a regular basis. I have several posts floating around in my head, so that helps too! Maybe I should take a few weeks off more often.

And since this is a running blog, I should mention I have been running lately. I still don't feel ready to run a marathon one week from tomorrow, but ready or not, I am running.

I am looking forward to getting away for a day or two and adding another marathon to my list of accomplishments. I am also trying to stay focused on the positive. Things like:
  • Rediscovering the magic of KT Tape after struggling with a sore shin for the past few months.
  • Seeing the scale drop three pounds in the past few weeks without making a conscious effort. When does that ever happen??
  • Finding the perfect headband (more on that in another post).
  • Seeing a difference in my midsection after devoting myself to doing a core workout
    on a regular basis for the first time in my life.
  • The cooler fall temps for running and playing with my girls outside.

I hope you all find the positive in your day as well. Happy Friday and have a great weekend!!

RUN: Fall marathon madness is in full swing. Good luck to all those lining up at the starting line this weekend!


  1. You're ready. You did the training.

    Enjoy it!

  2. It seems like the weight loss happens when we aren't trying!

  3. I love you to mention Mockingjay. :)

  4. I live to be positive and love to hear others finding the positives in their lives as well. You'll be fine to run the marathon.

  5. When you figure out how you took 3 lbs. off without trying, can you tell me?

    Have a good taper week this week!

  6. I suppose if I was consistent with core I would see those positive results too. good job!

  7. I want my scale to drop 3 lbs!! Three pounds lost equates to about a minute and a half shaved off of a marathon finish time, and I need all the help I can get.

    Enjoy the last of the taper!

  8. In my book, hanging with the family can be just as rewarding as a tropical vacation, without the airport hassle.
    Plus, this cooler weather is just lovely sleeping weather.
    And how cool that you've strengthened your core AND dropped a few pounds? Both of which are guaranteed boosts for your marathon experience. Enjoy the taper!

  9. You're ready! I never feel ready for a race either. enjoy the last of taper days.
