I don't think I could ever stab someone...

I've had some good runs this week. Yesterday it snowed, which automatically makes for a happy run. But it wasn't easy. The first three (of ten) miles were all uphill because I decided I would benefit more from hills than speed this week. I knew my body could do the one but not the other. The second half of the run was in the snow which was super fantastic when it was blowing sideways or pushing me. But when I turned and had to run the last 2+ miles directly into a strong wind, blowing snow straight into my face, it made things a little tougher. But it was still a good run. Just hard.

Today's five miles were nice and easy. I feel like I could run five miles every day and never get tired. But I also wouldn't be ready for a marathon in 47 days, so five milers are saved for my easy days.

And because Wednesday just seems like a good day for some funny things to help get us through the rest of the week, here are some things that made me smile:

I just updated my resume. Your turn.



 I consider myself fairly successful. But it will continue to perfect this effort.




You know how I feel about spelling and grammar errors...



My world would be SUPER creepy for sure.



Have a good life, hair ties.

  3. Dang it! I totally was planning on winking at you during lunch today. All creepy like too.

    I need to heed Mark Twain's advice.

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

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
