To say I've lacked some mojo in the blogging department would be a severe understatement. I really love blogging. But, it's a hobby and in the day-to-day shuffle of life, it takes a back seat to other tasks that need to get done. I RUNFESS, I've been so lazy I can't wait to lay my head on my pillow at night and unplug. Or, just watch that hour of TV before I have to do the day all over again.
Let me re-explain lazy. By lazy I mean, I still get my ass out of bed at 4:45 am - four to five days a week to run. I work full time, do the heaps of laundry, make dinner ...... although sometimes dinner is PB & J. Hey - a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do right? What else... homework with my oldest - since WHEN does first grade have homework? Try to have some relationship with my spouse - who does his fair share if not MORE than I do with parenting. On a side note: I have THE BEST husband in the world!
I could keep going. The truth is, runners are multi-taskers. I think we can do more than the average bear and I'm sure many of you reading this are doing the EXACT same thing on a daily basis. The problem arises when we start to lose ourselves just a bit. We get so wrapped up in our daily life of go-here, go-there, do-this, do-that....there's little time for anything else. So, the blogging has taken a back seat. BOO! I'm working on a solution to keep the writing up, because I miss connecting with all of you on a regular basis.
I also RUNFESS, I get way jealous of everyone ELSE'S racing schedule. I have major medal envy. Below is a pick of my medal wall in my closet. It's feeling a little left out and not nearly heavy enough.
I do have a girls run-cation planned in two weeks and I'm over-the-moon excited. My husband and I don't get away much solo to be with friends, so this is extra exciting for me. I will check two states off my "been there ran that" board and add 3 medals! I'm getting there.
I also RUNFESS, my closet truly is 80-90% running gear and beer shirts! Hey, I like my craft beer and breweries make great shirts - what can I say? Most of my closet chaos is caused by my obsession with cute running clothes and also casual clothes I can wear everyday, all of which are running related. Yes, I'm aware... I have a problem. But in my defense, I am a dental hygienist. I wear scrubs everyday and I change at work. Who wants to get fancy just to change right away when you walk in the door?
But, seriously... could you pass up this shirt?
In no way was I paid to say this, or given this shirt. I just like supporting local businesses. If you want to check out more of what State of RUN has you can follow the link. They may have cute shirts for your state too! And, their shipping was amazingly FAST!
Ok, I feel better now. My goal for October is to be a better blogger! Have a great month everyone!
