Short, Unrelated Thoughts, and HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

Weekly Race Shout-Outs.

Erika is crossing the crazy looking Coronado Bridge in her Bay Bridge race.  Don’t look down!

It seems like after a couple of race crazy weeks, things have slowed down, unless I’m just completely overlooking people?  Good luck if you’re running!

It also seems like blogging activity has gone down, not just for me, but for everyone.  I know I’m having a hard time focusing long enough to sit down and bust one out.  The problem with having a running blog? When you aren’t doing anything exciting run-wise, what on earth do you have to talk about?  I’ve already determined through the Have Fun Everyday Challenge that I’m the most boring person alive.  I did accidentally make my coffee too strong this morning, but that hardly seems blog worthy, though it may explain the erratic nature of the following paragraphs?

Danielle even tried to help by providing a prompt to talk about my 7 favorite things of the moment (which I WILL finish, I promise, Danielle!), but my current lack of motivation to write something interesting is only rivaled by my lack of motivation to do dishes.  I’d rather clean toilets than wash dishes.  YUCK.

Also, notice how I write a blog post about not having anything to blog about.  CLEVER!

I also realized this afternoon that my head was in some weirdo bubble on Tuesday when writing my Run for the Zoo race recap.  I was thinking my half marathon time on Sunday was a full 20 seconds faster than my miserable race two weeks ago.  Turns out it was only SIX SECONDS faster.  Even bigger bummer. But, I am going to stop whining about it because 1) I think I’m getting annoying and 2) it’s not like I trained for it.  I need to get over my belief that I can have the same result whether I train or not, because it just doesn’t work that way!

I have run exactly 1 mile since Sunday plus some sprints yesterday (my little tiny Giuseppe pretty much left me in the dust).  I’m trying to fully enjoy 3 weeks of not having to run before the craziness starts in a few weeks.  I am however being subjected to evil Aaron boot camp torture again.  We just acquired some new weights.  No, I can’t pick up the big ones in case you’re wondering.

Sometimes it is easy to forget that the ability to run 13.1 miles is not a  guarantee that you can do 15 jack-knifes in a row.  Those suckers are rough.

In other news, Sunday is Mother’s Day (hoping that this isn’t a surprise to anyone).

Both Aaron and I are blessed to have wonderful, loving, strong mothers who have dedicated their lives to making us successful people.

We’re also lucky to have both moms in town, so Sunday will be a full day of mom-spoiling.

Friend Amity is celebrating her first Mother’s Day with her two-week old little girl, and friend Katie is crazy close to delivering her little girl.  Happy First Mother’s Day, Ladies!

And Happy Mother’s Day to all the other hot mamas out there including some of my favorite blog friends: Erika, Adri, Laura, and Martha.  I hope you are all sufficiently spoiled this weekend! Also, Martha recently wrote a wonderful Mother’s Day article featured in Genius Moms!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

  1. Thanks for the sweet blog love!!!!!!

    BTW… that photo with your mom and grandmother is amazing! I always get misty when I see generational pictures like that! A framer for sure!

    • Absolutely! Congrats on getting that article published!

      And thank you! I think it was the last one taken of all three of us before my sweet grandmother died, so it makes me pretty misty too!

  2. You are technically a mommy, too! At least I believe that our pets are our furbabies!! 🙂
    Thanks for the love! I totally feel you when it comes to writing posts! The miles I’ve logged since Ragnar are downright pathetic. So I don’t feel like I’ve post much on writing lately! Oh well, peaks and valleys.

    • Haha! My puppy is definitely treated like a child!

      And glad I’m not the only one who is in a blogging valley! Hopefully you’ll actually get to do your race this weekend, so you’ll have something to talk about!
