gross. Look! She's just so................


I don’t know what is wrong with me, I get all blog crazy then BAMM I hit a wall. This whole week has been a hot mess, I am super nervous for Saturday. Seriously I know it is only 7 miles, and that is a short run to many people. I don’t know why I can’t get out of my own head. My runs have not been that great either.

I want to be faster than I am. I know it is stupid, and I have really started to pick up some speed. Really though, should it be that HARD to run a nine minute mile? 

This is what I think about while I run…… how much it hurts (not really), how slow I am, eww everything is jiggling way too much. Mostly I am thinking to myself another damn hill!!!!!!

 Didn’t you know that it is pity Amanda day? I know if the biggest problems I have (not even close) to do with running then what’s the big deal. It’s just what I choose to focus on. I wasn’t going to blog about it but I couldn’t come up with anything better. Sorry for the crappy post.

The good news is that I am all packed, and my house is clean. I love coming home to a clean house. We are leaving tomorrow afternoon, it should be fun. Rain and thunder storms during the race, this will be new for me. 

My outfit is oh so very colorful because I only have a green short sleeve shirt and I am wearing purple underneath. I don’t think I am going to wear my running skirt because it is going to be chilly.  I am kind of worried about having gross race pictures. :(

Okay enough, I need to either go to bed or have a drink. Tomorrow’s a new day, right?



  1. For starters, go buy yourself a new green shirt and put some black leggings under your cute running skirt! No matter what your time, I'm cheering for you!

  2. You'll do awesome! No worries about the venting - it's what a blog is here for, right?!? I think everybody has those issues with their running. Everybody wants SOMETHING, whether it's a faster time, an easier time, or something else. I personally am annoyed at my double-digit mile times consistently. But I just hope that after a few months of speedwork, I'll start to see improvements. Hills set me off, too. I have started wearing a hat down low over my eyes when I run. This way, my gaze remains firm just in front of me, and I can't see a monster hill approaching until I'm on top of it. It helps sometimes to avoid psyching myself out!

    Good luck today!!!!
