Sprinkles, Pirates and Getting Ripped

Okay first thing – I got a promotion at work, YAY. What’s sad is I think I was almost more excited to go out for celebratory fro-yo with Jonah that evening than about my new title. I should probably quick my day job and work for TCBY or Silk because I am obsessed with their dark chocolate almond fro-yo.

Second thing – It’s Talk Like a Pirate Day and my office is super fun so we all dressed up like pirates and went to Krispie Kreme to get free donuts (not that I could eat them- being all gluten filled- but I had fun going anyways)

PLUS I’ll take any excuse to wear those red pants to work.

Was told I could be a model for Krispie Kreme…not sure what that says about me…

Third thing – Today on the run schedule I had 3 miles and strength. Around mile 2 I ran into a snag in my usual short loop –  there was all this new construction and the side walk closed in multiple directions…so I kinda had a melt down right in the middle of my run because I didn’t know where to go. I’m kind of a planner and like to stick to routines, so this mid run surprise was not really welcome. I got through and made it to the gym to do some lifting- which went a lot better. I’m really enjoying lifting more, I definitely can feel a difference in my running because of the additional strength training. I’m glad I was the only one in my apartment’s gym today though because I was totally making awkward grunting noises at one point. GET RIPPED, GET FAST. (just kidding I’m really not intense enough to say that)


Does your work celebrate fun holidays? Did you go get free donuts at Krispie Kreme today for Talk Like a Pirate day?

Do little hiccups like road closures mess with your runs?

Do you go into beast mode at the gym? awkward noises?

Pile on the Miles

13.1 miles. Am I crazy? I grew up a mid distance runner, no high mileage weeks for this girl.

What’s even crazier is the fact that I’m liking the mileage. Running longer distances gives me a satisfaction that shorter runs and work outs never gave me. I have time to focus on myself and my run.

That being said, running longer distances has not only made me crazy, but also made me a selfish runner. I feel the need to run everyday to get that time to myself, and I want to run further every time. I feel that the further I run, the better I understand myself; as person and a runner.  Running is something so completely about me and personal to me – I need that. It’s my daily therapy.

oh…and I run so I can eat this all the time:

So bring it on 13.1 – pile on those miles.
