Fun Facts Friday - Sometimes

Evening Run
After work yesterday, Jason and I got in a run. The weather was beautiful (about 68 degrees and sunny), though insanely windy. The one good thing about running around the 'hood vs down by the river, however, is that you don't have head winds for half of a run. Just bits and pieces. Also, the wind helped keep me from feeling like I was overheating.

We basically meandered and zigzagged our way through the neighborhood. There was no set plan other than to get in 7 miles. But, we fell into a really good, fairly quick pace and were able to maintain an overall 8:49. And even better...it didn't feel like a crazy hard struggle.

Luckily, I had tons of leftovers from a refrigerator special kind of dinner I made Sunday night. So leftovers it was for the evening. Perfect for a late dinner and easy clean up too ;-)

Fun Facts Friday - Sometimes
I am wondering if I should change Fun Facts Friday to Fun FOR Friday. It's not always facts, but...you get the picture. This one might be kind of a strange one, but I realized that sometimes I think about certain things, wish for certain things, act a certain way...well, ok random. But sometimes, just sometimes you want, wish, dream, think, feel.

Sometimes I...
  • Randomly crave a soda. It's very rare. I can't even recall the last time I had one. But sometimes I just want one. Luckily we don't keep them on hand. 
  • Get really really down for seemingly no reason. Thankfully it can often pass as quickly as it comes on. 
  • Don't want to workout any more. I think how much time I'd have freed up. But then I remember how it makes me feel and know that's not an option.
  • Just want to eat whatever I want and not give a care - fried pickles, fried cheese, large pizza, bag of Cheetos and maybe all at the same time even. 
  • Wish I didn't want to run so badly - I mean, it'd make it so much easier to get over injuries if I just didn't care.
  • Think I care far too much and put way more effort into friendships than I should. Maybe I should re-phrase and say with the wrong "friends."
  • Want to just totally let loose and not have a care in the world.
  • Say really stupid things. It's like I open my mouth and what comes out is not at all what's in my head.
  • Love staying home and never changing out of PJs, not having to mess with hair or makeup. 
  • Can just laugh for no reason at all. Just get tickled. 
  • Get really nervous before I go out for a run.
  • Wonder why on earth so many people are out driving at 5:30 am. Not that they probably aren't wondering what the hell I'm doing out running at that ungodly hour. 
  • Get irrationally angry when I have to stand at an intersection waiting on traffic too long. I mean, can't they move it along or perhaps stop and let me run??
So, what are your "sometimes"?

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon. The support and words mean so much to me.

My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on.

I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear.
But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well these days…

PJs n Pizza Recap

What Happened Last Night?
This morning I woke up first at 6:20 when Maddie decided she wanted out of her kennel and to be downstairs. The second time was 8:09 when Heath decided he wanted out of his kennel and downstairs to eat. I won't like, I would like to (needed to) have slept another two hours. It was a little slow going after last night.

Sign of a good party would be my first tweet of the day:  I'm thinking there is a bird in the house...what the hell happened last night???

Yep, found bird poop where bird poop most definitely should not be. Still have not found said bird however.

It should go without saying that last night was a total blast. It was so fun having everyone just be relaxed and comfy in jammies. I am not known for letting loose often, but I definitely went with it last night. There was a bit (lot) of wine consumed, pizza devoured and even some dancing.












Let's Have Coffee

If you're a regular blog reader, I'm sure you've seen similar posts, scenarios if you will, about what we might chat about or what I might say if we sat down and had coffee together.

I think these can be fun. Maybe fun isn't the right word choice exactly. But maybe it is? They're transparent, showing who the blogger really is ... if they're being honest of course. It's not often you truly get to sit down with the person behind the blog.


If we were to have coffee together ...

I would first let you know that I'm not a super fan of coffee. I drink mine with hot cocoa and it's mostly out of habit rather than the need for caffeine. I could forgo it on the weekends entirely.

Since we're talking coffee, I would also let you know that I've never ordered coffee from Starbucks and only once from a true coffee shop. I've only been into 2 Starbucks shops - the original in Seattle and one in town where I ordered a bottle of tea when meeting a friend. …
