Maybe this is why I blog (5 years today!) AND running shoes GIVEAWAY!

October 19, 2015

Please note this was written at 4 a.m. so it might be especially random… But first… my favorite picture of Brooke. Sometimes I wonder why this blog has stuck for FIVE YEARS (3,134 posts) and why it gets the traffic it does.  I make as many grammatical errors as a 4th grader, my pictures are usually poorly lit and from my iPhone.  Most posts include so many random tangents that I get confused reading over them myself, I don’t know […]

Google searches that brought people to my blog.

October 30, 2014

Google searches that brought people here and my replies: “Hungry Runner Girl Sister’s Arms” -It is ridiculous, she is 6 months pregnant and still has perfectly ripped arms. “How to run without getting tired?” -The second you find the answer to this question please email me asap. “Images of women that are 2 weeks pregnant” Here you go: “What happened to Hungry Runner Girl’s marriage?” -It exploded. “Dunkaroo” -Thanks a lot… now I can’t get the idea of a delicious […]

My next marathon is in about 3 weeks.  This will be my second marathon of the year and so it feels like this year there have been a lot of long runs and side effects from marathon training.  My 26.2 side effects of marathon training. 1.  You take your night-before-a-long-run meal very seriously.  Thanks Megan for going with me to Which Wich for some good carbs and protein.      2.  You do weird things like set your alarm clock […]

I have 1,000,000 thoughts about today and I don’t really even know where to start but I do have one really important thing to say. Thanks Sissy. I saw her at mile 20.5 and just hugged her and cried for at least a minute telling her how I couldn’t finish (not because of my injury but for a few things I will tell you about later). She looked at me and then said, ‘Let’s do this.’ She ran from 20.5-26.2 […]

Would I do it all over again or skip over the hard part?

I had a really good discussion over a large ice cream sundae with Sarah (while I was in Thailand last month) about the last 6 years of my life and she asked me, “If you had the choice…  Would you do it all over again or choose to skip over the the hardest time of your whole life?” What did I learn?  How did I grow?  Were the lessons and growth worth the pain?  I have thought about it like crazy […]
