muscle soreness is ruling my life

so here we are: 6 months away from the marathon. whaat! that shit cray!
it hit me this AM that im really running a marathon. like, really running one. not thinking about it, not sorta talking about how cool it would be. no! actually fucking running a marathon. i think im going to be sick.

no, just kidding. im actually super psyched about it. there has just been one tiny issue, and by tiny i mean huge pain in my ass. muscle soreness. i mean crazy, over the top, really inflamed muscle soreness. i can feel the inflammation on my legs. eek!!

as a means to survive the soreness ive been absolutely bathing my legs in icy hot. yea, i smell awesome. im also trying to roll out the muscles with my roller and going to bed with heat pads on my legs. just in case you forgot, cause i did, im 28. jesus!!

anyway, freaking out a little. a marathon! yikes!!

yea, the soreness sucks, but thats your muscles tearing and then rebuilding to be able to run faster and stronger! You will be great next fall, but in the meantime, hope they feel better :)

Ok, I’ve never actually gone apple picking. I’ve dreamed about it. Glanced at pictures of it. Hoped I would do it. Friends never seemed to want to go – and the boyfriend thing has been a fleeting item on the to-do list. Well, its happening this weekend! Sunday. Sinuses, weather, and whatever else, keep it together. This girl wants to go apple picking! 
Fall sixteen has already gotten off to a busy – and celebratory – start. Mom and bill got married (!!!) which made me really emotional and nostalgic. It was a beautiful weekend and definitely cemented how much I want a love of my own. Been a tough go though – I mean, its supposed to …

2013: a year in review. so far

today is february 22nd.we are already almost 2/12 of the way through 2013. i realize that line may sound uber cheesy, but seriously, time fucking flies.


2013 has definitely been a cool year. hard, confusing, sad and stressful, but certainly cool. parts of it have also been special, funny, amazing and sweet. all of that emotion in 2 months? hey man, im a girl. were dramtaic.



ive got high hopes for the rest of the year. there are a few running races in the books, with more to be added im sure. there will be some travel...im heading to see my besties in chicago and boston and bro in NC to name a few. im hoping there is a trip to somewhere warm in the near future...i have no interest in resembling a vampire...that shit has been overexposed already.

the moment hasnt happened to me yet where i go to my bank account and theres an accidental million dollars. regardless i take my dads advice to heart..."hil, never miss an opportunity you really want simply because of money". look, i…
