you know you miss your dad when...

a miley cyrus movie can make you cry. here i was flipping channels last night and NOTHING was on. really, whats up with sunday night tv?! anyway, i saw "the last song" was on. ive heard i remind people a teensy bit of miley so i wanted to check it out. plus i kinda love her song "the climb" so i was sold.

holy shit. this may sound crazy naive (maybe i should have read the description of the movie) but i had no idea it was about her dad dying. yiiikes.

i cried. it was a good cry. but i cried. during a miley movie. it kinda made me want to have a boy love me that much too. not having dad here has been hitting me pretty hard lately. first, fathers day is coming up. his birthday is coming up. fun summer months are here. i have a crazy crush on a boy and id LOVE to talk to him about it.

its one of those things where the tears were there and i was holding them back for a while and all i needed was something as silly as a miley cyrus movie to help me let it go. its kind of a great feeling to tear up when youre alone watching a movie on a sunday night. its kinda peaceful. oddly refreshing. but im bummed guys. i really miss my buddy. he was simply the greatest.

summer OUT / fall IN

And just like that, summer sixteen is over. Hello fall! While I love nothing more than heading out for some miles in the kind of weather that makes it hard to breathe, makes you sweat more than you thought was humanly possible and leaves you a bit red in the face, I equally love the crispness of fall mornings, the smell of fall in the air and apple picking!
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…

break a sweat - even when youd rather do ANYTHING but.

there is only one way to begin the difficult journey of the holiday sugar detox: break a sweat. 

miraculously i didnt miss a day over the holidays to break a sweat -- but that really just means i got up extra early or ran when people were napping (i.e. full and feeling gross) so not all of my holiday miles or squats were pretty. or felt particular good.

BUT, i laced up and got out there -- or followed along to a dailyburn workout. i kept telling myself i could slow down or take it easier, but shit, im doing a workout.

so basically, what they say is true. no matter how slow you go, youre still lapping everyone on the couch. go get in a good sweat, then reward yourself with some couch time :)
