its friday, i feel random

its been a long week. or at least its felt like one. im pretty psyched we have monday off...knowing we have a 4-day week next week makes me giggle a bit inside. because, per usual, im a bit tired from the week, ive got a few thoughts id like to share. enjoy :)

- if you dont drink coffee, how do you function? are you a vampire? are you real? for the same reason i dont fully trust people that dont like animals, i dont know that i fully trust people that dont drink caffeine.

- i dont care what you say, i like lance. no, i dont think hed be a good boyfriend or anything but hes a hell of a competitor and i admire that. oh, youre pissed he doped. im sorry, why do you give a fuck? did you give him money or something? if so, it went to livestrong so keep your panties on, hes fighting cancer you uptight asshole. oh, youre pissed he is like every other athlete that competes at his level? im sorry, youre naive. good luck going through life that way.

- post-marathon (and really, post-sickness) my love affair for the elliptical hasnt fully returned. ive been running more (woo! woo!). ive loosened up a bit on myself in regards to working out. dont get me wrong, i still hit it hard...daily or 2x daily if i can, but if i feel like cutting it short a few minutes in the AM or skipping a night workout i dont freak. what is that weird thing people speak of? oh yea, moderation :)

- in about 3 weeks the date will come where i honor my dad being gone for 5 years. can i just say its been the weirdest thing for me to come to terms with. i mean hes been gone for 5 years! just unacceptable :) all i can hope for is that he hears my prayers and is looking down on me smiling, proud of the woman i have become.

alright, i think thats enough for now. TGIF. no really, thank GOD! im heading home to lanc this weekend so heres to hopefully getting a lot of sleep, taking a lot of bodypump and eating great food. aaaand im super excited about getting some cuddle time in with my moms kitties.

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 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 :)
