The Breakup

Running said we need some time apart. Things just weren't working out. Running said it was just a "break," not forever. As I tearfully said my goodbyes, I tried to remind myself that it would get better. Distance (get it?) makes the heart grow fonder.
Well it has been ten days and I have not heard a single WORD from running. I cannot help but think WTF?! Which stands for "William. Tom. Frank." in case you were wondering. We all know I gave up cussing. And running apparently.
I was still able to log fourteen miles of "fitness" this past week. I really can't complain too much. I got try out my new snowshoes in feet of fresh powder. I know. It's a hardknock life.
I'm pretty excited for this week. Ty's family is coming over for our first official "family dinner/Idol night" on Wednesday. I'm making lasagna. And in my opinion, the lasagna alone is reason to be excited.
Speaking of American Idol, who are everyone's favorites? I like Phillip Phillips, Elise, and Colton.

I had one of those perfect Sundays yesterday. I went to church Saturday night, so I had the entire day free to do nothing or everything. Ty was sleeping after working all night.
Woke up at 10:30.
3 miles of walking with the dogs. Discovered a new mental trick-- "Be here now." Mantra adopted from Another Mother Runner's podcast. In other words, stop wishing the workout away. Enjoy that moment of time and think of nothing else. Even if you can only think of taking three more steps. Take those three steps-- See what happens.
Washed and waxed the car.
Went to coffee shop- spent an hour indulging in more coffee and a giant muffin while reading my Bible/having quiet time.
Grocery shopping (one of my most favorite activities)
Family dinner.
 One of my favorite bloggers, Hungry Runner Girl has some exciting news: baby's on the way. Congrats Janae and Billy!


  1. You may not be running, but you sure are getting in some good cross training. Trekking through the snow is not easy. You are keeping your endurance up.

    1. Its true. I have a new appreciation for the pool. Maybe I'll tackle a tri when this is all said and done.

  2. That does sound like a perfect way to spend a Sunday!

  3. OOh this just made me laugh. Very creative. Sorry about the little breakup.........what a jerk, that running guy. The nerve!
