At least it didn’t take me this long to cross the finish line

So, I ran a little marathon about a month and a half ago. And I have not forgotten about writing about it. I have been putting it off because I’ve felt really busy and like I don’t have the time to devote to it that I need. And I was hoping to get Jeff’s photos…

Buying a bathing suit at Target while drunk

So, I had the opportunity to attend another beer festival this past weekend in Rock Hill. This comes only two weeks after the festival in Athens that Chris took me to. I was super-stoked about this one – it was called “Mountain Jam Brew Fest” and it was advertised that people should bring tents to…

Things I want to talk about

= Buying a bathing suit at Target while drunk at 5 pm on a Sunday; = Cycling rules/laws I’ve learned/want to confirm; = Brewfest in Rock Hill that boasted a climbing wall (does that seem like a good combo to you?); = Running a 5K while stressed; = Cycling the route of the triathlon that…

Discouraged

I just ran 4 miles. It was harder than it should have been. All my runs lately are harder than they should be. Running partners, I need you. You haven’t seen me lately. Don’t let me get away with it. Make me run with you. Make me run with you a lot.

You know it’s a great day when you get free shoes …

Ok, I know I have written about my favorite running store, TrySports, only about half a million times on here. Every time I go in there they find some way to amaze me. I have written before about how great they are at fitting people for shoes. They really listen to what you have to…

I did it! I rode my bike! And I ran 18 miles – all in one weekend!

Recently I picked up a new bike from REI. And then I tried to ride it. And that was very, very difficult, as you can read about here. Seeing as how I have a little race to run in 33 days, I figured safe is better than sorry. So I had Jeff take off my…

On running buddies

Running friends are invaluable. When I first started running, sometimes the only reason I would even get out there would be because it’d be rude to cancel on the friend waiting for me. I knew this about myself so I was constantly begging people to run with me to keep me on track. Somewhere along…

An end of an era

Today, I will admit I am a bit sad. One of my closest friends, my partner in crime on many occasions, is stopping by my house to pick up some of her things before she moves to Cincinnati this weekend. Things she left during craft days and bicycle days and writing days and painting days.…

I’m dog people

But for some reason I have seen this rise in my friendships of late, male friendships to be exact, with cat people. How does this happen? I didn’t know men even liked cats, much less single men who live alone with them … Ronnie has an excuse; he and his ex-wife got the cats together…

What happens in the middle of the woods at 1 a.m.?

Kevin and I hiked the Black Mountain Trail at Mount Mitchell last year. His goal was to hike the trail during winter. However, we ended up going the first day of spring – a fact that Jeff has never let us forget (although he and Ronnie bailed at the last minute last year; so what if Jeff…
