First things first. When I started this blog in April I didn’t think too many people would be reading it. And to be quite honest I didn’t know how long it would last. But I’m a little more than four months in and really enjoying having my own little corner of the internet. What caused this idea of reflection you may ask – well it was the fact that I am now over 100 subscribed followers. Really? 103 to be exact. Sometimes it’s hard for me to believe that that many people read this. My blog has turned into an incredibly positive space for me, and I’m so happy that some of you find what I have to say interesting. I know my parents don’t. Because neither of them read here. Fact. But I still love them anyways.
I also wanted to give Susie a shoutout. She has so kindly reached out to me and asked me to share some of my writings on ilovetorun. My first article went up Tuesday afternoon and I felt somewhat famous. Which meant I needed to share with the entire internet world.
Now, onto all the randomness that is in my brain. Thank you Amanda for letting me spew a bunch of randomness out onto the internets.
My boyfriend had some pretty intense shoulder surgery yesterday. Five hours, two screws and a bone graft later he is all put back together. I’m sure he feels a bit like a pin cushion, but I’m so happy that his shoulder is fixed and he’s on the way to recovery.
Colonoscopy is happening / happened this morning. Yesterdays fast wasn’t too horrible… until 4PM. Then I swear I had spidey senses and as soon as anyone took any form of food out of the kitchen at work, I could smell it. Needless to say I could barely fall asleep due to the grumbles in my stomach. Another reminder that I never, ever, exaggerate.
There’s really not picture I can post after that paragraph so…
Holy long weekend. I am so excited for an extra day off. I need this. I almost feel a bit horrible saying that because I really enjoy my job, but at the same time, I also really like not having to work. With BF in a sling, I’m looking forward to lots of naps, TV binges, movie marathons, and hopefully some time at the beach (me not him – since I don’t think sand in a sling would be all that great).
Is it weird that I’ve already started thinking about what to put on my Christmas list? No? Let’s hope not because I already started one. I feel like the older I get the more picky I get with items I want. Or maybe it’s that now I just realize how much I desperately need something so I need to make sure it’s on my list because forgetting about it would be an absolute travesty. Just when you thought talk of all things Fall was bad, here I am jumping ahead to winter.
September 14th is Boston 2016 registration. Say what? I feel like I JUST finished running this race. How in the world is it time to register again. I’m super excited and can’t wait to be back. Hopefully more sun, less wind. That would be nice.
Speaking of running, mid-distance mid-week runs are back. I ran my first double digit mid-week run Wednesday and I felt pretty good about it. I’m trying to increase weekly milage, decrease running days and increase cross-training days while still respecting that whole thing called “rest“. We’ll see how it goes.
And that’s pretty much all I have as of right now. It’s been a whirlwind week at work but my personal life seems to be calming down a bit. Although we celebrated last weekend, BFs and my official anniversary is actually this Sunday. I can’t believe how fast two years has gone by. Here’s to another.
Have a fabulous weekend everyone! xo
Anyone else registering for Boston 2016?
Fun plans for the long weekend?
When is it socially acceptable to start a Christmas list?
