Starting Over...Again

It seems like I start over a lot. I get in a great running groove and then get burnt out and end up taking off a day...which turns into a week...then turns into 2 weeks. This makes me not want to blog, because I feel bad that I take so much time off! Maybe if I blogged more, it might make me feel like I should run more.

 After my race, I fell into a rut. I think I was disappointed that I didn't do my best at the race, and it got me down.  So down that I didn't run for almost a week. Then I went out a ran/walked a couple of miles and then ended up taking another week off, ran/walked another couple of miles, then took ANOTHER week off! It was pathetic. Now I did go out of town for two weeks in there, but I had absolutely no excuse not to run while gone. I was staying at my parents and they would have gladly watched Sophie. And they did the ONE time I ran. But, I just didn't feel like it the rest of the time. I've been home since last friday night and decided I would start over...again...this week. I have done pretty good so far! :) I ran 3.5 miles on Tuesday, 2 miles Wednesday, and then I walked a mile this morning. The weather looked bad and it was so windy that I didn't want to stay out long for Sophie. But I at least needed to do something, so a mile it was! :) I'm going to try to run/walk at least 6 days a week, with Sunday being my off day since I go to church. I need to make this a habit and I think this is the only way I can do it! I have to make myself do "something" almost everyday! I will TRY to keep blogging about it and let you know how the "habit" is coming along! 

I do keep up with my Facebook page and I try to at least update Twitter with my workouts as well. Follow me on those 2 things to really keep up with me! :)

If you already follow me on those 2 things, then you know that I just won a pair of Vibrams from this awesome page called My Five Fingers! :) I'm trying to decide which one's to get, but it will probably end up being these:

I like the colors, and the laces intrigue me! lol
Plus they are almost completely different than the TrekSports that I already have.

The other option I was thinking of were these:

I think they are cute and they are meant for fitness,  after exercise or traveling.
They look comfy, but I think I want to try out a different pair of running one's instead.
Decisions, decisions!

I'll post a pic of my new shoes when I get them!!!
Until then...


  1. Hi! Just found your blog and I was so happy to see someone else who live Vibram Fivefingers! I too and just getting started running, although I used to do it 25 years ago. I just never envisioned how much harder it is at age 50! God bless you as you work towards fitness and the "new you!"

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful! We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do! It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option. We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :) And that's not all of the big news! I

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :) I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love... My BOB Revolution SE ! I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here ! :) My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces ! They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes! I love their moto! Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray. In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver . Th
