He said “smile”

Would you laugh if I told you I was in so much pain yesterday that I asked Mike if he could pee for me?

If you said yes, you are truly my friends.

This is not the face of happiness.

Yesterday I couldn’t  walk. Okay I did but it was a very slow penguin shuffle and I swear I saw a turtle speed past me, he was fast. But a belly full of coffee kinda made things a little better. Hey, when does it not.

My podiatrist appointment…yeah about that…we are still trying to get a true diagnosis. I was placed on medical leave for 6 weeks from work and pretty much all things fun in life. An MRI is in in the works so hopefully we’ll have more information soon.

The good news is today I’m feeling a little better. I might even make it to play bingo this evening. Winking smile

After a frustrating appointment I asked Mike to take me for a drive down to my favorite streets. He happily did and that my friends, is true love.

When we get rich one day, I will be buying a home on this street.

I asked Mike if we could move to Carmel. The only problem is that it’s so expensive we would need donations. Oh and you can’t have grass and I have a thing for grass.

Anyone running the Rock N Roll Seattle race this weekend? Stuft Mama and Pavement Runner are doing a Pro Compression tweet up. If you want to join in on the fun, meet at 3:00pm at the Pro Compression booth at the ‪#‎RnRSEA‬ expo.

If you could buy a second home anywhere, where would it be? Give me all the deets!

Tell me something positive and fun you are doing.

I’m thinking about doing another video/vlog whatever the cool kids call it. Any topic suggestions or do you just want to see Bam chew his butt?

  1. U r amazing! And Mike sounds like the best husband! Glad u r a little better today:) I think u have seen my comments before: I would live anywhere in Cali if I could! Someday I hope! Something fun and positive I’m doing is: training for a 5K! God I hope I don’t make a fool of myself!

    • Good luck on your race! You will do wonderful. And yes, I have no idea what I’d do without that boy. Please don’t tell him I said that. 😉
      When I get rich, I will fly you out to Cali and put you up in our mansion on the Pacific, deal?

  2. Getting to know you, even through this blog, having you ask mike to pee for you sounds about right.

    You know being from hawaii, you would think I would say back home on the north shore of Haleiwa. But my wife and I was seriously thinking about San Diego, Mission beach. It’s our go to in the summer time for the last 13 years. We end up renting…the housing market is so crazy over there and it’s almost a gold mine if you have a beach house in that area (not if, but) when you can rent it out. The other place that I keep suggesting to my wife is Hokkaido/Furano-shi, Japan. Love love love that place. I love the japanese people, living, all the positive things about life – but in Furano-shi, I love love the snow!

    Tomorrow, I get to take a rest day. My family and I are going to do our monthly “Feed the Starving children” volunteer work. That’s always cool to give back!

    Vlog! yes! Although it would be cool to see Bam nom nom nom on his okole, how about something different than a ‘vlog’? You are always showing us still shots of your hood. How bout letting us see and hear the wave crashing (go ahead, make me miss home)… how ’bout a stroll through the ol’ town, or even you guys chomping on that bacon cheeseburger!!!

    • Dude, you and Mike would get along just fine. He LOVES Japan and talks about it all the time. He was spent a lot of time there while he was stationed in the Navy.
      We’ll have to see about that vlog suggestion…but it would probably get put on the blacklist on You Tube for being offensive. 😉

  3. Awww I’m sorry you aren’t feeling well! I hope the pain eases some for you. Today I ran 7 and tomorrow is a rest day. We are going to a concert though so it should be a lot of fun!

  4. I’m with you on having home in Carmel or maybe I’d SETTLE for Pebble Beach. I’m currently doing a push up challenge. For all new page like by 5 pm today I will be doing one pushup. That’s fun and positive in that I’m pumping myself up that I can do it (channeling Rob Schneider). I think you and Mike should do a video together and entertain us with your banter. I always love a good giggle and you two seem to be hilarious. Be sure Bam makes a cameo. Hope you have answers soon.

  5. Man, if we could just buy our first home in our own damn neighborhood that would be awesome 🙂 Sigh, Bay Area living, it ain’t cheap.

    PS I would totes laugh. Me and my bf ask one another that all the time….I know whatta a bunch of weirdos.

    PPS Really hope you’re feeling better soon!

    • Oh I feel ya. That’s a big reason why we relocated. The weather is gorgeous & there are a ton of things to do so it kinda makes up for it a little.

  6. Vlog about what you do to prevent stomach issues when you run!! I know you’ve mention it in the past and I need some tips from someone who has experienced these problems, please. What to eat pre-long run, how you fuel during a run, etc.
    I want a beach house. Any beach, anywhere. Even a beach shack…
    Something positive….I’m not sure I can come up with one. 🙁 I’m training for a marathon and have been so excited, but my stomach issues might ruin everything and that’s kinda depressing.

  7. I would have a Penthouse apartment in NYC. Ya know, just a tiny little extra mortgage 🙂

    Whatever your next vlog entails, I will definitely be disappointed if Bam doesn’t make an appearance.

  8. There is a house/lot for sale on your favorite street. I think it is listed for 7 mill. Hubby and I would of bought it, but we fell a million dollars short…darn it LOL! ;P
    I know your frustration. I sure hope things get better for both of us soon. XOX

  9. No grass? I had no idea! At least you have gorgeous scenery to look at, but that really sucks you are in so much pain and restricted from so much. Glad you’re feeling a bit better today!

    • Yes, no grass at all. They want to keep the feel of Carmel By The Sea a “magical forest”. Not joking.
      Thanks for the well wishes, maybe we can have coffee the next time you’re in my neck of the woods?

  10. Sorry you were in so much pain!
    My 2nd home would definitely be in Hawaii – I’ve been trying to convince my husband for years that we can somehow move there. One day!!

  11. What do you mean you can’t have grass? But grass on bare feet is the BEST feeling…well besides warm sand on the feet! You seem to be handling your injury so well…it does help having Mike to make you smile with drives…he’s a special man!

    • It’s true, Carmel By The Sea has a thing against having grass. They think it takes away from the “magical forest” like feel. Crazy, uh?
      And yes, Mike is da man. Don’t tell him or his head will get bigger. 😉

  12. I’m so frustrated for you and all this pain you are in! I’m so sorry girl. I really hope things start looking up soon.

    If I could live ANYWHERE….I’d probably say Hawaii or Arizona. I fell in love with both places and I just love the idea of heat ALL YEAR ROUND. Canada is too cold.

    • Ah Chris, you crazy! Hawaii I get, but AZ is hella hot right now. I mean, yeah, you get to see emz errday, but homie, it’s ridiculously miserable during the summer. I have to get out the crib by 4:30 to get my runs in. We can switch places just for the summers…cuz winters here are da bomb!

  13. If I could buy a second house any where it would be on the beach in a tropical area… no place specific just a place where the beach is my front/backyard, I can hear the waves hitting the beach at night and there is a great running area…. I love the sun and beach sooo much… I’m happy to report that we DO have sun in the NY… all I need is a beach;)

    My birthday is one month from yesterday… holy shiz i’m going to be 32… a young and fabu 32 but 32 none the less… me and 3 girls I work with are planning a girls night away one week before… I’m sooo siked… I have not had an overnight with girlfriends in YEARS… so this is long over due.. You should totally come…we are a good time and it would totes lift your spirits…
