Finding my running mojo + a Friday favorite

Looks like I am finding my running mojo again. I’ve been feeling like the characters in the movie Robots. Every time I think my body mechanics are all in order, I’m sidelined with a new issue. Which of course slows my training down and creates a snowball effect.

It took some confidence building, but I finally did my first post injury punks 5K yesterday. I was quickly reminded about how running does not come naturally or easy for me, which is probably why I love it so much.

Pretty sure I saw a turtle pass me but I only stopped twice. Once for a light and another for horrible heartburn. I’m still confused at that since I took Tums before. I’ll take it though!

I celebrated with a pedi. Not really, my Flintstone feet needed it.

The heartburn continued even after lunch, a Zantac + more Tums so I did the logical thing and got a coffee. Told ya I wasn’t a smart one.

I snuggled with Bam on the couch until I felt a lot better and got a second wind. So I went pool running. Maybe that has some redeeming value from the coffee logic earlier.

Doubt it.

A 30 minute therapy sesh later, I was feeling like a million bucks.

On the way home I saw the sun was setting so I pulled over to snap some pics.

Usually the fog rolls in and we don’t get to see them that often. But when we do, it’s kinda special.

A little Friday favorite love <3

I recently found Jenn on Instagram. She is an ultra runner who got bit by a rattle snake twice about a month ago. Her courage and resilience is incredible! Go check out her page and send some positive thoughts her way.

  1. I’m going to spend some time sweating it out at the gym and I also have plans to go to a BBQ at a friends house. Super excited! I’m even meeting up with her before hand to curl her hair! 🙂

  2. You’re making me want a mani/pedi so badly…may just say to hell with it and do it tomorrow – my feet (and poor hands) need it!
