Rambling On- 50

It’s been a while since I rambled and boy are lots of thoughts bouncing around my head.

The rain is making me cranky and fussy. Well, maybe that’s just me. The last time I was this stressed by the weather was 2 years when constant rain took out my route to work. Maybe that’s a hidden stress- constant worry that the highway is going to get shutdown for 2 months again. Well, that and that it’s effecting my running. Running in the rain is one thing but I don’t trust the drivers around here on sunny, clear days. I mean we iced over a few weeks ago and there were 15 accidents in a 2 mile stretch of freeway in an hour.

There have some cool sunsets though..

Sometimes I feel like it’s 2 steps forward and 15 back. Work, running, health, etc. I have a feeling I know what my weak spot is but can’t seem to make myself do anything about it. Which then again is the problem. Grrrr.

But in good news, I got my tax return. Paid back the room re-do, yay. I also paid off my bed. Could someone explain to me why those things cost so damn much?!?!

Oh, did I mention added some more races to the calendar? I used to race just for the hell of it, I miss that. The last few years I was focused on getting faster but did nothing but get slower and slower. I miss those naïve days of racing and want to get back to just having fun and running ALL the races.

Did I ever mention that I am part of Orange Mud’s ambassador team – The Dirt Unit?? I’ve the company for years and own 4 different packs, the handheld and multiple transition towels. Serious love. And if the damn rain ever stops, the trails might open and I can get back out on them.

I feel like there is more to say but I’ll stop there for now.

Share your random!

  1. My intent going forward is to race for fun. I’m not signing up for anything in advance. If I can’t get in . . oh well. Too much money lost in DNS due to either health or motivation. I’m going to race when the mood strikes and my calendar is free.

    • I am the same when it comes to local races, I rarely sign up until the week before. I would rather pay more money and run it than save some money and miss the race. That doesn’t really save anything.

  2. My random thought- when is the snow going to stop?!! I live on the west coast for a reason!
