Happy Friday!!

First week post merger is almost done!  Woo hoo!  I didn’t mess up answering the phones as bad as I thought.  πŸ˜›  Only a few times.

Rain is coming back, boo.   While I am over the rain and dealing with it, it’s kind of shocking how quickly all the lush green started to go brown in the last 2 weeks.   Anyways, it’s only supposed to be for a few days.

from Tuesday’s run

Oh, speaking of the new company- they treated us to lunch on Monday.  Since I always have a late lunch I am weird about what food I will order since it has to wait a couple hours.  I ordered the grilled cheese.  Holy crap, this was the most amazing thing ever.    I ate part of it when it arrived and reheated the rest at lunch.  Seriously, it was awesome.    Oh yeah, the fries were damn good too.

I had to go to an IRS office to prove who I was.  That was fun.    This was after a phone call where I spoke with an unbelievably rude representative from the IRS.    Can the person who tried to fraudulently use my social security number and get a massive refund just pay my taxes this year?  That would be nice, ok, thanks.

I won’t lie, I really just want to spend a day sleeping.  Is that bad?  If it could be on a beach in a hammock, all the better but at this point just sleep.  I’m still feeling a little ragged around the edges after last week.

I totally had something else to say but just completely blanked…oops!  Your turn!

What are you doing this weekend?

What up Friday?!Β  Woot Woot!

Ok, that was cheesy.Β  Sorry, it’s been an odd week.

So today is St. Patrick’s Day but it seems like everyone partied last weekend?Β  I was a little stumped by some things I saw on social media.Β  Then again, I’m kind of homebody so maybe I was the only clueless one.Β Β  I mean I can understand why you wouldn’t want to race the morning after St. Patrick’s Day.Β  Just ouch.

A sinkhole opened in work town!Β  Holy crap!Β  It’s a small one but seriously those things only happen on tv in other places.Β  So weird.Β Β  And freaky.

Speaking of freaky, have seen that Kripsy Kreme is making green donuts for today?Β Β  Ummm, I think they went too far.

Part of me wants to run a 5K this weekend.Β  Part of me wants to sleep in.Β  Am I really that lazy?Β Β Β  Or that I doubt my follow through for running another 8 miles after that to finish my long run.

What are you doing this weekend?

Anyone racing?Β  Any parties?

Anyone sleeping in? πŸ˜›

Run!

Happy Friday! 

It’s time change weekend!!  Woo hoo!!! Now I will complain when my complain when my alarm goes off on Monday… and Tuesday, etc but I am so looking forward to more daylight for my after work runs.   I am sorry for everyone running a race this Sunday though.

Is anyone else watching Riverdale?  Does anyone else feel old watching Luke Perry and Skeet Ulrich?  Or is just me? πŸ˜›  And tell me, is that Zack or Cody?

For the first time in months, there is no rain in the forecast for at least 7 days.  Yay!!!  Now we just have wind.  Boo.  But the sun is marvelous.   I really wish we had some sort of outside sitting area at work.

how about a sunset?

Speaking of work, the merger is going full steam.   On a personal, whiny note, I learned that I have to start taking more normal lunches.  Boo.  My lunch is usually around 2:15 which is way past the 5 hour mark (CA law) but I signed a permanent waiver because my theory is that everyone else’s lunch was more important than mine.  Well and I used to be exempt.  I’ve adjusted to it over the years and now I like it.  But things will change in April.  But hey, maybe this will help my weird blood sugar issues?

I always start these posts with so much to tell you then forget half of it while I am typing.   😁

I may go shoe shopping this weekend.  The Sayonara’s have worked but they aren’t awesome.  My toes hurt after runs and my shins are not very happy.  I am hopeful that Brooks fixed all of the problems with the Pure Flow 5’s and that the 6’s are much better.  I’ve heard good things, so fingers crossed!

What do you have planned this weekend?

Anyone racing?

Share something!

Happy Friday!

This is not the post I had planned or started earlier this week…oops.  I have a post half done about fuel but that can go up next week.  I feel like I blinked and suddenly it was Friday.  I mean don’t get me wrong, I love Fridays but where did the week go?  On Thursday I thought it was Tuesday.  How does that work?

We had 2 days of sun!!!! Insane wind came along with that but who cares the sun came out!!!   I wanted to be like a cat and just find a warm (indoor) spot to lay in the sun.

My pace has been frustrating me lately.  Ok for 3 years.  I used to be so much faster.  I just can’t seem to break the wall I’ve built in my head.  Or my lungs.  And then on random Thursday runs, things like this happen-


What the hell.  I didn’t feel like I was running that hard.

Speaking of random Thursday runs, I wasn’t supposed to run, I was supposed to have lab work done.  Except part of that of lab work was a glucose test.  And it turns out it was the glucose test you need to fast for…despite my doctor and the nurses at his office telling me that I didn’t.  They also wrote that on the lab slip.  Aargh!!!!!  I took time off work for this!


I had another sunset run this week though, so shiny. πŸ˜‰

Was your week speedy?

What are you doing this weekend?

Share something random!

I really like these brain clearing posts.  Or maybe I’ve just been so scattered lately that they help me loosen some knots in my brain.    πŸ˜›

Happy Friday!!!

I was supposed to run a half marathon this weekend but the Slacker in me forgot to take into account the extra time needed to get every runner security clearance to run on a army base.  Slacker fail.    But then with all the rain that is predicted to fall over the next 5 days maybe that was a good thing?

My road to work is open and it is freaking awesome.    It’s still under construction in the mornings and there are little mountains of dirt everywhere- they removed 20,000 tons of rock and dirt from the hillside!!- but it’s open!!  That was the longest month.  That longer drive was really getting to me.

So Monday was interesting.  I was on the street side of the building when I heard a loud noise outside.  We all looked outside to see what was going on.  A truck had just driven over a big dip in the street and looked to be dragging something under it.  Had it lost part of its engine?    It slowed then blew through the intersection without stopping.  By now we are all staring out the windows, then my coworker looked out the door and it all became clear.  Dude has slammed into her parked car, tore it up and continued driving!   He was dragging pieces of her car!  WTF dude?!

I went for a run on Tuesday.  Wasn’t the best but I mean come on…look at this…just awesome.


I redesigned my blog.   Still working out a few kinks.  But be honest, how do you read this?  Phone? Laptop?  WordPress app?  Bloglovin?

I’ve had to reassess my training for a few reasons.  More on that in my weekly recap but I think finally admitting it has lessen my stress level a bit.

It’s a 3 day weekend, woo hoo!!!!   Is it sad that I am looking forward to sleep the most?  Then running?

Do you have a 3 day weekend?  What are you doing?

How do you read blogs?

Ever observe something crazy?
