Stranger Danger Strides (yes I ran with a stranger)
Yes I’ve been MIA. I’d like to think that it’s because I’ve been sitting around taking part in marathons that involve binging on chocolate and trashy TV, but alas, it’s mostly because I’ve changed up the ol’ routine. Bye bye crazy strides, hello, cross training and weight lifting.
Packing the contents of the home with one adult and 3 tiny-ish humans is exhausting. And yes, I even got the bunk beds down myself. #proudmoment
Don’t worry, I did some serious heavy lifting of other sorts on a few pack breaks over the weekend, so you can’t feel too sorry for me.
And besides, those champagne glasses were really heavy as well….
That said, this morning I hit the road for an early run and ended up literally running into a local runner, we peeled a few miles out together and I forgot just how delightful the running community can be…mostly because I haven’t been running that much.
I suppose carrying your body weight times 20 up and down the stairs for days on end will rob of you motivation rather quickly. But I guess ants do that every day, so why am I complaining?
In non-related running news – are you a lover or hater of moving?
I LOVE I have purged so much stuff from the house…but am starting to wonder just how empty the new place will be now that I’ve gotten rid of so much. That said I just want to be in my new bed, in my new room, with my new patio furniture serving up drinks to whomever wants to come over. Any takers?
