That Time I Accidentally Ran 15 Miles

I accidentally ran 15 miles yesterday. In my defense, maps don’t really offer accurate mileage descriptions. See what happened was. Y’all responded. En masse. To my depression and anxiety post. And a lot of y’all are runners. And I’m not gonna lie. That had me a little shook. Like, running and exercise generates serotonin and … Continue reading That Time I Accidentally Ran 15 Miles

I Can’t Even Care

“Oh look. Beautiful Beastie wants company on her next NM Marathon.” Good thing I don’t go on social media enough to see stuff like that. “I’ll let her know. I’m a good friend.” And damn if I didn’t get a BB text this afternoon. Talking about North Mountain. Dammit, Skratch. And then she says she’s … Continue reading I Can’t Even Care

Leg Day. Just…Leg Day

“Just leave those heavy weights out, guys. Sunshine’s here for the next class.” So, today’s PlayFITStayFIT workout was a 1-2-3-4-5 format. Now, some of you may think that those are reps. They’re not.

Promiseland 50k++ April, 2021

Went for a five mile walk down the greenway yesterday. Had to use Fall Risk and Rogue as handrails. When I stepped down off of sidewalks. Or embankments. Because my body was in full revolt. After spending the entirety of Saturday running. Up and down mountains. And just to add insult to actual injury. I … Continue reading Promiseland 50k++ April, 2021

Puppies and Heavy Objects

I just got angry at someone. For pulling into the parking lot at work. At the same time as me. And this person didn’t even try to speak to me. It was just the threat of forced socialling. At 7:30am. That triggered my anger response. I continue to run through the standard 2020-2021 educator cycle … Continue reading Puppies and Heavy Objects

BRM Volunteer Restoration

Here's what I've realized about me. This week. When my back is at its absolute angriest, there are exactly two things that make it feel better. Rogue's elbows. And lifting heavy things. And when my soul is at its absolute tiredest, there are exactly three things that restore it. Running mountains. Working with kids. And … Continue reading BRM Volunteer Restoration
