How does one person accumulate so much stuff? I had a SUV load (Thanks Hollster!) of odds and ends that went straight to the Salvation Army. I seriously need to stop accepting gifts from my adoring fans. And by adoring fans, I mean my grandma.
I’m getting acclimated to my new location and am looking forward to my run this evening. Plus I’ve got an early AM run scheduled tomorrow along that lovely waterfront sidewalk I’m all jazzed up about.
My 16 miler on Saturday was one of the toughest runs I’ve completed lately and I attribute that to… EARMUFFS DUDES… cramps. So yeah, I had cramps and on top of that I was just flat out tired from moving stupid boxes up and down the damn stairs on Friday. However, I will say that even with that run feeling like poo I managed to hang on to an 8:41 pace overall. I’ll take it. I’ll look back at this run during the Miami Marathon and think “You got this! You ran through cramps and an achy back! Suck it up buttercup!”
I can’t end this post without a HUGE shout out to KC! She, of course, KILLED it at Ironman Florida. She was up and at ’em on Sunday when I surely would have been passed out and unconscious after all that. Heh. I’ll let her tell it so stay tuned for her recap.
Congrats to those who did IMFL and those who ran the NYC Marathon. And of course any other races out there!
Happy Monday. Who wants to help me unpack?
I despise moving!!!! Kudos to you for running through the cramps! I would have stayed in bed!!
I would so help you if I lived there!!! MIss having peeps to run with.
Can I take off my earmuffs??????
Men don't usually have earmuffs, especially for their eyes…
Awesome job and I get you on the accumulation of stuff….I questioned the same thing with my recent move. And I also just noticed a moving trend because you are #3 who is going through the same stuff. Hmmm…..
As someone who has moved 7 times in the past 5 years I can honestly say its the UNPACKING that is the worst. Total suck
so good luck with it 😉
8:41 pace seems pretty great for a run where you were tired and crampy. Watch out Miami!
We're moving at the end of the month. Hopefully the last time for a really, really long time. Cheers!
Wow still getting the run in with the move and "other" good job!
Yea KC said you got to hijack her facebook page for stalking updates. Very cool! I ran it too, and got to meet KC in person before I knew she had a blog. What a small world!
You got it right: It's the tough runs that keep us going as we accept those and know that the good one is around the corner.
I hate moving. I am secretly happy that nobody bought my house this summer b/c moving in that heat would have sucked big time.
Awesome job on gutting out the run!
I loathe moving/packing/unpacking. We have so.much.STUFF..
there was a weekend?
