On Commuting Long Distances
Sunday, January 12, 2020      5 comments

This week marks my last of long commuting to work. Since November 2015, I have been commuting for at least one hour to work each way. As you read that, you probably think the same thing that many people have over the past four years, that I’m in... Read more

Some Leonard Bernstein for this cloudy, dreary Sunday. My sinuses are killing me today, so the plan is to lay around, watch Harry Potter and eat Meatloaf. This week I had a bit of a mini melt down. Sometimes, I walk in and I feel like I'm d... Read more

No powertrips lately. At least I hope my subordinates think that too. My mom came and visited last weekend. It was good to have her here for a little. The visit got slightly morbid, because we sat down and talked about what she wanted to ha... Read more
I Would Do Anything For Love

Today's blog title is courtesy of Meatloaf. I remember watching him in a Masters of Horror episodes in college. He does some crazy stuff for a woman he loves, so my friend and I would always joke that "he would do that" for love. I do a lo... Read more

I decided to start naming my subheadings after the song I'm currently listening to while writing my blog. Today it's "Subdivisions" by Rush. It kind of fits. I've need to figure out how to divide my time up over the next few months. I had t... Read more

Concert band has started up again this week. That and the early mornings for half marathon training make me feel the extra curricular vibes of high school and college. It's part fun, part wanting to crawl in a hole and hide from everything. All ... Read more

Today was exhausting! Had to drive into Philly to get my race packet. It's the first race I ever had to do that, where I didn't have the option of sames day pick up or a shipped packet. I'm sure the fact that I had to walk through their merchand... Read more

Had an excellent week at work! My bosses think I'm killing it, and I even won our department award for them month! I had a job in college. I was the assistant to the secretary of the fine arts department. It was my favorite job. Nothing else has... Read more

First week back into training was a success! I managed to do all of my workouts, even with not so great conditions. My boyfriend's car has to go into the shop, and I had to drive him into work Thursday and Friday, which messed up my workout time... Read more

I've been a bit absence, I know. But it's not due to anything cad. It's actually all been good. My mom came to visit last weekend, and it was nice to get to celebrate her birthday with her. We went to the beach, wandered around the boardwalk, co... Read more

My first official week of training went pretty well. I didn't miss a workout (which is half the battle). But I went a little too hard on my long run, and had to walk the last 15 minutes. What's surprising is that I still finished my whole workou... Read more

I've spent the last month focusing on getting myself back into a good frame of mind. A good routine. I remember watching a TED talk a few years ago, where the speaker kind of downplayed having routine, saying how it bores people to death. I'm th... Read more

I've recently taken a break from a lot of things, including writing and running. But now I'm back, and ready to share my experience. A couple weeks ago I admitted that I have issues with anxiety/depression. I think I've had these things aff... Read more

I didn't do too bad on my training this week. I worked out four days. The reason I didn't make it five is because I was suuuuuuuuper sore the day after my first strength training workout! I'm back to normal now, so I fee confident that I can at ... Read more

I'm having a hard time getting back on the training wagon. This happens after I'm done with every race. I don't know if I just burn myself out, but I always feel like I need more time to relax. Well, I have 18 weeks until my next half, so I bett... Read more
