Oh Lawd, What am I Thinking?


I plan to run my first marathon this year. I wanted to do something local so that I didn't have to contend with travel. A couple weeks ago I decided to figure out which race I would be running. Because of my teaching schedule the one that made the most sense was the Niagara Ultra Marathon. The trouble with making this choice was that a) I have only 10.5 weeks to train and b) I have taken a whole season off running. Eeek! I hope to finish the race at a run, but I have no illusions about time...this will not be a fast race!

Here is my express training schedule. I started the day I signed up for the race. It is a little daunting to start with a 2 km run and finish with a marathon. I'm totally freaked out, but determined. 

Distraction: here is a funny running story blast from the past. So embarrassing!

Update: A little further along. A little rearranging here and there, but still alive and on track, somehow.

Stay tuned for more...

Charlie Hovering Two Inches Above the Ground

This post is a bit of a #tbt , but when I found these old photos of Charlie 'Hovering Two Inches Above the Ground'... well, I couldn't help but laugh!

Things Haven Alexander Has Said Tonight

Things Haven Alexander has said Tonight, is a new and very exciting series from LANDLOCKED ART! What's more - it is done Buzz Feed style, so that it can be both amazing and annoying simultaneously. A big special thanks to Haven for being so full of magical content. Keep making me spit out my tea and we will be in it for the long haul, I'm quite sure!

"Cate Blanchett was in Hannah? Huh, well she's all grown up"

"Now that's a nice moat"

"Someone has to tell that girl she's wearing too much makeup, and it can't be me"

"If some guy says freaky shit in a dark forest...I'm outta there"
