    so long 2013, don’t let the door hit you on the way out

    In 20 minutes this year will be over. Honestly, I didn’t think I’d still be awake by now but we watched two episodes of Buffy in a row and then it was suddenly after eleven. I took a shower and now I’m just waiting. Not sure why. I think it’s because I’m just eager for this year to finally be over. Done. And I am pretty sure I’ll be kicking myself  a year from now, but I just don’t have it in me to do my yearly wrap up on the blog. This isn’t particularly a year I want to remember. It’s been one of the lousiest years I can…

    the Year of Being Active

    The past year I have made some pretty big changes in my life.

But I spent money today, so it’s like, a real thing. I am going to be a runner. And although I don’t go out nearly as often as I think I should.

    diary of a non-jogger – july is not the best running month

      Hey, so I keep meaning to update this blog with more than just jogging posts but I never seem to find the motivation. I have a different post already started about other things, but each time I sit down with the intention of blogging I get restless and distracted.  I’m a day-time blogger, really, so if I can’t find time at work to update (and trust me, I can’t. Soooo busy.) I just don’t feel like sitting and writing when I get home after a long day. Alas. Even now, as I try and write this particular post about my run this morning, I’m all over the place. Not…
