Not much going on here

I haven’t posted much lately because I’ve been busy running and not sleeping. Anyone who is training knows that is not a good combination. Hell, anyone who isn’t sleeping knows that’s just the pits all by itself.

Here are a few highlights:

– Marathon training is already past the 1/2 way point. Yee haw! I’ve run 2 half marathon distances in my long runs. I think I’m supposed to be proud of that but my brain can’t get past the fact that I still have to get through a whole marathon at the end of May so I’m not really feeling as good about this as I probably should.

– Momma got a new pair of shoes! I had some wonky foot thing happening. It was my right foot and pain had developed under the ball and arch of my foot. I didn’t think it was time to swap shoes but as soon as I tried on the new ones, they felt like clouds of cushion-y delight. Sold! Feet have been fine since.

– Training with the now 8 year old daughter (just had a birthday) has begun. We’ve got a 5K race coming up in May. It’s not going so well. This is unexpected. She’s more athletic than my 10 (soon to be 11) year old son so I thought this would be easy. Plus, she asked to enter this race. Just another example of how you never know what you’re going to get with kids…

– I had some chafing in some lady bits where I haven’t had chafing before. I’ll spare you the detail but I take solace in the fact that I’m not the only one who’s had undies wind up where they shouldn’t. Thanks to eat, drink, run’s comments on this post, I know lady-bit chafing has taken down more than one runner. Read this for a good laugh. Then come back here and by then I will have posted something brilliant, insightful, humorous or a combination of all three. Hey, at the very least, I’ll post a recipe.

Happy trails!
