It’s been busy around these parts and bloggy blog hasn’t seen much attention from me in a while. 

Quick update? Sure.

Thursday - Ran for the first time in a week. It felt really good and did an extra mile because “I could run like this forever.” Still only 4.5 miles. I need to be upping my mileage because I have a half marathon in 4 weeks.

Friday - Even though I was pumped from running Thursday night, I had my first day regular teacher prep day, so time was limited. Then Ethan and I went indoor climbing with Brenna’s Anders. 

Today? Mountains. 

Surely, I will run tomorrow. Maybe? Definitely will because I only have 4 weeks.

I ran for the first time since the road trip. 
I also started some work-y things today, too. 
I really like structure. It helps me with my habits.

Hey-o 3 day running streak

Last run in my hometown for a while. I hadn’t been honked at for some time. I almost forgot how to flip someone the bird.

Good miles.

I’ve been feeling more successful when I don’t compare my running now to when I was in the middle of marathon training.

Might you be interested in Indy pizza on Friday?

Some Chicago tourism on Saturday? Maybe even a run?

Holla’ at me. 

Weirdos need not apply.

I haven’t been completely lame these past few days. I’m not going to lie though, this summer of transition is really difficult. Life without structure doesn’t work well for me. 
Starting yesterday, I’ve been trying to get myself together.
Yesterday, I put in 3.6 miles.
Today, 4.5 miles.
I have, however, been out of control in the eating department. You’d think food was going out of style and love handles were back in with the way I’ve been putting it down. 
I’m working on my motivation and reminding myself that running actually feels really awesome.
