Don’t you just hate it when winter takes over and you suddenly have neither the time nor the will to do anything but join a training program and run 20+ miles a week in the sleet, snow, muck and yuck until spring?
Wait, you don’t? That’s just me?
Turns out this is the first weekend I’ve not been utterly booked by running, climbing, and other events, and with the added bonus of a proper head cold, I can justify sitting on my tush to post something. I have been crafting in the past months, and there will be some short posts for them after this.
In the mean time, updating now to log where I am at this point. When I began running over a year ago, I was 127 pounds, unemployed, and fairly well medicated but unhappy. Now, looking back on a fun weekend celebrating my 27th birthday (dear god, the adulting is so hardcore now, I went to bed at midnight and called it ‘late’), I’m 111-ish pounds, finished my first year as a teacher, and am off the meds. I’ve run countless 5k fun runs with my running group and five proper 5k races and am in the middle of training for my first 10k in April. I’ve made friends in my running group and at work, and have a direction in my career.
All that, while still crafting. I’ll show off what I’ve made starting next week, but wanted to announce that I found some super awesome youtube how-tos and crafting blogs (vlogs?) to add to my links page. Go check them out, they’ll inspire.
