This morning I ran in a race for the first time without Mr Loco by my side. We enjoyed running together. Running was time to unwind and chat. We connected through running. We had fun running together. We liked to dream of vacations as we made a list of races we wanted to tackle. There are … More Run Mrs Loco, Run
I just registered for Pat’s Run. I can’t believe I did it, but it seemed like the right thing to do. I was planning on doing it before life turned sideways. Mr Loco and I talked about it. He was going to test out his new role as cheerleader and baby wrangler while I ran … More Running Without My Partner
Mr Loco wrote this back when we first found out I was pregnant. He let me read a paper copy, I blushed, we made out…..so the story goes. After losing Mr Loco I had the strong desire to look at photos, to try to gather as much video as I could that captured his voice … More I Knocked Up My High School Girlfriend When We Were 36 The Mostly Trueish Story of Finding Love Where I Always Knew It Would Be
I meant to publish weekly updates on my condition, but after I was released from the hospital, I was either trying to get caught up on work or exhausted – Mrs. Loco can tell you there was no middle ground. So, here’s my attempt to resume the GBS story. As I mentioned before, I spent … More Drugs, Antibodies, Pain & Relief
Problems: I found myself listening to the same music over and over again. I have over 37k tracks in my iTunes library and I’ve probably never heard most of them. In fact, when I started this, I had about 32k tracks with a play count of 0. Possible solutions: Force myself to listen to specific … More The Dark iTunes Library
Apparently, I haven’t updated my blog in almost 3-1/2 years, which beat my previous three-month record. A lot has happened since January of 2010, so I’ll just bullet-point the highlights (somewhat, but not exactly in order). Got a new job working for the state where I took a metric crap ton of training on emergency … More Whoa. This is still a thing.
Wow, I haven’t updated my blog since the Phoenix 10k? Quite a bit has happened since then: Got laid off from my job Ran/walked the P.F. Chang’s Rock ‘n Roll Arizona Half Marathon Well, okay, that’s not really very much. My position was terminated due to a reduction in force on December 14. It was … More Don’t worry, the Zombies didn’t catch up to me.
It’s been a crazy few days, and the hot week we had in Phoenix hasn’t helped at all. Seriously, it’s November and we’re still seeing 90°+ days? I was ready for summer to be over in September, but it’s still beating us down. But enough bitching about the weather. I did my week three short … More I’m here to complete, not compete…
I’m not blogging to myself anymore; I’ve amassed a loyal band of readers that number somewhere in the single digits. Mid-to-low single digits. So, I will no longer address my nonexistent readers. I’ve also decided to limit myself to weekly blogging because (a) I don’t have time for much more than that, (b) that’s been … More Spooky Six
My apologies, nonexistent readers, for not updating you in almost a week. Most of the week was spent icing my shin or knee and trying to keep both elevated, so there wasn’t much to report. On Thursday, I felt well enough to run again, but I decided to leave the hydration belt I hate behind … More The Finish Line is Just Another Starting Line
