Getting Back on Track


I've been a bad blogger. Again. I'm sorry for disappearing on you again. I've been super busy as usual, and a lot of  things have changed for me since my last post. I haven't forgotten about the blog though I promise and now that things are settling down some, I hope to be start posting more regularly.

So what exactly have I been doing while I was away?
Buster, my new corgi puppy


  • I got a "big kid" job. I got my first real full-time salaried job and it feels great to be so much more independent. I    don't want to share too many details, but I'm working with a small software company and it's been hectic and crazy at times, but mostly it's been fun. There are even some runners and athletes at work who encourage me to move more which is nice. 
  • I moved in with Cam. Cameron and I have always practically lived together when we were close by, but never actually moved in together. I didn't think it would be that much of a change, but I quickly learned that practically and actually are very different things haha. It's been challenging at times getting used to the quirks of living with a boy who is my complete opposite in most ways, but it's been amazing and I wouldn't have it any other way now. 
  • I got a new puppy. After moving to a new neighborhood (and town), we didn't have as many friends for Champ to play with. It was really hard on him because he was so used to being around other dogs all the time. Cam and I had talked about getting another dog before, so this seemed like the perfect time. The new puppy's name is Buster and he's a very devious little 9-week-old corgi. 
  • I joined Fitocracy. If you haven't done it, you should. It's a pretty cool site. fitocracy.com
  • I got my wisdom teeth removed. Not fun at all. I looked like a chipmunk and felt horrible for a while. I'm back to solid foods now though!
  • I threw my best friend's bridal shower. I mentioned it before, but my best friend is getting married and my maid of honor duties are starting to kick into high gear with the wedding approaching.
 
  • I didn't run almost at all. That's right, my running has been majorly slacking. I missed it so much, but with all the big changes going on I just wasn't able to keep on the ball with workouts. However,  I'm working on changing that and I've got new plans to make my running more dynamic and workouts more fun. I did a few workouts here and there, but no races and nothing very exciting. 
And that's pretty much the highlights. What have you been up to while I was slacking?

  1. Welcome back to blogging! It's hard to find the time to write when you have so much going on. Try to find some "me time" every day whether it's blogging or running! Don't do what I did and sit on my rear for 10 hours a day, eat lots of crap, and not exercised... I gained 18 lbs in 2 years. Yikess. Looking forward to your next post! PS - Your puppy is soo cute! I have a special place in my heart for corgis. =)

  2. Hey! You just saved me! I am trying to put together a wonderwoman costume for an upcoming mud run. I planned to make a spandex running skirt, but didn't want to spend a lot of money on spandex, since it likely may get ruined in the mud. I googled "wonderwoman running costume" and found your blog. It's a great idea to make a tutu, since tutus are much less expensive! Thanks for your help!

  3. I just found your blog on Pinterest and you are a HUGE blessing already. I've had asthma since I was 2 also, and I'm 19 now and it's awful. I have lots of lung problems and always hated that I could never run because I love it so much but it always ends with me being hooked up to my nebulizer or gripping my inhaler. I'm going to try your plan though and see if I can do it. I've always tried to run, but hated the AWFUL pain that came with it. I don't know if you do this, but I would love to talk to you one-on-one about it too. You are incredible and so inspiring! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. As I crazy as I probably sound, you have already given me so much hope! Thank you. I'm going to do a post about you on my blog for the other people I know with asthma or breathing problems! You are awesome.

    1. Thank you so much Alexa! You rock and you definitely can run. It's so hard at first, trust me I know, but as frustrating as it is, I think it's more fulfilling when you have to work that hard at it!

  4. Your blog is Awesome! Its so hard to get a handle on asthma especially with sports and training. It's nice to see that someone is creating useful tips for future runners.

  5. I happened to stumble across your blog while looking for something else and WOW! I love it!
    I am unique in that asthma has come into my life as an adult. In high school I was always an athlete and loved sports (basketball and rugby) so I took it pretty hard. But it's nice to know there are other people out there like me and ways to overcome asthma and still be athletic. Your running tips are great; I've been looking for ways to get back into running and I think I found it!

    Thanks for blogging!
