{#1-Running On Empty by Marshall Ulrich}
2013-07-18 22.14.14
I mentioned this book earlier this spring. To be honest, I’m only half way through it. I really enjoy reading it, but I just don’t have a lot of free time where I choose reading first. With no running this week I’ve had more time on my hands to do some reading. I took a photo of the above text from his book because it is the FIRST time I’ve ever heard someone describe their experiences running long distance in the way that he has. I too have an imagination when I run and think about what the world was like, would be like, and other thoughts of the like. My imagination goes wild at times! These are usually my favorite runs when this happens. Does this happen to anyone else?

{#2-Bye, Bye Ben & Jerry’s and other treats}

Since I’m not exercising like normal, I’m not burning the normal calories I would be. The simple math of the matter is there is less room for treats like my favorite buds Ben & Jerry unless I want to end up like on of their flavors-Chunky Monkey. 😉 I’ve always felt running is one of my loves for many reasons. While the number one reason I run is because of the way it makes me feel mentally and physically, my love of desserts is on the list, too.

{#3-Country Jam}
I’m off to Jam today to see some of these awesome people with some awesome people! I’m pretty sure a sprained ankle is the best excuse to look for buy a pair of cowboy boots to wear to the country event. I mean I could wear my brace underneath it while at Jam. Ry did not love this idea! We will see!

I’m working on remembering this as it will feel like starting over when I’m able to run again.

{#5-Stilettos in New Orleans}
2013-07-08 22.07.25
I just finished making our vacation video that contains 700+ photos from our two week road trip. I saw this one and remembered I forgot to share. On Bourbon street there is an “establishment” called Stilettos; I had to take a picture under the sign since it’s half my blog title. Maybe the flats in the photo were a sign I wouldn’t be wearing stilettos any time soon.

Happy Weekend, Y’all!
