Because...I have 12 weeks to prepare for a 4 miler and...zombies make everything better!

Readergrrl Oh, wow! I have the Zombies Run app! I haven‘t used in a few years, but you‘ve made me want to start again! And I agree…zombies make everything better! 1y

wanderinglynn I say decorate it however it makes you happy and leave it decorated that way for however long you want. If Christmas makes you happy, then have it be Christmas all year long. Don‘t worry about what anyone else thinks—it‘s not their tree, it‘s yours. You do you and enjoy it! 2y

Rant: I went on a Whisky Tango Foxtrot run...my Garmin run drill was supposed to be 12 minute warm up, run/recover :30 three times, and a 10 minute cooldown...25 minutes total. The darn thing stayed on run! 40 minutes and 53 seconds after the warm up...I called it quits. I‘m coming back from an injury- I was not ready for this. Luckily I was wearing my favorite running socks (Stance) and my fave Brooks shoes..you know- silver linings.

The Jump Rope Book | Glen Vecchione
post image

Has anyone else tried to jump rope as an adult? It sucks- not as fun as I remember! 😝

GingerAntics It‘s a much different experience, that‘s for sure. Especially if you‘re a woman. I didn‘t have these things in front of me bouncing around and trying to slap me in the face before. My feet do NOT like jumping rope anymore. 2y
RavenLovelyReads @GingerAntics LOL! So true!! Yes- I didn‘t have those things in front of me either! So true about the feet too- I jump on top of a yoga mat...they still hurt! 2y

GingerAntics @RavenLovelyReads I found out that the arches aren‘t really meant to take that kind of repeated impact like that. I could barely walk for weeks after attempting a jump rope challenge (and lasting less than 3 weeks). 2y

Im participating in a photo challenge on IG- today‘s prompt was Dedication Page. This one spoke to me. “...and the one you never knew you did.” 😇 Leon was kind and mailed both my boys a book, and dedicated the books. “Never give up. Please” was exactly what my kid needed. Have you ever read a book dedication and it felt like it was Just. For. You?
