Hi Again

It has been a long time since I last posted.  Part of it is probably the whole “running blog” thing and how I’m not back to running yet and I feel like blogging training is enabling for overdoing it.  The rest is that I guess I’m just not as interested in blogging as I used to be.  I started blogging in 2006-ish, so forgive me if I needed a break.  Thanks. 🙂 I have been journaling lately in an effort to practice my cursive, which has made me feel nostalgic for blogging, so here I am giving it another try.Continue reading

Quick-Fire Week

I made a really good choice this afternoon when I decided to buy a coffee at work.  I was falling asleep, but now I’m not, and I’m also feeling very optimistic.  I may also be a little hyper, which is making me want to blog, but not put too much effort into writing a well-articulated post. So, a quick-fire approach to recapping my recent life: I went to a yoga class on Thursday with my friend Katie.  It was a lot of fun and felt really good.  It was my first time ever doing yoga in a studio.  I want toContinue reading

Where I am with Not Running and #adayinthelife

Today on Twitter, I am using the #adayinthelife hashtag to chronicle what my non-running butt does on a Friday like today.  I hope if you are interested you will follow along and maybe even join in!  You can find me at @rachmleg.  I will do a round-up of all the tweets on the blog tomorrow, and if you join in and shoot me a message, I will link-up your #adayinthelife in that post!   On Not Running I haven’t run since two Wednesdays ago, so it has been nine days.  A week ago, I wrote that I was hurt but didn’t careContinue reading

I Didn’t Listen to My Body and I Don’t Even Care

Hi. My feet hurt. My feet have hurt for the last several weeks and I have kept running on them feeling them get worse and worse and knowing I was running myself into an injury. Yet for some reason, I didn’t care. And honestly, I still don’t care. I haven’t run since Wednesday, which is only five days ago. For the last week and a half of running, I have been seriously considering quitting altogether. While running 12 miles around the lake two weekends ago, I was thinking about how I didn’t even really like running long anymore and howContinue reading

#alltheawards – Thanks Laura!

The very sweet Laura from The Gluten-Free Treadmill has tagged me in her #alltheawards post. 🙂 The rules! Accept the #alltheawards award, tell us seven things about you, and nominate seven more blogs. Since I only started this blog this month, it shouldn’t be too hard to come up with seven things you don’t know about me yet, right…?  If I can get my mind off my hip long enough to come up with seven facts that aren’t seven injuries I’ve had in my lifetime. Happy thoughts, here goes! My go-to fun-facts fact: I’ve had four concussions from figure skating growing up.Continue reading
