About Me

This is my place to rehash and relive the ups and downs of running.   I’ve been running for about 8 years and I am now starting treating my entire body instead of just getting out and running.

I need to put dates on my *Updates.  

Update January 2015.  (better :) )
I'm fighting the stress eating and still like Primal but took a break to give into my cravings.  Things I don't eat regularly because I don't like how they make me feel is bread and most pastas.  But rice and potatoes have taken a big roll in my diet as I increase my mileage and prepare for my first marathon.  

Still doing core at home and my mileage has increased to almost 100 miles a month!  I'm wearing Hoka's and they have decreased my foot pain to ZERO. 

To know me now is to know this story.

Why can't I be mad

Six months after my last divorce my ex-husband revealed to me that he is Transgender and has been all his life.  This was October 2013.  I've spent a lot of time since then processes the deceit and lies.  The opportunities he had to tell me and how to move on and trust people in general.  The after affects have been out of my control and surprised me.  At this time I am feeling stronger emotionally and there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  I don't talk about it much.  I feel like I have to explain WHY I'm so hurt and mad but there is no words.  Thankful for loving friends and family for being there.  They don't have words either.  

Things do change (yes, yes they do).  I still eat pretty Primal but the last while has been tough and it's difficult to stay away from sweets.  It's a work in progress for sure!  I stopped taking Pilates Reformer classes.  Not because I didn't love them but I just couldn't find the time with 2 jobs.  I do core exercises at home.  The Plantar Fasciitis is gone.  Kaput.  Done.  It's a miracle but I still treat my feet with great care.  I know it can flare back up.  Now my goals are to run longer and stronger!

My story of beating Plantar Fasciitis!  Still have nerve damage from continued running on an injury.  The nerve damage has nothing to do with the surgery.

Running in Florida.  Wet.

I also use this blog as a place to share some of my experiences and adventures.  As a flight nurse I love to brag about my amazing job and harrowing, butt puckering experiences.  (HIPPA laws strictly enforced on this blog)  I also like to mention the characters in my life, my friends and family on occasion. 

Lights and Sirens - work

It comes with Responsibility

Hanging out as medical standby at the jet car races.  Not a bad gig.

Kids  - I love this pic of my boys in 2010.  My kids have an awesome sense of humor!  They are growing up and I only have one left at home.  Life goes by super fast!

Me, my brother Joe and my mom at a Bank Meeting.  
Goofy doesn't fall far from the tree.

If I’m not talking like a sailor, I’m thinking like a sailor.  Nine years in critical care completely breaks down any filter and no subject is off limits.  Although I try my best to keep this blog “G” rated, with a PG aura. 

My hope is to meet more like minded awesomeness and maybe even a couple of late 40’sish crazies that love to run.  Albeit somewhat slow and chit chat about the challenges of raising pushing children to get out of the nest, deal with the peri-menopausal body and mind AND laugh at the cruelness of mother nature’s plan.  PLEASE MENOPAUSE JUST COMMMIT....bahahaha

I love vodka, Slash, new shoes and when my kids are all home at once.  Not necessarily in that order. 

I also love snowmobiling.  

I have the best of friends.  It's not the best picture, but I love our smiles!

My son's hand in the back saying, "why are you taking your picture while your driving?" Hey, it was a good hair day and proof that I wore braces.  It was hell.

I may be a nurse - but please understand that anything I say on my blog concerning running, injuries, health or really anything is just my opinion.  I have never even worked in an orthopedic environment. Take it with a grain of salt and never skimp on seeing your general practitioner with any questions.
