Change Is Hard

Change ain't easy, folks. The last I chatted with you lovely readers (if I have any left), I was challenging myself to a one year transformation, blah, blah, blah.  I didn't write about this, but I also challenged myself to run 1000 miles before next year's NYC Marathon. The timer started the weekend of this year's NYCM. Let's just say that's not going swimmingly.

What a rock star. It's taken me 7 weeks to run
the Goofy Challenge.
I have gone running twice this week, so that's something. I could make a million excuses, but the truth of the matter is that work is insane this time of year and I've got a family member with some serious health issues that has been taking up all of my energy. Also, I just haven't had the desire to get out there.

Look! Proof of me running. Well, it's proof I was
out in nature. Close enough.
I've also sat down to blog several times in the last few weeks but couldn't bring myself to so that, either. Part of the problem is that I don't really have anything to write about. It sucks when you realize you're not as entertaining as you think you are. Bah humbug.

Can you believe I only did 2 half marathons in 2013? One was part of Goofy Challenge and the second was part of Dumbo Double Dare. I think I'm going to do the half marathon at Rock 'n' Roll Arizona in January and then I'm doing Glass Slipper Challenge in February, which I'm crazy excited about. First of all, I'm going to WDW with WDW newbies and I get to see this girl. And we're staying for almost a week, so I can really see everything. Last time I was there for Goofy Challenge, we never even made it to Animal Kingdom or Hollywood Studios. We were just too trashed after the marathon.

I still need to do a recap of the Hot Chocolate Race, which was awesome. Not because I was a running rock star, because that sure as hell wasn't the case, but because the race itself was great with great swag. Any the chocolate was crazy good. I know that race has gotten a lot of bad publicity, more the Phoenix event is amazing. More on that later.

In closing, here is picture of my adorable cats. The baby is bigger than Mommy Cat now.


  1. Wow! A thousand miles is a lot, but it'll definitely prepare you for the marathon! Good luck!
    I rarely have anything to write about either. It does get difficult trying to come up with ideas all the time!

    1. I'm considering changing it to 750. I think I might be so far in the hole at this point that I won't be able to catch up.

  2. Awww Kitties!!! I'm such a sucker for kitty pics. Here's what I say, I say that 2 runs is better than no runs! Just popping in to wish you a Merry Christmas! We're just 60 days from the GSC now! Hope you enjoy the holidays!

  3. I'm really excited for GSC! I haven't done Princess weekend since 2011! Hopefully I'll get to meet you there!

  4. "It's taken me 7 weeks to run the Goofy Challenge."- I DIED!!
    I didn't run as many halves either, focusing on marathon training really took up my entire year.

    I'm so jealous of the RNRAZ medal!

    and I can't wait to see you either!! We totally got GSC! It's going to be a blast.

    1. I love that my total after that run was exactly 39.3 miles.

      I'm glad the RnRAZ medal is good because the race is somewhat meh. But I hear they've changed the course and it's a lot better.


Thanks for reading!
