So I pretty much dropped off the face of the planet for the last couple of weeks. Why? Well, Mark and I officially set a date for our wedding.
It is September 14, 2013…
So obviously we have
soooooo much time to plan our wedding. While I work well under pressure, I don’t work well under pressure when everything else is blowing up at the same time. This includes looking for a house (because we’re nuts) and caring for our sick kitty. Which brings me to the other topic: my kitty Dutch has been sick for about a month with what I thought was a serious ear infection. Come to find out, after a CT scan (a cat scan for a cat? whaaa?) he most likely has inop cancer. :/
So this week has been a struggle for me emotionally. Finding out about Dutch, trying to house hunt, and planning a wedding has just been overwhelming. And, to top it all off, I haven’t been able to run in almost a month now, as my hips started bothering me just before the Cherry Blossom 10-miler. I tried running through what I thought was just tightness for several more days and races before it finally became too much. While I plan to call a doctor, I just haven’t had the chance (kitties medical needs were first). I’m hoping to call next week and set up an appointment with someone at UPMC Sports medicine. Many of my friends recommended the place.
I will tell you that I am going ABSOLUTELY FREAKING NUTS not running. Running is like a drug for me; it helps me cope. Thankfully, I still have Yoga.
Well that’s about it right now. I hope that maybe soon I can get updating this page more frequently. I wish anyone running races this weekend the best of luck. :D
Better late than never: my running shirt I wore to support Boston today. With <3 from Pittsburgh.
Watching the Boston Marathon this morning. I love every aspect of this race. And, while it is amazing to see the elites run, it is the other competitors that are so inspiring.
Good luck to all who are running the race, including several of my friends from the Steel City Road Runners Club here in the ‘burgh.
I just registered for my first set of consecutive races: both a 5k and 10k. I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty excited about it. Plans are to definitely try for a sub-30 min 5k and then whatever is left will be spent cranking out the 10k.
I know it’s been a while since I posted anything beyond instagram photos. Life has been beyond hectic but it’s beginning to finally slow down a little bit. I’m hoping I can get on here and type up a few race recaps…as it has been a pretty epic race season for me.
I also plan to catch up on everyone else - so don’t mind me while I love all of your posts =)
