I’m a terrible tumblrer

So after a huge hiatus from the tumblr world, I am back. I have a lot to update on and I plan to do just that - update update update. But…not right now. I’m on the last half hour of my mid shift and well, I would ramble like a blogger after too many drinks.

I hope all of you are well. I hope I can catch on some of your awesome stories…especially those running stories. I miss running like I used to.

To Be Continued…

My first race as Alicia Miller and I got a major award.

Life has been a whirlwind.

Okay…last I left you all it was 28 days until the wedding. Well…now it’s 29 AFTER the wedding and boy has the time flown by. Needless to say, the closer I got to the wedding, the less time I had for extra activities like checking and posting on Tumblr. Not only were we still doing the final touches for the wedding, but we were also moving all of our stuff into the house. This includes everything from Mark’s business, where our furniture from his house was stored, to everything in my apartment.

But before I get too far I do want to say that the bridal shower and bachelorette party went off without a hitch.

Of course I wore a tiara ;-)

Those three weeks between the shower/bachelorette may have gone by as fast as the day of the wedding. It’s hard to even go back and reflect on it. I will say that in that time between my last post and the shower, I did decide to defer my marathon entry for the Marine Corps Marathon. While my physical therapy was going great and I was getting all of my long-runs in, I knew that going forward…from the shower to the wedding, that it would be a struggle. I was supposed to run 12 miles the day of my wedding. I knew, despite my best efforts, that it wouldn’t happen. So I decided to defer and look forward to the Disney Marathon.

Since a separate post will be made for the wedding, I will say that since the wedding I’ve graduated from PT and I went on my Disneymoon (we’re calling it that because we were still hoping to go somewhere new and different for our honeymoon and we had already planned to go to Disney before the wedding date was solidified). It is nice to have the stress of wedding planning behind me but I will tell you, it goes by sooooo fast. The whole wedding itself was a blur and now it’s almost a month later! I’ve started training for the Disney Marathon and so far, it’s going ok. I haven’t had any pain or issues.

Oh yea, and there is this little government shutdown going on…that has effected me a bit and almost made me come home early from Disney! Since I am an essential employee I continue to work without being paid. Sucks when you spend almost all of your savings on a wedding to have this now happen. I’m trying to take one day at a time.

But, that’s it for now. Like I said, I’ll post separately about the wedding, including awesome pictures and mad vendor props ;-)

I am now Mrs Miller!

This is what nightmares are made of…

I Love Tumblr Because…

When we struggle, we all struggle together.

I’ve been struggling with a lot of things lately. Running, eating right, stress, sleep, etc etc. It’s good to have others out there to turn to, even if it is “oh hey look, they’re going through it too”.

That Awkward Moment When…

you realize your old high school crush is an internet celebrity and now you see his face everywhere.

Quick…someone has to have a meme for this!?
