A Little Bit of Sunshine When Skies are Gray

Let me begin with my kick a$$ run last night… I was soooo inspired but the Boston Marathon that I  just had to go running! There’s just something about all the BOSTON LOVE yesterday that was soooo overwhelmingly awesome… I couldn’t help but not run…The sun was shining,  I felt great (In my crazy head I was Shalane Flannigan, in reality I probably looked like Donkey from Shrek…. ),  and I figured it would be my last seriously long run before my Long Island half marathon next weekend…. If I feel half as good next weekend as I felt yesterday than I will be fine… 



I’m glad that I got my long run in yesterday because the rest of the week is going to be crappy, rainy and windy, GREAT (insert sarcasm)!  So to brighten my day, this morning I was nominated for the sunshine award by Cat from Cat’s Mewsings.  She is relatively new to the blog scene, like me, and has a kick a$$ blog so be sure to check it out….

  1. I only went for a year… but I DID go to with Christian Siriano who won like the second season of project runway… and I mean we were like legit friends not like I just knew of him… (lol…. yeah that was totally a name drop).. Maybe one day I will have a running fashion line lol

  2. Holy crap you are amazing! What a great run! I love when everything goes perfectly like that. You are going to kill that race next weekend.

    Thank you so much for the lovely award! You made my day! 🙂 We have a couple things in common…I would eat sushi every day too, I also have a boat load of tattoos and a nose piercing. My closet is fairly color coordinated too!

    1. thank you… it felt great! I just hope my time next wk will reflect it….

      sushi is great because there are soooo many different kinds…. I love tatts, I;m itching for new ink and I LOVE LOVE my nose piercing… I got nervous bc I teach high school and I’m not trying to act like a high schooler I just think they are super cute! I color coordinate my closet so I can find things easier plus I just think it looks prettier..lol.

  3. I mean, why would you NOT color coordinate your closet? My roommate in college made me do mine as a Freshman, and now I have to have it in perfect order. Even on vacation, I coordinate it. It just makes sense.

      1. Totally brilliant. I mean, the color coordination saves me about 5 minutes every morning. That time adds up over almost 10 years. It makes picking out one of my ten black tank tops in the morning almost thoughtless.

  4. You are a girl after my own heart with your color coordinated closet and sushi obsession. Good luck next weekend. Given the crazy fast speed that you ran during your last long run, I have no doubt that your training has paid off. Thanks for the award. 🙂
