Marathon Monday: I made it…and then I fell

Yes, my dear friends. I have finally hit the BEAUTIFUL stage of addiction where I can say that I love running.

Up until Thanksgiving, I pretty much had to MAKE myself run. It was not fun to start. It was not always fun to keep running…but there is a beautiful, addictive quality about running that you encounter when you stick with it long enough. And I can safely say I have hit that point!

On my “days off” this week I felt like I wanted to go run! Yes, I think I’m going to make it.

You can do anything you set your mind to! Just write it down and keep your goal in sight! This is what I see every single time I sit down at my desk:


Oh…did you say it’s Tuesday and not Monday? =) The picture you see below explains why Marathon Monday did not go up on Monday…because I had an invincible moment yesterday where I tried to fly. Seriously, what was I thinking? I tried to jump over our ottoman which blocks the bottom stair (so Annabelle won’t crawl up) to grab my phone cord to POST THIS PIC and I landed on my shin on a piece of wood and broke it in two. I clearly haven’t run hurdles since 2005. Embarrassing and probably one of the most painful things I have ever experienced. (Another shout out to my awesome neighbors who came over and rescued my screaming children, got me ice and ibuprofen and helped out until Kevin got home!) Kevin thought someone died by the texts I was sending…oops, sorry honey. I’ll be less dramatic next time. 🙂


I am SO THANKFUL it wasn’t broken!! Here’s to another week on the streets! (uh…I mean treadmill!) It still hurts pretty bad…the bruise is a good 6″x 3″ and my arm has some good ones too…but I should be okay to run right?
