The blogging made me sick

It had to have been the random blog post, because nothing else was different.  Yesterday morning, I woke up with food hangover (or so I thought), because I ate allthedessert.  I had a brilliant plan to wake up, go to my 8:30 am dentist appointment, go for my 5-miler from the dentist’s (conveniently located 5 steps from local trail), shower, go get Megan from the airport, have lunch with a friend who I haven’t seen in AGES, and go see a couple of friends play at a local bar. 

I should have known it would all go wrong when I got to the dentist’s and the receptionist told me, “oh, we have you down for 9:30!”  Ok, really no biggie, I’ll just run now.   So I did.  And I felt craaaaappy, but again, suspected food hangover, right?  I came back to sit through the not-enough-flossing lecture and then drove home.  Where I HAD TO LAY DOWN NOW OR I WILL DIE OMG, but I had to go get Megan.  So I jumped in the hot hot hot shower (should have known…why can’t I get warm?), came downstairs, took one look at my husband and realized there was no way in hell I was going to the airport because I couldn’t really see him anymore.  I was quite literally blacking out. 

Cue the rest of the day: wishing (out loud) to die, so that the pain would stop.  The stomach cramps, the head pounding, the fact that every square inch of my body hurt.  I had some very interesting fever dreams – like the one where my legs just needed to build the David sculpture? – but really, that was a 24 hours I could have done without, ya know? 

I’m better today, but am more tired than I was post-marathon, which is a super bummer, because I was having a hard enough time staying motivated to run lately.  I don’t need anymore reasons to sit on my butt.  But I guess I’ll take this one and maybe just blog some more?


Hey. Look at me.

Blogging and stuff.  Sorta. 

You guys.  (if you’re still there)  I have no excuses.  I’m lazy.  All I’ve been doing lately is depending on everyone else in blogland to entertain me, and I’ve not returned the favor – although, I can almost guarantee that no one I’m reading has linked back to me.  But just in case there’s anyone out there who still cares, here’s what’s up (cripes, the bullets…again. I’m sorry):

*teaching: doing it. Love two of my classes, tolerate the other three.

*momming: doing it. Love all three, want to kill one, tolerate the other two. 

*wifing: doing it.  Love the one. Don’t want to kill him.  Today.

*running: doing it, when I want to.  Not doing it when I don’t.  My marathon in Arizona was A-MAZE-balls and I’m not sure where I want to go with that.  I SO want to BQ (that’s “Boston Qualify” if you’re like most of my irl friends and don’t know the lingo), but that’s a loooong 7 minutes, especially when I already have other travel plans for the fall. 

*the rest of life: well…I’m working on it.  I’ve been pretty disconnected from friends and family, which has given me time to work on my kids and hub.  I’ve been slacking on reading. I’ve been traveling like a fiend.  I baked today and it was holy YUM.  I need to do more of that. 

So, that’s it.  I’ll try harder, y’all.  Here, look…I’ll post an actual PHOTO. From my race.  Where I seriously loved running.Image  Don’t I look happy?  🙂
