We want to hear from you! Did April marathons bring May 5Ks? How was your month?

Don’t forget to link up with Erika, Marcia and me this week.


The Month of May

From a travel and business perspective: May was great!

From a mom perspective: May was pretty good!

From a running perspective: May was… well, it wasn’t too bad. I’m going to give it a solid C+ here.

The front half of the month was cold, wet and dreary and I was feeling the effects of a lot of travel packed into a couple of weeks. So I didn’t get out like I planned.

But I finally started getting back into the groove and I’m so glad I did.

It’s still a bit cool and gray and rainy around here, but I’m not complaining because there’s GREEN,y’all! And it’s not pushing 95 degrees on a daily basis. Ha.

It’s amazing how quickly I’m coming to embrace the humidity I once hated.

Keeping the temps in the 60s and 70s helps, so I thank you for that, Virginia.

I’m not breaking any speed records, and it’s still very hard for me to run right now. I feel so out of shape that I almost can’t stand it.

Gone are the days when running 2 miles was moderately effortless. I’m still struggling to get that comfort back, but hey, it is what it is.

I know that’s the process. The only way to not feel out of shape is to keep putting in the work.

I’ve also had an aha! moment this weekend through my brilliant friend, Nicole. She posted something on Facebook that spoke to me and I asked if I can hijack her idea.

Because she’s awesome, she responded that there’s always room for more bad asses in the world and I was welcome to join her in being a bad A this summer.

I like the sound of that.

So I’m going to write up what I have planned and share it when I get my head wrapped around it a little better. It’s a seed that was planted with- what else- something from Disneyland.

It always comes back to Disneyland with me, doesn’t it?

Yes, yes it does.

Hope you rocked through the miles in May!

Patty is a 40-ish mother of four living in Virginia. A bit geeky, sometimes sarcastic, lover of a candid confession. She's trying to love running, she swears. But much like her marathon, it’s taking a very long time. Ahem. She's searching for the perfect way to balance family, work, travel, and fitness. Perfect defined as high on fun, low on guilt.
