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!

Our weather has been crazy - 90 one day, 50 the next, sunny but most cloudy and lots of rain.

Sometimes 13 miles feels like a breeze and then 2 miles is torture.

I keep plugging along because I know when you stop, it's so hard to get it back.

I did miss the Dallas humidity a little bit when I was first running up in Boulder. I was chafing in places I never chafed, and I was worried something was wrong with my sports bras. Then the lightbulb went off and I realized there's no moisture in the air here.

Yes! I hated it for so long, but right now I'm embracing it over the 101 in Phoenix today!

Getting back to running is so hard!!! I am in the same boat. Just trying to put the time in while I struggle through it.

We've got this! It may not be pretty but we can get back into it. :)

My May was a roller coaster ride regarding the weather, but I think it's finally plateaued. Glad to hear you're rallying back! A huge incentive for me to keep it steady with my running is that I don't want to have to worry about finding my way back...not sure I'd have the strength to do it LOL

Amen. Don't stop! It's not fun to start from square one again.

I'm glad you are enjoying your time in VA (at least for the weather). I love that our East Coast is so full of greenery! Everything was blooming by last month.

I hear ya on the running thing. 2 miles has been a struggle lately here too and I have a feeling it's going to get worse as the heat and humidity rises (although I'm sure you're already use to that)!

I'm not looking forward to it- that's for sure. But it's not 101 today, so there's that!
