You guys have really helped me get closer to my goal digit!

So close!

So close!

I’m super pumped about the Chicago Marathon. It’s really helped inspire my runs this week. Starting with a 12 miler with WRRC.

The next day I did some hill repeats on my run. Why not?

Looks like a bunny-camel.

And of course, I have to follow it up with yoga to help keep me centered and strong.

Caption says it all.

I can’t spell gud, butt at least I finally kept my tongue in my mouth. Yeah, it’s Snapchat – add me: piratebobcat

What else is inspiring this week – oh yeah, watching the Boston Marathon! I especially loved stalking tracking all my friends who were there. Y’all did some amazing times! Including my man Logan, who rocked a 2:31! Yes, that’s a full 26.2 in 2:31!

So there it is. Rockin and rollin! Keepin on and remaining calm. Bring it on, brah!

Scab Watch 2014!

When I say “scab watch” I’m not talking about a timepiece made of dried blood, that’d be odd.  And I’m not talking about checking out people who take over for people on strike.  That’d be bizarre.  I am, of course referring to my dinged up knee.

If you follow this blog then you know that the other week I took a tumble on my run and broke my fall with my knee.  It got all swol and bloody.  Well, I promised myself I wouldn’t even attempt to run again until at least the scabs heal.

I’m happy to announce that they’re healing just fine.  The scabs aren’t completely gone, but they are getting there.  Hopefully the rest my knee is getting is all it needs to get all better.

You’ll notice there are no photos in this post.  I didn’t want to gross anyone out (or turn on any weird fetish people) with pics of scabby knees.  So you’re welcome (or I’m sorry).

Hows bouts yous guys?  Who’s excited for Scab Watch ’14?!?!  Anyone else have any boo-boos they’re nursing?
