Who Wants To Do Something Fun?

Well…Are You?

Here’s the thing.  I want to be a runner.  Like I don’t actually enjoy getting up at the crack of dawn to get out and run.  During the process I’m uncomfortable.  My feet hurt.  My legs hurt.  I can’t breathe normally.  Sometimes my back starts to hurt.  After I’m done?  I love it.  I feel

10 Songs I’ve Been Running To

I think a good playlist is essential to running life.  I listen to songs that I normally don’t listen to when I run.  I kind of feel like I need to listen to songs that make me want to get in a fight.  They seem to give me a little more energy.  It’s probably all in

Home Again

I start house-sitting this weekend.  I’ve kind of gotten out of the business except for family.  Didn’t know I was in the business?  Well, I was.  I was pretty active in it, and really good at it.
