Happy Sunday! How Did Your Race(s) Go?

Hey y'all, how is your weekend going? I spent an event filled and exciting the day, Saturday, in bed watching movies and getting caught up on soap operas with family and friends on Facebook and Myfitnesspal dot com.

Today I woke early and made my way carefully to the kitchen to make some "liquid sanity", a.k.a coffee.  I spent some time reading my Bible (on my Ipod) and drinking said "liquid sanity".  After the kids woke up, I put them to my house for me, while I stood by like a psycho drill sergeant on crutches.  That was fun ☜(*▽*)☞.  I also cooked, for the first time in 18 days (not that I'm counting), waffles for the family while standing with crutches.  So after this boring as heck exciting fun filled morning I decided I had better sit down and relax so that I don't get myself in trouble with nurse ratchett, a.k.a my hubby set myself back in the healing department.

So here I sit and what should pop into my brain?  Well, I'll tell you...pssst, you should write a  an absolutely thrilling and award winning blog post and let your friends know what an exciting life you wish you lived actually live. Now you know, I dare you to top that! 

Finally in closing, tell me how your race(s) went this weekend or last weekend or even the weekend before that...ha ha ha, give me something people, if I can't run, at least tell me about your races ಥ_ಥ (<~tears).

Godspeed...this comes from the Middle English expression "God spede (you)", a wish for success and fortune for one setting out on an enterprise, voyage, adventure, or travels. It may also mean good luck.

  1. Shannon, thank you for your post on my blog. Today was kind of upsetting to say the least, but you are right.. I am doing this for ME, and me alone. I have worked hard to lose the weight and get where I am today and I won't give up. Thank you for the encouragement! God Bless ya! Weez (

  2. Love the term "liquid sanity"!

    I don't have any races to tell you about because it's too darn hot in Florida for races now. OK, there are some, but I'm not doing any until October. :c)

    1. Jina, sounds like a wise decision...blessings

  3. No races...but I ran 3 times...very very slow but for me, it was great. Speed will come and if not, better slow than not doing it at all. HEAL FAST!!

  4. No races but I had two very wonderful rides. I did manage to run about a minute on the treadmill Monday before I met my personal trainer to work on issues related to my Achilles tendon. Yesterday, I went with a friend to the Seattle airport to pick up her new puppy. 2 hours in a car with a puppy in my lap...pretty awesome.

  5. Even if you cannot run now you are always a runner! Swimming will help you to be ready when you will be able to run again.
    Yes, last sunday I raced in the Eternal City!

  6. Glad to see your sense of humor is in tact! I did the first two legs of a triathlon but let a friend do the run. Soon you will be out running again!


I'm so happy you stopped by...can't wait to hear all you've got to say! Blessings and hugs!
