It seems I've been at a loss for words lately.
No really. I've sat down multiple times to write a blog post only to sit and stare at a blank screen.
I have stuff to say, a lot of stuff actually but I just can't get it out. Like in real sentences and stuff.
Can you have writers block when you blog? Bloggers Block?
Maybe that's it, I have a bad case of bloggers block.
Or possibly I just didn't know where to begin after being away so long. A lot's happened in the time I was gone.
Welp, just like a training plan won't run its self, a blog won't write itself either.
You gotta jump in and start.
Let's start with my running, shall we? Some major epicness happened over Christmas break. Like major.
I mean if it hadn't been Christmas break, I would have dedicated 3,256 words, twice as many exclamation points and probably an entire week of posts to my love of all things running.
|I know these aren't Saucony's. Gasp!|
I'll dedicate a post to that later.
And this seemed as good a place as any to try them out. I've never run this part of the McDowell Mountains before. It is stunning.
|Danelle making it to the top!|
The harder the climb, the greater the reward.......I mumbled some crap like that to myself as I was walked/cursed my way to the top. ;-)
This was such a rewarding and punishing run. I loved every freaking minute! It was the gift that kept on giving too. I was sore for like 2 days after. Haha I cursed every time I had to move ;-)
In other news: My new trail shoes are going in my will. It's true love.
Then this happened. My last long run before the marathon.
Which is a week away!!
This 23 miler was a major confidence booster. I am so stoked to race next Sunday.
aaand another trail running pic. It seemed fitting to ring in the new year with my new love.
You complete me. :-)
