I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

running. running and nothing more.

Plain ‘n simple, easy peasy post. I became a runner 6 months ago. I have plenty of thoughts on the subject, but for now, I wanna keep my lip-zipped … a kinder, gentler danistrulytheman being careful not crushing tender tippy-toes. I’ve become a regular peruser of blogposts, and I’ve learned SO much from so many (ok, actually, only a few), but lately I’ve become disillusioned with it all. Firstly, why do bloggers feel it’s their plagiarist-punk-ass right to steal use photos/shots/pics that aren’t theirs? It’s blatant too, purposely borrowing eye-catching visuals, along with their cutesy captions, hoping to suck you in … but, as quickly as I see it, I just as quickly tune out. Bloggers with agendas – ain’t nothing new to me, I get it … but RUNNING bloggers? You mean even THAT’S not exempt? How low can you mofos go … shit’s blasphemous!

112 113 Run

Today’s date. Love playing with numbers – changing the way you look at things.

My first run in five days, I’ve been fighting a cold/flu thingie, but I woke-up determined to give it a try. I really didn’t know what to expect, and my goal was to complete my 8K, not paying attention to my time (too much – sick or not, I’m still anal, lol), and about 3 kilometers in, felt I’d be able to accomplish it. Ten minutes later, I seriously began thinking of running a 10K, but, I would make that decision as I neared home. I always feels it’s better to think of it in advance, at least that way, I’m prepared mentally to continue. And, I did … another 47 minute 10K, almost identical to my run on November 12th. My 5K splits were equal – actually, I was 2 seconds faster on the backend. By all rights, I shouldn’t have been able to achieve this! I’m sick, missed so many days of training, yet I amaze myself. As I said in my previous post, if I were to achieve 47 minutes in an official 10K, I’d be very pleased. Today, I say it again!

chicken noodle soup – in a pinch!

… emphasis on noodles! Feeling sick, under the weather, whipped this up without stopping at the grocery store. Had all I needed at home. Those are Hungarian egg noodles (sorry, no pic) from Starsky Fine Foods, they’re thin and short – like needles, when dry, but as you can see, really plump and sop up broth when cooked. Speaking of broth, that’s organic chicken broth I had in the pantry, PLUS I had organic baby kale in the fridge so I tossed that in as well. I like finishing with grated cheese (Romano Lupa), and hot sauce, today I went with good ole Tabasco. A few pics y’all!
