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

and it’s been awhile since I could hold my head up high

and it’s been awhile
since I first saw you
and it’s been awhile
since I could stand on my own two feet again
and it’s been awhile
since I could call you

and everything I can’t remember
as fucked up as it all may seem
the consequences that I’ve rendered
I’ve stretched myself beyond my means

and it’s been awhile
since I can say that I wasn’t addicted
and it’s been awhile
since I can say I love myself as well
and it’s been awhile
since I’ve gone and fucked things up just like I always do
and it’s been awhile
but all that shit seems to disappear when I’m with you

and everything I can’t remember
as fucked up as it all may seem
the consequences that I’ve rendered
I’ve gone and fucked things up again

why must I feel this way
just make this go away
just one more peaceful day

and it’s been awhile
since I could look at myself straight
and it’s been awhile
since I said I’m sorry
and it’s been awhile
since I’ve seen the way the candles light your face
and it’s been awhile
but I can still remember just the way you taste

and everything I can’t remember
as fucked up as it all may seem to be I know it’s me
I cannot blame this on my father
he did the best he could for me

and it’s been awhile
since I could hold my head up high
and it’s been awhile
since I said I’m sorry

Today’s Run!!

Saturday, June 15! As I’ve posted before, my 8K run is a circuitous route, and the halfway point falls beautifully (and perfectly) at a center of sorts. Don’t want to be too descriptive, divulging anything … there’s many community activities/events held here throughout the year … and Saturday morning during the summer months, it’s bustling. Today, I knew beforehand (least, it’s what I planned, sometimes my body doesn’t co-operate – tells me differently), I was going to run hard for 4K and hopefully set a solid time, then stop, walk around, see what was going on … taking pics of today’s fun. There was obstacle courses/races being set-up for little kids to participate. Later on, there was a FREE BBQ planned … like I said, very strong community minded participation indeed. What I didn’t realize (at first anyways – halfway through, I knew I was onto a great time) was that I would stop the RunKeeper clock in 18:18 … my fastest 4K split EVER! And afterwards on the second half of my run, I was planning on taking it relatively easy, was hoping to be home in 20 minutes … but after my first one kilometer interval, was extremely surprised that I was running faster than I thought (my audio cue had me at a whopping 1.08 kilometers after 5 minutes), in fact it was equal to the pace to my eighteen-eighteen time. Plan B: The wheels in my head are turning … now, suddenly I’m on a mission to try my best to match that time … after the second interval, I knew I wasn’t quite going to make it, but it STILL didn’t stop me from continuing trying … and I came home in 18:50 … still very respectable – and combined, puts me at just over 37 minutes for the complete run … not too shabby, eh?
