Back to the Regularly Scheduled Program

Well, this has been a looong two weeks. I was in New York for work last week, then segued straight into having a house-guest all the way through, well, yesterday. I'm tired! Tired of  days of cleaning up after people, seeing them zone out when the conversation isn't about them, the lack of a good conversation, sweeping out a kitchen and den full of crumbs, chicken and sweet potatoes, picking someone else's baby food out of my car after they don't ask if they can have food IN my car in the first place (oh wait - something horrible might happen to the baby if it doesn't eat for 15 minutes), throwing away old food left out and full cups of coffee (into a trash can 3 feet away- the food, not the coffee), scrubbing stains out of the kitchen island, an apparent aversion to coasters (because wood and drinks mix SO well together), steam cleaning a weird poopy smell out of the upstairs carpet, (I could go on, but I won't, I don't want to get myself all worked up again- and I'm plenty worked up), and ready to get back to life as I've known it for the past 5 months. That is, work, hanging out with my awesome bf, friends, training, and races (both the BMX and the running kind).

I wasn't able to get a long run or much of anything in for the past two weekends, so I'm a little worried about my upcoming half-marathon. I also see it as not being a full marathon, so I'm at least going to be okay when I cross the finish line. Runner problems.  I'm hoping to get in a few miles this week before the race, just to shake out my legs and get things moving again, if nothing else.

With a little preview of some snow last week which both amazed and freaked me out, I signed up for four months of unlimited treadmill time through MindBody. I'm excited to have a Woodway to train on for the winter, and it'll get me out of the house on those super cold midwestern days. I also decided to write my first article on LinkedIn about non-linear career paths and their upward prevalence in the job world; you can read it here if you like. I'm looking forward to getting back on track, as well as reading more and continuing to blog. I've found that it's rather calming. So with that, I will leave you with the most anti-Monday picture I can find. My boyfriend sent it to me and it makes me smile, so hopefully it will make you smile as well. I'm not sure where it's from or I would cite the source, so if anyone knows I'm all ears. Here it is! My two favorite animals ever. Traveling.

So cute!
