A Serious Break and a Lindsay Lohan.

It’s been quite a while since I blogged anything. (I know my three followers are having withdrawals right about now. lol). This is because I am taking a break from running. This break is not by choice. It’s because I have another break. My foot. The second metatarsal to be exact. Turns out that pain I was feeling during the Marine Corp Half Marathon was a little worse than I thought.  It was more like a bone snapping and the broken parts grinding against each other (fragmenting one end of the break) until one piece became displaced enough to alleviate some of the pain.
So this is what I will be doing the entire summer. Sitting on my ass………

I haven’t been a completely lost soul since the incident occurred. I have taken to LOTs of ankle weights, core work, and free weights sitting down. This way I will keep my stability muscles strong and ready for action as soon as I get the go-ahead. I have tried some swimming as well. I have to go REALLY slow because any kicking irritates my foot.
As distraught as I am that I am missing out on running, ESPECIALLY with all the fabulous weather we have been having. I am enjoying a little bit more free time. Every weekend I would plan my activities around my long run. Now, there are no alarms and that is pretty awesome. I have also had much more time with this little girl….
She just learned to ride with no training wheels. We cannot get her off this bike:-)

My little girl is a fish in water. I put her in swim when she was three and she just took off. She's currently trying to teach me proper form.

No summer is complete without ooey gooey smores!
Oh! And I decided to buy a new car. My old car was not too bad to me. So I didn’t have power steering for almost a year….guess what? My biceps are rocking. Seriously. You don’t want tickets to this showJ
Last week it turned on me though. I went to open my driver’s side door and ripped the damn handle off! I mean, who does this even happen to? I had to climb in the passenger door and over the middle console in the short jean skirt I decided to try and look cute in that day. That wouldn’t have been too terrible except for the fact I had that damn boot on and it got stuck….totally pulled a Lindsay Lohan…..I decided that I had earned the right to a new car.   


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your foot. :( Never fun, especially when the weather is nice. Keep some febreeze handy for the boot, it gets sweaty in the summertime.

    1. Thanks! I've noticed this! At least I was given one that is removable so I can take it off and shower!

  2. Oh, Laura. I'm so sorry. Time will heal all wounds. Hang in there!!
