Sometimes, when you love something, it’s hard to see how old and worn out it’s become. You remember the good old days when everything was new and full of energy, and you stubbornly cling to the thought that the aging decline is just your imagination. Surely there are a couple more good years left, aren’t […]
I only had a couple of miles on the books today. Actually – let me digress right here in the first sentence – I don’t even have a “book” going right now. I stopped using any kind of a training schedule last year when I wasn’t sure what each day would bring me, and I […]
Weekend Update – My First Linkup!
It’s true – I’ve been blogging for almost five years and even though I’ve thought about it lots of times, I’ve never actually participated in a blogger linkup! So here goes nothing. I’m linking up with Running ‘n Reading for the Weekend Update. It’s a little sad, really, that this is my first link up, […]
#NoExcuses2015 – It’s a Mad(Lib), Mad, Mad, Mad World!
Hey 2015, it’s me, Pahla B! Marcia from Marcia’s Healthy Slice tagged me to play along…This year I would like to kick ass and take names. It would also be super duper awesome if I did not get anemia this year. It’s not a resolution, though, just a reminder to myself to try and have the best year yet because life is […]
Badass, or just plain crazy? It’s a fine line.
The other morning at my bootcamp, we were talking about… something. Honestly, I don’t remember how the conversation veered into the topic of being someplace early, but one of my campers asked, “Regular people early, or Pahla early?” Everyone laughed, and another camper remarked that my habit of running in the wee morning hours is […]
Making, Revising and Revisiting Goals. Because, You Know, 2015.
I really do enjoy the start of a new year. It feels so fresh and full of possibilities – like anything could happen this year, if I’m willing to work for it. I do not have any silly notions of flinging myself willy-nilly into the future with abandon. I’m too skeptical for that kind of […]
Stickin’ a Fork in 2014
I know it’s not quite done (and I was just saying how I needed eleven more days), but I’m ready to wrap up 2014. I hit my slightly revised mileage goal for the year on Sunday! So, now I’m just cruising into 2015 and basking in the gloriousness that was this (nearly) past year. I […]
Learning to Run
I don’t think of myself as an inherently patient person. I hate to stand in line. I’m remarkably unpleasant to be around while I’m waiting to heal from an injury. And I’ve been known to grumble about how damn long the microwave is taking to cook something. So you might be surprised at how many […]
Better Than Good
I thought for sure I’d be a complete wreck after Sunday’s race, but you know what? I feel good. I feel like the title of this post! With one teeny, tiny exception, that hurts more than you might expect from how small it is: For the love of Pete, would somebody PLEASE remind me to […]
Reflections of a Long Distance Runner
When I set out for my long run this morning, I was feeling a little pensive. Not sad or worried, mind you, just thoughtful. Last weekend was a “milestone” birthday for me (45!) and yesterday was the last race of my kids’ Cross Country season, so I was thinking a lot about endings and beginnings […]
