How To Get Over Being Lonely—hint, rum helps.

It happens to all of us. Yes, even the people who appear to have it all together …

Sometimes everyone needs a solid shove to their backside—

It’s 8:33 a.m. I’ve been awake for well over two hours … I should be running. I should be done with my run. I should be on to something new rather than stuck listening to my mind debate itself, anticipating the crappy weather that awaits me as soon as I step out my front door.

Secretly, I did flip off the village idiot …

I am a recovering fanatic. Really. I am. What? You’ve never heard the term before? OK. OK. I coined it but mark my words peeps, one day Oprah will do a show about people like me (that is if she ever does the smart thing and returns to hosting a talk show instead of running…

I have THUNDER THIGHS … Jealous??

“Envy comes from people’s own ignorance of, or lack of belief in their own gifts.” ~ Jean Vanier Oddly enough, jealousy isn’t an emotion I’ve often been afflicted with – I mean sure, when I was younger I used to wish I was part of The Royal Family … but then as years passed I wised…

For anyone who’s ever thought yoga a waste of time —

I am a runner. No, no, no. I am not running from the law or a rabid dog or the neighbor down the street who never, ever seems to shut up. The other kind — the kind that laces her shoes, takes off down the road for a few miles and sweats, a lot. I’ve always been a…

Why I talk to myself — and why you should try it!

I’m a talker. Not the kind that rattles on and on with the grocery clerk whilst she rings up my purchases. Not the kind that hangs out by the water cooler in my office building simply dying to tell someone about my weekend plans (or lack thereof). And most definitely not the kind that dials…

What goes best with a martini? A circle, of course.

I like circles. They’re neat little shapes with a beginning and an end that depending on how you look at one, can either standout or fade into the abyss of its shape. I don’t care for squares — never been a fan of right angles. I mean how boring is a right angle? (Totally boring!)…

Is it strange to prefer a Powerbar over a frittata?

I have always lived a fairly regulated life – well, maybe that’s not entirely true. I mean there were those first ten years where I lived as I wished … meaning I ate when I was hungry (imagine that), slept when I was tired, and with the exception of the occasional chore or school project…

Can you learn something great, from someone you never met?

“The battles that count aren’t the ones for gold medals. The struggles within yourself – the invisible, inevitable battles inside all of us – that’s where it’s at.” ~ Jesse Owens I haven’t faced too much adversity in my life. Not really. Not the kind of adversity that truly qualifies as so. Sure, I’ve had…

A coffee enema? Say what?

The first time I ran a marathon a woman I barely knew told me to give myself a coffee enema two days before the race. Say what? Uh hu. You read that right – a coffee enema. “It will clear you out so you don’t have to poop on the course,” she said. There’s a…

Some days you have it, some days you don’t …

“It’s nice to be wanted. To be longed for, at that …” OK. Wait. Sorry Daily Prompt, but I simply can’t adhere to today’s theme and write a post as if my coffee cup was the one doing the writing/talking. I can’t … my mind isn’t working right this morning. You know how some days…
