i signed up for my first half marathon. i have great friends. what more do you want to know? (but read it anyway.)
19.2 is the number of miles I ran in the month of May. Goal for June: 30. With 10k training, it shouldn’t be too hard to get there!
never can be sure.
i’m having a day (or a weekend), so just bare with me… i never can be sure if i am a friend or if i am a convenience. i never can be sure if i am doing what i should be doing. what could i be instead? i never can be sure if i am convincing myself to think one way instead of another. i never can be sure if i will ever find what i am looking for. but i know that i will take...
All I can tell you today is what I have learned. What I have discovered as a...– Amy Poehler, Harvard’s 2011 commencement (via birdwings)
such a phenomenal song. giovannyg: Arcade Fire...
i can pretend like i am incredibly strong and nonchalant about it… but i really wish i wasn’t alone. let me be clear on what that means: i want people to be glad to see me. i want someone to hope to see me. i want the company of a gentleman. i don’t want a boyfriend. just a friend who is there. or here, rather. i want to not feel insignificant compared to others. i want...
i truly believe...
what i said this weekend: if you’re truly a classy lady, you won’t have to say it. people will just know.
i remember you said:
sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes, it hurts instead.
you can count on me.
i wonder how people feel it is appropriate to lie. more often than i’d like to admit, people like to make up stories about things, and i think it’s silly. BE HONEST. what’s it going to hurt to be honest about something and tell people what you really think? stop sugar coating things, and just say what you feel. if i can’t count on you, let me know now. you can count on...

one-twenty-five: the number on the scale means nothing how the stretch marks on my hips mean I’m human how the number on my pants is just that, a number that my stomach can’t dictate my day how my body is working with me, not against me
this has been one of my favorite seasons of biggest loser. i think it’s partly because of the purple team. i think i relate to them because their starting weight was just a little heavier than i was when i graduated college. i have a love-hate relationship with biggest loser every time a season ends. it’s really for the same reason - they have come so far and made such great strides...

rulesforthesouthernlady: Every, single opinion you have does not have to be verbalized. Think carefully and pick your battles wisely. Is expressing this opinion really worth starting drama and causing a scene? Probably not.
i want to, but should i?
i had a super great run last night. it was awesome. a little stiff in my right calf but overall it was encouraging. last night before i went to sleep, my daydreams (which usually impact night dreams) were all about running and how i felt that soon i will be able to run miles and miles. i had a dream about running against one of our elite athletes. this morning i even considered running at...
i don’t usually go to the bar because i don’t have friends to join me. tonight i went to the bar and met ron. he was cute and said he was attracted to me. even if it was just drunk i think it was funny.

We run. →
bendoeslife: We run because we have to. We run to go fast, and we run to go far. We run to break the tape; we run just to finish. We run for fun when no one’s around. We run to get inverted V muscles above our kneecaps. We run to get the regular V above our hips. We run to clear our mind. We run because…
