The Haps’

Sorry I haven’t been blogging much. It wasn’t for lack of free time. Nearly three months ago I got fired for the first time. Didn’t see that coming, but I decided to make the best of it, and soak up as much time with my kids, and do things that make me happy. The good news (or maybe it’s sort of sad) is that I just landed a new job! I am so grateful that I was able to make it through what started out as the scariest time of my life. Thanks to friends who let me work odd jobs, and to family for their endless belief in me.

Here is what I’ve been up to:

The struggle is real, my friends.

Thanksgiving

This post is obviously a bit late but here it goes anyways!

A few months ago I’d registered for the 26th annual thanksgiving day classic, held by the arizona road racers club. I figured a run would be a great way to start off turkey day. I’d be able to focus on everything I’m thankful for, such as my two legs that I will never take for granted, as well as earn a slice of pie at the same time! In fact the prizes for the winners happened to be just that…PIE.

I did horrible, in case you were wondering. I sort of hadn’t run at all really in the weeks leading up to this 5k. I was mostly relying on the bit of cardio I do during my personal training sessions to get me through, if you will. Out of like 1300 racers, I came in in like 1000th place haha. I shouldn’t laugh. Its not funny. Whatever. More motivation for next time.

Hey, Fat Girl.

I don’t care if you do anything else at all today, so long as you READ THIS POST.

It doesn’t have to be about running, necessarily. Make it about whatever part of you is insecure, and if you have no insecurities, make it about somebody you know or love, who might. I promise you, it will reduce you to tears, in a good way.
