Running Makes Me Happy

I had a whole lot of marvelous this weekend. Life was good.


I had one of those runs yesterday that just make you so happy to have the ability to run. Easy 8.5 miles with me and nature. No gps or music.

The cool fall air made my lungs feel like a million bucks. I could’ve run forever!

I haven’t had a run like this since before cross country.

Words can’t describe how I felt!

Other weekend highlights: Cyber bowling! 


I may not have hit 100 in any of the games, but it was still a blast! I also went to see “Bad Grandpa”. Some parts were a little over the top, but otherwise it was hilarious!

Ran a Zombie Run. Read the recap here!

Went to Grandma and Grandpa’s for dinner. Roast beef… not my thing. Mashed potatoes and gravy and green beans for me. Originally I wasn’t going to let myself eat anything and just eat at home but I realized that was pointless because I love green beans.  Mashed potatoes were kind of a fear food for me too (starchy) and I beat that too – they were delish!

I also went to a pre-season basketball meeting. Practice starts next week!!

It was weird to not have plans filling up my whole weekend. I’m used to going from one thing straight to another. Pretty much all of November’s weekends are open to whatever happens. I’m liking it!

That’s it for today! 


  1. You’re so lucky to get that great fall foliage and the water!
