Angry Runs

Apparently anger is my new running fuel. Who knew?

Why so angry? School. Home. Life. Etc. That's why.

However, this focused anger seems to have made for two awesome runs this week.

Wednesday: 3 miles on the treadmill at the gym because of it being too cold and damp for my wimpy butt to run outside. Time: 29:43! Oh yea!

Today: 6 miles on the not-as-sloppy trail. There was a good mile there that was still covered in snow and made running darn near impossible. I'm lucky I didn't sprain an ankle or tear something! But Bentley and I made it in 1:06:18. Not bad considering we both needed bathroom breaks :)


OOOOOH!!!! Giveaways!!!!

Run, Zoe, Run is hosting a GU giveaway! I'm a huge GU fan. Partially because most flavors are Gluten Free (a necessity in my celiac-world) and mostly because they are delicious! The Chomps! are my favorites because I'm too chicken to try the gels. But I guess I'm going to have to if I win this giveaway :)

I didn't win the sleeves, but 5 Miles Past Empty is still hosting the CEP Compression Socks giveaway! I really need a pair of these. I'm going to use the coupon she has posted to order a pair for Husband and I and hope that I win a pair in the process :)

Happy Running!


  1. Great job on the "angry runs!" Anger definitely helps me run faster/longer too. Way to channel it!
    And thanks for the GU shout-out!

  2. Wow, great job on your runs!And i hear ya on being "angry"...hopefully it fades soon. :)

  3. I run way better when I have adrenaline from being angry. And it is usually work for me too...

  4. I figure whatever works. And anger usually does =)

  5. Those run times are amazing. Maybe getting angry isn't all bad!

    Don't feel bad about running on the treadmill, that's all I ever do. I haven't been game enough to go outside yet and I have a fun run in just over 7 weeks. I'm such a scaredy cat xx

  6. P.S. I forgot to mention that I have seen The Mask, but again it was many years ago. I am sure that if I watch it again, there will be a lot about it that I find really funny. I love Dumb and Dumber as well, my sister said that the movie was not funny at all - I think there is something wrong with her!!

    Now I know it's horrible to laugh at a blind person, but when that boy was sitting there patting that dead budgie "pretty bird" I couldn't stop laughing xx
