Time Once Again

...its Stream of Consciousness Saturday! I'm linking up with Jaime, you should too. All the cool kids are doing it!!!!

I should post a picture of me in my hipster-wanna-be glasses. Instead, I'm setting the timer for 5 minutes for a brain dump. Once of these days I might start a topic list for these posts. Let me know if there is some thing you'd like to add. For now however, buckle up and get ready to ride!

This evening I'm going to a friend's house for a t-shirt cutting party. Okay, that's not a real thing. I just made it up. But we are having dinner and cutting t-shirts.

Okay that was dumb. Stopping the timer and starting again.

While I was on vacation (Maine, by way of Maryland), I auto posted a blog about the last hike I took with my family for my grandfather's 82nd birthday. I'm excited to do another hike with them this weekend. I'm thankful that my family is healthy enough to hike, even if they go very, very slowly. After all, its not about the hike but enjoying the view and the company.

(Expecting my mother to call in 3 - 2 - 1: "Gee thanks Brooke")

Tonight I'm heading to over to Gvan's aka Pink Runner Girl to slice and dice a few PRG special shirts. We're running the Ragnar Relay next week with 10 other ladies, team name Girls Just Wanna Go Run. We're gonna deck ourselves out in 80s gear, off the shoulder t-shirts included.

Between church and the Ragnar team meeting, I need to squeeze in a long run. I've got 2 back to back (Saturday/Sunday) half marathons the following weekend and I missed my long runs on vacation.

Heck - I missed most of my runs on vacation. In a 2 week time period, I ran once - which included the day we got back. Thankfully my shorter runs haven't suffered. I'm hoping I can say the same for my long ones!

Confession: I just cheated and looked at the clock. I didn't have something in my head to say and I wanted to see how much more I needed to come up with. 11 seconds. Just about time this perfectly!!

Until next time...


  1. Can't wait to see those t-shirts! I think your run is going to go just fine. :)

  2. I am working at the expo for the Turkey Creek half on Friday from 5-8 maybe I'll actually get to meet you?

  3. Truth: I ran once in a two-week time period. I have a half marathon in two weeks. I ran a race today and hurt my calf, so my half marathon goals are little sketchy right now.

    I love your team name! That's a great one!! And thanks for linking up!

  4. I rarely run on vacation, despite my best intentions, so I get it. :) So fun to hear your thoughts!

  5. Back to back half marathons!?!? You go, girl!
