Oh hey…

I’m still recovering from a busy (and super fun!) weekend away in Amherst. We get Friday off in my office for Easter and I’m so excited to do some relaxing. As a textbook introvert, I need so much time to recharge after being really active.

On an exciting note, I’m going to my first shift volunteering with kitties at a Petsmart through the humane society tonight! I’ve only worked in shelters before, so it should be interesting in a much more customer-facing situation. Also, kitties.  photo1

FINALLY

It has warmed up for real! Of course, my eyeballs are also itchy so that’s a clear sign it’s spring. But I’ll take the allergies if I can leave my windows open at home and sleep without bundling up. I didn’t like my outfit photos today, so here’s a look at what I’ll be wearing this weekend. I’m heading to Amherst this weekend with Jeremy (we’ll be celebrating one year together WOAH) and some friends and we’re going to get our hippie music fest and UMass wanderings on. I’m SO excited!!

Running Again

Remember that time I ran a 10k last summer? Then decided to train for a half marathon I never did because I got injured? Yeah, me too. I kept up a low level of fitness over the winter and maybe a month or so ago I just decided to sign up for a 5 mile race. It’s not a 10k, and I can do at least 3 miles, so OBVIOUSLY I can do 5… right? So it’s fair to say I did not think this through. However in the week leading up to the race I had an epiphany about the Achilles tendon pain I’d been having — I realized the cause was being just a bit too short for my chair at work. I’m a fidgety person in general, and I think I got a new/different chair sometime last summer, which may have resulted in a difference that was just enough to cause my tendon to be out of whack. I bought a foot rest and that whole week everything started to feel better.

I was lucky that on race day Jeremy decided to pace with me since he had done almost 20 miles on trails (and fought a bear) the day before. It was a ton of fun, despite being a bit chilly, and we got cool race shirts. Post race this morning, after completing the 5 miles at a respectable 11 minute pace, I feel sore but not debilitated. Hooray! I won’t start raising my expectations too much for my fitness, but I’d say another 10k race might be in my future in another month or two.

Today’s outfit is nothing special. After getting sushi post race and feeling really great (too great), everything started to catch up with me. I napped on my futon and then went to hang out while Jeremy and Corey made beer. A few hours later (barely 6pm) I was mostly asleep on my feet and decided to head home while I could still make it. A hazy evening and verrrryyy early bedtime still left me kind of out of it this morning. One day I want to be at the level where even 10 (okay, maybe 8) miles wouldn’t leave me destroyed for days. But for now, baby steps.

Sunrise…

Singing In The Heights:

No outfit today. Enjoy a lovely sunrise picture. And some thoughts from Ron Swanson AKA Nick Offerman AKA the person I kind of want to grow up to be.

“With all of the visual distraction constantly inundating us in the form of our devices and screens, I really derive a great deal of pleasure from watching the sun rise and set, admiring clouds as they change shape across the sky, watching tree leaves and blossoms undulate in the breeze….these treats foment an ocular-cleansing refreshment to my way of thinking.”

Chop Chop

As mentioned yesterday, I got a haircut finally. I have little patience with long hair and all my layers had grown out. So I chopped off a few inches and got some parted bangs. They weren’t really cooperating this morning, and they’re a littttttle shorter than I hoped, so they got the pins. All in all though I’m pretty happy with the result. Even busted out my purple party pants.

From yesterday immediately post cut – apologies for the face… despite the whole taking a picture of my outfit daily thing, I’m not big on the selfies. photo 1

Forcing My Hand

So you could call today a bad hair day… but I’ve been digging my heels in on getting a haircut for a while now, and this picture was the clincher. My hair is just too long and unstyled, and it desperately needs to be cut. Literally right after I looked at the pictures at work I made a hair appointment for this afternoon. I love doing random and major changes to my hair, but I need to get a cut that requires virtually no work. That means I need to maintain a decent cut so I can wash it, let it dry and call it a day. Anyway. Tomorrow will hopefully show something new!
