Welcome back to another "What I mean when I say..." Today we are looking at a pretty silly topic. What do I mean when I say "I'm athletic"? Surprisingly, this seems to be a controversial topic for me. I'm either met with "Oh, you like exercising" or "What do you lift? How fast do you… Continue reading “I’m athletic”
This week's blog will look at my writing but not the actual words. We'll be looking at the reasons why I write. If I'm being honest, there are too many for me to actually cover. However, if I'm really honest about what keeps me coming back to a blank page (or even one with a few squiggles… Continue reading Why Do I Write?
The short answer is yes. The long answer is a sassy question back at you: I don't know are you? Though it's a little reminiscent of a teacher asking a student "can you", it does bring up a good point. Do you think you are a runner? This is something a lot of people, runners… Continue reading Am I Runner?
Running is hard. We know that. It takes effort, our heart rate goes up, our breathing is labored, blah blah. We know that. But what if I said that stopping is the hard part of running?

Not everything has to be for profit or gain, does it? Are we Ferengi all of a sudden? We can do things just for fun. But do we? No, not really. In our lives, it's very easy to allow a sense of obligation to domineer our activities. We easily allow our focus to shift from enjoying something… Continue reading Do It For Fun
Hot button issue here! Well, if you're a runner at least. If you're not, this may not seem like such a controversial issue. But it is. And it's about to get heated. My view? Don't run with music. But let's get into it before I'm persecuted. Okay, so you're a runner. Which means you run and you might even… Continue reading Running: With or Without Music?
What do I mean when I say, "I'm busy"? It seems pretty straightforward, doesn't it? But it's not quite all that it seems.
Well, well. An extra article this week...*Starring a special feathered nurse* Before we get going, there's someone I want to introduce you to. Meet Patterick. He's staring in today's article. He's a cockatiel who loves to preen and scream. He's a lovable little thing who just wants to sit on your shoulder. All. The. Time.… Continue reading How To Help A Cold
Meet Avocado. This is my running mascot. He's actually an adorable dog toy my husband got me for Christmas. After moving him around from shelf to shelf, he landed on my running journal and I knew then that he was going to be my Running Avocado. He became my mascot! All right, I get it.… Continue reading Running Journal (And Mascot)
