high five

a day late, BUT we were busy celebrating the big  f i v e  with red balloons, rock climbing and brownies and "milkboxes". i can't believe my little cooper is five! the first one to make me a proud auntie will always be a favorite, and he's pretty much got my heart for that. wishing you all things wonderful cooper dude - we love you!

weekend wonders

it was a beautiful weekend and i ran my ass off. it was wonderful. i did manage to catch some of sunday on the iphone though...spent a few hours with the linder's: donuts, babies and sunshine. ended the evening with a visit to the young men's democratic club on 11th street...yes, it was awesome.

we're running for boston tonight - come and join in if you're in the reading area.

i went for a run.

i wrote about three posts and deleted them all. i mean, what is there really to say...this one hit home. the week has been spent spending extra time on the trails and with running friends as we reflect and run on. we will overcome; just like we overcome the miles, the fatigue, the voice that says we can't, the pain that says stop. we will go for a run.

sending love and prayers to everyone who needs it. spend some extra time with your running club this week.

goddamn dawes, at the very least, you always get the lyrics right
get your booty out to celebrate record store day and pick up stories don't end (on vinyl? swoon.)

anger management

let me start off by saying i'm keeping this post short, although it could be  l o n g, or, it could be an installment of posts. however, no one needs to hear me drone on and you luck out because i'm under the gun to get jazz on the avenue produced tomorrow. so, briefly, some thoughts on anger. 

omg i know i said the "a" word! just the word makes me squeamish! i mean, come on, people like christin kelley, do not get angry, right? that's so going against the grain of every fiber of my being. because being angry is a negative, hurtful, bad thing to be? right?

nope, sorry. wrong.

so here i am dealing with all this anger, feeling guilty about feeling the anger, and trying to not be angry. well, guess what, it's not working, and i'm still angry. 

but then i discovered the upside of anger. that my anger, used in the right way (with an open heart, read below) is healing. it's just what i need. it's like having a fever to get the sickness out. YES. PLEASE. sign me up for that, like, yesterday. 

so, i'm getting down with my anger now that i see it in a new light. and you know what? i don't feel bad about being angry. i feel good about being angry. see what i did there? i used angry and good in the same sentence.  you should def try it too. 

so if you're into it, i challenge you to read this and cut yourself some slack, with an open heart of course. because buddha is right, holding onto that stuff is no good.

weekend wonders

holy smokes (as glen would say) what a weekend. it was packed full of the good stuff and i left feeling thankful and full. hope you had a ball in the fine, fine weather doing what you love! here's a peep at what i had time to document. 

- caught sunset friday night during my run at nolde. visited my alama mater to chat about bloom where you are - so fun! hit the trail with my old school dudes.

- apres trail run tacos from el puente (appetizer) followed by homemade popovers and coffee in the sunshine; heaven. and lots of live music from the young brothers of course.

- got my butt on both bikes this weekend too - hallelujah!

so clearly, you see what i did today - consider it your thursday blog post with some eye candy ;)

let's see how things go with the new layout, i'm still learning/playing but so far i'd say i'm t h r i l l e d! mainly because i get to use my sweet logo melanie linder designed for me a million years ago. and now you can click right through to her shop - over there on the right - scroll down - got it?!

so yay! let's play blog for a few days and see how we do.
