I have some good news, and some bad news. Which do you want first?
The bad news is, I still haven’t been able to get my hands on some of that deer antler spray to heal my foot. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, this link may help:
The good news now... which should be considered awesome news since the bad news wasn’t even serious.
I’m officially an assistant coach for the organization Girls on the Run! Every Monday and Wednesday I head to a local elementary school and join eight precious girls grades 3rd-5th who have an interest in running. In reality we don’t run that much – typically some laps around the gym until it gets warmer outside – but we incorporate games, and try to teach positive values and mindsets.
At the end of this spring each girl will be participating in a 5k to ‘complete the season’ and leave them with confidence in themselves that they can do anything they set their mind to!
A lesson all of us need to occasionally revisit, wouldn’t you agree?
It’s been a good way to branch out in to the community a little more as well as stay involved with running in a way other than actually running while this stress fracture continues to
In other news, today brought about a few crucial developments that I feel strongly need to be shared with the world:
I made seven brackets and I’m incredibly over-excited for the madness to start on Thursday. More on that later this week.
Sunday involved green pancakes and green beer. A few of you a-holes made fun of me via instagram after I posted the pic of my pancakes and said they looked disgusting. 1.

Green donuts > green pancakes.
I found this at Wal-Mart today. They are ‘single serving bags’ whatever that means, and I actually really love the hint of lime. Fabulous addition to my snack drawer at work.
That’s all I’ve got for now. Tomorrow’s the first day of spring so that’s EXCITING. Now, if only the temperatures started reflecting that…
Cheers to wishing for warmer weather!
