Always late but worth the of my many life mottos. I laced up the sneaks today for a nice little 3 mile jaunt. Holy hell was I struggling after only half a mile. Guess the smoking and slacking I've been doing since the last race finally caught up with me.

I'm trying out a new supplement because I'm a total Wussie and need the quasi-crack cocaine boost. I usually drink BlackPowder and love it. But my big bro swears by Jack3d. Good stuff. Tastes like 10 day old elephant urine and I gag the whole time drinking it, but I was really liking the energy boost. Apparently it's supposed to help your muscles recover faster too. Guess we'll see if I can walk down stairs in the morning.

I'm running the Eugene half marathon on May 1st. Not. At. All. Prepared. I'm really hopping to get a better time than the last half, but that means really kicking it in the butt these next 2 months. I'm also going to run the Rock and Roll half marathon in Seattle for the 3rd time this year. Also training for the Portland full marathon in October. I said 2011 was going to be the year of running so game on.

I start my new career as a hair dresser on the 10th. So back to having no days off again between Phaze 2 and Bobs. Not too worried since I like money so much. I might have to give up the little pathetic social life I've been holding onto with a Kung Fu grip in order to get more running in. Not that I'm afraid of a little hard work ;) on!

Well, I did it. I signed up for the Rock and Roll half marathon in Seattle again this year! Needless to training is lagging behind! UGH!

I'm off to Fairhaven today to run some hills. That should be entertaining for anyone on the trails.

"Look at that 30 year-old-wanna-be-runner crawling up that hill!"

"you call that a hill, more like a slight incline!"

I can hear their laughter loud and clear.

I will pay them no mind, and continue crawling/dying up the hill!

Wish me luck!

Seriously...I would punch a baby for a soda right now! UGH!! Stupid goals, and stupid friends, and stupid February! I have gotten a headache every day since the first! HOLY HELL!!!

I'll be alright.

Seriously, I will feel better very soon.

Right after I down a soda, or main-line some heroin.

Not really.

I have been sleeping better since I don't rinse my mouth after brushing my teeth every night with Mt. Dew. Or wake up and crack a cold one...or warm one...I'm not picky! I'm sure I will get over the cravings, and the itching and hallucinations will stop.

So, a few super sweet friends of mine have started a fun little challenge for the year 2010. I'm a little behind, so I'm starting mine in February. They make a new goal for themselves each month, and basically give something up for a whole month. My friend Erin wasn't allowed to buy herself any clothes for the month of January. Shocking...I know! So I'm jumping on her band wagon and along with our friend Bananas, we are giving up soda and desserts for the month of February.

Today was day one.

I have a HUGE headache!

I hate coffee, so soda is really the only place I get my caffeine. I drink, on average, at least 3 Mt. Dew's a day! Today was rough! I had my morning Mate' Latte from Woods, and that is loaded with caffeine, so I was pretty good, until like 2. Got some Excedrin for my headache with has caffeine in it, so I'm pretty good to go. But I have a feeling I'm gonna Be Princess Pissy tomorrow!!

Wish me luck, actually, wish everyone around me luck!

Nothing makes me feel better about getting what I want, but quickly realizing that I've grown...and I don't really want that anymore. Nothing makes me feel better than knowing everything happens for a reason, and that really...letting go is the best answer to my questions. Nothing makes me happier than knowing great friends trump an average boyfriend any day!! Nothing makes me happier than getting a text from one of my amazing friends that makes me laugh my ass off!! Nothing makes me happier than knowing I will obtain all my goals with a little hard work. Nothing makes me happier than this fall coming up, because school will be over and I will be well on my way to starting my forever. Nothing makes me happier knowing in fact, you did do me a favor, and I'm honestly better off. Nothing makes me happier than hearing our song on the radio, and it doesn't' affect all...good or bad! Nothing makes me happier knowing that I'm exactly where I'm supposed to me, even if I'm impatient, and don't love it right now. Nothing makes me happier than what my future holds. I can't even WAIT for the FALL!!!

Last of my finals tomorrow for Technical! Trying not to stress too much! Failing is NOT an option. I'm definitely ready for some more changes! Feels like life isn't normal unless I'm flying at a zillion miles an hour. I'm so excited to see what life has in store for me. Last year was fun, TONS of fun, with Lot's of lessons I could have done without learning. Right now I'm just really focusing on school, and getting everything just where it needs to be. Always taking one step forward, and two steps back.

Nothing makes me happier than Karma. Everything you do good and bad, comes back to you ten fold. I've seen a lot of people reap those benefits or consequences. People come and go, real true friends stay a while and hold your hair when your puking your guts out. I have met some truly amazing people in my life, some new great ones at school, and rekindled with a few old ones. Is it a coincidence when people keep coming back into your life? Are they there to teach you something? Are they there for more? Trying to stay positive and be open to all the fun little signs from the universe. Just working on Letting it be. Me and patience are NOT BFFS!

So, over half way done with technical at school. Learning all about color, and perms and all that fun stuff! I'm loving every single minute of it! Making some amazing new friends, who make me laugh and smile all day long! Oh the joys of laughter. I'm truly right where I belong.

Everything in my world is falling perfectly into place. Letting go of drama and the past, and getting super duper excited for new adventures. Rekindling old friendships that could turn into more???? Setting out on a lot of super great new adventures, and living my life's motto to the fullest! I'm completely content in everything right now. I'm beyond excited about who I've become and all the lessons I've learned along the way.

I don't know why I continue to let people surprise me, but they do. And eventually, in time, everyone shows their true colors, and they are not always as good as first expected. All I know is that if you're true to yourself, and real with everyone around you, life is golden.

I'm doing the Rock and Roll half marathon again this year, and training starts this week. I haven't ran since the 15K in September. Life has just been WAY to busy. So I'm adding yet another "to do" to my list! I'm gonna rock the shit outta that half! Hoping to do another run in Eugene this year, seems I like being in that town...hmmmm.

So, Cheers to yet another amazing year gone setbacks! No LOOKING BACK! Just keep on swimming!
