Let me preface this by saying, I'm in a really bitchy mood today!

That being said. I'm effing sick of working 2 jobs, having zero time to spend with my son, my boyfriend, or to myslef, and not getting ahead at all! I feel like I'm working towards nothing, getting now where, and quite possibly moving backwards.

It's not exactly the time (economy) to throw caution to the wind, quit all my jobs and hope for the best. I have failed at my attempt to marry rich, and be a kept woman. Stupid dating for love anyway.

I have no time to even go for a run today because I leave early from one job, to go to the next. Crossing my fingers that I'll get home before 11 tonight. Just to wake up and do it all over again.

I'm done venting and bitching now. I'm just really ready for a change.

I am sooo loving the sunshine these past few days=) Perfect running weather. And since I'm a total over achiever, I have lot's of run's I'm planning on...well...running. I signed up for the Haggen to Haggen 5K on May 9! That should be a fun one=) I'm pretty sure I'll be doing the Burien 5K On June 22. And let's not forget the Rock and Roll Half Marathon June 27!

I often ask myself "Am I effing nuts?" Truth be told, yeah I think I am. I went for a little 4 mile jaunt last night. BEAUTIFUL sun shinny night. With the sun and the heat comes Erin Red-Face! My face gets bright red and stays bright red for at least 2 hours after my run. I think it makes me look super hard core. My son thinks it makes me look like a Tomato.

My lovely 29-year-old knee started acting up a few weeks ago, and again last night. Kinda irritating me. Both in the physical sence and in the mental sence. I'm pretty sure I'm going to just power through. Besides it has to carry me through a few zillion miles of running. Maybe I need new shoes? Yeah, I think I'll get new shoes!

It's official. I'm totally addicted to running. I don't necessarily think I'm that good at it, but I'm addicted. I like a nice 3 mile jaunt at least 3-4 times a week. Thinking I might have to kick that up a little here soon.

I'm doing the Haggen to Haggen 5K in Bellingham on May 9. I'm also hoping to get in a few 10Ks here soon. Also, I'm contemplating signing up for the Rock and Roll Half Marathon in Seattle at the end of June. CRAZY?? I might just be. Can I really train to do 13 miles in the next 3 months?? I'm trying to enlist a few other crazies to run with me. It starts in Tukwila (my bi-monthly weekend home) and ends at Quest Field. There is a band playing every mile. We get to run along Lake Washington, and I-90. It sounds pretty kick ass to me! I've got Baby Bird on the hook to run with me. Trying to get the boyfriend on board, but really, that's not likely=)Check it out at

I will start training. And I will kick those run's asses! And I will do awesome. And all that fun stuff. And I will have the super cool t-shirts to prove it. Because really, it's all about the t-shirts!!!
