If you're like me, you're always searching for a new running podcast to add to the mix. Eventually I'll do a roundup post of my personal favorites but today let me introduce you (if you don't already know about it) to DizRuns Podcast! I had the chance to chat with the host, Denny, about a bunch of things like being a sober runner and getting over Imposter Syndrome! It was really fun and we certainly didn't run out of things to chat about - have a listen and let me know what you think in the comments.
I cannot believe it's only 19 days until California International Marathon! I remember counting down using months what felt like not that long ago. Let me fill you in on a little deep dive into my personality: I procrastinate. BUT that's not always a bad thing as you'll see from Smatterings today. However, that procrastinating nature can mean it's hard for me to make decisions, or I put them off until the last minute.
It's feeling chilly outside and something hot sounded really good for dinner. Now, coming from Ohio I realize that I'm somewhat of an outlier in that I like to put cinnamon in my chili. But tonight I left it out because all I could find were cinnamon sticks and I knew that would be too overpowering. Today is your lucky day because I'm going to let you in on my secret chili ingredient that makes it taste legit.
Halloween is a fun time of year, no contest there. But if any of you have been near a kid the day AFTER Halloween, you already know that it can be rough. Real rough. Coming down from a sugar high is brutal enough but add to that a later bedtime combined with a more restless night of sleep, and you've got a recipe for tears. I should know. I ate a cinnamon roll tonight that was definitely more sugar than I should be eating. But DAMN it was good!
Things I choose to do when it's in the 80s and I'm sick:
- wear black and denim
- fast for many hours and then eat tuna fish in a hot kitchen
- take out some blood
- walk lots of places.
Don't ask me why I make these decisions. I'm a noob in more ways than running!
It was nice to break out some of the cooler weather clothes this week even though it really isn't all that cool here yet. Have you noticed I wear a lot of the same clothes?
