Runner’s Hysterectomy Recovery – day 39, still here!

Wow I disappeared for a bit there. When I was approaching this operation, I had a vision of myself moping around at home for 6 weeks, blogging each day for something to do and going stir crazy. It has been such a pleasant surprise, this entire process! The last two weeks my life has feltContinue reading “Runner’s Hysterectomy Recovery – day 39, still here!”

Next Project…Hysterectomy recovery from a marathoner & triathlete perspective.

I haven’t talked about this before on here, but my next project is not about running…well, I will totally make it about running LOL but that’s not really what it is.

After such a solid halfContinue reading “Two Weeks til EUG”

That was a big one.”

8 weeks til Eugene. I’m hungry.

It’s been a while since I trained for 42.2 and I sort of forgot about a couple things…like how freaking hungry I am ALL the time, even waking up in the night and needing a snack. I also forgot about the extra-gross feet, as well as how quickly my energy gels disappear! Speaking of theContinue reading “8 weeks til Eugene. I’m hungry.”
