Moe, for better or worse

This blog used to be called "one year in the life of a short fat runner"; then it was called "Am I a runner? you decide." I've decided running isn't the thing I need to talk about'll come up for sure, but it's just one part of me, so I think I'll just call this blog: Moe, for better or worse.

Rain rain, go away....

So, I have been in a funk. I hate cold rainy weather, which is all we've had for a week now. No, it was sunny on Thursday for a bit. That was nice. I went for a horrible run then, but at least it was sunny.

The weather has made everything that irritates me 270% more irritating. Including the other person in this house which makes for interesting evenings. I bite my tongue, but seriously dude, for the love of all that is holy and if you want to keep your testicles, turn.down.the.motherf'

yes it has been that kinda week.

I'm also frustrated with my quest to lose some weight. It ain't happening...and I was really trying hard. Operative word here...was. I'll still watch it, but really, after 3 weeks of reasonable portions, healthy choices, salads, no dessert...nothing. Not one damn ounce.

A very good friend got some very bad news this week and it has really thrown me. He and I will now have more in common than I'd ever wanted. He lives too far away for me to see him in person right now, but I've been praying for him. I hope he knows that.

I went for a run today with Penny. We did more than 5 miles, which is the longest I've run since December; probably close to year before that. At least without significant walking. The weather was still crappy, and I was cold when I got home, but it wasn't awful and it's on the books. I had to skip my run yesterday because my knee was bothering me. I thought it more important to get in this long run than 3 yesterday. I wish running were easier.

Every once in a feels really really good though. Really good.

I know it's not much, but I was sad that no one noticed on our running forum what I'd posted. Finally my friend mentioned it in his post and that made me happy.

I am really looking forward to running Madison, but I don't know how I will do without a companion. Even bringing the pup with me helps me immensely. Mr E, if you are reading (which is HIGHLY unlikely, seeing as I believe one person knows I have a blog), I sincerely hope you will run with me.

I am very sleepy and sorta hungry, even though we ate supper and I had some ice cream. Hmmm.....
