The runs get longer, the pace gets faster, the shorts get shorter, the ice baths get colder, the hills get steeper, and you get better.

There is this odd trend
of taken women
saying they are too much,
and how the men they love
are amazing for dealing with them.

Love should not be a responsibility.
You should not have to deal with me.
Just because a woman is wild
and free
does not mean she is difficult.
He is not a martyr for loving me
through the good
and not so good.

Some mornings I will wake up swinging,
you do not get a gold star
for still loving me.

Some mornings I will wake up like a lamb,
you do not get a gold star
for loving me.

I am not a hurricane of a girl,
you always have the chance to leave.

and so it begins: found a 30 week (6 months~) training program, and whoooop here we go. B) the plan is for experienced runners, but i’ll adjust it as needed. i just needed a longer training plain because most intermediate ones were 15-18 weeks whereas i have 33 weeks until the 2015 la marathon, leaving me 3 weeks to build up mileage again!!!
