Mama got her ass kicked by a 2" army man..................

This "guy" as a matter of fact!  Seems innocent enough.  Believe me,  they are stealthy little shits.  And they are everywhere in our house!  This one tripped me up on the stairs this morning and about knocked me right down them!

My oldest son has an obsession with the army.  We thought it was a phase.  Going into the 3rd year of this obsession, I'm hoping it's still a phase.  He talks army, watches army, plays army.  In Kindergarten the teacher finally had to tell him that he could only talk about army on the playground at recess.  The classroom was off limits.  I've done the same thing at home.  I try to limit the "talking" about it to a minimum of 35 hours a day...............Ughhhhh........I love it that he's so into things and really takes stuff seriously (when he wants to).  Maybe it just gripes my ass that he knows more about every single war this country's ever been involved in than I do.  And when he asks me a question and I answer him wrong he calls me on it and informs me there's no way that could be right.  He watches the Military Channel on a regular basis.  Documentaries.......and then insists on coming and finding me and updating me on what the program is saying.  Then, I pretend to give a shit what it's about.   I got him a box set of DVDs for Christmas.  It includes documentary on EVERY war this country's ever been in. (Note to self:  make sure the DVD player in the kids room is we don't have to watch these in the living room.)

Here's a pic of our tree.......and he apparently thought the presents needed guarding last night.
Good to know that GI Joe himself was in on the mission!!
He'll be extra pissed when he gets home today and sees his stuff has been messed with.  And I'll be equally pissed when I have to spend 20 minutes finding that 1/100 guy that comes up missing.  He has every piece of army equipment he could possibly need.  So, what did I just do.  Wrapped up the 2 remote control battling tanks and AK 47 we got him for Christmas.  Cause I'm COOL like that!!!!!

On the agenda today is 3.5 miles on my sore foot from the above mentioned army man.  :)

A few of my favorite running quotes........

I love motivational quotes, pictures, sayings.  They're good for the soul and make me feel like I can accomplish what I set out to do.  I used some when the volleyball season started this year and it really helped the girls see they can accomplish what they set out to do.  Here are some of my favorites!!

I love this one!!  People constantly tell me they have no time for exercise.  They assume since I am a stay at home mom that I sit around all day with hours of free time.  NOT.  I know alot of people who are really busy that still find time to exercise!!

Just found this one today!  Love it and it will be on my fridge soon!

Or a bigger one.......which I think is happening to me.  :(

The "for the rest of your life" kinda scared me at first.  :)  But it's the truth.  If you want it you have to work for it!

I tell myself this when I want to quit.

I've started and now I know that I won't quit!  I love running and I love how it makes me feel!

Why I run......

I've been reading these really great blogs about why people run.  What keeps them motivated to get out there every day and just run.  I'm relatively new to all this running business, but after those first "great" accomplishments (running 3 miles without passing out/stopping/dying), I really "get it".  I'm not gonna lie.  I used to wonder why everyone that ran talked about it all the time.  I mean really????  Do we care about your time, distance, pace etc.  Now I'm that annoying person that talks about running.  How far I've gone, have to go, and how fast I was.  Or slow in my case, but who's keeping track!  I finally GET IT!!  It's addicting.  That feeling of pure accomplishment (or passing the "fast" beotch at the race) is the greatest in the world!

So, here is why I run.  Some are why I started running in the first place.  Others are why I will continue to be a runner from here on out.

Ode to the running shoe.......

Size 11.  And I'm not referring to my pant size.  That's my ginormous shoe size.  Who cares, you say!  I care.  I'm 5'3".  Yeah, you read that right.  I wear a size 11 shoe have a head the size of a watermelon and nothing in between stretched far enough to be called tall.  When my husband and I were dating, my future MIL asked me why I was wearing his shoes.  And she wasn't joking.  Not only are my feet huge, they are flat as a pancake.  I'm also bow legged and pigeon toed.  Major problem.  I was so bow legged when I was little my parents had to put Forest Gump braces on my legs at night to sleep.  Seriously.  And "f" off for laughing!!!!!   I have a hell of a time finding the right shoes.  Nothing was different when I began the search for the "perfect" running shoe.

We live on a ranch 21 miles from the closest town and 100 miles from a Walmart.  I rarely run on pavement.  This is my running "track" most days and while I love …
