Why do I let myself talk me into these things.......????????

Today I got my eyes poked out by 10,000 needles........Smart??  Maybe not.  Time saving idea???  DEFINATELY!!!!
I've always wanted to get permanent makeup tatooed on my eyes.  No, really.  Eyeliner that will be there at all times.  So, when I go to the local grocery store they don't think I've just rolled out of bed.  Or had a bottle glass of whiskey at 9:00 in the morning.  It will actually look like I "worked" a little bit on myself that day.  Maybe they will then overlook the yoga pants and sweatshirt that I always sometimes wear. 
My sis and I went today for a fucking horrible AWESOME day of bonding and tatooing.  She went first cause I had to go to the chiro beforehand.  I got there just in time for the lady to start in on my sis.  Who pretty much just laid there and twitched every now and then.  No random swear words or screaming.  She wouldn't tell me how it was so that right there should have threw up the red flag.  Halfway through hers they put on the topical numbing cream on me. 
Then it was my turn.......First, I didn't want my sis to think she was tougher than me.  I don't know how she didn't cuss, scream or just slap the shit out of the lady. (Who happens to be a good friend of ours.)  And who said we both did a fantastic job.  I don't know if it was so much the pain, the feeling of something so close to my eye, which I really would like to keep, or that I'm a total wimp.  I'm not going to lie.  It hurt like hell at first, got better in the middle, and by the end you couldn't feel much of anything.  And what's stupid?????  I would TOTALLY do it again and would TOTALLY recommend it to all my friends!!!!!  Even with my eyes swollen like I cried the whole time (I didn't shed any tears), it is going to be AWESOME!!!
Head over to my sisters blog and read about this in her words!!!

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 …
