Are u smarter than a 5th grader???

Possibly.......but I'm not making any promises!! I've been subbing for the last two days for grades 5-6. They have been wonderful!! Much easier than the kindergarten class and more busy work for me than the high school. I really enjoyed it and yet gained much respect for our small town teachers. Responsible for squeezing in numerous subjects in a short day. Truthfully ......if I didn't know the answer I just made up a bunch of bullshit and they believed me. Or at least I think they did. Ha ha.
It also gave me a chance to remember how much I absolutely loved school when I was a kid. Yes I was a geek when I was a kid. Disguised as a tomboy/jock. I never had to study which didn't help me when I got to college cause I really didn't know how to study. Sad. I know.
This was a great break from the monotony that has been my life for the past few weeks. All I have done is get stuff ready to send to the accountant for the two corporations that rule my life. And again.......I sadly love this time of year cause I have a degree in accounting and it refreshes my brain every year at this time. GEEK!!!!!
I'm gonna go for a run around town later to clear my geeky head. And try and beat the storm they say is heading our way. Yuck!!


  1. Enjoy your run my geeking math loving friend!! After spending time as a teacher, you deserve it!!

  2. It was nice to get outside and run after subbing for 2 days!!

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!

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 …

Taking a run on the dreadmill.........

This is sorta how I feel when I have to run on the treadmill.   I've come to dread it!!  I would much rather run outside, but there are days when I just have enough time to run upstairs and start up the treadmill.  I try to watch mindless reality tv that requires no deep thought or concentration.  What I usually end up doing though is watching my mileage and at the EXACT moment I hit my target for the day, I hurtle myself from that damn machine.  Literally, I cannot get off fast enough. 

A few weeks ago we spent the night at my MIL's house.  She just got her home gym all set up and so I used her treadmill for a quick workout while I was there.  I despise her...............because she has a BITCHIN treadmill.  Seriously, felt like I was floating on a cloud instead of pounding the concrete like mine now feels like after experiencing HEAVEN on hers.  This is how I felt while on the BITCHIN treadmill.
No REALLY!!!!!!!!  It was like I was outside cause it has one of those monitors …
