There must be something wrong with me!

Hi Friends! Welcome to my newly redesigned blog! How do you like it?
 I've been wanting to update it for awhile, but had no idea where to start! I was reading my friend Hanna's blog at bouffeebambini, I loved the look of hers, so I looked around and found out that Kim, at  733design designed hers. 
 I gave her a few of my ideas, and this is what she came up with! Kim was great to work with. I'm thrilled with it!!

Saturday was my LONG run! I ran 17 miles. My longest run to date! It was fabulous!

I normally go to a park for my long runs, but it's 30 minutes away, and honestly I just didn't feel like driving. So, I decided to run around my neighborhood, about 2 miles around and through the streets. 
A funny thing happened... as I was running this guy stopped me and asked about my running. (This is where I run throughout the week too, for my shorter runs.) He then said "my mom lives right here (pointing to a house), and she said there must be something wrong with that girl cause she runs all the time".
 I just laughed!! I've never been told that before!
Wow, what a huge compliment!! :)

Have you ever been told you're crazy because you run so much?

Have a beautiful day!!

  5. Great new blog makeover! I've been told I'm crazy for running so much, though only by non-runners! So I take it as a compliment, too. It's great to be crazy sometimes ;)

    1. Thanks girl! I think it is just the non-runners who think we're crazy. If they only knew this is what KEEPS me from being crazy! ;)

  6. Hi, I stumbled on your blog recently. I've never commented but had to this time!
    I am known around here as "the crazy running lady"!! There is one man who will say, "nuthin's chasin' ya so what ya runnin from?!" I've had people yell the darnedest things from car windows. I live in a rural area where we really don't know the neighbors well and I don't think these people realize that I'm in my 50s! Sometimes I think I should stop and tell them about what running has done for me!
    A few years ago, my birthday fell on Sunday so I looked for a half marathon to run on my birthday. A lot of people commented on why I would do something like "that" instead of something "fun"! Well, to me that half marathon was a lot of fun!! An Adidas rep even gave me a little backpack and pair of gloves!! (of course, I told anyone who would listen that it was my birthday!)
    Every weird comment makes for a good running story!!

    1. Welcome, Lorenda! What a great thing to be known as! And that's awesome that you're doing this in your 50's. That's so inspiring!
      I love the idea of running a half on your birthday. What a great way to celebrate! That is so true that every weird comment makes a great story!
