I had every intention of having my Baltimore Half recap up yesterday, but never got around to writing it. And then when I finally sat down to blog I realized I had a million other things on my mind and it would be too hard to think back on the race. And what better way to blog when your brain is all over the place than by thinking out loud?
I am realizing that when I don’t blog every day it’s much harder to sit down and write when I do have the time. It’s like when a few days have passed I feel like I have a million things that have happened in that time, but writing those things wouldn’t necessarily go along with the topic I am sitting down to write about. Does that make sense? Or happen to anyone else?
But really, lately I feel like my life is a never-ending cycle of running, working, sleeping, and laundry. Like seriously, two runners training for a marathon make for piles and piles of laundry. We have a nice big washer in our new house that can fit lots of clothes but who wants to fold all of that at once? It’s like a workout in itself, so I like to do it in smaller batches.
One thing that happens when I get busy (which also interferes with my blogging) is that I get SO easily distracted. For example, as I was trying to write this post I got an E-mail about an online sale and decided to click over and check it out. I never shop impulsively, and I knew I wouldn’t buy anything, so after about two minutes I realized I was wasting my time and told myself to get focused.
Ok, so back to whatever I was saying, which I don’t even remember at this point. Maybe I will get that race recap up before my full marathon which is only 31 days away. (??!!!)
The next few weeks are gonna be pretty busy- but all good stuff! We decided to go to DC this upcoming weekend (thanks for all the tips!) and after we booked the trip we realized it was MCM weekend! We are actually staying near the start line so hopefully we can go cheer for a bit on Sunday morning.
I also have a work trip to New Orleans in 2 weeks! If you have to travel for work, you might as well go somewhere fun, right?
And that’s pretty much what’s going on around here! My apologies if this post is impossible to follow, it truly represents how my mind has been working lately:)
Thanks for reading (if you managed to make it through) and thanks as always to Amanda for hosting!
Do you find it easier to focus on your blogging when you blog every day or more sporadically?
Have you ever been to New Orleans? (I went once in 2005 when I was a senior in college!)
Do you ever shop online impulsively?
