just say NO to YAHOO!
looks like i’m going to have to move my stuff to blogger or something… yahoo! (which pretty much has always sucked ass) is set to buy tumblr. this is a very disheartening thing to learn. i love tumblr and the way it works. yahoo always manages to screw up good things when they purchase them… and make you open an account with them in order to use them (for example: flickr)… i no longer use my flickr account for just this reason. their integration is for shit AND their email accounts get hacked on the daily. their customer service is awful… i just can’t believe that tumblr is willing to do this. i suppose anything for the almighty dollar! ALL HAIL THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR!
Run Like A Mother (5K)
Run Like A Mother (5K)
time = 23:34
pace = 7:35
3rd in my age group (40-44)
placed 19th over all (all women)
yesterday i ran 9.23 miles in lapham peak. i decided that training for the 1/2 coming up in a month is more important than winning the 5k i would be running the following day… so i got my mileage in even tho’ i knew i was racing the next day. even so… i think i did quite well given the fact that my legs were totally fatigued throughout the entire run. it was cold (40 degrees) so i was layered up and subsequently over dressed for the race once it began. i think that accounted for my being a bit slower than i would have been if i had been dressed appropriately. i FELT a lot slower than i ACTUALLY was. i was actually surprised by my pace when my app spoke to me after mile 1. by mile 2 people were passing me and i thought i was slowing down considerably but really it was just by seconds. still… in a race situation that makes all the difference.
as my splits show… i was slower and slower as the race went on. oh well… it was a fun race given the circumstances. wish i would have been faster but it felt good to get out there and run fatigued. i like to push my body and see what it can do under any given circumstances. i like to know that it can perform even under less than optimal circumstances. i’ve been feeling not so great this last week so it’s good to know i can pull it out when i need to.
running is so fun! happy mother’s day to everyone!
my son did the 1miler kid run and came in second! he we even running on an injury incurred yesterday during a lacrosse game! pulled quad muscle. such a trooper! second place! wow! ran a 7:12 min mile!

this morning i woke up to some really craptastic comment on one of my facebook profile pictures (since all profile pictures are public). it was from a guy that i only know peripherally from my youth. we were never friends and we were never enemies. i barely know him in fact. however, he and my husband have a thing between them that i suppose could be called enemies… so i guess that makes me an enemy by default?
i don’t want to be a part of it. i also don’t want someone attacking me on my personal page either. not a fun way to wake up in the morning… to some personal attack and negativity. bummer.
so i just deleted the comment and blocked him. i didn’t even bother to respond. the thing is… it is really disheartening that people like this are walking around. what a sad existence he must lead that he needed to seek me out and write on my page. now i’m feeling sad. sad for him and sad about the stuff he wrote about me on my page. i know that he was just being mean and that it is his own trip he’s on and that it also had nothing at all to do with me personally.
still… it was hurtful and he succeeded in his mission i suppose.
now… to do the work to repair my ego and psyche and get on with my day.
have a great day everyone and be kind to one another… you have no idea what someone else is going through in their life. so be nice.
