Feeling a bit under the weather last night and this morning. Not sick, but more like pre-sick. Hoping the extra 2 hours of sleep will help. Feeling a bit better now.

Happy December!

Feeling much better this afternoon.

TBT... 1997 or 1998. Me fumbling with my disposable camera --(SHOCKING I know, me, fumbling with a camera) at the last claim conference State Farm ever had. Ever. The downward slide was on.

Still have a mild headache. At work today but not feeling 100%. will see if I can make it through the day - also a couple inches of new snow - blowing snow on the highway and people drive 25-40. Come on. Only to find out my therapist apt wasn't today it is next Tuesday. Yay me! NOT. Headache is down from a 9-10 yesterday to a 2-3 today.

Gave me imitrex for the bad days, gave me topomax I think for a daily "hope to keep the headaches at bay" - that one you need to drink a ton of water with since it increases your chances of kidney stones. YAY - NOT!

Just a quick drive by update:

My friend's little girl made it through brain surgery, and her tumor is classed as grade II. Prayers are still very much needed, as she has a long road ahead, possibly including chemo and definitely including lots of therapy.
My root canal went fine....until they discovered another one on the other side and a bunch of other cavities. My headaches have been related to all this stuff, so I haven't been spending much time in front of screens. Hence the lack of BT time.
I gave my notice at work today! I got a new job!!

This one never gets easier.  Single leg squats to squat jumps ALWAYS kills me. PiYo  Core at lunch.
The upside....I require fewer modifications when I do these workouts.  Downside: I still do not have abs of steel.

Ugh. Feeling like crap. No energy or desire to work out this morning (had originally planned to do ST). Dr appt at 1:30, so we'll see. Probably just a cold but since this is at least the 3rd one I've gotten since coming back to work just 2 months ago (and Chase just was diagnosed with a double ear infection and possible pneumonia yesterday), I want to be sure. Especially since these next 10 days are going to be extremely busy.
Meanwhile, December! This year flew by.

Not a lot of zoning out on this morning's run. Katy Perry's "Rise" came on and I couldn't help but think about how it'd be a great ultra song for me at the times when I'm barely slipping ahead of the cut-offs:
When, when the fire's at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They're whispering, "You're out of time,"
But still I rise
This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in
Think again
Don't be surprised
I will still rise
I must stay conscious
Through the madness and chaos
So I call on my angels
They say
Oh, ye of so little faith
Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
Victory is in your veins
You know it, you know it
And you will not negotiate
Just fight it, just fight it
And be transformed
I'm starting to think that 2017 might be a good year to take another shot at The Bear 100. Antelope Canyon in February means I'll get in some decent winter running, I'm already planning on Beaverhead and Elkhorn which are great training runs for [...]

For a variety of reasons, primarily laziness, the pub run did not happen for me. But I did get out this morning, so there's that. 
I am researching and scheduling and going back and forth and I just am not sure. Xterra, why isn't your website up to date and full of pertinent info??? The hunt for a viable race continues...
From my run this morning:
   
The scene of my trail run this morning. I ran into some fairly narrow single track that I didn't even know went back that far. Popped out on the bay for a quick stop, then turned around and headed back into the woods. Found the eagle's nest too, so all in all, it was a very good start to the day! ~ #trailrunning #charlottecountyfl #optoutside #choosetorun #runfreegetdirty
