I have written about five blog posts over the last day and a half but nothing is coming out quite right. Quite frankly this is how I feel:

Columbus Zoo: He got me!

I know, kinda dramatic. I simply feel overwhelmed. I'm getting back into the swing of running, although being on the road for the past ten days has made my progress come to a screeching halt. Ran some, not enough. Walked at least three miles a day, not enough...

I acknowledge that this was a long (but positive) week, I worked too much, stayed up too late every night, woke up early every morning, traveled (and if you know me, you know that flying is extremely stressful for me), got to my car in the airport parking lot to a flat tire that was literally stuck on my car. I didn't know how to deal with a tire that was stuck. I was stumped. Who do you call at 10:30 on a Friday night to give you tips? Luckily I remembered my friend has a mechanical husband. I texted her and her husband called and walked me through three potential options, one of which worked. A task that typically takes me about ten minutes (changing a tire) took me well over an hour.

By the time I saw my car I was simply done, spent, tired and didn't want to fight with my car. I literally got in my car once this was all over and I burst into tears...

Once I composed myself I came to one conclusion:

I need to run!!!


  1. Yes, yes you do! I hope you have one scheduled for tomorrow night! I am sorry that it was a rough week but we're glad you are back in town! I am glad Steve could help you through it!

  2. Yes you do! That completely stinks about your car.
