Congestive Heart Failure

Click bait! Kind of. I wish it was more click bait than it is. Since Sunday I’ve been having heart palpitations. It’s that thing where you have a flutter in your chest, but it’s not because of some gorgeous woman you’re in love with.… Continue Reading “Congestive Heart Failure”

Just the Tip

I’m double posting. I know, I shouldn’t. But I’m excited. I don’t want to be sitting at my desk. I want to be at the gym. I want to be at TM (even though I’m woefully not ready). I want to be climbing crap… Continue Reading “Just the Tip”

Only Electricity

“It’s only electricity,” I say over and over. It was meant to remain in my head, but I could hear the words escape my lips. No one else cared. Caked in mud, their bodies to the point of nearly collapsing, lungs inhaling and exhaling… Continue Reading “Only Electricity”

Floating Rib

In this past year of awesome, there is one painful reminder of what I’ve done. There is one nagging souvenir telling me Tough Mudder is a fool’s errand. There is one memory that was poked and prodded by doctors, to which they answered “Here’s… Continue Reading “Floating Rib”

Thankful

It’s been a long year. There have been incredibly painful and joyful moments. These are a few of the major things I’m thankful for in the past year. God, Christ, and a loneliness and hurt that allowed me a closer relationship and stronger faith.… Continue Reading “Thankful”

From the exhaust you could see the pool, with the large glass windows… Continue Reading “What do you think I am, Gym?! I’m a Nerd, not an Athlete!”

I’m Glad FaceBook Makes Me Look Like a Nerd

I had a friend who went out with a friend of hers and bad things happened. So she showed me his FaceBook. The cover is saying bad things about the cops and his picture wasn’t much better. And all I could think was, “What… Continue Reading “I’m Glad FaceBook Makes Me Look Like a Nerd”

Tough Mudder Pictures

I can barely move today. Everything hurts. Getting out of bed was a trial. However, this morning I came up with an awesome story idea. Granted, entirely unrelated to Tough Mudder. Anyway, here are some of the before pictures. When you get there, it’s… Continue Reading “Tough Mudder Pictures”

I lived my epic

I did Tough Mudder today. Finally. It’s been seven months since I wanted to live a healthier lifestyle and push myself to limits unforeseen for myself. I did and I learned so much. Here’s my list of what I learned from TM. There will… Continue Reading “I lived my epic”

I’m 30. I’m Awesome.

Tomorrow is Tough Mudder. Tomorrow is the culmination of everything I’ve fought so hard for the past seven months. Tomorrow I put to the test 30 pounds I’ve lost, the muscle I’ve put on, the dedication to testing my body to the brink of destroying… Continue Reading “I’m 30. I’m Awesome.”
