Thinking Out Loud #67

Another Thinking Out Loud Thursday – linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons.


#1 Cold

I woke up with a cold this morning. It is making school a bit of a struggle today. It is also disappointing since it is Track Thursday and I had planned on running some laps tonight. Not sure if that is still going to happen or now. I’m still coaching tonight and I have parent teacher interviews (again….) but that is only for a bit.

#2 I made the paper

My friend who I used to work with, but now lives in Nova Scotia sent me a picture of a newspaper article from the CFB Greenwood’s newspaper. It is about the event that I attended a couple of weeks ago. The picture is of me dragging 240lbs of sandbags across the gym. Fun!


#3 Cleaned out the blog list

I use Feedly to read blogs and this weekend I cleaned out a whole pile of blogs that I just don’t read any more. Some were also blogs that have disappeared over the past few years. There are a number of blogs that I read almost every post, while some that I just click through. So some people were cut. But if you are reading this/I’ve commented on your blog/you have commented on mine, odds are you were not cut.  I just don’t have the time to read 100+ blogs a day and some blogs are just not my cup of tea.

#4 Did you see the Ottawa Race Weekend Postcards?


P handed me them last night as he was going through the mail. Didn’t even see them! Apparently a few people did the same thing. So – if you ran during Ottawa Race Weekend last year, check your mailbox!

I ran the 5K and the 10K (which are both on Saturday night). Remember when I ran a race and stopped like six times to get my leg to work? Yeah, fun….

I’m still surprised I managed a sub-60 during the 10K as I had to come to a complete stop at least 4 times (if not more). The 26:15 5K could have been faster but I had to stop twice and I had an awful side stitch.

2016 Ottawa Race Weekend is the all about the half marathon!

#5 Need pants

I don’t like pants. Dress pants that is. I have very few pairs of dress pants and prefer not to wear them. I find that they don’t fit well. The pairs of pants I currently own are all too big. Winter means the return of pants weather 🙁 In the spring/fall/summer I wear capris and skirts. I should really take inventory of any tights I have and just wear skirts all winter long.


Ok – time to go! Have a great Thursday!

    I know what you mean about cleaning out the blog list. There are some blogs that I just don’t connect with anymore or they no longer are active. Also, I find it hard to comment on every blog I follow (especially now that I have a baby), so there are some blogs that I just enjoy reading but never comment, and other blogs that I comment on from time to time. I wish I could comment and connect more at times, but it just isn’t possible when my time is stretched thin.

    I’m not good with dress pants either and have no advice. Even during the winter months, I still find a way to wear dresses, tights, and boots… often times this is topped with a long, warm coat. That being said, I rarely have to “dress up” anymore for work. Good luck hunting for pants.

      exactly – there is only so much time in the day!

      I found some pants but they are basically just jeggings….dress pants, no thanks!

    I need to clean out my blog list too. Somedays I pass by so many ones that i don’t read. It’s just not possible to read that much!
