Cooler weather, colorful leaves, and the appearance of pumpkins EVERYWHERE signifies the beginning of fall.  One of the best things about autumn?  Perfect running weather!

Another Setback and Starting Again…Oh Running

As you may have noticed, I’ve been rather quiet on this blog this summer.  I have struggled to maintain a consistent running routine due to many factors.  No big injury, but lots of little ones combining together to wreck my fall plans (no marathon in my immediate future.)  My mileage has fallen from around 35-40 miles a week to 3 miles last week.  I feel as if I am starting completely over, and while I am committed to doing it, I am a bit “mad” at running.

Why is something that should be easy being so unbelievably difficult and hard right now?  I am frustrated.  I have put on a few pounds.  I am grumpy.  I am struggling to find motivation.

It’ll come back.  I know I will. Just venting a bit before I get myself together for a short run tonight.  runnergirl
