Seeing as I can walk around pain-free, I decided to work with my strength coach and see what we could accomplish while being mindful of my hip and ankle … I don’t know why I think this means he’s going to take it easy on me!

I am confident that I will be able to survive my marathon training program, but my coach suggested that I avoid trails.  My torn labrum greatly diminishes my ability to maneuver uneven terrain and I cannot afford any more time off from training!

In other news, I received the cutest text message from the lady …

her:  I love it that you post our chats.  It’s so funny to see them and it’s like 'awww that's so cute what a lucky girl … oh wait that's me omg!'  It makes me happy every time!

Dave Matthews Band — Sledgehammer (Peter Gabriel Cover)

You could have a steam train
if you’d just lay down your tracks
you could have an aeroplane flying
if you bring your blue sky back

All you do is call me
I’ll be anything you need

You could have a big dipper
going up and down (all around the bends)
you could have a bumper car, bumping
this amusement never ends

I want to be your sledgehammer
why don’t you call my name
oh let me be your sledgehammer
this will be my testimony


Show me round your fruit cage
'cause I will be your honey bee
open up your fruit cage
where the fruit is as sweet as can be

I want to be your sledgehammer
why don’t you call my name
you’d better call the sledgehammer
put your mind at rest
I’m going to be the sledgehammer
this can be my testimony
I’m your sledgehammer
let there be no doubt about it

sledge … sledge … sledge … sledgehammer!

I’ve kicked the habit (I’ve kicked the habit)
shed my skin (shed my skin)
this is the new stuff (this is the new stuff)
I go dancing in (we go dancing in)
oh won’t you show for me (show for me)
and I will show for you (show for you)
and I show for me (show for me)
and I will show for you

yea, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I do mean you
only you
you’ve been coming through
going to build that power
build, build up that power, hey
I’ve been feeding the rhythm
I’ve been feeding the rhythm
going to feel that power, build in you
come on, come on, help me do
come on, come on, help me do
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, you

I’ve kicked the habit (I’ve kicked the habit)
shed my skin (shed my skin)
this is the new stuff (this is the new stuff)
I go dancing in (we go dancing in)
oh won’t you (show for me)
and I will show for you (show for you)
and I show for me (show for me)
and I will show for you (show for you)

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I do mean you!

Every single Monday — Okie dokie … Free my mind … Right …No problem

being vegan is cool except for when people who don’t know anything about it suddenly become nutrition experts and moral philosophers and get all up in your ass

(via id-ratherbesleeping)

me: best case scenario, we get along great and I get to hold your hand and give you a kiss … worst case scenario, we get along great and I get to hang out with an awesome girl and run a marathon.  It’s a win-win scenario, but who knows, there’s a chance that you may not end up liking me ツ

her: haha well when you put it like that, I guess there’s no downside … and I don’t think there’s a chance I won’t like you, but ok :P
