Parks and Recreation is the only thing keeping me sane right now. I don’t remember the last time I’ve laughed this much.

My blog turned 5 years old yesterday.

Oh how I’ve changed in that time… 

Looking back on old posts is not a good thing for me to be doing right now. I never thought things would turn out this way or that I’d be feeling this way. It sucks and I’m angry lately. 

I feel like ripping apart my skin,
and searching for a reason for why
I feel this empty.
Maybe my veins are tangled,
or something is lodged
in my ribcage.
Because it feels like
something inside of me is
missing or broken.

I wish being happy wasn’t so hard.

 I wish there are things that I just never found out. 


Two long runs down - a 10 and 12 miler.

My legs felt so heavy today after doing speed work again the other day, which killed me. I’m hoping my speed workout will be better next week.

Everything is sore this week since I’ve been getting back into ab, bicep and tricep work…
