Hi. Um… it’s Jenn. Remember me? Started a blog last year and then basically fell off the face of the Earth in late July? Hey! Yeah, that’s when Coach got back from his vacation. That’s when I was having minor panic attacks about the thought of him wanting to be my boyfriend. When all I … More New Year… who dis?
A classic song. From a classic movie (Heath Ledger, may you Rest In Peace). So what the movie version is a remake… It’s classic and it’s simple. So simple, but oh so very hard to express sometimes. Expressing what you want, and even more… what you need, can be the hardest part of dating. And … More I Want You to Want Me
Sunday was my second 5k of 2018. And it was awesome! I shaved 2 minutes and 30 seconds off my time (thanks to my friend who kept trying to pace me. It worked though so I can’t be mad), and I felt good before, during, and after the race. No shin splints, no wanting to … More Where Are We Running?
Hi. My name is Jenn… …And I have lost my ass. It happened all of a sudden really. I hadn’t noticed the little changes because I’d been distracted by all the other changes.

My normal time is 38:00. And while two minutes doesn’t seem like a lot, it was. My … More 3.1 Miles in 36:04
I’m not normally one to quote R. Kelly, because he’s a rapist and in general just a horrible person… but quoting Troy Bolton and saying “my head’s in the game but my heart’s in the song” doesn’t quite work for what I’m about to talk about: the power of the mind. See…I’m running the 5K … More My mind is tellin’ me no but my body, my body’s tellin’ me yes…
As I’ve mentioned before, I hadn’t really been running much… so I figured the best way to get back into it was to have a goal. And although I didn’t technically make a new year’s resolution, in December I told myself I would run five 5k races in 2018… and hike more, but it’s too … More Off to the Races!
