Workout: Taught spin (knee hurt, hmm) and then tested out running to see if it was worth it to go race this weekend….FELT AWESOME. Um, I don’t know what to think about this one. My spinning form must be messed up or I am trying to do to much tension, IDK. Run was short but gave me a little confidence for Saturday. Mile 1-8:00 (testing out the water) Mile 2-5 (6:30) felt very happy and let’s see if I can hold that pace for 13.1……what do you think?
I complain about the fact that I don’t have enough time to blow-dry my hair and pick out a shirt that I haven’t already worn three days this week. At least I paired it up with something different, hopefully my students don’t notice. I am supposed to be an example of hygiene. FYI we don’t have a washer and dryer….you do the math.
I caught myself and said….’hey Janae, remember how you spent two hours on your 1/2 marathon playlist making sure each song was just right and in the perfect order. It is stuff like this that makes it so you don’t have enough time to shave your legs (sorry Billy) or pluck your eyebrows (sorry to the rest of the world).”
Will I change my ways. Nope. I love wasting ridiculous amounts of time on things that to most people sound silly but are REALLY important to me.
I will share the playlist with you. I would only do this with my closest friends.
P.S. I am one of those girls that listens to really angry music when she runs. When I do other things like spin or crosstraining I like the poppy stuff but when it is just me and my sneakers hitting the pavement just call me Linkin Park’s biggest fan.
Maybe my angry music explains my angry faces. Sorry, you have had to endure all the creepy race photos this week but I have too many of them so why not post them all over the internet?
Is it illegal to put up pictures of random people’s chest hair that Billy took a picture of during a race? I bet I could pull this off on my legs, I could shave hungryrunnergirl onto them.

I know this is the most random post ever but I wanted to tell you about an experiment we are doing for one of my classes. We put rice into jars 2 weeks ago and wrote words on the jars. The students talk to them everyday (positive things to the positive jars and negative things to the negative ones). Guess what…… The negative jars of rice are molding and the positive one’s still look good. The way we talk to ourselves and those around us have a huge impact!!! Don’t mold yourself over.
We will be best friends forever (okay, we already are) if you vote for me for the woman’s health best health blogs. I will send you Swedish Fish if you do….dang it, does that take away from my ‘healthy living blog’ points. CLICK HERE TO VOTE!!! Billy, you better vote. Mom, will you tell Dad to vote too?
What is your favorite type of music to run too?
-All of the sudden I turn into a 16 year old boy with my music choices when I run.
What do you eat the night before a race?
-I am old school and stick to spaghetti, grilled chicken and breadsticks of course. NO FIBER FOR THIS GIRL.
Do you think our words impact our lives?
-100% I believe that self-fulfilling prophesies happen all of the time. Why do you think I make crazy hard goals…..if I say and think I can I WILL!!!!
