Run! Zombies!

Okay, so there weren't really zombies. But, I did run over the weekend and I did a pretty darn good job. This is my third year running this 5k (3.1 miles) and I have knocked my time down 11 minutes from last year. I am super stoked about that.  I ran it in 34 minutes.

THIRTY FOUR MINUTES!!

I. Can't. Even.

The simple fact that the first year I came in at 46 mins. The second year at 45 and this year at 34 mins just blew my mind. BLEW IT! I guess all the other races I have done this year have really helped me. In all I have completed three 5k's and four 10k's (6.2 miles).

I never thought my body was capable of such things. I never thought my mind was either, but I didn't give myself enough credit. It might have taken me two years to get to this point and trust me, I started out super slow. 

I'm proud. 

I'm proud because I didn't give up even though there were so many times I really wanted to. 

There were so many times that finish line seemed too far away, too unattainable, to unrealistic. 

But, I refused to give up and it's paid off. So, I guess what I am saying is no matter what your current goal is: don't give up. 

The road isn't always easy. The reward is worth it.

Hiatus Over & Why I Was Gone So Long

I am going to sum up my hiatus with one adorable picture:

No, I wasn't just distracted by his cuteness. This little dude suffered a terrible spinal injury while being micro-chipped. No one was at fault. The accident was simply a freak accident. Tragic, but rare and totally a freak thing. Surgery was done and I can say he is recovering well. But, his healing process is a long one and I have never worked with or rehabilitated a partially paralyzed animal before. This is a first for me and I am learning so much.  My shelter is so lucky to have such an amazing and talented vet staff.

I also want to thank the human mom of Waverly McTinybeans for all her advice and taking the time to give it. I know she is a super busy lady and I appreciated every tip.

I have spoken to multiple vets, RVT's and watched every youtube video I could find to help give this guy the best physical therapy I am able. He starts acupuncture sessions next week and little by little he makes progress. His left si…

#Writemotivation Week 1 Update

It is that time again! I missed March =(, but I am back with a vengeance for May! Here are my goals for this month:


Wrapping Up Write Motivation

Write Motivation goals:
1. Line by line edit third Nether Book.(Finished). 2. Get third Nether Book sent off to editor. (Finished). 3. Write another 20k on NA sci/fi  (not happening this month) 4. Blog at least twice a week. (I did my best). 5. Comment on more blogs. (FAIL)!
All in all I feel accomplished. I am super fail at commenting on blogs. However, I want all of you to know I do read them. It is part of my daily routine (usually while eating breakfast). So just know you've officially been stalked and I love you!
My biggest goal was to get the third Nether book off to the editor and ready for publishing in late June or early July. I succeeded in that and I'm very happy about it! What's up next? I won't lie. I have no hard deadlines until 2014. I am taking the rest of the year off to just write casually before and after my baby girl is born. When I have time, feel inspired, or need to stay sane. It's a weird feeling not having a pressing deadline. The sense of freedo…
