Just around the riverbed….

Name that movie? Can you guess? POCAHONTAS! When she’s on her way to see Grandmother Willow, yup, a talking tree represented as her Grandmother. Talk about weird.

Well that is neither here nor there, so just around the riverbed for me is the fact that I’m finally starting to feel better. I don’t sound like a man when I talk and I can almost fully breath through my nose again. This means that if I’m feeling up for it, tomorrow I will begin running once again. Hopefully. You see this is how I work, I start feeling a little sick, then I keep pushing myself and pushing myself, thinking that I will just get better, but my body says, “No Way!” and then I just get sicker and sicker and then finally I have to take off work and sleep for a few days in order to feel better. Annoying right? Every time I get sick that’s what happens. So the break was needed and now I’m feeling much better.

There are more exciting things coming to chicrunner too, that I’m super excited to tell you guys about. First, remember when I did my own site, at, and then there were MAJOR issues of the site being down, problems with hosting, problems with email, problems with people not knowing that they had to add the blog spot back into the address? Yes, well this Friday, there will be a switch back to without the blog spot, and it’s going to be a brand new, amazing, exciting site, and I’m kicking off the new site with 2 SWEET giveaways.

Seriously, I’m jealous of the giveaways because I want the prizes for myself. So stay tuned, I will be linking to all sorts of wonderful things and will let you know when the new site is officially up!

To all you Texans, the lovely Mr. R is attending a conference out in San Antonio this week for work. Perhaps stalk if you see him, don’t tell him you’ve seen him online for that would forever freak him out. He is just coming around to understanding this… but I personally would find it incredibly funny if someone did spot him partying on the river walk like he’s 21 conferencing hardcore for work.

On another completely unrelated note, here is a picture that I am in love with today.

I’m catching up on every one’s weekends! Can’t wait to post a sweet review tomorrow!

    I seriously think you gave me your cold over Twitter or something.

    Angry Toddler and I were sick all weekend.

    And me, the dumbass, did a 5K on Saturday while sick. No bueno…

    I can't wait to see all the new changes. I need to check on my domain stuff too. I think it expires at the end of the month.

    Oh, and my blog anniversary is on the 24th, so I should start coming up with some giveaways too!!!!

    Glad you are feeling better! I always end up sick after a long race, I think it's just inevitable. Just your body's way of forcing you to take a much needed break I guess!

    Would you believe me if I told you I'm related to Pocahontas? Mr. R always laughs at me when I tell people that, but it's true!

    Poor Mr. R – the Riverwalk is a great time, but it is projected to be 100 degrees all this week here! If he needs any help finding a refreshing margarita – 100% mandatory during these times – I'll send you my local favorites.

    I just wanted to say that I love your blog. I found it this past Friday and spent the weekend in reading (no stalker). I noticed that you do a lot of shopping related things on here and wondered if you've ever gotten anything from Lululemon. I got two running shorts and a run skirt from there and am IN LOVE, even if they were $52 each. I never thought I'd pay that much for running gear, but it was/is totally worth it. Anyway, I'm really happy I found your blog! Thanks!

    I think it's just around the river bend, either that or I've been singing it wrong the past 12+ years (Which isn't altogether unlikely!) I'm glad your website issues are getting fixed, I lost you from my reader for a week until I realized you were posting but I just wasn't getting them! Grr…

    Being sick seems to halt everything in life. I think the gym missed me while I was gone for those few days recently. Haha. Glad you're feeling better!
