My nice easy runs? Were apparently too long, because I haven’t felt like running since. That’s right, it’s been three weeks since my last run. And I don’t feel right, because I’m not running, but I think it’s been good for me.

Of course, I haven’t been doing much else, either, and that’s where a lot of the ‘not right’ is coming from. I feel twitchy and weird, but also really, really tired. The Man and I bought a house on Friday, so I have been a leeetle stressed out and busy with move prep, plus there was this election thing, which, since I work at a congressional publication, DID keep me sort of occupied, but there is really no excuse.

I skipped the Run for Shelter on Saturday because I just felt crazy stretched and overstimulated. I cleaned house all weekend – painted, filled in holes, etc. – to get the condo we are in ready for new tenants. Two people are coming tomorrow to look at it! HOORAY. This is my biggest stress right now – we own the place, so must get it rented by Jan. 1 or have to pay two mortgages. It should be fine, but…I still worry.

I feel awful when I’m not working out. This is a weird development, but not unwelcome. I’ve just got to get back on the working out ball before I get to the point where it feels normal to not make time for it. It’s happened before! I don’t want it to happen again.

In other life news, the house we bought is in Maryland, so I will be moving to a whole new state next month! That will be fun. But really, I’m seriously excited. The house has TWO BATHROOMS! TWO. And four bedrooms. The Man and I have been living in a one-bedroom, one-bath condo for four years, so this is a Big Deal. Our guests can have doors! And real beds, not air mattresses! It’s all very exciting.

Plus, new running routes! It’s on the other side of D.C., so I will be exploring new neighborhoods and becoming a Capitol Hill person.

I just have to get my workout habit restarted so I’m good to go when I move.



  1. Congrats on the new house!!!

    You are not alone! I havent been running much either and I haven’t been stretching like the PT advised. The fog of fatigue is lifting though. Congrats on the house!!!

      Glad to hear it! Some of it is definitely diet – I have been eating like total crap and need to get that sorted soon. More vegetables! More running! Less moving.

      Thanks! I’m so excited.
