R is for Races!  One of the best ways for a runner to get motivated is to enter a race!  My newly annual race is the Woody's RV World Half Marathon in Red Deer, Alberta.  This year will my third year running it. 

Year 2/2012 ~ 2:08

Year 3/2013 ~  Goal 1: To finish strong 
  Goal 2: 2:05

You'll find out on May 19, 2013 how I do!

I've had a very "different" time training for this race.  It started out as training for the full marathon and realized that the full wasn't for me this year.  I'm now gearing up for the half again.  I'd like to come across that finish line very close to 2 hours, but my main goal is run a confident and strong race!  I'm very eager for our Alberta weather to smarten up and tax season to end so I can get out on the trails and get some serious miles in.  I don't have much time left!


  1. wow! good luck with this year's half marathon!

    here's my post for today:

  2. Best of luck in reaching your goal! I agree - registering for a race certainly helps light a fire to keep training consistently.

Drunken Jenga

My husband and I are avid game players, as well as avid drinkers.  What could possibly be better than turning Jenga into a drinking game?

Making the game takes a little bit of time.  Each block needs an instruction.  The rules below allow for 3 blocks of each rule, with 3 blank blocks.  You can leave the last 3 blank, pick your 3 favorite rules to use again, or make up 3 completely random rules!  Try to use a permanent pen that doesn't bleed too much.  Write in large block letters.  Once you have the blocks all written out, you're ready for Drunken Jenga!

Boo!  I'm back.  
I've been a little MIA.  My stupid depression hit crazy hard this summer and it took me quite a while to get it under control.  I'm finally getting my shit together after figuring out a few things that I need to do to simplify some of the things in my life.  Things are going much better now!  I have a few appointments coming up to help determine what I can do to get this under control more long term.  Oh....the battle....
So, one of the things that I decided to do make life simpler was to only focus on this one blog: The Drunk Runner.  I really don't have the time or desire anymore to have 4 different blogs running with 4 different topics, so now you're going to get them all here!  Yay for you!  Most of my content on my other "blogs" is rather pointless and contains a lot of venting, but some of them are rather funny.  While going through them, I came across this and thought I would share it with you.  I had started a blog to rant about my…

Positivity, People.

Yesterday, a fitness account that I follow on Twitter posted this picture and I had retweeted it.  I've seen this picture a few times before and I really didn't think too much of it until I noticed today that a friend of mine had commented on it.  Her reply was "Nice use of shaming. I give it an A plus in ignorance. Working out does not always equal being fit and vice versa."  Based on this comment, I started a couple heated discussion in regards to this picture and the message that it is suggesting.To me, this picture says “ if you aren’t willing to put in the effort, then you don’t deserve the results” (which I believe to be 100% true), but to others it seems to have a much more negative message.
