Moving on.

I had intended on giving myself a one week break from blogging after the A-Z Challenge.  Apparently, I have absolutely no concept of time.  Hope everyone had a good May!

You're probably wondering how the race went.  I'm kind of wondering too.  I was drunk as shit and passed out around kilometer 9 and then woke up at Arby's.....




I'm totally kidding.  I actually didn't run it.

 I contracted some sort of awful death virus and suffered with a fever of 103 for 10 days and am still currently hacking up my lungs.



All excuses aside though, the truth is that I really actually didn't want to run it.  The death virus was a blessing.  I felt untrained and completely off my game.  I had started this running season with a full marathon goal.  As soon as I realized that training for a full was not working well for my family and marriage, I basically quit.  I was busy enough with both boys in Lacrosse and Baseball, and treading my way through my first tax season at work.

Moving on!


I'm now seriously considering running the half in Edmonton on August 25th.  I'd like to train hard and earn a PR.  Death virus is proving to be on it's way out of my body, so my training shall commence next week.  

While I was on a running break, I did find some rather miraculous drink recipes!

Check back on Friday for a Pink Lemonade recipe that will blow your mind!

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!

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.

Spork.

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…
