Welcome back!

How is it almost November already?!  This year has been a whirlwind.  So much has happened way too fast.  

Time to sloooooowwwww it down......

I just finished reading an article about how to get back into running.  I haven't had a real run since July.  I think I really needed the break, both mentally and physically.  I think it's time to pour the wine in a sippy cup and jump back on the treadmill.

Let's go!

I don't really have a plan.  Not yet anyways!  I'd like to get back into the gym 'old school style' which I used to love: cardio followed by strength training.  I sort of quit doing this and started with the workout dvds and yoga.  Both of which I got bored with very quickly....

I want to build up my miles again and get myself in gear for half marathon training come the new year.  I'm going to run the Woody's Half Marathon, the Dinosaur 5km, and Mud Hero for sure in 2014.  I'l like to try some new races as well, like the October run in Victoria and maybe the half in Vegas in November! 

 Any suggestions for some other runs?  Anyone want to join me?

    1. Wait for the next model. This one leaks alot. ;)

  2. lol--the cup does indeed, rock. Good luck with this....I strength train and have a heavy bag, that's about it. Perhaps I don't care for running as it seems you're going somewhere...when you're really not?

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.
