    All by myself!!

    http://barefoottrailrunning.blogspot.com/2012/02/kristine-1-k2-1-54-miles-total.html I did my first hike in the canyons BY. MYSELF!  It was a bit freaky, but I did pretty good.  No snakes, no bears and no mountain lions.  Did run into an ultra runner prepping for the Way to Cool run.  Badassmotherfucker he was.  He was probably in his late 60’s. Saturday I did a near 3 mile bike ride with Lester and his boy. Hello quad muscles. Tonight I went to Lester’s hockey game where I got just a wee bit pissed off at a player on the ice and then proceeded to follow him to the locker rooms where I called him a douche.  The only thing…

    and you’ll get back to the car…

    and you’ll get back to the car…, originally uploaded by Random and Odd. I have never been more grateful than the moment when I asked him, “okay…where next?” and he said, “back to the truck.” My goal is to be able to be out for hours doing this…just not so many hills so soon.

    because we can…

    because we can…, originally uploaded by Random and Odd. Well, let’s add one more thing to things I have never done before. Mountain Biking. Unless of course you consider BMX racing in the mountains (not the same to me)…a million years ago. I uploaded the Olmstead to my Garmin for this weekends ride. (because this is the damn trail we got lost on and ended up hiking 25 and half miles) And this is the part where he sees the full extent of the amount whining that can come from this woman. It’s only a ten mile ride. I should be fine. …. right?

    stupid smiling all day…

    I can’t remember a better Valentine’s day than last nights. Last year he made it clear what he thought of Valentine’s day and I made it clear that I heard him and understand and believe just like he does, but I needed it to be acknowledged. Last night made up for all the shitty Valentine’s days I have had in my life. He managed to make it un-Hallmarky, we made It what we wanted it to be and I don’t think we even knew how much fun we would have. I’m almost 100% certain I have never made out with someone like a teenager for that many hours. Between the…

    Shit Trail Runners say…

    Well…this trail runner at least. Here are some of the things heard while trail running in 2011 and 2012. 1. LIFE FLIGHT! 2.  I’m making wrong choices. 3. Keep up, Catch up or Shut up. 4. I’m not good at crossing over streams on rocks, I just run through it. 5. Holy shit, that horse stunk! 6. Oh Gawd, I need to clean out my camelbak bladder, this tastes like shit! 7. IS SHE REALLY SKIPPING UP THAT DAMN HILL? 8. *singing Indiana Jones theme music* 9. *singing Rocky theme music* 10. Where’s the grassy knoll ? 11. Pee break, watch out for snakes, ticks and poison oak. 12. You…

    …much too young.

    For all of you that has read Random and Odd and held my hand while I battled through my Anxiety disorder, you’ll understand this.  Those of you that just got on the Random and Odd train, you’ll have to just play along. The first thing I hear on the news is Whitney Houston had xanax in her hotel room. OH SHOCKING, like I didn’t see that coming.  The bigger question today is what celebrity doesn’t have a bottle of xanax? It pisses me off how easy it is for people to get it.  Just say they have anxiety and poof they get a prescription. I went through classes, books and…

    take my hand.

    take my hand., originally uploaded by Random and Odd. Today I am heading out to run with the ex’s. This is the first hike since Tabitha blew out her calf. We will be taking it slow as we have the Little Man with us and we know he can do up to 5 miles, but after that he gets pissy. I plan on running in memory of Sherry Arnold today. (Read story here) I found a new artist that I am addicted to. Her voice is so haunting. She’s a British artist so no chance in hell of seeing her play live any day soon, but love her regardless. He…

    ;-)

    In my forever attempt to try new things, I have been looking up things to do online. Rock climbing, ballroom dancing, Zumba, first aid classes, kayak lessons…. I’m a bitch too…here is a text between Lester and I. Me: looking up beginner bike trails. (no response) Me: Hey, they have the AARP drivers safety program. Lester: SHUT Lester: THE Lester: FUCK Lester: UP Hee hee. Either he was really excited that I thought of him and they have a program he’s nearly eligible for….or he’s telling me to shut the fuck up. can’t.stop.giggling.

    so cold…so freaking cold.

    Last night I sat outside for awhile trying to get through level 17 of this stupid game on my phone.  When I came in my feet were so cold they physically ached. It was a good thing that Lester was there.  For those of you that remember our sleeping habits, you’ll be happy to know he didn’t kill me last night. The fan was on and his blanket was pulled all the way up to his ears. Ohhhh, yes, he will be nice and warm.  I crawled into bed and as soon as my feet hit my sheets, I knew I was fucked. I was TOO cold to cuddle.  If I…
