January 29, 2008 – January 29, 2009!

January 29, 2009



Happy Anniversary to ME!!!  Yes!  One year ago today, i went out for a run and never looked back.  It’s like my re – anniversary of running.  The day i decided that running will be in my life forever!!  I was done feeling sorry for myself and feeling blue.  I got my ass out there and ran.  1 mile i think!  

It was glorious.  I fell in love with running all over again.  And what a year its been.  Blogging and becoming friends with, without a doubt the best people in the world.  Funny, friendly, loving, supportive, energetic, crazy, nutty, happy, sad, beautiful and amazing runners.  

When i need advice, your all there.  When i need to laugh, your all there.  When i cry, your all there.  When i poop….oops your not all there for that!!!!  

It’s just been a great year.  I got to run 2 races and this year will be even better.  Yeah, once the appendage on my right foot decides to heal up i will be out there bettter than ever.  Of that i have no doubt.

I feel the good coming.  I feel that my best running is yet to come.  I feel like i need to fart!!!

I am anxious and excited for whats to come.  The future.  It’s all good folks.  All great!!!

I’m not one to get all mushy and shit.  It’s just not me.  But, you all know how i feel.  Blogging and running go hand in hand.  You reach out and somebody is always there to grab you and give you a high five.  I love that shit.  

So, lets get on with it.  For now, i am the ultimate couch potato.  GOOD???  UGH NO!!!!  But couch potato is not synonymous with laziness.  Is it???  Yikes, i better get moving!!  

Look at me.  All dorky with brown pants and purple socks!!!  What was i thinking today when i got dressed??  Oh yeah, something like dude, make sure you match your socks with the beautiful stylish orthopedic shoe.  Pants???  NAH!!!

And, since i am sans running right now, i thought i would share with you what the universe told me today!!!

You can rest assured, Michelle, that those who have hurt you had absolutely no idea of what they were doing and what was really going on.


It never occurred to them that you’d become even more magnificent. That they’d be invoking your sympathy, adding to your compassion, and increasing your “sparkles.” And it will still be eons before they can grasp that you actually welcomed them into your life and played their little games for some of these very reasons.


Love you with all of my heart, 

    The Universe

    Clarification. You make a fine point on Neil Diamond, but the my LI musician list was meant to include people who were either born, raised or spent a substantial portion of their careers living on LI.

    about the bike – check out craigslist if you have one in your area for something cheap or maybe even free. i once bought a very cheap exercise bike at Kmart for less than $50. it was pretty crappy, but it worked.
