Dazed and confused

One year later…

I went for a run, but this time there was no Big Ring running a few steps behind me (he was at home caring for Little Ring); there was no Garmin, but rather a beat up old Timex; there was no fancy free footing either, more like a deep gutted fear of the gremlins in the pavement looking to take me down; nor was there the beginnings of a thumb-sucking alien baby in my belly.

One year later…

I was so lost in my thoughts that I actually got lost (turned around if you will) coming back from my second run of the year on the boardwalk – a route I have walked and run for nearly four years, a route I frequent nearly every day, a route I bloody well LIVE on. It’s no secret I am majorly directionally challenged, but seriously, this was an all-time low for me. I was literally 2 minutes from home when I got so dazed and confused, I thought I had missed my turn off, and actually turned around to go back! But this run was no ordinary run.

One year later…

This run was the anniversary of the run when I went down into a 10.0 face first dive into the pavement (damn those evil gremlins!) just minutes away from home; when I was so green from the pain, both Big Ring and I were sure I had a broken collar bone; when Big Ring had to force me to eat an omelette (which by the way we also unintentionally had this evening :)) before heading to the hospital; when I spent three and a half hours separated from Big Ring waiting to get an x-ray – three of which I had the biggest, most exciting news of my life to share, but could do no such thing. (It wasn’t exactly something that could be texted!)

This run was the anniversary of the run I found out about my Little Ring 😀

Beautiful night for a beautiful run with a beautiful memory.


  • 5:15 p.m. BG before: 4.9 (3 Stoned Wheat Thins, no bolus)
  • Temp. basal: none
  • Distance: 4 minute intervals to a total of 12 minutes with 1 minute walking between each interval.
  • 6 p.m. BG after: 5.3

And yes, my friends, that ankle update is still on it’s way.
