Despite trying to make time for blogging, it just hasn't been happening.

So if you want to see what I'm up to with running and life, follow along on Instagram. Just search for Bomblet.

And if you wonder why Bomblet, my Husbeast occasionally makes a big deal about me being on the smaller side (I'm 5' 3" so really pretty average but I can't reach stuff). So when I stumbled across a description in a book about an explosive less than 5" and saw it was called a bomblet, I used that as a retort. I may be small, but I'm mighty!

So go. Head to instagram. I probably won't update here again for a long time. And that's the truth of it.

Happy Friday, y'all. I hope you love your life as much as I currently love mine!

Cheating is THE WORST. 


...unless it's when your cooking. Call it cheating, call it a fake out, whatever. Then it's ok.

Because then you get things like this:
I wanted a loaded baked potato, but only had "cheater spuds" (instant mashed potatoes).

So I made some... Added cheese, some seasoning, poured it over broccoli, added more cheese and bacon, then covered it with foil and baked it for twenty minutes.

Boom. Get in my belly, you delicious bowl of fake baked loaded taters.


Ever throw some things together and just hope it tastes good? How did that work for you?

I make no promises

...but, here I am. Waving hello! And happy to report I found my running mojo again.

All it took was buying some new running bottoms from InknBurn...

Finding my headbands (finally! Some have been missing since the move in November!)....

And signing up for the Route 66 half marathon.

It's on a Sunday, so I won't have to ask for time off. And Tulsa is just a short (by oklahoma standards) drive away, so why not?

I already marked when to begin training in my planner. 

I'm finally ready to run again!!!! 

What's the longest break you've taken from running?
Longest period of unstructured running? I never stopped running this time, but I will admit, I have only been averaging 1 run per week since arriving in Oklahoma.

I'm back

After two weeks of no running, one week of barely running, I'm finally back!!!!!
Nd I can say that with certainty because the second thought I had today after waking up half hour before my alarm was, "I could do a sort run on the treadmill..."

I think I needed those two weeks off. This is the first time in a very long time I wanted to run for the sake of running.

I don't have any races planned yet, but at least I seem to have found my running mojo again! And that's a huge win.

Base Life

I've been here for two weeks now. I keep thinking things will settle down, slow down, but nope! 

I forgot how busy life is when I actually have a social life!

I've been exploring the base, trying to find a good running route. Maybe by thanksgiving I will have figured out a 5k path. The one in the picture is just a small piece around part of housing.

The craziness continues tomorrow- I start a full time job at a local quilt shop. 

The Husbeast is on casual status until January, then does IFS, then will start UPT in April.

I have a feeling our time here is going to fly by- no pun intended!

Have you ever lived on a military base? So far, I love it! 

Any tips for juggling full time work with running? I have a feeling I'm going to need some night running accessories like lights and such.

Welcome to Oklahoma!

First round of fun in Oklahoma- PBR Pro Tour!!!!!!
We had great seats... VIP section! 
So close, I got dirt thrown on my several times, and the lady in front of us got a little something special. gross.
Talk about up close and personal.
Not a single picture came out well, though, because those bulls move so quickly!

We had a great time. Ignore the bags under my eyes; my body had not adjusted to falling back for DST before it had to fall back again by moving to another time zone.

Ever go so a bull riding event?

Did you know...

That Forever 21 sells athletic apparel? I did not! 

I was at the mall for one last shopping trip before the move to OK and spotted these: 
Aren't they cute? I will let you know how they work out tomorrow!

I also snagged a good deal on these from kohl's:

With two crazy new pairs of tights, I will surely stand out once I start running around Oklahoma!

Crazy tights: love them or hate them?  Obviously, I love them. 

How's the weather where you are? With tights like these, I don't mind that it's getting colder!!!
