    Default Give me the scoop!

    What's been going on around here? Feels like forever since I've spent any time on here. I have such limited free time these days. So, a little about my crazy world these days...

    I no longer get to work from home, and I no longer have to work 2 hours away. I jumped ship away from the mortgage industry and am now managing a Fleet Feet Sports store which caters to specialty running. I love my work!!! We have training programs that get people into an active, healthier lifestyle. It is so awesome to see people inspired and changing their lives for the better. Finally, a rewarding job. I live within running distance of the store - ok, less than 3 miles, given that I could mean 26 miles here! The only draw back is it is retail and I work 52+ hours per week. So in my free time, I am usually training, trying to keep up with running a household, and spending time with the kids.

    I am still racing. I think I'm up to 13 completed marathons or so. I've done a few ultra marathons, but those are sooooo boring. Too many hours in my own thoughts. Last summer I did my first Triathlon and I'm totally hooked on them now. This summer I will compete in my first full Ironman in Louisville, KY. Swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles, run 26.2 miles. Sweet. Training will toss in a half ironman in Racine, WI and a marathon at the end of this month.

    The kids are doing great. The oldest is a freshman in college, so she is officially now my sister - I cannot possibly have a kid that old. She's doing well and is still with the guy she has been dating since soph yr in high school. Her injuries from that awful car accident are pretty much gone. The boy gets straight A's and is in band. He has an awesome sense of humor and is a really great kid. Trouble is in 3rd grade now - hard to believe that she's that old. She does well in school and is into gymnastics and horses. Both she and Boy like to do the fun run 5k's at my store. The ex and I get along better than when we were dating. It makes it so good for the kids, though it's been a long road to get here.

    The biggest news is that I'm engaged to a runner friend of mine. He's run thousands of miles with me, which means he's heard all the gory details about everything and vice versa. So when we started dating, there were no secrets. We have kept it that way, which is probably why I have actually consented to marriage again. We have open, honest communication and mutual respect. THAT is how a marriage should be. He's a triathlete like me. Seriously, he is my clone. Opposites may attract, but it's much better when you're not opposites! In true form, our wedding will not be normal. We will be married in the mud pit by the Frog (mascot) at the Muddy Buddy event on Aug 1. Google it if you are curious! It's a blast. The honeymoon starts in Louisville with the Ironman and ends in Italy on a Trek bike tour (courtesy of my boss). Spectacular.

    The last time I posted here, my world was just beginning to recover from the earthquake that was my divorce. I never believed in a million years that I would find the happiness that I have, and I know better than to take it for granted. I am truly blessed.

    So, I am hoping to hear from all of my old friends here in Linkie Land. Wassuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuup???

    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.

    RF8...if I tried to write it all, it'd be a verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry long read. So, the Cliff's Notes version:

    Life sucked, ready to redecorate living room with brains, divorced, back on the road fulltime, gave up on finding love & happiness again, reconnected with past girlfriend, rekindled love life, getting remarried in less than a month.

    There we go. Caught up. LOL

    Dodgeboy!! So good to hear from you! You saw my latest, so PM me to catch up on your end if it's too X rated to post here!

    Wow, monkeyboy, you have been busy!!! I'm so excited you're getting married! Happiness is not over rated. Still driving full time then? I still wonder how the hell one deals with driving a semi thru Chicago. Screw that! Congrats on the pending nups.

    JC, my drinkin' buddy - woot! Girl, I'll try to be around a bit more. Sitting on my ass right now recovering from a long run. Does the pub serve chilled Recoverite? And foot rubs... ahhhh
