Lately I’ve been asked why I enjoy coaching …. My immediate answers aren’t anything deep because deep is reserved for my close friends and the cats.
Deep is also reserved for late nights when my blog speaks to me… Begging for something more. Read the rest of this entry »
I have this thing I do where I declare things with an intense authority.
Like – Saint Bernards are the cutest dogs ever. Or My grandma makes meatballs better than any other grandma. Or Miracle Whip is the worst thing ever invented.
I just feel very strongly about certain things. I stick to my guns. I know what I know. I like what I like.
With that said, Dorothy Mantooth is a saint! JK.
The absolute best kind of pickup soccer is 3v3. And no one can ever change my mind. And here is why. Read the rest of this entry »
Have you ever had to watch something unravel without being able to stop it?
That’s what happened to me yesterday while I was juggling. Every touch of the ball made it worse and worse and finally, by 403, my shoelace was completely undone.
I’m a pretty agile 30-year-old. That’s what my mom says anyway. (She also claims I should be much better at the timed mile, grrr). But avoiding an undone shoelace has never been a distraction I could easily handle. I’m kind of that kid that stops playing in the dirt because she has dirt on her hands.

I’m not crazy. (Well, keep reading, I might be a little)
I don’t listen to all of my sudden urges though. Imagine if I did?
I would be out for 1 am runs quite often. And probably have a white board in my car with things written on them for certain drivers that pass by. And maybe wear my Batman mask through the Dunkin Donuts drive thru. (I’ll have a Batte-that was a stretch). Read the rest of this entry »
The last three days have been spent doing the following:
Working out (coming back from a ten-day absence due to severe bronchitis and other happenings that were mentioned in previous blogs). It’s amazing how only two weeks ago, running felt fabulous. Now, it feels as though someone is playing a sick game of “hide yo lungs”. Read the rest of this entry »
It’s come to my attention (mostly through social media) and the occasional human interaction, that many people succumb to having more bad days than good days.
It is to my belief that regardless of what happens throughout a day, if a bad thing occurs, it is automatically heralded as a bad day in its entirety. Read the rest of this entry »
“Why did you do an intro post for a blog you’ve had for a while now?”
Because I do what I want.
“No for real, why?”
Truthfully, I do better under pressure. By saying I was going to do something, I kind of, have to do it.
Awesome. Read the rest of this entry »
I’m sure this is the longest I’ve ever gone without blogging. I’m sure there’s a good reason for that somewhere in my personal journals. But generally speaking, the reason for my return stems from my need to share. Because I have a lot of (what I consider) knowledge and I’m really funny. The world deserves that. Also, my latest book endeavor is that of a Jim Morrison biography. Read the rest of this entry »
As I packed my bags for our East Coast trip to New York, I realized I had way more stuff than when I arrived two months ago. A few trips to the Nike and adidas employee stores will do that to you I guess.
Having somehow zipped the last zipper of my borrowed Portland Pilots duffle bag (traumatic), I sat by my luggage wondering who was going to carry all that stuff to the car. Unfortunately for me, my brother wasn’t around and I had to do it alone. Read the rest of this entry »
