Trust me, after you bite into the first tasty little morsel you’ll be all, “Mega Millions, Shmega Millions, I already hit the jackpot, baby!”
Just to prove that the contest was entirely fair and unbiased, here is photographic evidence of the highly scientific methods employed in selecting the winner:
I ran 6 whole miles IN A ROW today!!!!
I realize this is no big deal for many of you distance runners out there, and you may have read this post where I mention I’ve done several marathons in the past, so what’s the big deal about six little miles?
Well, I’ll tell you what the big deal is. When your activity level goes steadily down (from, say, marathon-running to couch-reclining, just as an example) and your age goes steadily up (let’s call it mid-20’s to mid-30’s, you know, for arguments sake) it’s the small victories that deserve celebration.
And this, my friends, is a victory worth celebrating! There is an old saying about “if you don’t want to start over, then don’t stop.”
I am totally adding that to my permanent to-do list. With a Sharpie marker.

I just wish I could have mustered more lung capacity to do more than grunt my replies, though. Sorry, love.
Washingtonians found out yesterday that Referendum 74 will be added to November’s ballot in our good state. This referendum, if passed, will make the right to marry available to EVERYONE.*
*Disclaimer: alright, alright. By EVERYONE, they are referring to ALL HUMANS. It’s not currently open to ALL MAMMALS, but if you still want to throw this kind of party:
I am definitely not here to judge.
Speaking of judgments, in this pivotal time in our history, it bears repeating:
Kindness is key. Love comes naturally. Hatred is learned.
This is not a Politically-Driven Blog. It’s a Hate-Free, Pro-Love Blog. There’s a difference.
And also? It will hopefully, some day, be a Procrastination-Free Blog. But for now, I am going to work on accepting myself for who I am, despite my shortcomings.
Take, for instance, the fact that I only crossed 2 things off my to-do list of 367 today. It’s a start.
What’s something you did today that you’re proud of? I’d love to hear from you!
