After receiving my replacement phone, I had to log back into all of my apps. For the life of me, I cannot get into my Instagram account because I can’t get the password correct. All it does when I try to reset the password is redirect me to log in without the chance to actually reset it.
Right now the only Instagram account that I can access is the one I manage for work. In case you were wondering, it can get real confusing to juggle so many accounts (personal and work) so in some ways, I am more than happy actually to not have access to mine at the moment.
In fact, I think I liked not having my phone for a bit. It was super nice to be unplugged from the world.
I am NOT ready for this season’s Girlfriend’s Guide To Divorce to end. This season went way too fast, probably because I think it has been the best so far. The whole Abby and the baseball coach thing with the ex-wife who wasn’t totally the ex-wife yet is just so real life. You may think it’s not, but it is.
In the spare time that I don’t have, I should start a dating after divorce blog. Oh, the stories I could tell.
So I’m back in the mood to listen to my race playlist while running which makes me happy. The songs immediately give me that starting line/finish line half marathon feeling. Interestingly enough, the songs rarely remind me of the middle of a race.
I think my brain chooses to block the middle miles of a race out of my mind.
This thought of blocking out the middle miles of a race got me thinking again about how I can run 13 miles at any time like no big deal yet running 13 miles in a half marathon is a totally different experience. Running a race is HARD, regardless of how used to the actual distance you can be.
I start training for the Long Island half marathon in like two weeks!
And since I have zero new photos this week after losing my phone, here’s a #TBT to my first half marathon taken minutes before the race began. I can see the no make up applied innocence (and nervousness) in my face!
Running my first half marathon at Hershey Park was such a proud moment.
But really, isn’t every single run a proud moment? Each morning I am proud of the run I accomplish, no matter the pace or distance. I think this is just another reason why running first thing in the morning is a great way to start the day. 🙂
