In Her Shoes

Tackling my bucket list, one half marathon at a time.


An Overdue Walk In My Kicks

It has been 1 month exactly since I last blogged. I deeply apologize for inhibiting you all from reading about my incredibly interesting life. But to be honest, I think I’m doing you a solid. There’s not much new here, I just feel obligated to write since it’s been so long. And because Emily is harassing me about it.

But what IS new? Well…

I’m training again! Thank god. I’ve amped it up to Hal Higdon’s Intermediate training schedule, which means I’ve added a day of running and track workouts. The best part of this round of training? The BF is doing it too! Bennet is an oober athlete. I’m not kidding…he’s done Ironman twice. But he hasn’t always been overly fond of running. So after much convincing, he signed up for the Madison Half Marathon with me! Even though we’re not training together (let’s be real, he’s a lot faster than I am), it’s still fun to plan our runs around the same time and talk about our struggles/accomplishments.

My niece. She’s still cute as ever. Proof:

My SIL took Mila's 10 month pictures yesterday. I can't handle how awesome she is.

But seriously? How adorable.

But seriously? How adorable.

Guys, this is sad, but I can’t think of anything else. My world revolves around work, running, obsessively watching HGTV and Mindy Project, mini traveling vacations on the weekends and just trying to stay sane. Which can be hard to do.

will share a quote my mom sent me not too long ago. It resonated a bit more than other quotes do. And yes, I printed this out and posted in my office, in hopes that it would resonate with others as well. Cough, cough.

I leave you with a lovely beat by one of the greatest bands on the planet.



The Last Time I’ll Complain About Marshall Henderson

Meet Marshall Henderson.

“I’ve always had a target on my back because of my talent.”


You have a target on your back because of how you portray yourself on the court.

Now let me start by stating that I like to keep my blog appropriate and tasteful. But there is nothing tasteful about Marshall Henderson. So I’m going to say it. He’s a douche.

Yes, I am bitter that he and Ole Miss beat Wisconsin in the 2nd round of the NCAA Tournament last Friday. But regardless, this guy is a jerk.

Evidence #1:

Evidence #2:

Evidence #3 (most recently when they lost to La Salle)


Matt Brown said it perfectly with this statement: 

“He’s either an embarrassment to the sport of basketball, an overrated guard who shoots too much and plays lousy defense, and a self-centered showboat who needs to take his game and his life more seriously.”

I have now wasted too much time of my life writing about Marshall Henderson. Good riddance.

I feel a lot of negative energy protruding through this blog post, so I’m going to end with a positive that’s fitting for today.

I support Gay Marriage

Peace and love, peeps.
