Pulse

I am feeling like the LIFE is coming back to me, like I have a PULSE. Death is hard! Unexpected Death is emotional, draining and impossible!

Moving on... you don't come here to be brought down. Sooooo.. guess what? The Tall Mom Family has a new Ride. Our old Jeep has been less than reliable, so we opted to purchase a NEW JEEP LIBERTY!! It is so fun having a new toy. With that new toy is 1 year of free Sirius XM radio. I love love love not having to listen to obnoxious DJ's and commercials. And my favorite station so far "The Pulse."
  • Do you have a favorite XM station?
I have been soooo OFF on my Long Runs, so this weekend I am thinking of doing a DOUBLE and getting my Long Run PULSE back. Saturday with Amanda HERE in T-town, I am a little scared because it seems like she is always dodging traffic or weirdos. Amanda is moving AWAY soon, so we need to get in as many miles as possible before she is gone. Then Sunday with ???? whoever wants to come.

***WOW oh WOW seems everyone in Bloggy Land is hosting a Giveaway, wish I had time to list them all.. But it is a little reminder that I am past due for a Tall Mom Giveaway...My Giveaway page barely has a PULSE. Our friends at Outside PR are amazing hosts so look for something AWESOME in the next few days, think Gu, Road ID, GoLite, etc!!!

  • HAPPY FRIDAY! HIGH FIVE!!
  • What are you up to this weekend?

I love when people get new cars (maybe I am living vicariously through them?) so that's such great news! Hope you love it!!

Yay! Don't be worried! The crazies don't come out until after 9! Ha ha!! We'll be fine!!!

I'm so jealous. A Jeep Liberty is my dream vechicle right now.

Congrats on the new ride. My Hubbs loves XM. He's fav stations are all news junk, yuck!

This weekend we are having LBM's 2nd birthday party. I will be getting miles as usual. I don't really have a plan with my next maybe race not until the 24th of Sept and the next Ultra not for 2 months, so it's just miles miles miles with a little speed every once in a while AND let's not forget the Legs Love Lunges Challenge. All that will help work off the birthday cake I will be eating! Yummy!

congrats on the new ride! I've only experienced XM in rental cars, since we don't have a car, but it's lots of fun!

I ran 5 miles this morning in our new neighborhood. It was my longest run since my injury! I'm on my way back!
