I’m tired of seeing others live the life I want to live. Tired of being afraid all the time. Jealousy is an evil, evil, explicative.

First PR with a 10k. I finished in 1:03.41; the one thing I find so hard about running in Missouri is the number of hills there are.

If you or anyone you know wants to run the Hot Chocolate 15k in St Louis, I have a bib that I am trying to get rid of you. This would be completely free to the taker. I just will be TDY during that time. Please message me as soon as you can if interested. I just don’t want it to go wasted. Thank you.

I am glad to be on here again; people sometimes just don’t understand and call me obsessed when I talk about how much I love running.

The running bug hit me again and so far I have ran:
The Veterans Home 10k—-1:08
Run the Burg 10k—-1:08
Halloween Hustle 10k—-1:06.56
The Bonehead 10k—-1:11 (3rd in my age group)
Kansas City 15k—-1:43.58 (1st in military competition)
And I have at least 4 10ks, and 5 half marathons tentatively scheduled for the rest of 2013-2014.
Last week, I bought a shirt that says, “I Run Better Than The Government.” I’m hoping to garner a few laughs at the 10k I do next week and also meet new people at the running site.
Hope all is well with you guys.

Finished in one hour and 8 minutes, not too bad. Last female in my age category to finish. There were only 3 runners behind me. But I made it and I am happy. Hope you are all doing well.

Today I texted someone who I have known for over two years. She texted back, “Who is this?” It kind of made me sad for a second, only because when I texted her husband he was like, “Hey you, long time since you PCSed, how you been?”
Sometimes, I believe we think we are more important to others than we truly are. Everyone you meet writes in your book in some way. Some just put their signature. Others write, ” Have a great summer.” And others write something that reflects the true perception they had of you.
I wish I could meet people who left more than just a signature. Geez, I am a little self pitying tonight. My apologies.

I am welcoming myself back to the circle of internet friends. I am glad some of you have stuck around. Man, a lot have dropped off in the last weeks. We are a fickle bunch. If I am not talking about losing weight or getting fit or if I am not happy, people lose interest. What if? What if, I have been out there busy and living life and just didn’t need Tumblr like I did before? Wouldn’t you guys be happy for me?
Sometimes, I just wish people weren’t fickle. Trust me I am not going to lose sleep by the lack of people following my ho hum life; I know who my real friends are. They are the ones who allow for a little hiatus, a little break if you will, and I come back and they are glad to see me. How are you? No, how are you? You know what I mean.
Of course, I haven’t been too too busy. I just didn’t have much to talk about. But I wanted you all to know I am still around, and I still read everything you post because you are amazing, inspirational people whom I have come to love like an old, fuzzy sweater you put on in Fall and curl up and drink a pumpkin latte. You are a warm bunch.
Sincerely, Amanda Panda
