I’m Cely (like Cee-Lee). This is me (on the right).
I’m 28 and I love to eat Reese’s cups, like LOVE them so much I can eat 10 at once. In comes the “running off” part. I run to eat. period. the end. I love Reese’s cups so now I have to like running. I started this blog as way to look back after a race and try and determine the factors that lead up to my mid-race seizure (aka not running consistently). I don’t eat yogurt, I don’t even know how to start making “overnight oats” and there is no way I could ever have enough self control to wait until the next morning to make “oats in a jar” out of a partially empty peanut butter jar. That peanut butter is MINE. Note to Reese’s manufacturers: please send me a Reese’s themed race top and a suitcase full of big cups. Thanks.
I also have a Frenchie named Bardot whom I adopted in 2010. She’s a royal bitch, but I love her.
I ran my first half marathon in 2009 and I completed my first marathon in Chicago in October 2011. I’m not currently training for anything because I’m going to India in January. In the interim, I am still running (slowly and for short distances) and lifting weights. It’s a daily struggle.
So this is basically a blog or random things peppered in with some bits about running or not running. I live here:
And since most of the year is spent in the 90′s, my drive to run is in constant conflict with my drive to not die of heatstroke.
My favorite things to do are eat, read, and watch TV. I really love to eat while reading and watching TV. Really brings it all together. I love to read history (specifically British and Russian history), so if you have any good book suggestions please email me!
Did I mention I love food? I. LOVE. FOOD. Most of my day is spent fantasizing about it, some might say I have food issues. Whatever, it’s delicious.
I also like to drink. A lot. I like to drink a lot (in volume and frequency). I also probably have a problem with that.
Anywho, welcome to my blog and I hope you like Harry Potter and enjoy random ranting, and if you don’t, who invited you anyway?
I use PicMonkey to edit all of my pictures and put the captions on them.
