Cats and a Quote

I totally missed out on National Cat Day. Fail Whale.

I tried to take some selfies with the cats for the occasion and it didn’t turn out all that well either. No one would indulge me. Jerks.

The girls weren’t into the selfies at all.



Shooter doesn’t hold still long enough for one, so I got her hiding out behind a door waiting to attack anyone that walked past.


And my quote for the week:


I’m running another 5K tomorrow with Jennifer. I really have no idea what my goals are/should be… so I’m just going to go out there and try to haul ass for 3.1 . Wish us luck!!



I’m slowly but surely making my way back into the running/blogging world.  I took a significant amount of time off from running (about a month), and am finally getting back into the swing of things.  As life returns to “normal”, whatever that is, so does my routine! Side note: it’s kinda depressing how quickly you lose your running fitness, isn’t it?

Since I don’t have much running to share right now, I figured I could at least touch on the other part of my blog name and share some cat pictures. They always know when something isn’t right and have been acting extra adorable lately in trying to cheer me up!

Hopefully these made you smile! 🙂


Well, hello there!

Welcome to the first post of The Crazy Cat Lady.

I’m not really sure where to start – I have been wanting to start a running blog for ages now and since I just ran my 3rd half marathon (and set a PR), and will start training for my 2nd full marathon in a few weeks I figured now was the time.

What started out as a way to lose weight, slowly became an obsession, and while I’m, at best, a mediocre runner, I want to become stronger, faster, and smarter about running.  In order to do that, I need to focus on a boatload of things – nutrition, physical AND mental strength just to name a few.  This isn’t going to be easy, but it will be worth it.
