I've missed you!
February has been kicking my ass- between crazy work hours, appearing in a local production of The Vagina Monologues, and entering the fourth week of a viral upper respiratory infection- I am barely able to keep track of my own schedule, let alone get some blogging done!
But, I do have lots to fill you in on. Here's a little recap on what's been happening in my world over the last few weeks, in newspaper headline style, just because:
SICKNESS INVADES MCSHUPP HOUSEHOLD
Matthew and I cannot catch a break! We've been sick with viral upper respiratory infections since the beginning of February. Each time we think we're getting better, wham! More congestion, runny noses, coughing, headaches, and general crappiness. Hopefully we are in the home stretch and won't be sick all of next month too.
|We should just bathe in lysol at this point.|
MARATHON RUNNER LOST HER MOJO
Well, maybe not lost it totally, but I'm definitely on the struggle bus. Since we've been home from the cruise/WDW Marathon Weekend, I've run exactly three times- once in the snow we finally got a few weeks ago. But overall, it's been a slow return to running. Partly because I've been sick for weeks, and partly because I seem to always struggle after a marathon. All I feel like doing is eating and sleeping. Maybe I'm actually a bear and I'm supposed to be hibernating this winter? Either way, I've got to put together a training plan soon because we've signed up for lots of races in the next few months.

DUO SIGNS UP FOR LOCAL RACES
That's right, Matthew and I took advantage of some discounts and signed up for several races as part of the Harrisburg Area YMCA Race Series:
Vinewinder 4 miler, 5/13/17- this one goes through the Vineyard and Brewery at Hershey! 😁
Harrisburg Mile, 7/19/17
Harrisburg Half Marathon, 9/10/17
We also signed up for our fourth (!) Steel Challenge, 5/6/17 - 5/7/17 (Pittsburgh 5k on Saturday, Pittsburgh Half Marathon on Sunday) and WDW Marathon Weekend in January of 2018; Dopey Challenge for Matthew, Half Marathon for me. We're also looking at a few local-ish half marathons and 10-milers in March and April.
|See you soon, Pittsburgh!|
I've still got recaps to write from our latest Disney cruise and the last part of the Castaway Cay Challenge which I'll try to finish up sometime this week/weekend. I hope to bring "Accountability Monday" back on a regular basis too. Fingers crossed March is a better month than February.
Have a great week, friends! 😉
