We’re having a blizzard, how about you?

Sounds like a children’s rhyme.

(p.s. I totally stole this from 7 news, the Denver Channel. They have been keeping us updated on our blizzard this whole weekend. Thanks 7 news!)

So I didn’t run outside and just didn’t get on the treadmill.  I was busy doing…other stuff I guess. It was one of those days when I really wanted to but life got in the way.

Saturday I got 4 awesome miles on the treadmill and felt 1000x better.  Three days in a row I haven’t crashed.


I can’t tell you how many symptoms have disappeared:  itchy skin, most of my fatigue, I’ve only had one migraine (two if you count this morning) and that’s HUGE for me.

Some symptoms…still here. Not friendly.

That’s all I’m gonna say about that.


Little story…

I’ve been seeing my hairdresser for TWELVE YEARS.  Yep folks. That’s right.  Loyal to the end I am.

Miss Anna is awesome.  About a year and a half or two years ago I start itching whenever there is dye on my hair.

Crazy annoying.

We try a few things and it’s so not helpful.

Saturday I ask her…is there gluten in the dye?

She said we already checked that.  So I get out my smartphone and google “gluten in hair dye” and up comes this awesome site:

The Celiac Diva

Miss Diva thing writes an awesome post about all the hair dyes that are gluten free. What a great resource, right?  So I scope it out and start looking for “Redken”. That’s what Anna uses on me.

The paragraph goes on about how they have a huge line of hair color and you can call and find out specifics but the majority are gluten free. Then at the end she tacks on this little sentence,  “The Fusion Line of Redken also HAS GLUTEN IN IT.” 

That’s me Folks. Right there.  Miss Anna looks at me and says, “that’s what I use on you”.  Uh huh.

Crazy.  CRAZY.

Every day I learn something new.


We got…snow.  And wow. I’m not kidding on that. Like…snow.

So there won’t be any running this morning.

Of course, the migraine took care of that, too.

But still,

My backyard:


Look at my poor lilac bush.  🙁  I wish the camera would pick up that it’s still HEAVILY snowing.  Crazy.

I’ll run later on the treadmill.

And mutter about Colorado.

This is a week the need to run is more important than ever.  I’m going to work very hard to make sure I honor that.

Run on and remember to take care of you.

  1. Unbelievable! Poor Colorado, so sorry you have to have this weather in May! Hope it doesn’t last too long.

  2. It’s actually very normal to have a spring storm in May so I’m sure why everyone is so shocked. They always say don’t plant flowers until after Mother’s Day. But yep. Serious snow. I think it’s done. ::fingers crossed::
