J-Lyn Runs: A Musical. Part 1

so I'm not mentally there on a lot of my runs. My mind is... elsewhere. Then I make a funny video reference that no one else gets because they don't waste obscene amounts of time watching funny viral videos.
 well today, get prepared. you are about to be treated to part 1 of my video references.

aw, yeah!

 "When I wake up in the morning and the alarm gives out a warning..."

Then to check the weather, to see if it's "friggin' cold, I shouldn't be half nude"

If it's cold, I need to put my tight pants on.

 But if it's hot, well, do I dare wear short shorts?

And really, who can think of putting on or taking off socks without thinking of business time?

 Whenever I end up running on the road, I think of rollerblades. And all I want for Christmas is my rollerblades "Just give them to me!"

 If I sprint ahead on some downhill and have to wait for the others, well "no one was looking... I was all by myself."

As far as getting stuck in the backcountry without any food to eat, the back-up plan has already been set. (Except Randy is named Jacob.)

 Train crossing? Such a dumb way to die.

Dude, don't spit. That's so.... loserly. Cake?! (this one is music to my ears, but not musical in nature)

Animal sighting are always exciting.

 And for running uphill, well, it's the climb. (watch this one. it's my favorite.)

Speaking of Miley... group runs are a party.

 Ugh, and I hate when I hit a spot of hot air on a run that totally throws me off. Makes me think of hot pockets.  (not musical. bite me.)

as far as taking a shower after a run, well...

 last but not least... when someone falls down and gets hurt, or they get lost, or they have a bad day.... I just want to shout "rub some bacon on it!"

No wonder I'm socially awkward.

    1. it's only part 1... you are probably the only person who reads this that knows each video without needing to re-watch it. we're a match made in heaven.

  2. Great stuff! The bad lip reading of Twilight has to be one of my all-time faves.

a new year; a wasatch akitu

“Think now history has many cunning passages, contrived corridors, and issues, deceives with whispering ambitions, guides us by vanities. …The tiger springs in the new year. Us he devours.”
another new year startled us today. somewhere between the late night meandering into a warm bed, after the clock already struck a replayed chime marking the change of calendar (for, we can DVR the change of year and play it in every time zone,) and after the morning coffee, sunrise, prayers, or routines—the time has changed, and so have we.
the Wasatch is a flurry, the new recreational pursuits settling into it as the heavy snow settles onto it. it has been a dense year of both snow and increased use of the snow.
although this mountain range sits above a major metropolitan area, it retains pockets of wild refuge still hidden from its’ own mountain refugees. these pockets of frozen time are still filled with change. no man steps into the same Wasatch twice, for it is not the same Wasatch, nor is it the…

that WEIGHTY issue

It's been said to us climbers that what we do is dangerous, and irresponsible. How could we risk our lives like this? And distance trail running, if it compromises our health why do it? How dare we take that time away from our families? And yet, to even make mention about a different lifestyle, one of weight, obesity, and all of the very dangerous and risky components it involves is socially disgraceful, insensitive, and cruel. I bring this up only to show how much weight, in general, is not "ok" to talk about. It's a sensitive subject, even, no, especially, for those of us already at a healthy weight who use our bodies to their fullest daily...

Now, this blog is about running, ain't it? Yep. So while there's a lot of "weight" we could cover in this "weighty" area, we'll just go over one. Running.
Running and weight are intertwined. I'd like to say that this post is primarily for the ladies, because we typically store more weight t…

standhope 60k

it seems like the last few years I've aged, and I've grown. I lost my identity as a runner. if I didn't run frequently, if I wasn't in the mountains, if I wasn't pushing my own limits, what was I? 
I'd retained the identity as a mother, daughter, sibling, friend, student of literature and wilderness. this was a shift - less time, less comments, less messages with the running community that I didn't know well, a deepening of friendships and relationships with those closest to me.
it felt odd, going into standhope. I didn't have goals, I wasn't sure where I was at with running, I wasn't in shape for racing. I had this idealism, that if I raced hard, I could inspire others, not to run, but to pursue life with passion. but, what about when I can't race hard? when life is racing too hard for me to train?
earlier this year my Dad was diagnosed with mantle cell lymphoma. visits to the hunstman increased, my mileage decreased. when looking at anoth…
