Timehop

I saw several people posting pictures and statuses on Facebook using Timehop.  I decided to check it out and downloaded the app.  It has been fun to see old softball pictures and some of the silly things I posted on Facebook through the past 5 years.  That seems to be as far back as Timehop will go.

Well, the other day I had not one, but TWO posts from TWO different years referencing that particular years upcoming Hood to Coast.  My status from 3 years ago:



And my status from 5 years ago, on the same day, August 12th was something like this:

"I feel like an old woman!  Why do I have so many aches and pains? I'm a little nervous for Hood to Coast coming up in 2 weeks!!"

Oy.  Apparently I feel this way going into EVERY Hood to Coast!  I could have written something similar this year.  My feet have been hurting so bad!  It is difficult for me to walk without hobbling around.  I've been fighting muscle cramps in my calves, and my hips hurt.  Sob story, sob story.

I am taking comfort in the fact that I have survived all 8 of the previous Hood to Coast Relays I have run in, despite the fact that every year I seem to think it is going to do me in!  Haha!  It's one week from today!  I am excited and nervous all at the same time.  It's something that will be a tremendous challenge for me, but I am looking forward to that challenge and being able to say I did it!

    1. I thought it was pretty ironic that on the same exact day in history, I posted about my aching body! Hahaha!
