I have been both single and in relationships for Valentine’s day, so I speak from experience when I say that Valentine’s Day is a very weird holiday on both parts. V-day has always just be eh for me. I don’t hate it, I am not its number one fan. In my opinion, it is just a holiday in which everyone gets all stressed out and–more often times than not–just straight up sad on the 14th. Please people. Calm down. If you have a significant other, just relax. Spend the day together. Do not build these huge expectations of grandeur.

I have just been running 6-8 miles a week since I have not registered for any halfs yet, and Jessi’s is in all the way in May. It has been really hot here in Houston, so I learned to listen to my body and heart and slow it down. Continue reading
