Don’t Be So Simple Sally!

I am 41 years old.  For today, this is simply a statement and not a complaint.  I won’t be using my first blog as an opportunity to dwell on my age…that is likely for another day.  However, stating my age provides context for just how long I’ve been hearing the phrase “don’t be so simple Sally”.  It was one of my mother’s favorite utterings to me throughout most of my childhood…amongst many other witty quips.  Not in an abusive, derogatory way but only to identify those moments in which maybe I was not using my best judgement skills…which in fairness to her was fairly often!  I recognize this now…that at times I can be a total ASSHAT!


I’ve been meaning to thank my mother for what I now consider to be somewhat of a gift…my internal voice that whispers “don’t be so simple Sally” in moments of question.  Thanks Mom!

Despite this….I’m a wife.  I’m a mother.  I’m a career professional.  I’m a graduate student, I’m a hypothyroid sufferer….and YES, I’m a runner.  I am a complex and driven individual and have my mother to thank for this as well.  My blog will hopefully, with some degree of wit, detail my adventures with being a runner while trying to balance it all and at times being a total ASSHAT!

  1. isn’t that what all running blogs are … about trying to find that harmony between what drives us and who we have to drive where …? 🙂

    excited to track with your blog, sally! this is awesome!

  2. Welcome to the world of blogging, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have, two words of advice.

    1. Don’t feed the trolls and don’t let them see the light on your blog – they are best deleted and ignored.

    2. Be yourself and have fun with it.

    I look forward to reading more and have added you to my RSS Feed Reader.

  3. Welcome to this crazy world of blogging…and the addiction that you have stumbled upon. I am excited to read your wit and follow you on your journey and your goals.
