Goonies Never Say Die!

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at

  1. Luck wished! And I think you can do this!

    • Thank you, Professor! I can do it, and I will. It’s just this blasted humidity. Yesterday morning it was at 81% and right now it’s at 83%. Pretty sure I may be headed for the gym. Alone. Egads!

      • I hate humid weather! It’s in the 50’s there. But I know you’ll do it!

        • I almost made it through my training run this afternoon! But completely lost it at the 26 minute mark. But since I’m aiming for 30 I thought that pretty darn good. Tomorrow I run two 15 minute intervals. I think I am the little engine that could. Just gonna keep repeating ‘i think I can’ over and over. Lol.

  2. I’m not at your level yet (can only get 1.25 miles of running at a 10 min pace) but I would totally run with you on weekends if you think it would help rather than slow you down. Sometimes, just knowing someone else will be there helps and I am very cool with being left in the dust if you need to kick it up a notch. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Lol. I absolutely would love that! I am doing everything on my own and have no idea if my posture is good or bad or what I need to work on. As for level, I’m just running around my neighborhood which from where I start around to my house again is about 1.15 miles. I think. I haven’t measured it except in time. I know I can walk 1.10 miles in 20 minutes and it takes me about 30 to walk my route. And I have a short stride and I’m not sure how to fix that. Buy I’m not worrying about these little things. Basically, my butt is out there running and that’s more than a lot of people are doing. Go us!
