1. I’m running again.
It’s been gradual, and despite the fact that 6 months ago I ran a marathon (at a relatively decent) pace, it’s been hard. I honestly feel like I’m starting over.
I ran a little over 3 miles last week and I thought I was going to collapse when I got home.
It’s weird though because even though it’s a huge strugglefest, and I want to punch someone the entire time I am running – it’s the most excited I’ve felt about running in LOOOOOONG time. I am really excited about the runs I have planned later this week. I even had HUGE urge to run last night after a day at Disney. WHAT?
I’m slow as balls, but I know that I can concentrate on speed once I build up that endurance again.
2. I’m an ambassador for Best Damn Race! This means I get to represent a race I’ve really enjoyed racing for the last two years – and I have a $5 coupon to share with you: CRAZYRUN.
I’m definitely running the Orlando Half – but there may be others. Join me!
3. Evan turned two. How? Did we just got through a time warp?
Boyfriend ate a LOT of cake/cupcakes on his big day.
He is definitely hitting his terrible twos and letting his presence be know (he’s like a shrieking animal at times), but he is still the sweetest, calmest, and most patient kid. And I refuse to cut his hair.
4. Not related to anything posted above… Is it weird that I find skinny Chris Pratt less attractive? I mean, he’s still attractive… obviously. But… why so skinny? And why so photoshopped GQ? Did he just get his eyebrows done or something?
BTW – Can somebody please read the article and tell me when it’s OK for a man to cry? I didn’t realize their were rules. #lame.
5. And finally… I am super obsessed with The Desired Effect right now. Dan is about to throw my computer/phone/iPod out the window because it is constantly playing.
In case you have no idea who Brandon Flowers is — he’s the lead singer of The Killers (PS – he’s also gotten way too skinny. What’s up with this trend?). I kind of miss his eyeliners days (when we were young…), but kind of love him graying (which apparently he is covering up — not that I would EVER do the same.)…
So back to the music… I really can’t remember the last time I’ve been able to listen to an entire album from start to finish without skipping through at least one song. Check out Can’t Deny My Love, Lonely Town, and I Can Change.
Bonus: They are all great running songs!
Which leads me to…. what’s on your playlist right now?
