So, just an FYI, that title has nothing to do with anything, but I thought it sounded funny. Actually, I did get up at 4 am today. 4 am. I am crazy, I know, but it was for a great reason. I got up to run with my friend Jeff and some other people (but I don’t have all their blogs, I know, blogging failure that I am) up at the trail that I had a great run at when I did the 13 mile loop. I was going to run 6 miles with them. Now, I had never met any of these runners before, but it was another GREAT run and I was HAPPY that I got up that early. I know, strange, strange things happening to me.
We started off running in the dark and it was kind of weird for me. I don’t normally run in the dark unless it’s at night. Morning darkness is weirder I think. The trail was great, the hills weren’t even bad at all (Watch out SF!) and it was really fun to run with people! Normally, all my runs are done by myself, but it was so much fun. I’m so glad I got to meet up with them, and get this, think I might try to meet up with them again more often! I know, more 4 am workouts! Crazy, but when a workout is that great, you just can’t stop till you get enough. On my way home I saw my home girl POM joggin’ too. I seriously flipped a u-turn like a stalker good friend to say hello really quick. I can’t wait to run with her again soon. 🙂
So then I have some very sad news. I can’t believe I’m actually posting a picture either. It’s funny because I told my friend Mojito Maven that I never post pictures of my feet because they are gross just yesterday, and here we are. So I’m sure all you runners have dealt with black toes or heard about them or seen them. Well for some reason I get Casper toes. Instead of turning black they turn white. Last night I realized that Casper #2 was ready to be clipped. I was just going to clip it and then realized you know what, I need to be a big girl and rip it off and stop prolonging this. Mr. R didn’t want to do it because he didn’t want to hear me “bitch at him later for hurting me” see me in pain, so I did it myself. The last time I lost a Casper toenail there was almost a fully grown toenail underneath. This time, not so much. There is a baby, baby toenail. 🙁 Rip Casper #2.
Excuse the horrible toes. I don’t even bother getting pedicures, but I’m thinking that is another post, perhaps soon. As for everyone who responded to the biker post. I will be addressing some funny and not so funny observations from those comments next week. Also, a friend of mine, Chance will be running the Chicago Marathon and is working on fund raising for the Lance Armstrong Foundation. You can follow his blog by clicking on his name. Funny, how I posted about bikers yesterday and now I’m supporting Lances Foundation and Chance is a avid biker (but he’s cool). Please go over and support him! Every little bit counts and he is so close to his goal! He is a super cool guy and grew up by where I live now and is a pilot for Southwest now. He has some great tweets too, you can follow him here if you so desire.
Another friend of mine, Danica, (funny, I know) is in a contest to win for her great dessert. You can vote for her here because Danica’s need to rule the world. She is contestant number 4.
Wow this turned into a post of randomness didn’t it. Well I will update the deals section tonight, so don’t creep on just yet and I will remind you all to creep tomorrow. At this time tomorrow I’ll be on a plane to San Fransisco! I’m getting so excited. I have my plane outfit picked out. LAME, Party of 1! That’s me! Tonight I’m heading out with my lovely roomie and our other best friend to hit up the Stroll and Savor by my house. It’s a great event where you walk around and eat tons of food and then think about everything you ate. I look at it this way, I ran 6 miles this morning, and I’ll be walking around tonight. MEH!
Don’t forget, if you haven’t already commented on this post for a free case of Function Drinks… leave a comment here I will be posting the winner tomorrow with some cool pictures for foto friday of course!
