3.5 mile runTreadmill Hata Strides
Since the Olympics are over, I thought I’d keep this post simple and give you some Olympic-sized thoughts for the weekend. Actually there’s not my much Olympic about them, but whatevs.
–Boob Tube Woes I just downgraded my Facebook status from “Married to my TV” to “Casually Hooking Up”. My TV then proceeded to unfriend me. Turns out we’re back to our morning Sports Center rendezvous with an evening quickie with Spongebob.
In other news, I think the most impressive part of the Closing Ceremonies is not that they actually pulled it off, but that it looked like Posh smiled a little teeny, tiny bit at one point during the Spice Girls performance.
-Classy Pants Yep, I busted out the classy pants once again this weekend. On Saturday evening we had to squeeze a lot of people in my car and I ran out of room in the back for the car seats, so it meant smallest person sat in it. I guess I drew the small stick. Never has 31 looked so classy.
– Quiet Moments Without Track & Field streaming on my TV & computer, the neighborhood will be much quieter. My neighbors will no longer find the need to come check on me because they “heard screaming”. Sorry, that was just the men’s 5k ending. #dontmindme
–Ugandan Gold Uh, hello, [or should I say ki kati] Uganda’s gold in the Olympic marathon: I was beside myself, pee my pants ecstatic. Are we ready for the next Ugandan gold in 2024? I already got him to agree to this, and a promise is a promise you know!
-Not Fun Run Given it was literally around 100 degrees when I got a chance to run yesterday, I opted to hit the treadmill in the A/C. People, I made it 3.5 miles and it was a.w.f.u.l. (emphasis on f u, treadmill). I don’t know how some of you do long runs on that torture device. After 2 miles I want to break something and likely start muttering under my breath causing a scene in the gym (think Office Space fax machine style tantrum). This week will be difficult with continued heat. I’m predicting a nuclear meltdown in my just increasing mileage. Just sayin’.
Any exciting weekend revelations?
