Don’t be jealous

27 Oct

…that I still have my troll collection from 4th grade.


I couldn’t go to the mall in 1991 without getting a freakin’ troll from the troll kiosk.  Remember how the people would write your name and the year and draw a heart on their butts?  Why???

There were only a few casualties.

I’m flying off to DC this evening to celebrate the fabulous Natalie‘s wedding day.  I cannot wait!

Here is hoping those pilots give us lots of updates on the Rangers!

Again?

WTF is that?  It looks like a brain with fangs.  I am terrified.

Also, you should probably watch these pandas make out.

Search Term a Palooza Round 2

12 Oct

The first round was so much fun I thought I’d give this a-go again.

Let’s review some of the awesome search terms that have led mofos here!

Awkward Turkey Handshake
I’ve never heard of this Turkey Handshake situation, but I’m all over it now.

Super Teased Texas Hair
I love big hair as much as the next Dallas girl, but this is just ridic.

The Laker Girls Dentist?
I have absolutely no idea how anyone could find this hear parking spot on the internets by searching this, but by all means, welcome to my ‘hood, y’all.

Fully Clothed Girls in Mud
This must have come from my mud run post, but I found this picture when I google imaged the phrase.  I fully expect this cake on my 30th birthday.  Everybody take note, please.

Self Portrait Classy Blond
I am a classy blond, six months out of the year anyway.  This here Shamu pic came up when I searched it. Totally not a blond, but still super classy.

Awkward Sombrero
I don’t blame him for being upset, Cuervo is like drinking acid rain.  Around here we embrace sombreros and awkwardness.  And booze.

Tread what?

12 Oct

This was my view at the end of last night’s treadmill run.  I keep telling myself to get off the treadmill, to go outside, to enjoy this fabulous fall weather we have been waiting on for what seems like forever.

What do I do?  I drive straight to the gym even though one of the best trails in Big D is literally in my backyard.

What am I going to do about it?  Tonight I started Run On‘s 8 mile Turkey Trot class.  I took this class and ran this race last year and loved both.  What better way to force myself to get outside and run than to run with other peeps?  Especially other peeps training for the same race I am.

In our mile time trial this evening my time was 3 seconds slower than last year, not sure how that bodes on my training.

Wish me luck, its reality check time!  See you in the great outdoors.

10 Oct

Seriously, what did we do before Pinterest?

Let’s talk about working out… and not working out.

Sunday: Off
Monday: Run (6.5 mi)
Tuesday: Run Elliptical & Stairmaster
Wednesday: Body Pump 2 mi run
Thursday:  Training Sesh Off
Friday: Run Off
Saturday: Off

Last Monday I had a glorious 6.5 mile jaunt on my bestie the treadmill, followed on Tuesday by an hour of stairmaster-ing and elliptical-ing.  No big deal right?  Wrong.  I woke up around 3am on Wednesday morning with a throbbing pain in my shin that just would not go away.

Nonetheless, I (stupidly) got out of bed early hit the gym for 2 miles on the treadmill.  My shin didn’t really bother me during or right after the run, but I did have a few throngs of pain throughout the day.  What is this?  Is it shin splints?  I have no clue.

I took the rest of the week off  and have not experience any more issues, but we will see what tonight’s run does.

Anywho, here is what I have to look forward to this week.

This Week:
Sunday:
Off
Monday: Run
Tuesday: Run
Wednesday: Body Pump
Thursday:  Training Sesh
Friday: Run
Saturday: Off (and Boomer Sooner!)
