Road Closure

28 Feb

I’ve never been so stoked for a road closure.



Gleeful Workout Jams

9 Feb

For nearly three years Glee songs have had a constant presence on my workout playlists.  The first time I heard their (original) version of Don’t Stop Believing I was totally hooked.

A couple years later I’ve slid off the bandwagon a bit as far as watching the show goes, but I am definitely still very much into the music.

Here are a few jams currently in rotation for my workouts.

Don’t Stop Believing (Regionals Version) – New Directions
I chose this version over the original because I love hearing everyone’s voices opposed to just Rachel and Finn.

Telephone – Lea Michele and Chaurice Pempenco
Dare I say I enjoy this version more than the original?  Its definitely a close call.  These ladies can siiinnnnng.

Halo/Walking on Sunshine Mash Up – Glee Girls
Holy mother of high energy.  If you’re a Glee fan you know the girls were all hopped up on caffeine pills a la Jessie Spano when they performed this.  Listening to this on your run will definitely give you an extra burst of energy.

Rumour Has It/Someone Like You Mash Up – Amber Riley and Naya Rivera with the Trouble Tones
I may have listened to nothing but this song for a month straight.  It is simply fabulous.  Adele should be proud.  Very proud.

River Deep Mountain High – Amber Riley and Naya River
Amber and Naya are my favorite singers on the show, they’ve got soul coming out the wazoo.

Teenage Dream – The Warblers
I love Darren Criss.  He is fantastic.  And adorable.  He had me when I saw this video of him rockin’ out to The Little Mermaid.

Also, you must check out the Mini Warbler.  So precious.

PYT (Pretty Young Thing) – Kevin McHale with Mike Chang Jr.
Mike Chang is my favorite dude on the show.  He is awesome.  Artie’s not so bad either.

Well, crap.

I’ve sort of abandoned this little ole blog huh?  My bad.  I suppose you could say I’ve been a bit uninspired lately.  I’m working on that.  Pinky swears.

So here’s what’s been going on.

-I rocked out my 3rd half marathon last weekend.  I ran 13.1 miles (13.4 according to my Garmin, ahem) around Anaheim and Disneyland at the Inaugural Tinkerbell Half Marathon.

-I’m running my next half marathon March 4 at the Rock n Roll New Orleans.  I’m pretty pumped.  Not so much about the running, but all the eating and drinking I plan to do across New Orleans.  Also, I’m pretty pumped about this:

That’s my kind of elevation chart.

-I’m volunteering at the Austin Marathon next weekend.  I’ll be working the expo on Saturday and handing out medals the morning of the race, should be fun!

-To say I’m stoked about seeing The Vow this weekend is a total understatement.  I plan on running straight from work to the theatre.  Channing Tatum, I’m a comin’.

You really don’t want to know how many times I’ve watched this trailer.  Odds of me being disappointed with the  movie?  17 to 1.

-I started the New Rules of Lifting for Women program this week.  I’ve only done two works outs, so I don’t want want to get too excited bout this, but I’ll keep you posted.  I will say the program has been really confusing to figure out, or I’m really dumb.  Probably the latter.

-I’ve sucked at race recaps lately so here are pics from my November and December races, the Turkey Trot and the Jingle Bell Run.

Don’t forget to tell me I look smart and that you love my antlers.

I did it.
