5 Before my 9-5

Do you know how awesome it feels to run 5 miles before work?

It feels as awesome as my face is red
Seriously - does anyone else get this red?

Here is a summary of today's thoughts on my run:

Mile 1 : Why am I doing this? I hate this! I hate running! I hate the heat!
Mile 2: This sucks. I should have stayed in bed. Marathon? Really?! So Stupid
Mile 2.5: Half way! I am halfway home!
Mile 3: I think I can I think I can. Damn it's hot!
Mile 4: 4 already? Only one more to go!
Mile 5: I'm done! That wasn't so bad....

Look at this

That's right folks
I haven't missed a single scheduled workout in over 4 weeks

Even that last 10 mile run last Sunday
that I woke up late for
and had to run/walk
for 2 flippin' hours
in 8 billion degree weather

I even made it to Body Pump this morning
even though my ghetto ass gym had no water
leaving me Josie Grossie at work today.

Who's a badass athlete now?

Keep on Dancing Till the World Ends

Just returned from the MIA

Where Anna and I went to see Britney Spears

After fighting crazy Miami traffic
we started our night with a classy mug (or two) of champagne

carbo load

and headed to the concert

Britney was AMAZING

I only wished I had taken more pictures
especially of the concert goers
They were either dressed as Nicki Minaj

or Britney

The walk back to our hotel
(since we were practically kicked out of our cab)
was a parade of wasted girls 
in crippling heals

I ended the night with truffle oil mac and cheese

I am confident that all calories consumed here were negated 
by all the ass shakin that took place at the concert.

Woke up fresh as a daisy this morning

and treated ourselves to a cuban breakfast

Thank you Anna for a great night. I had a blast!

A best friend... that's who!

What kind of friend
 remembers your favorite kind of chips
 that can only be found in KY 
and sends you a full box?
I'll give you a hint...

It's the same friend who will shameless sing
 Mr. Big's Just to Be with You
into a beer bottle 
in front of a bunch of strangers

the same friend who will fly in last minute to see a concert with you
and not laugh when you fall at said concert in front of everyone sitting in lawn

She is also the friend that will bravely wear a Pistons shirt with you
at a Miami basketball game

she's my best friend... and a part time super hero...
that's who!

A hug for my legs

My sweetie bought me a pair of these last week

compression socks
It's like a great big hug for my
super sore legs

Lately... Part II

Once again I have fallen off the planet.
If you want to know what I've been up to
here is a taste

Thursday, July 7, 2011


I have been:

Having drinks with my favorite visitors

Overseeing important construction projects

Running my ass off

Sleeping my ass off - tired from all the running

Forcing Abbie to take me to dinner

and working for the weekend

Tell me about YOUR summer...
