A few major developments to share with the blog world! The first is above and beyond awesome. You night remember my Speedo friends from Lake Placid: they cheer throughout the race in JUST speedos. Sometimes with Pom Poms:
Above is Paul and Jim talking with their fans/posing for pictures. In between autographs, he would make sure to tell people to visit ThatRunnerChick.com for more info
Well, Paul is racing Lake Placid this year. And these are the pictures he tweeted the other day:
YEP! That’s right, he has a cupcakes+running=thatrunnerchick.com speedo! I am psyched about this! If you see him around Mirror Lake race week make sure to say hello! I owe him many loaves of PowerBar replacement Banana Bread for this!!!! And perhaps some Ubu Ales post race!
Second, PW and I finally bought the bullet and bought this:
I don’t know how we lasted so long. We have been through 2 blenders in 3 years. I killed the last one while making my special veggie pizza sauce–the engine actually started smoking. PDubs was in Galveston and he said “buy a GOOD replacement blender–even if it’s expensive!”. I don’t think he was expecting this expensive but it ends up as being the same at the rate we were going replacing! I made a smoothie the other day and it took less than two minutes! Efficient and easy to clean-I’m already sold.
Last, while we were in Texas a package was delivered to our house here. I wasn’t expecting anything but check out what it was:
A pre-release copy of Scott Jureks Eat&Run! They sent it to me to read and review (and interview Scott if I want!) before its release on June 5th. I started it this week and will do a proper review when I finish it. As he didn’t come from an athletic family or background I am interested to see how his love for ultra running developed. Running 50 mile races has always interested me so maybe this will be EXTRA inspiring! He is also doing a book signing/Q&A at the Harvard bookstore if anyone is interested
It is a long weekend so lots of working out and hanging out to be had. Oh, and grad school work! Did a short jog today and am heading up to hang out with Meg and Justin now. Hoping to head out for a ride tomorrow!
