1979 and stuff….
So, what were you doing in 1979? Were you even born yet? I was! I was 18 years old in 1979. Not yet a runner. Not even thinking about running. Yikes. I just like this song, how about you?
The heat is on here in NY! It’s about 90 degrees right now and extremely hazy. I decided, rather happily not to run today. For a few reasons:
1) I desperately needed a day off
2) It was 85 degress when i woke up
3) I really was tired
4) Did i mention i was tired?
Well, thats about it! I am not stressing out about it. No sireee!!! Tomorrow is another day right?
I’ve been looking through a Victoria’s Secret catalogue and believe it or not, i can now order some of their products. When i say products i mean some cute PJ’s and maybe some tank tops and stuff. Not the real sexy undies or bras. I’m just not that person ya know? Personally, most of the models in the catalogue look as if they are in the throes of orgasm as they gingerly touch their privates in an attempt to lure us all in. Men? What do you think?
There’s a lot to be said for running though. Makes you look kinda sexy in a 1979 kind of way. I like to always be running behind the guy with the spandex running shorts and a cool camo bandana. The man butt is a powerful lure to finish 6 miles. Unless of course the man butt belongs to an 80 year old and said man butt is flopping in the wind. Not cool. Apologies to any 80 year old man who has a flopping butt!
I ran 6 miles twice last week. First time in:
1 hour 9 min (sucks)
1 hour 6 min (still sucks)
Someday i will get it down to 1 hour so it won’t suck as bad.
This week i learned how to make nut cream cheese. Real good on raw onion bread with some sprouts and avocado. Makes a nice sandwich…
The weight loss challenge is coming along. I did not lose any weight since last week so i am still being quite challenged. There’s a lot to be said for staying the same weight weeks on end. I think!
I was a bad girl last night. Let’s just say it involved icecream and lots of it. Worth every cent and all the mental anguish i experienced afterwards. Too good to pass up! It’s summer after all. Moments like these don’t happen very often. Thanks Ralph’s ices and icecream!!! Word!
I am inspired to run a race. I want to run a race. I am thinking the race for the cure in september….5K! Dude, i am such a chicken shit. More like i want to do a half marathon at some point. I truly believe its doable for me. Do you?
So, laundry done! I am going to spend some quality time with myself and my bible! Life simply cannot get any better than this!!!
