And borderline Girl Talk...I don't have many male followers but for the few I do have, consider yourselves warned.
I would say 5 out of 7 days a week this happens to me, I come home from work and get into my comfy clothes (since it's summer it's usually my swim suit, under my cut-off shorts or a sun dress, I'm classy like that, and STILL channeling my inner Beach Girl) and get on with chillaxing and unwinding. And it is not until I'm changing my clothes that I realize, strangely, my underwear MATCH my shirt. And each and every time this happens I am so shocked and surprised, even though it happens all the time. So weird! Normally the first thing I do in the morning is get out the shower and put on undies....normal right, not so strange. Then I go stand in my closet for about 15 minutes and grumble around until I pull a shirt off the hanger and put it on. Kid you not, nearly every week day my shirt and underwear match in color. I do not plan this...Anyway, today I put on a bright, fun yellow shirt. I felt sunny and happy. Then on the way out the door I spilled coffee all down the front. I HATE that! I was in a yellow mood. But I didn't have time to dilly-dally so I grabbed a black shirt with some silver and purple floral design (far from the sunny yellow). But just a few minutes ago, I realized my underwear were BLACK. It was meant to be...the yellow shirt and black undies just didn't match. Told you it was random...does this happen to anyone else? Or just me?
And now, for the running/fitness/inspirational portion of this running blog...yeah I got nothing. Well nothing too exciting anyway. I did get my referral in the mail on Friday so I need to call and schedule my second opinion for my knee. That is kind of exciting.
I have entered a contest to win an entry into the New Balance Falmouth Road Race in Cape Cod! THAT is exciting! I never really win anything and let me tell you, I would love to win this...a weekend getaway to Cap Cod to run a race!! And I will be ready, I WILL be ready. I have registered for OBX full marathon in November, I'm about to register for Virginia Beach Rock n Roll half in September (I'm either in denial or very very optimistic). So why not enter the New Balance Falmouth Road Race too? If you have three seconds I'd be so so grateful if you would vote for me simply by "Liking" my words of inspiration/encouragement HERE, of course if you don't think it's encouraging then there are a number of others in the contest too. I don't really think I have a chance, one chick has over 100 votes. But it's worth a try, if I don't try then I will always wonder What If...and I HATE the what if game.
This also leads me to the second little ditty I am hoping to enter...the Runtastic "Gear Up for Summer" contest HERE. This one is actually fun and involves some creativity...check out their blog HERE. Pretty much they have an app for our smart phones (who doesn't need a few running tracking apps just in case as a back up for the Garmin?) and the idea is to use it while running and actually run (bike or hike) in the shape of your favorite summer activity (I wonder if I can actually run in the shape of a beach bum??? See what I mean? Creative and challenging!). Then we email the GPS map to them and whallah, you are entered in the contest! So I am going to give it a shot!! I'll post the shape I come up with when I get it done...
I went to visit a dear friend this weekend and we had a great time catching up and watching our kids play.
