Let’s catch up, shall we? Last week, we were listening to Grooveshark at home and an old Taylor Swift song came on from her Speak Now CD. I love T. Swift and have been to two of her concerts, which are more like shows if you ask me. Anyways, I’ve been rockin out to that CD in my car lately. Like, fist to my mouth microphone jammin. And yes, I still listen to CD’s.

I killed a grasshopper the other day pulling into the YMCA parking lot. I HAD to take a picture and send it to my mom because she hates them more than anything and I remember trying to kill them in the summer when we were younger. Don’t worry though…

grasshopperFROG.jpgFor the life I took, I also saved one. Can you see the little frog head peaking out on the left side of my windshield? (Don’t worry, this was at a red light.) Well after I started driving the little guy flew back and landed on my driver side window. I knew he wouldn’t make it to my house as I had to get on the interstate, so I pulled over in a bushy area and poked him (her?) so he could live!

IMAG2288Just a girl and her dog 🙂 Love.


You know what else I love? The Marathon. Why do these paper towels have to tease me everyday at work?! Opposite of that… do you know what I hate? The freakin weather here! Seriously. How did I ever train in this last year? Oh, dedication. But still.

IMAG2308My normal Wednesday running gal is hurt and so I haven’t been running outside. I met up with a co-worker/friend this morning to readjust myself to the temp/humidity. It was a last minute thing, but I was happy we made it happen!

IMAG2305She was the perfect person to run with! She didn’t mind me saying we needed to slow down, but still kept me at a pace that I wouldn’t have held on my own. Keep in mind my last run outside was 4 miles at a 9:30 pace and most of my treadmill runs have been at 8:45.

IMAG2307Boom. Four miles @ 8:36 pace. We talked the whole time, so it’s nice to see I can run this at a conversational pace. I offered her some NUUN after and she asked what my favorite flavors and my answer was Cherry Limeade, Strawberry Lemonade and Banana- which they don’t make anymore 🙁 I ended up pulling out the Watermelon one. I forgot I had this one tucked away. It’s also on my faves list.

These are also my new favorites! WhAt?! How awesome are PRO Compressions Sock of the Month? Seriously. Awesome. You can save 40% when you enter coupon code COOL at checkout. Free shipping available for US orders over $20.

Question: Are all the link in my posts annoying? I just figure that new people can see what I’m talking about and old/current readers can reminisce with me. Thoughts?

  1. Eh’ I like the links Heather and a grasshopper ewwww I can’t stand those things when I was younger they’d freak me out so bad I’d scream like a groupie at concert haha lol 🙂 now I just squash em’ or kick them. And ummm yes amen sista!!! They weather is horrible right now. August and September in Florida are the pits!! And I’m just starting a 10 week build up in this suana we call Florida summers. Nuun made a banana flavor?!!?!? Sorry I missed that train.

    • The banana was so good! But only if you like fake banana flavor, like runts 🙂
      Just think how strong training in this sauna (love that comparison btw) will make you for your race. Do work!

  2. Links are great! I do the same thing especially for those people I know will have no idea what I am saying. I think links are better than including a long description of what I am talking about! HA. I was JUST talking about my love for Taylor yesterday when one of her songs came on!! She gets so much hate, but I adore her haha.

    • Glad you think the links are OK. I agree, that post would’ve been 5 times longer had I explained everything.
      Taylor really is an awesome person! So giving AND makes great music. Like, real music. Who cares if she bashes her ex’s- that’s the benefit of being a successful song writer. And yes, I just wrote “righter.” Aye.
