Running fail and Twitter

  • This morning I totally failed at running. I just couldn’t get out of bed. *sigh* I think the excuse that I will use is that I ran the night before (3 miles, 8:20 pace) and therefore would have only given myself about 9 hours rest in between the two running sessions. That works, right? Either way, I’ll do a short run on Friday with some bursts of speed to get myself in the right place for the 5K. This being a stepback week, I’ll have approximately 22 miles. Next week, I’ll work towards 30 or so. I’m getting back! I should have nearly 40 by the time I run the marathon.
  • This is my last day in Atlanta. I’m feeling the range of emotions: All the way from sadness to happiness to Fergalicious. I’ve met some pretty fun people and have racked up KILLER frequent flier miles.
  • After RazZDoodle posted about how he loves all things Twitter, I decided to give it another shot. Since Razz is a crotchety old man and even HE liked it, I figured that Twitter must have some redeeming attributes that I didn’t see on the first go around. Add me if you want – adamrisu. I can’t promise anything more interesting than in this blog.
  • The other day while in the car, I realized that I cannot (without assistance) hold up my middle finger and my ring finger without holding the others down with my thumb (picture below). Is this just me or do I have some sort of strange webbing in my hands? To the ladies reading this….yes, this is what guys do in their spare time. Next up, trying to lick my elbow.

  • Finally, since it is winter and I have the humor of a 12 year old, I leave you with a good rumination: My favorite part about winter is all the sexual innuendo during weather forecasts. "We're going to get pounded hard tonight by eight inches. Expect it to last all night and be prepared for a whiteout in the morning." Giggity...

The fiance and I have the 'which fingers can you hold down' discussion fairly frequently. Mainly because he can't do any of them and I can do most of them. It has to be brought up if I'm better at it :)

Looking you up on twitter now...

Twitter...still can't jump on that bandwagon. Just give it time, though. We'll see. If enough people do it, then I might. Never the leader, always the follower.

I cannot do that either. The thing with the fingers!!! I'm just saying!!!
