Slightly less obscure

I know I've wondered it about you and I am sure that you have wondered it about me. What are we wondering you ask? It is boxers, not briefs What the HELL do I SOUND like. Only a select few of the readers of this have been able to hear my manly quite nasily voice. Well, wait no more! I was recently a co-host of the Runners Round Table podcast speaking about the crazies who run multiple marathons - present company included. I honestly wasn't sure if I was going to mention it here on the blog because I sound like a stooge, but I suppose that has never stopped me before. I tried to keep the off color comments and sarcastic tones to a minimum, which honestly didn't leave a lot else for me to say! Check it out here. (Link to MP3 at the bottom of that post)

Running is still coming along. I did a 6 mile 'normal' pace (8:15) run yesterday with my wife by my side on the bike. The great thing about this run was that we also swung by and dropped off a RedBox movie (The Hurt Locker - it was just OK). Two birds, meet one stone.

This weekend I'm going to the PGA Match Play Championship that my company sponsors. I'm not going to name them here, but if you are that interested who I work for do a google search for golf. Anyway, I get discounted VIP tickets and get to rub elbows in the VIP tent. Score. But it is a cash bar. Fail. Unfortunately, no Tiger Woods this year but he is doing his best to stick it to the man who dumped him with a press conference this morning during the tournament. The only downside of the tournament is that it is a 90 min drive south in Tuscon, AZ and the first tee off is at 7:30am. Looks like I will get my long run in on Sunday!

Intervals tonight. The last set before my big race in 9 days! We haw.

How long can your long run be if you are tapering for the Big Race?

Stooge...

Well, it's not normally something I wonder about... but I have had a few occasions where I have heard a blogger talk for the first time and it blew me away because it was NOTHING like how I thought they would sound. It's creepy.

It's like when I talked to my boyfriend on the phone for the first time (we met online). I thought he would sound way different.

You, on the other hand, sound pretty much like envisioned. You get a gold star for that one!

Score for running somewhere to actually do something!

Love those intervals like they're your last ones... oh wait... they are! Yay!!!

Can't wait to go listen to this at home and laugh at your self described nasaly voice.

I think you should jump on the course during play, maybe with your company name eh hem written on your body somewhere. Doesn't that promote a positive work culture?

I'm catching up on the Runners Roundtable podcasts, so I'm looking forward to your appearance! I bought the Hurt Locker as a gift for my hubby since he loves war movies and he said the same thing. He was disappointed in it compared to all the "glowing" reviews we kept hearing about it! Race day coming soon!
