Funny Foto Friday: Cake Eating & Neighbors

Today, is going to be a great day.  I slept through the night (a rarity), I had some wicked strange dreams (but nothing sexual), and I'm going to a baseball game tonight - my son's first!

Tomorrow I have race 4 of 5 in my summer series of 5Ks.  I have to admit that racing that many races within close proximity of each other, while fun, starts to take the "special" nature away from racing.  Fortunately, this one will be another family run with me jogging beside my wife and kid.  Does anyone else feel that if they race week after week after week it starts to become less fun?  Looks like I'm going to have to inject a little Adam to up the fun factor.

So, to celebrate the awesome day, I might have some fun with my neighbor. . . . . or eat a little cake.  Either way, it's going to be awesome.  Happy Friday!



Especially when its my burf'day in 4 days!

When all is said and done, I'll run close to 20 races this year at distances from 2 miles to marathon. So far I haven't hit the 'not special' mark but I think two per month is probably my limit, at least while I still have to work for a living.

Sorry to hear that about your dreams.

It took me a minute to figure out why that picture and its caption are SO FRICKIN FUNNY!!!! but now that I do, i keep going back to look at it and laughing hilariously.

This year I've run quite a 5Ks after only a few last year, and I've kind of rediscovered how fun they are. In previous years, though, when I was racing a little more and running the same ones in consecutive years, it got a little stale. This year we got some new ones, including one including a lap around a horse-racing track. new races and funny or interesting locations help keep it interesting, I think.

I love having weird dreams. It's like getting to watch TV at night. Last night, for example, I dreamed that a family of owls was nesting in my kitchen. We wanted to call the local animal control company (which we are sadly very well acquainted with) to retrieve them, but the babies were really cute!

Cute sandals! I'd want one!

Yeah, I try to spread out races evenly, because it is stressful to plan for them and then actually get to them and do them.

I've been racing very little, but I can see how doing so regularly might take a little of the "special" away.

Happy early birthday!

Totally saw your Doppleganger this morning on Good Morning America. Crowd shot for some concert in Central Park and BAM! The Boring Runner making a trademark goofy face at the camera. Guess it wasn't you or maybe it would have gotten a mention in your blog? Enjoy your family 5K.

Amazing it's your son's first birthday game tonight - they sure start them young in AZ!

Running Moose said...

I hope that's not a video of a baseball celebration...his hand's been there a loooong time...and their high fiving each other over it! Just wrong...there's no room for as slapping in sports...unless it's a bedroom sport

Running Moose said...

Oh yeah, races close together...I did 3 in a week back at the end of May/beginning of June and I loved it! I have only done one since then and I have been missing the atmosphere. Each race is separate- enjoy them all for what they are! Why? Because you can!!

You know me, I really spread out my races. Make sure you tweet your 5k time and include me. Please.

BTW, I went to BevMo today, you can buy a bottle of wine and get the second for $0.05. You should stock up for your bday.

Happy early birthday!

I totally think racing is less fun (or "special") when you do it over and over and over and don't really take time off in between. I have noticed that a lot lately. I raced too much this spring and got burnt out.

Enjoy the game tonight with your son! Racing totally loses its luster if its done as much as the training. However, 5K series can be very exciting if they're run well and have a continuous core group of runners. And be nice to thy neighbor...
