Running/Life Updates and Funny Foto Friday!

While I was spending time on my Virtual Race summary, the ideas for other blog posts were still coming. (Side note, I'm continuing to add additional race reports to the post - check them out!)  In fact, the new posts were building pressure like how guys say they build pressure if they don't have sex enough like a cork on a bottle of champagne.  So, instead of posting a bunch of slightly out of date posts, you not only get a funny foto friday (my second favorite type of post) you get a bullet post as well!! (my favorite type of post)


  • Since the virtual race on Saturday, I've ran 35 miles.  The runs at the first part of the week went really well.  The heavens parted I released my man pressure and I hit all of the paces that I wanted.  However, because of some scheduling issues I ran 7 days in a row.  Just like the nice TV man on Sunday morning says "even God rested on the 7th day",  I don't do well with that many days of constant running - which led to a horrible horrible Wednesday marathon pace run.   The Daily Mile entry is here, but essentially just like that horrible night in the Mexican prison I'm trying to forget the run. Which involved a little too much walking and trying not to crap myself.
  • My wife loves me and knows me too well. Do you want to know why? We're married so she is forced to! When I talked to my wife later in the day after my horrible run she said "I saw your 'poop shorts' in the hamper, is that why you had a bad run?".  It wasn't, but I love her for thinking about that.
  • There is a lady at work whose daughter works for a Panera Bread (Cafe / Bakery) type restaurant.  About once a week she'll bring in the day old pastries that would normally be thrown away / donated to a food bank.  Since I'm trying to eat healthier at work, I now hate this lady:

  • Finally, my son is growing like he is on horse steroids don't worry, he isn't - just HGH.  It has been really fun to see him learn and start to become very aware of the world around him.  But as I was kissing him goodbye one morning, I got to thinking. . . . .   when will it no longer be appropriate to kiss him on the mouth and say "daddy loves you!"?  I'm thinking middle school.  Maybe like 9th grade tops.


Now, my funny foto friday.  The Wimbledon finals are tomorrow and Saturday, so I thought this one was appropriate.  The sad thing?  I immediately noticed how ripped her quads looked.  **sigh**, I'm such a runner. Happy Friday!

Who am I kidding?  Anna Kournikova isn't any more of a tennis player than I am a singer

I hate it when I'm trying to eat better and my co-workers bring in pastries. I've been warned, my co-worker is bringing in muffins this morning. I guess to do need to carb up for my 13 tomorrow, right??

"I saw your poop shorts in the hamper..."

Theia said...

But apparently Anna K is qualified to train contestants on the Biggest Loser next season... What the ???

BrianFlash said...

Are you sure that's Kournikova? Maybe you need to put up some more images just to make the ID positive...

fancy nancy said...

That player looks far too healthy to be Anna Kournikova! I saw her on biggest loser and she looked like a skeleton! Sorry about the bad run!

Jess said...

Horse steroids are bad, but horse tranquilizers are fine, right?

XLMIC said...

Pretty unfair of you to crop the male tennis player's picture like that…i can just barely make out the massive balls in his shorts… pocket :P

Nelly said...

Panera is indeed awesome!

Hilarious on the tennis pics, that's one reason why I watch women's tennis! I'm going for Sharapova tomorrow!

Chanda M. DeFoor said...

Ha, ha! I love how the male photo didn't show up until I scrolled down. Hilarious!

BabyWeightMyFatAss said...

That male tennis player looks like he's having a seizure. geesh.
lol.

I think the kissing thing depends on what kind of dad you want to be. I highly encourage you to be the awkwardly close dad that everyone is afraid of. So the kissing thing can continue through college. You know, when you see your son three times a week for dinner, because twice a week isn't nearly enough. You son will grow up to be a special kind of man!

Mrs G said...

The male tennis looks like Jim Breuer on crack LOL

JnetRuns said...

Um, that's Tatiana Golovin not Anna Kournikova (who's waaaay skinnier).

Your son is just so cute.

Adam said...

JnetRuns. I was wondering!!! I asked three people and got *i dunno* from all of them.

Satan makes the pastries. And the donuts. I am sure of it.

LOVE the pics and your wife rocks. :)

Pam said...

Whoever she is, she does have some killer quads. And her boobs ain't half bad either.

Steve said...

Bullet points AND Funny Foto Friday - Better than Fireworks!

Christina said...

It looks like he is a wuss, faking being hit by the ball. WIMP!

kilax said...

Evil evil pastries! I bet half of the office loves her and half hates her.

Seven days of running? INSANE! Cool that you made it that far with only the 7th run being crappy!
