I’m alive!! In spite of what many people have thought, I did not die of
The winner of the FinishSafe ID is: Kelly @ A Journey to a Better Me! (I’ll spare you from the screenshot of the random number generator.) Shoot me and email and I'll get it mailed to you. Now, I know that there was a collective groan / slam fist on the desk at even the thought that you didn’t win the contest. However, what is the one thing that is better than a way to notify your love ones when you get hit by a car? A free Back To the Future Delorean! Of COURSE!

Race Day Date Mixup
Do you remember that race that I’ve been training 6 months for? The race that I’ve canceled running other races for? Ran 70 miles per week for? I about missed the F’ing thing!! Rock and Roll races are 95% on Sunday. That gives them the opportunity to have the expo on Friday and Saturday, have lots of time to prepare, etc. Well, not in Georgia. Thank god I received a facebook message from the GeorgiaSnail telling me about the Weather on Saturday. I honestly can’t make this stuff up. Check out the messages:
I know I’ve said before, but during the workday, I’m an IT consultant. Basically what that means is that I run around screaming things like “synergies!” and “value add!” and then proceed to make a power point presentation that contains 80 slides with lots of pictures. (For the “office” people who read my blog, that line above was Hil-arious) As you can tell from my 4 day blog hiatus, I’ve been BUSY at work. I’ve taken on another client that is taking on a lot of my “free” time. You know, the time between 2am and 4am that I "wasted" sleeping before.
For the first time in many years, I wasn’t able to put together my own Halloween costume. (Previous years have included Napoleon Dynamite, Super Mario Brothers, and the Oxy Clean guy) For that matter, I didn’t even get to see any “sexy” witch/hobo/vampires. One might think that Halloween was all but wasted! But, wait! We did dress up my little man in a giraffe costume. (What sound does a giraffe make? I was telling him that it makes a sound very similar to a sick or dying elephant) Fortunately for you, there are two things they teach you in parenting prep classes:
- You will get pooped on. Some of it might even get in your mouth at one point. Just deal with it
- Make sure to shove pictures of your kid down everyone’s throat at any and every given opportunity. People will smile and say “cute”, and it never gets old
