Race Prep, billionaire idea, serving up my dignity

I haven’t done a straight up “here’s my life” bullets post in far too long (Read: maybe like a week, tops).  Here’s whats been going on…..

Hey look, it is me!
This week is race week!  The PF Changs Rock and Roll Arizona Marathon (PFCRnRAZM for short) is this Sunday!  On one hand I’m relaxed because it is a home town race, but on the other hand I’m freaking out a bit because. . . . you know. . .ZOMG!!??!?!!!111!!!!1! IT’S A MARATHON!  Not only am I taking Friday off to spend the best 3 hours of my life at the expo, but I’m working on hydrating as much as possible all week long.  Which, of course, means that I’m peeing like a horse.  Which is good, because people say that I have another part of my body that is like a horse’s.  My Face. My teeth. (What were you thinking?)

I have a race strategy rolling around in my head, but I’m going to make you wait until Saturday until I make it public. (Such a tease!)  It is sort of an all or nothing approach that involves “go run a marathon” and “don’t die”.

On Friday, I tweeted: “I’m going to start selling office chairs in the color: ‘Crumbs from eating lunch at your desk’.  I will be a billionaire.”  Although, I wouldn’t have to do the entire chair, just that triangle part at the front near your crotch where the crumbs seem to collect.  I’d call it the “crumb color crotch”.  Let me stress – BILLIONAIRE.
Wasn't this on The Matrix movie?

Over the holiday, I received a nice set of chocolates from my boss at work.  Of course, as if to say “really fatty, eating the whole box huh?” they put the nutrition facts in VERY plain sight when you opened the box.  Serving size: my dignity.

For Christmas, my mom got me an entire wine decanting set.  Like I needed yet another reason to love wine more than I already do.  I’ve tried it out a few times and it does make the wine taste better.  The best part though?  I can pour an ENTIRE bottle of wine in the thing and it barely makes a dent.  Makes me feel a bit better when I polish the entire thing off!  “But common mom, I only drank like 1” of the decanter!

Finally, a picture of my son – just because.  Being a baby is exhausting.

Your son is getting so big!

That chair thing reminds me of South Park for some reason.

Good luck on hydrating this week.

Wow, that acronym sure is a time-saver.

That chair is unbelievable.

Could we tandem market your 'crumb color crotch' chair with a maternity shirt that has a ketchup/grease/burger juice spotted pattern? Like yours, it only needs to be on a very specific part - just the four inches or so below the boobs.

We're going to be so rich.

I love acronyms and your son is so cute! I love the pics!!!

decanter = amazing...but I prefer the bottle!

Jamoosh said...

Damn - look how bronzed you are. And those abs! I am going to make you take over The Hard CORE Club!

one decanter = how many boxes of wine? lol

Jess said...

Gotta love a baby pic! It IS hard being a baby -- think of all that sleep you have to deprive your parents of -- that's not easy work!

Brian said...

Good luck on Sunday. I hope you meet all your goals (not just "run a marathon" and "don't die", even though those are the most important ones!)

Good luck this weekend- run like you stole something and the dude chasing you is HUGE.

Also if that were actually you, I wonder how your blog traffic would change?

Just kidding, I heard marathon running fathers were the new 'in' physique. None o them abs or anything these days. Fitness mag will be in contact anyday now!

Chair - decanter
Chair - decanter
Chair - decanter

Too tough of a call.

Good luck - looking forward to your RR/PR post.

Jill said...

Good luck, Adam...will be rooting for ya on Sunday.

Hayden is super precious!

Excellent post!

And yes, getting a wine decanter a couple years back changed my enjoyment of said wine. It was a "Duh" moment. I guess they do make those things for a reason.

Have a great race this weekend. I ran PFCRnRAZM in 2010 and set my fastest time... you have to represent for the home town. Enjoy it.

I think your chair needs a decanter holder. You know, like a cup holder only decanter size.

Good luck in the race!

And coincidentally, I dropped some bread crumbs on my desk, chair and office carpet reading your post...working through lunch a.k.a I have no life.


Morgan said...

That decanter is monster!!!

Have fun hydrating and carb loading this week!!!

Nice wine decanter! I got one for a birthday a couple years ago. My wife really wanted one, so my brother and his wife thought it would be a great idea to get me one for her for my birthday. I still hate that thing we used once...

Laura said...

I am VERY confused by that chair. Is it a leg press machine? Does it somehow have a pull bar for a chest press? It looks to me like workout equipment but maybe I just have that on the brain.

track coach and adorable wife said...

I hope you kill it this weekend, but of course you will!

That kid of yours is getting cuter all the time!

I've always wondered how you clean that wine decanter?
