Funny Foto Friday: Texts From My Dog

First, a quick update on my running. This week hasn't gone 100%.  I've been battling a bit of a knee issue that has me a bit (a lot) freaked out and frustrated. I'm 2 weeks away from the Eugene marathon and I'm being extra cautious and doubling down on anything that I think will help fix it.  


So, I bailed on a 11 mile tempo run after 5 miles, and I cut the makeup tempo run from 15 miles to 12 (which, turned out to be pretty solid - last 6 @ 6:30 pace), but I still had knee discomfort, looseness, and itching as I ran 8 recovery today.  I'm going to  run 20 easy tomorrow but then am going to cut my miles WAY back to try to take care of it before the race.  Fingers crossed!

I recently ran across a GREAT website http://textfromdog.tumblr.com/ that posts screenshots of text message conversations between a dude and his dog. I am not sure why I think these are so funny - but for some reason I could totally see a dog typing these out while he is hanging out at the house waiting for his owner to get home. Hilarious.  Happy Friday!




Bonus #1!
When I was younger (years ago), I liked everything nice and organized (my wife will CERTAINLY disagree with that - but let's pretend).  One of my random "things" was that I liked a clean refrigerator - nothing on the front.  No particular reason, but I did.  ANYWAY, as I was getting ready this morning I realized something......... I think I TOTALLY won this argument. Standing STRONG!!!  **Rockfist**


Bonus #2!!
Finally, I saw this Nike commercial / video on twitter and had to share. A little cute, a little reverse sexist, but still pretty funny. Although, I have to admit that as I watched it I thought to myself "So the dude looks like me....sweat, out of breath, death, etc.  But the chick?? All that running and not a hair out of place? And is she wearing foundation!?"  Turns out, when I watch YouTube videos, I turn into a snarky girl. Happy Friday!

I can't even put into words how much I love Texts from Dog. I asked my husband if he was secretly writing it because I swear that is our dog.

My fridge!

And dude had to run through cities at night...he was already tired from a long day. Chick got to run by the beach and through beautiful nature. Totally not fair.

And honestly, I think she looked a little "Stepford".

Cut the 20 down and put yourself on defense, it will mollify the freaking out!

Awesome dog texts. Awesome chick Nike video - especially KC being the "Paris of the Plains". Thanks for ending my week on a grin as usual.

Andrea said...

Sorry your knee is being a tool. Getting old? heh.

Love the Run to You video...Texts from Dog = *yawn* I mean a sprinkling of profanity is fu-nay...but in each sentence - yawn.

Adam Ricklefs said...

Andrea - Agreed with you on the F bombs in the txts. Would have been just as funny without them I think.

Getting old sucks, but is better than the alternative! (Being Madonna)
