It seems like it is the time of year where I can’t go to Walmart to restock my weekly poptart and fruitsnack supply (read: healthfood) without being inundated by hundreds of
It’s the same at work. Everyone is trying to get last minute things locked down before the holidays – when everyone presumably crack open the hard liquor and talks about the crazies at Walmart. So, I’m doing my best to be a good little solider at work, make sure my son doesn’t hurt himself, and finish all of my Christmas shopping before all of the good flavors of PopTarts are gone. Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like 800 calories of blueberry!
I am finally at a place where I feel like I am no longer “sick”. I really only cough
Trimming the fat
I seem to be having a hard time crafting my long, verbose, drunken monkey blog posts as of late. I have 4 posts started, but none finished. GAH! As a result, I’m going to try to make them a bit shorter and punchier. All the snark, half the blubber (which is going to be the name of my biography). I imagine that my blog will eventually morph into a string of sentence fragment zingers making fun of poop, Mario Lopez, and running in equal quantities.
Virtual means it is better
Finally, the BIG announcement is that I have an iPhone app!!! While I don’t talk about it a TON here, I am a running coach offering personal week by week training plans. At $50/month that isn’t an option for everyone so I wanted to be able to help even more people go from where they are now to the finish line of a half marathon or a marathon. Welp, I hooked up with a developer friend Chad and put my knowledge to code and came up with this!
From the blurb on the website: The Virtual Run Coach is your personal run coach – in the palm of your hand! Generate customized half or full marathon training plans from 12 weeks to 32 weeks long, helping you go from the couch to the finish line or from an established runner to a new Personal Best!
You can check it out a million places, specifically iTunes store, website, twitter, facebook. I’ll do a full post on the development process, but if you are looking for some guidance on a race, have an iphone, and aren’t sure where to go – it is certainly worth $2 to check it out! Plus, you'll be helping out my poptart fund. Isn't that reason enough right there?
BONUS!! I took my son to Bass Pro shop to see Santa (beats the shit out of the mall x 100000) and I'm PRETTY sure that the chick in the stripes photo bombed me!
