Butt hurt, Cutting down trees, and Lolo is a nono

First, let me start off by saying that I hate all of you with your 48 degree morning run posts. The high here today is “only” supposed to be 93 – but only because the humidity is 84%. Look forward to those shirtless January run posts from me when it is 65 degrees.

Last weekend I was hanging with my son all weekend and just couldn’t drag myself on the treadmill for 20 miles…. Or 10 miles…. Or any miles. (Treadmill because it was 105 degrees.) I tried to make up for it the best I could with a 13.1 mile run the day after. Not ideal, but at least it is something.  This week is going better for sure. After that 13.1, I had a great (albeit short) marathon paced run where I ran 1 warm up and 5 all around 6:55. I’m not in PR shape, and certainly not in sub 3:00 marathon shape, but I’m in “respectable” shape which is good enough for me.

I heard the term “butt hurt” the other day and found it hilarious. As in: “oh jeeze, runners get so butt hurt about being called joggers”. I want to start using it more, but I can’t tell if it is derogatory or sexual or something else. I just like it because, you know, butts. Sigh, words are hard.

Lolo Jones was on Dancing With the Stars this season.  Note that I said WAS. She got the boot on the first vote off. I don’t watch the show (busy doing my nails, obviously) but I suppose now without her celebrity dancing career to fall back on she is just going to have to go back to one of the many olympic sports she races in.  Life is hard.

Finally, this past weekend my son was CONVINCED that we were cutting down the 35’ tree in the front of my house. You can sort of see the scale of it in this pic to the left:

I think that he got the idea because I cut down a dying / struggling tree that was half the size of it. Either way, starting at 4:50am on Saturday here is how the conversation with my little lumberjack went:

I am butt hurt that you haven't heard the saying "butt hurt". What is happening to America?

Gracie said...

Personal opinion: Lolo Jones ain't all that.

Pam said...

I put "butt hurt" on the same level as "awesomesauce" and "amazeballs"

If you use it, we probably can't be friends.

Be thankful you're not here! Temps are around 28-30C and the humidity is super high!

So is the tree still standing after all the melodrama? :P

Butt hurt is a fairly poplar term with some people around here. I don't think I've ever used it, but it's so perfect for some situations.

I'm jealous of the 84% humidity. We are at 96%. said...

UGH, yeah I have to admit the weather has been absolutely gorgeous for running around these parts...that being said I can't run so there is no real advantage for me.

I think the term butt hurt is hilarious too. I can never decide when I will appropriately use it though.
