Rainy run

30 Jul

Rainy CentennialToday’s run was much much much better than my last one. My only goal was to finish the scheduled training day (5 min run/1 min walk for 48 min, plus warm up/cool down) without crapping out.

Goal accomplished.

4.1 miles in the rain. Have I mentioned how much I love running in the rain? Minus any lightning of course. It just feels…good.

Oh, and the foot…did just fine! *happy dance*

I know I am such a dork for taking pics of my runs but I like noticing things as I plod by and thinking, that would make a nice photo. And then I share them with you crazies. I figure, if I’m writing about my life with words, why not write about it with pictures too?

the latest on my reading plate

Screen Shot 2013-07-30 at 3.15.43 PMJust finished Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer. I’d tried it once, dropped it, and then picked it up again a few months later. I gave it 5 stars. Its been a while since a book has made me cry and this one did towards the end. Not that it’s exactly difficult to make me cry, but for a book to do so, that’s a feat. I thought the author aptly captured the perspective of a 9 year old boy who had lost his father in 9/11. Interwoven with drama between Oskar’s grandmother and grandfather years before in Dresden and later, in New York, the story unfolds in a heart wrenching, personal tale of a boy searching for something. Closure maybe. Forgiveness perhaps. An excellent read. Thus, my review.

Next up is Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson and It Starts with Food by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig.

brain float

30 Jul

Today = the dentist = nitrous oxide = I AM THE MOST HILARIOUS PERSON IN THE UNIVERSE. For about 40 minutes anyway.

Some thoughts while floating…

  • Don’t stop breathing, keep breathing, take the deepest breaths you have ever taken in your life, don’t waste this precious sh!t.
  • Oh wow, hands and feet are so numb…OMG do I even HAVE hands and feet???
  • I must be the most tense person on earth because I am not this relaxed and loose even while sleeping.
  • Don’t laugh, do not laugh, do not effin’ laugh.
  • Isn’t the color green hysterical??
  • Hygienist asks if I want to buy some sort of fluoride home treatment gel…I hear “do you want to buy Florence and the Machine”…well of course I do…I LOVE HER!!!…You mean I can take them home with me???….YES!!!….I’ll take 20!!!
  • And so on…

Good times, good times.
