I’m going to start off by saying I’ve been a horrible blogger lately. Just horrible. Life is consuming me.
First off: Ladies, click this link right now. It will be the cutest thing you see all day. Gents, you should probably click it too.
Second: I have to even out a cute link with a hilarious one. I saw this last night and tears were streaming down my face from laughing so hard. I think I’m amused because it reminds me of myself as a kid. I seriously did this. I put the blame 100% on my sister because she never wanted to play with me.
Third: My recap of Homecoming weekend in Iowa through pictures. (For those of you who don’t know, I’m a University of Iowa grad).
2 things Homecoming Taught Me:
- I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: one of my children will go to the University of Iowa. If they don’t, I’ll disown all of them.
- I am growing up. And getting old. The bars are nothing like they used to be. Or else I just have higher standards now. But they are disgusting…there was a cockroach on the bathroom floor at Summit. It’s always fun to go back, but it’s definitely a different environment from when I was in college.
Running update: Welp, I took a week off running. After the most stressful work week to date, events every day after work, and Iowa Homecoming last weekend, I just didn’t have the time or energy to run. But I’m back at it this week. I even woke up at 5:30 yesterday to get 5 miles in before work! I love those days. I set my alarm to do it again this morning. Did it happen? Nope.
I have two and a half weeks until the St. Louis Half. I’m still going for a sub-2 hour half, but if I won’t be surprised if I don’t do it. I haven’t been nearly as dedicated to my training as I should. Oh well… we’ll see how Oct 21st goes.
This weekend I’m off to Minneapolis to visit friends and watch the Twin Cities Marathon. My best friend’s boyfriend is running and I plan on taking my SLR to snap some sweet shots. I’m so excited for this weekend, which has made this week possibly the longest week ever.
I leave you with a beat I’ve been playing on repeat. Enjoy.
