My entire blog that I wrote crashed in the middle of the night between Christmas Eve and Christmas. Oh Boo. That is okay though because I think I fell asleep around 9 and woke up at 9 the next day. My body must have been running on empty.
Anywho-I’m decently behind in the getting to know me days so here are days 8-10. I’m not lazy I swear!
Day 8: A photo that makes you laugh.
My cat because one day she’ll be a famous lolz cat. My cat is such a diva and I love it. I miss her so much as school and she sleeps right next to me every night. Well sometimes she decides my head is more to her liking.
My cat is also Americas Next Top Model. Basically if you live in my life you are destined to be ANTM. (I don’t have an addiciton with that show-I swear.)
Day 9: Someone who has been with you through thick and thin.
Easy Peasy. Anna! She has been my best friend since 7th grade and believe me if you could talk to me then, you are true friend. You think I’m socially awkward now? Just think of me during awkward middle school times ha. She is such a great friend of mine and I don’t know what I would do without her.
Woo now that we got all that out of the way, do you feel more enlightened on my life?
I woke up today at 9am. I had already received about 10 text messages wishing me a Holly Jolly Christmas. Some people just think they are oh so clever. I also got a few texts later asking if I was going to deck their halls. As if it was some sort of new joke. I’m not even born in the Christmas time, I’m born in July. I often wonder if I was named after the Holly tree that grew beside our old house. Ha.
I also got some new jeans, boots, another starbucks coffee mug and warm socks. I collect coffee mugs so my brother normally gets me a new starbucks one every year. Did I mention Anna got me 1000 more headbands? I think my parents (or Santa) were trying to say something getting me “legging jeans” from the gap. They always make fun of me for not wearing jeans. I do love gap jeans though so I’m super excited for more.
My brother, Matt, got a bunch of new ridiculous running clothes. If you thought I liked my obnoxious running clothes, he is 10 times worse. As seen by prerunning 10 mile photo. My brother Matt, me and my dad go for a nice long run to get out of my mom’s hair while she is cooking. My other brother Steven, who is not interested in running anymore goes off to BMX bike. We went for a nice 10 mile run around the neighborhood and area. I love running with my brother and dad. It is such a nice change of pace versus lonely runs.
I made baked pineapple for the family. It was such a hit at school, I thought why not make it at home. This time I use cinnamon bread which is delicious. I never thought pineapple could go so well with everything.
I have also been compiling my half marathon schedule for the next six months. So if there are any near you let me know (that is including you are okay with having to deal with me for 13.1 miles plus before and after the race. It’s totally understandable if you aren’t.)
March 6 Servna Park, MD
March 13 Rock Hill, NY
April 10 Ithaca, NY
May 1 Rochester. NY
May 15 Binghampton NY
May 22 Philadelphia Versus Williamsburg (I will have finished exams that Friday so do I want to Rush back home or stop at Philly?)
I’m most certainly doing the two bolded, but I’m deciding what else I will be doing.
I wanted so desperately to do the Shamrock Half in VA Beach but of course my spring break is the week before.
Questions for you:
What’s your race schedule? Running? Swimming? Biking? Triathlons? Kayacking?
How was your Christmas?
Do you prefer skinny jeans or boot leg? (or bell bottoms?)
I personally love skinny jeans if I’m going to wear any sort. But not too tight. I hate tight jeans and refuse to wear them. That is also why I have a small collection of belts. You will see more of those as the summer progresses and I decide it is jeans and shorts time.
