Thursday Thoughts: Random as (insert curse word here)

I guess the title makes it more PG right?  I think when Amanda decided she was going to do a thinking out loud link up…she meant for it be a random collection of thoughts.  I am random and these are some thoughts I’ve had this week (after gathering them from my twitter).  Plus I haven’t done a Throwback Thursday in a while so I thought I would include that too.

This week has been a random week of getting back into the groove (after my homecation) and trying to clean up my house.  To be honest, I’ve gotten back into the work groove easily but getting my house clean has been another story.

It has been extremely chilly on the East Coast.  I’m not complaining, it’s just a fact.  I’m lucky that I’m taking a mileage cut week for running. I had planned to run about 40 miles last week but with my shake out run and long run, I was still at 160.  Therefore this week I committed to taking a lot of recovery days.  It’s always better safe than sorry. I will probably go run on the treadmill in a bit actually.

I’m making a trip to Upstate New York in a few weeks to visit some of my best friends.  I’m really excited for the adventures but not for the cold.  While I did go to school up in the tundra, since moving away I feel more and more like a baby.  Heck I don’t even like 30 degrees anymore (where I went to school there were a few -30 degree days).  I always feel bad for my friends up that way.

Speaking of running, I updated my tentative 2015 racing schedule.  If you are doing any of the races, please let me know! I love to meet up and hang out with people.  I’ve been needing to clean up LOLZ blog.  I’m going to update my racing page, diner page and other random pages in the near future.  Blogging is so stressful and hardwork (LOLZ).

On a very random note, this is a pretty cool article.  I’m not a football fan but these people were scammed 500 dollars for Broncos play off tickets.  One of my personal friends Kevin B gave them his tickets.  I already knew Kevin was a seriously incredible individual but this proves it even more.  He is a great individual and runner.  Words cannot express how awesome Kevin is and this random act of kindness proves it even more.

Finally for throwback Thursday (I haven’t done one in ages) here are some relative January photos:

In 2012, I visited Lake Placid on the coldest day of my life.  It was -30 without the windchill.

Last January, I pretended to skiiing...when in reality I saw inside with my future inlaw and drank coffee.  (But I supported T and his dad...so it counts)

So that is my random thoughts of the week.  I don’t think you feel anymore or less enlightened since spending a few minutes browsing LOLZ blog but happy Thursday.  Enjoy your day.

Questions for you:

What were you doing in January 2011?
