A Little Bit of This…and That

This post is typical of how I feel by Friday, all over the place.  I feel like I blink and days, weeks and months go by…This week has been a doozy, and I’m not sure why it went by so slowly. The weather was finally nice!

This weekend is the base air show.  If anyone local is looking for something to do, it’s open to the public.  There are going to be several flight demonstrations with both fighter planes as well as tanker aircraft.  It should be a lot of fun. It’s open to anyone military or not.

While we will be attending part of the Air Show, my husband and I are making the trek up tomorrow morning to Jersey City to run the Newport 10k.  To be honest, my legs don’t feel that great to race but what can you do.  We are going to have a great time seeing friendly faces like Danielle, Amelia, Ashley and Erica Sara.  The field is fast, and if I can make the top 10 in my age group, I’ll be ecstatic. Is there anyone else going?

I’ve also been cooking a lot more.  LOLZ blog will probably never be a foodie blog, but I’ve been learning to cook more easy and quick recipes.  We are both out of the house a lot, so the last thing either my husband and I want to do is cook when we get home.

I recently ordered The Athletes Fix on Velopress and tried my hand at some of the recipes.  My favorite recipe so far has been the bacon tart. It’s quick, healthy and easy.  My husband was also shocked at how good they are.

The book itself is great for any athlete.  It dissects different diets and food intolerances.  I’m fortunate not to have any food intolerances, but my husband recently discovered he might be lactose intolerant.  It’s an easy read, and there are a lot of runner-friendly recipes.

My apologies because this post is all over the place.  If you know me in real life, then you know that is how I operate.  Speaking of random, Happy Friday the 13th.  Hope it’s uneventful for you.

Friday Five: Unlucky Pi

This week has two functional events:

Friday the 13th and tomorrow is Pi Day

Today is Friday the 13th!  Again!  I graduated high school on Friday the 13th and I was about 10 minutes from being born on Friday the 13th…dad always tells me that my punishment for getting out too quick (and being born Thursday the 12th) is that I’m still unlucky.

Here are Five Relevant and Interesting Articles for Friday the 13th:

  1. 13 Facts about Friday the 13th (November is the next month we have one!)
  2. Why is Friday the 13th so unlucky? 
  3. Two Straight Months with Friday the 13th 
    • Random but what did you do on February 13th?  I remember that I was nearly late to work because my car slid on ice.  I guess that isn’t something to be remembered….no harm done.
  4. 13 (More) Facts About Friday the 13th (It’s unclear why it’s feared…yet it is.  I needed an article to tell me that one).
  5. Here is a photo from my high school graduation on Friday June 13th.

Anyways, moving on.  Friday the 13th is unlucky (so stay safe)… 

But…Tomorrow is one of my favorite March Holidays…

Pi day!

Also because it’s 2015…at 9:26 am…it’s some magical time since all the numbers line up.  Many, many moons ago I was a math major in college…so math has a special day in my heart.  I took a lot of math courses in college (I was a math major for a while and decided to go into public health.  Long story short, math and pi day always has a special day in my heart!)

The funny this is, however, I don’t like pie.  (Hashtag #Cake4Life).   I do like Pi though!

Here are some interesting Pi day facts to get your knowledge on:

  5. And because we know I love my memes: pi day meme 2

 

Since my blog generally has nothing to do with pie (but something to do with being unlucky) here are some updates from my personal life.

  1. Wedding planning has got me swamped. We have less than a month to go and it terrifies, overwhelms me and excites me.
  2. My butt is a pain in the butt. I have a post coming out on Sunday about my leg, hip and butt.  We have isolated the problem (somewhat) but there is a lot going on in my left leg.
  3. Make you work, make you work. I am working a lot.  I am busy, with my job…blogging is not my job.  I love you guys but I also love my job.  It’s like a 10 hour black hole of minimum internets.
  4. My facebook page only needs 17 more likes to get to 800. I’m not sure what 800 does for me, but please help me out!
  5. I’ve begun to Spring clean a bit when I have the time.  I have a lot of unused running gear, cool things and whatever else.  Some stuff I bought before trying it on and it doesn’t fit, etc.  I’ve debated doing a massive give away on the blog to people that will use it…or I’ll donate it to Goodwill.

Questions for you:

How will you celebrate Pi day?

What are your plans this weekend?
