Man I was doing awesome with hits on this blog then I stopped sharing my wealth of insights via the World Wide Web and low and behold less visitors. Sad face.
Ok well I was going to blog tomorrow but I’m all wound up NOW! (And no, not one ounce of booze is in my system, this is au natural).
I’m not 100% shooting to BQ in Sacramento but that be pretty freaking awesome. I wish I could have raced a half just to gauge my times but…life goes on. I swear I want the Boston jacket so bad!
I got it!!!!! Tonight at TJ Maxx. Only $29.99
What the hell am I working my arse off for?
Oh yeah. It’s not about the over priced jacket with the silly my little pony unicorn (thanks friend for that idea). For me it’s about hard freaking work. 8 years ago I couldn’t run around the block, ok that’s a slight exaggeration but I was really winded. Then I ran a 5k in 30 minutes and thought I was a rock star. Years later a half marathon, and now the full 26.2. So because I’m measured goal oriented person this sport
leisure activity works really well for me. I guess the next “logical” step is to BQ. Obviously I’m not particularly talented (I HATE that fact) but I have a goal. A vision? It’s me with that dam jacket and I’ll pay 200$ at Boston if I have to but I’ll be damned if I walk around with a unicorn I did not earn. Although it did cross my mind to buy the dam thing and sell it on eBay. True story.
Oh…and how about the NYC marathon getting canceled last minute?! Yikes that sucks!! They never should have said it was on in the first place. My heart goes out to those folks trying to rebuild their homes and lives; and to some of the runners who already made the trek to NYC to run only to be shut out. Ugh!
What does the Boston jacket mean to you? Anyone know the story behind the unicorn? Thoughts on NYC?
